On Tuesday, I put on my new, little Fitbit and walked over to the SF Decorator Showcase in Pacific Heights (uphill both ways 🙂 It’s open until May 29th.
While I was in the House Beautiful kitchen, designed by Jon De La Cruz, I overheard the designer say “Yes, photos are fine. This is all about giving you inspiration.” It was so fun reviewing my photos just now to see what really caught my eye. Which I will summarize…and try not to be wordy. It’s all about the photos…
The grey paint enhances the ornate white detail.
Cool open shelving.
Although this part of the room is narrow, notice how the small island is useful and lovely.
Everything is at hand (mise en place — French culinary term for in place)
including plates and pantry staples.
Caesarstone countertop (how about that edge)?
On the island the pulls are brass and iron and then
are reversed for the cabinets near the stove.
Interesting way to install the Fireclay subway tile.
Loved the use and treatment of this space turned into a great banquette. Nice Roman shades, too.
See the grain sack bench and nailhead details and the limestone flooring by Haussmann.
This Thibaut marbled wallpaper added so much to the space in a subtle way.
She mixed an indigo painted wall with dotted wall paper and Windy Chien’s rope lights.
The jewel box, feminine office off the master bedroom by Kari McIntosh was one of my favorites.
I like the ethnic, modern traditional mix! She was in the room when I was there and was free flowing with her sources. I recognized the St. Frank’s wallpaper (produced from an African textile pattern) from their shop on Sacramento Street.

Look how she covered this book in ikat fabric.
This is the view from the top floor…nice day, right?
