SF Decorator Showcase…The Ideas!

This was my first time attending the
 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, 
benefitting San Francisco University High School.
Some take away ideas…
Shimmer and glossy surfaces
Gold leaf and aged brass
Lots of ceiling treatments
Cocktail bars tucked away everywhere

Let's see what you notice...

In the entry hall, the carpet is made of cowhide flecked with gold.

This home with a view of the 
Bay is currently listed for $17.5 million.

I wish you could see how cool the art above the mantel is…
colorful butterflies in flight with a mirrored background.
The silk curtains mimic some of the shades of the wings.

And this table setting is opulent and down to earth at the same time.

Many details like this exquisitely hand painted wallpaper existed.

I may be trying to copy this :)

I loved this room so much, I went back and asked the designer, 
Cecilia Sagrera-Hill, if I could take her picture.  
She and the room are prettier in person.  I hope we get to see professional shots of this.

The powder room has an alcove…and a mini bar set-up.

Heading upstairs...
There is the library with Bay views.

It looks cool, but I couldn't live with the books backwards.
Another cocktail bar ...

The Master bedroom is high drama with the carved bed
and oversized paintings based on blue and white Portuguese tile.

I like the master bathroom…but for a house this grand, 
the size of it didn't make me feel too bad about our own.
Awesome sink…
and toilet paper storage...

This is funny…cat portrait over a gold fish bowl.
There is a chaise in the bathroom that has this view...
it was a foggy then.
