With a few exceptions, the season of showhouses from East coast to West and around is coming to an end and since none of them were reasonably close to our current residence, I’ve decided to write about last year’s San Francisco showhouse which I actually got to visit in person. Three times!
Every year for the past 37 years, a group of West coast’s finest interior designers take over one of San Francisco’s mansions and work their magic to transform the interiors. Open until Memorial Day, the home then gets toured & enjoyed by other designers and design enthusiasts. The proceedings from every year’s showhouse are donated to a great cause, the San Francisco’s University high school financial aid program that has helped hundreds of students along the years.
So… last year’s SF Decorator Showhouse took place in an Elizabethan mansion in Presidio Heights designed by the famed architect Julia Morgan. The home was built in 1917, has three stories, six bedrooms & eight bathrooms and stunning vistas of the Golden Gate bridge! With so many incredible and over the top designs to choose from, and a finite amount of pictures that can fit into a post, I had trouble narrowing down my preferences to those I absolutely 100% loved. I feel sorry I had to leave out a few rooms!
