I'm always looking for inspiration, in architecture, design and decorating to showcase our wonderful lifestyle in the San Francisco Bay area through ideas curated from iPhone photos and to inspire content for blogs.
A highlight of the year is attending the annual, 2017 San Francisco Decorator Showcase at 2698 Pacific Ave., San Francisco, CA 94115! Benefitting the financial aid program of San Francisco University High School. The Mack House is a grand scale Classic Revival Victorian built in 1904, perched on a Pacific Heights corner taking-in magnificent views of the Bay, Alcatraz and beyond.
I arrived at 4:30PM, my favorite light of the day and snapped a few pics of favorite features and highlights of the self-tour, replete with white wine and goldfish crackers, amid the enthusiastic crowd of designers, visitors and hosts. My fabulous San Francisco and Wine Country Realtor BFF, Cynthia Palmer and I leisurely strolled through rooms that are re-imagined to include the most sophisticated and scrumptious design that only truly talented designers such as the ones featured in this home, could possibly dream of and implement. Oh the envy and appreciation!
Open through Memorial Day, May 29th, take a few hours on the way to dine to drop in and delight yourself, meet the designers and their associates and perhaps take a few ideas home to implement in your own home. Tickets. Many Thanks to the talented designers and generous hosts who inspire us to live larger, more chicly and with abandon. You ROCK!!!! More Info and Website.
Afterwards, grab a delicious bite to eat at Thai Spice in Nob Hill! For more info about the designers, pick-up your exclusive, sought-after showcase magazine at the event!
