The expressive exterior of the 2018 San Francisco Decorator Showcase
The 2018 San Francisco Decorator Showcase landed in the Marina District not with a whisper but a clear shout. The eye-catching bullseye mural on the exterior of this 1930s Spanish Revival home practically beckons passerby to come explore the wonders that must be waiting inside. This year, dozens of top West Coast designers were tasked with transforming a blank canvas into a home that displays the freshest trends and the most innovative design techniques. This standout event of the season shows the beauty of architecture and design all in the name of raising funds for children’s education.
Mead Quin designed the terrace to be a warm and inviting place to connect with nature.
A total of twenty-three designers were assigned an entire room and given carte blanche to spread their creative wings. While each designer brings a unique perspective and aesthetic to their respective spaces, it’s clear that being across the street from the iconic Marina had a large influence on the décor and landscaping of the home overall. From shades of blue colors to calming natural elements like greenery or oceanic overtones, discover the trends that emerged from this year’s stunning exhibit.
