Explore the 2016 SF Decorator Showcase


Once a year, the west coast's best interior designers come together to wow us with dreamy designs as part of a feel-good project called the SF Decorator Showcase. This year's home took us to Telegraph Hill, to a Mediterranean-style villa built in 1929, for the project's 39th installment. In addition to featuring a range of styles and decorative motifs, this year's group found ways to inject personality into the home's nooks and corners, including a few imaginative ceiling designs. They also played with color, texture, patterned tile, and of course weave in the stunning San Francisco landscape visible from the home's many windows. Take the virtual tour below and perhaps you'll find inspiration for your own decor projects.

Living Room: Antonio Martins, Antonio Martins Interior Design

Martins' space was designed as an homage to the new SF MOMA, with it's contemporary furniture and accentuated art.

Dining Room: Martin Kobus, Martin Kobus Home

The dining room chairs were among our favorite designs in this incredible light-filled space. There are also plenty of interesting details, right down to the tulip centerpiece, which pays tribute to Kobus' Dutch roots. 

Main Floor Study: Stephan Jones, Stephan Jones Interiors

This lovely room played with a cool color palette, statement art, and brass accents to create an inviting space we'd love to spend some serious time in.

Guest Bedroom: Ann Lowengart, Ann Lowengart Interiors

This sugary sweet, feel-good space is a celebration of color, right down to the incredible ceiling.

Office: Ian Stallings, Ian Stallings

If you follow us on Instagram, you already know we're obsessed with the wallpapered ceiling in this sunny upstairs corner. 

Bar: Linda Sullivan, Sullivan Design Studio

Can you imagine unwinding after a long day with a old-fashioned in this chic upstairs bar? Not only do we love the wallpaper and classic cocktail details, but kudos to the designer for transforming an awkward hallway space into one of the home's most fabulous spots.

Master Suite: Tineke Triggs, Artistic Designs for Living

We probably spent the most time in the master suite, taking in the incredible views while also admiring the many artistic touches Triggs left on the space, from nods to David Bowie and Iman to the modern silhouettes and cozy textiles. And that bathtub?! Perfection.

Cloud Terrace: Chih-Wei G.V. Chang, SWA Group

This pollinator-friendly garden offers a dreamy, lavender-tinged perch from which to enjoy sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay.

Kids' Room: Jennifer Wundrow & Heather Brock, Nest Design Co.

This room offers a genius solution for siblings forced to share a room. We can't get over the way the beds are styled with subtle masculine and feminine touches, and yet play so well together. Other highlights include a plush rock pillow installation and a cozy desk nook that would make sitting down to do homework fun.

Lounge: Nancy Evars & Dimitra Anderson, Evars + Andersen

This swanky space is anchored by a green velvet sofa with an art deco silhouette and plenty of fringe. Do we love it? In a word, YES.

Powder Room: Gloria Marth, Gloria Marth Design

This classy yet modern space packs a lot of style despite its size. Marth used patterned tile to echo the architecture of the home - and in particular, the terrace just outside, which you can see upon exiting the powder room.

Garden Room: Heather Hilliard, Heather Hilliard Design

This airy downstairs space is a natural beauty, thanks to both its adjacent verdant terrace, but also it's light, organic modern decor. 

The SF Decorator Showcase is located at 298 Chestnut Street in San Francisco. It's open to the public April 30 through May 30. Tickets are available at the door or online here
