....DESIGNER DEETS at this year's SF SHOWCASE HOUSE....!

This year's San Francisco Decorator's Showcase was of course held once again in a major home in the Pacific Heights area of San affluent area known for period homes that were built (mostly) around the 1870s with additions and further development after the 1906 earthquake.  A lot of the homes feature rather awkward interiors with narrow stairways and smaller rooms that don't have your typical floor plans, ceilings and straightforward walls...all this adding challenge to the designers that take on a room to showcase their talents and style.

I walked through with my fellow interior designer friend, Rebecca Loewke, after a yummy catch-up lunch session and have the following favorite details from the house to share with you...!

One room getting a lot of press this year is Catherine Kwong's Living Room - with it's rock chic + glamourous details, it isn't hard to see why:

Dornbracht's Tara fittings are one of my favorites....seeing them in a matte black finish in the bathroom designed by Siol Studios was great....not to mention that live wall!

In the "Atelier" designed by Antonio Martins Interior Design there was a place for everything....every inch of the space had tasteful design sense and skill applied to it with my favorite feature being the custom lacquered drawers housing antique tools...

Kelley Flynn of Kelley Flynn Interior Design's Water Closet was a tricky + small space that she managed to give a huge personality to.  The pleated fabric was an amazing feature and the result was a very chic little water closet!

Dogfork always makes the most amazing light fixtures and the one they did for "Soaking Bath" designed by Willem Racke Studio was no exception!

Living Green Design always hits it out of the park with their gardens and live installations.  The live vertical wall of conifers, maples, mosses and fern created the most beautiful blanket of pattern and texture - stunning.
