San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Powder Room

Sometimes it’s the smallest spaces that have such a big impact. That was the case with the Powder Room by Julie Rootes Interiors located just off the foyer in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Julie lined the walls in Jim Thompson’s “Tibetan Sun” silk fabric – rich in earthy color and chic honeycomb pattern (personal fave). The warm gold and chocolate brown wallcovering is paired with luxe 24-karat gold and onyx mosaic glass tile and a fabulous hexagon niche in gilded metal. The raw edged calacatta marble vanity delivers an additional opulent touch. An unexpected image of a person swimming adorns the space and was commissioned specifically for the room by artist Eric Zener.

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Kitchen & Family Room

The first thing to catch my eye in the kitchen of this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase by Navarra Design was the traditional La Cornue range and hood in glossy chocolate with brass detailing. (swoon) It was coupled with a contemporary verre églomisé backsplash (gilded glass) featuring dandelions. It’s a magical combo. Navarra keeps the inset cabinetry clean in a crisp white, yet adds a contrasting cerused oak island. The kitchen space is unified with striking calacatta marble countertops. The metal and wood bar counter is an unexpected element placed perpendicular to the island and is the perfect spot for the homeowner’s kids. The high lacquer ceiling in teal blue was a wonderful way to incorporate a burst of color and bring the kitchen and family room together. The family room’s breakfast nook is set in the window and delivers breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay. (it’s lovely)

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Dining Room

The striking formal dining room in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase was created by Cecile Starin. In addition to being trained as a fine art painter, graphic illustrator and interior designer, Cecile was a fashion designer for over twenty years. Her extensive experience is most evident in her design projects and most recently in the creation of the showcase’s formal dining space. For the room’s design, Cecile brings a raw, modern twist to the controlled, classical architectural details by incorporating street art into the setting. The noted San Francisco street muralist, Ian Ross was commissioned to create the bold black and white abstract murals to mimic ocean wave patterns and wild flora found off the Northern California coast. The colorful, recycled aerosol “Spray Can” sculptures flanking the fireplace are also by Ian.  The furnishings are too a mixture of modern and classical. For example, a large circular table with a galvanized top and earthy root base are paired with timeless Loius XVI black patent leather chairs. The eye-catching Italian LED chandelier for NIDO Living SF features a set of four concentric burnished brass rings. It’s stunning.

I love the design’s juxtaposition of contemporary street art with classical, glamorous luxury. What a feat Cecile has pulled off here! Hope you have a chance to see this room and showcase for yourself.

San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 :: Sneak Peek

This year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase is a beautiful Elizabethan-style home designed by iconic architect Julia Morgan (notable works include the legendary Hearst Castle and became the first woman to be awarded the American Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal). The residence located on Jackson street in the prestigious Presidio Heights neighborhood, was completed in 1917 for $20,000 for Abraham Rosenberg, the “Dried Fruit King” and his wife, Alice.

In the last few months, thirty-eight Bay Area interior designers have transformed the six bedroom, eight bath home for the San Francisco University High School’s 38th annual Decorator Showcase. Gorgeous light fixtures, exquisite furnishings and extraordinary wallcoverings had me visiting spaces more than once on my tour. Here’s a sneak peek of the showcase:
