Sneak Peek :: Peninsula Volunteers Decorator Show House 2013

cobblestone driveway with fountain - Woodside California

One of the last great estates on the San Francisco Peninsula is the home of the 2013 Peninsula Volunteers Inc. Decorator Show House. Located in Woodside, California just south of San Francisco, the 11,000 square foot 1930′s Monterey Colonial features 20 beautifully decorated designer rooms and is situated on a 21-acre estate with breathtaking vistas of the hillside.  This is the first designer home event on the Peninsula in a decade, so it’s quite special for us that live nearby.
