The opening night party for the San Francisco Decorator Showcase is an event I look forward to every year…dressing up, seeing my design pals, viewing great design, what could be better?
Benefiting the scholarship program for San Francisco University High School, this year’s Showcase was set in the tranquil, beautiful Marina District with a “not to be missed” view that spanned from the Golden Gate Bridge to Angel Island. Wow indeed.
Having seen the home before the decorator’s performed their magical transformation, the Spanish Revival home was a bit of a quandary. While the exterior of the home exuded a 1920s architectural style, the interior had been stripped of every nuance and detail depicting its original era. Needless to say, I was fascinated to see what would/could be done with something so bland on the inside. The home truly became a study of dark and light.
It was a delightful, albeit very crowded, party and I’m excited to share a few shots I got between a cocktail, a catch up, and an hors d’oeuvre or three.
