Highlights From the San Francisco Decorator ShowcaseAuthor:Jordan Kushins
It was misting in San Francisco yesterday when the doors opened at Villa de Martini, the ultra-swanky Telegraph Hill estate hosting the 38th annual Decorator Showcase. The grey skies and bit of drizzle left the grounds glistening, while the whole home—both inside and out—offered a vibrant vision of Bay Area creativity in every niche. This year, over 25 designers, firms, studios, and more each took over parts of the Mediterranean 6,100-square-foot concrete construction, transforming walls, floors, fixtures, and furnishings with a range of styles that reflected an impressive breadth of talent in the city (and beyond).
It takes a lot to distract the eye from the epic views offered from on high–sweeping from Pac Heights to the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz to Richmond and Berkeley across the water–but there is just so, so much great stuff to see on-site. Proceeds from the monthlong event–running from April 30th through May 30th, 2016–proceed San Francisco University High School’s financial aid program; purchase tickets here, and in the meantime, enjoy some of our fave moments from the press preview.
