Last Friday we visited the 2014 San Francisco Decorator Showcase House for a (second) peek at how local designers transformed and reimagined different spaces within the 9,000 square-foot Presidio Heights mansion built in 1907.
There were a couple spaces that really stood out, beginning with first impressions – The Entry. The space, designed by Jonathan Rachman Design, was a warm and exciting entry to the home. Standout features such as the unique hair-on-hide rug and back-to-back seating area added elements of luxury and uniqueness.
The Music Room by Steve Henry and Michael Booth of BAMO was cozy and inviting. From the asymetrical stripe on the settee to the gorgeous Jonathon Browning light fixture, this was a room you could spend hours in.
The Living Room by Heather Hilliard was airy, comfortably contemporary, and offered stunning views of The Presidio. The deep blue sofas had a curvaceous, sleek silhouette that contrasted with the geometric side tables and minimal chairs.
The Master Salon and Bathroom by Jaimie Belew were glamorous, feminine spaces with various textures and patterns with lovely natural light. The Master Bath opens up to a small balcony, allowing for great air flow and flooding light.
One of the most unique parts of the showcase was the stairway hall sculpture by Martin Bialas – sculptural letters arranged in a dynamic formation beginning at the base of the wall and continuing all the way to the top. We imaged it as a fun way to bring sophisticated, yet friendly artwork into a family home.
The Showcase House is open through this weekend, so if you haven’t had a chance to go, I highly recommend a visit. Go and be inspired!
