Not long ago, I was so excited to share with you the process and progress for my teenage girl's room at the Elle Décor Showcase.
Well, I am back again to announce that I have been working for the last few months on a very special showcase house: the dining room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase house.
This is the fifth Showcase project on which I've worked. I'm beyond excited to work on such a wonderful space this year.
From the moment I walked into the dining room, I knew that I loved it. I feel in love with the high ceilings (14 feet), the windows and the scale of the space.
Sadly, the hand painted Chinoiserie mural had seen better days, so I made the decision to replace it with something new - to go in a completely new direction.
When I wrote about designing my last showcase space, I talked a little about pushing myself to new limits and new directions. I am doing the same thing again with this space. I'm having a wonderful time trying something new and different. This will be my version of a classic space but with a colorful modern twist. Working with each of my vendors has been a privilege - from custom furniture design, window treatments, decorative painting and lighting.
I am so excited to share with you more of the progress. Only three more weeks until the house opens.
Make sure to check back for updates, before and after photos and the process involved.
If you live in San Francisco, you can check out the showcase house at 2950 Vallejo Street (between Lyon and Baker) in Pacific Heights. Open April 30th - May 30th.
Since 1977, the annual San Francisco Decorator Showcase has benefited San Francisco University High School's financial aid program, raising over $11 million in its 33 years.
