Shop The Look: Cynthia Spence Shops for the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase

















Upon learning about her selection for designing the vestibule in the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, Cynthia Spence of Cynthia Spence Design, dove right into her creative exploration.  Drawn to the home’s picturesque views of the San Francisco Bay, she focused on bringing the outdoors into the windowless space by selecting a rich blue palette and iridescent materials that recall the varied hues and reflective qualities of water.

Knowing collaboration is key when it comes to designing a showcase space, Spence enlisted Decorative Painter Elan Evans to develop a custom shimmering wall treatment for the first space and a liquid tin ceiling treatment paired with Holly Hunt cotton velvet teal walls for the second space. She immediately turned to Jeff Holt of HEWN for inspiration to fill the rooms. With two locations in the San Francisco Design Center, HEWN and modern offshoot HEWNX, the designer felt confident HEWN had the perfect pieces to make an unforgetable experience. We asked the designer to share a few pieces she considered for her fabulous space. 

I love the mix of textures on this Matthew Fairbank Design Erland Console Table; a marble top, wooden legs, and brass feet give this piece a sleek, feminine feel:

New to HEWN, I can’t resist the gorgeous color of Lindström Rugs’ Laguna from the Geode Collection:

Paul Ferrante’s Pia Ceiling Fixture harkens to Art Deco and works beautifully with the architecture of the Showcase home:

With its elegant silhouette and jewelry-like details, Madeline Stuart’s Chinois Bench would be perfect at the end of the bed for a fresh pop of color:


I can imagine creating an environmental cocoon in my own dining room using Maya Romanoff’s Weathered Metals hand-painted wallpaper in Indigo. The dark blue hue is truly a neutral:


In addition to the Maya Romanoff wallpaper, I would love to use two of Fuse Lighting’s London Pendants over my long wood table in my dining room:


Philomela Fabrics’ Tabernacle in Sea is an intricately patterned textile that can be blown up to enlarge both its delicate and bold lines:
