Yesterday, the 44th Annual San Francisco Decorator Showcase opened its doors, revealing 28 vibrant spaces including five bedrooms, five full baths, one half bath, a game room, a movie room, an elevator, a laundry room, and an assortment of rooms with an emphasis on entertaining. Located inside a stunning 18th-Century-style Mediterranean Spanish house that was built in 1927 by renowned architects Hyman and Appleton and is in San Francisco’s beautiful Sea Cliff neighborhood, the 6,100-square-foot home features vast view of the San Francisco Bay, Golden Gate Bridge, and Marin Headlands.

Open to the public April 29–May 29 (Tuesdays through Sundays), all proceeds from the tour ticket price directly benefit the San Francisco University High School Financial Aid Program. Since its inception, the Decorator Showcase has raised over $17 million for the program that allows hundreds of deserving Bay Area students access to a world-class, college preparatory education.  Here, we share a preview of give show-stopping spaces that will draw you in, to see the rest of the designer destination.
