This year’s 2014 SF decorators showcase features seasoned designers such as Jonathan Rachman, Heather Hilliard, and Geoffrey De Sousa as well as newcomers Regan Baker and Sunny K. Merry. The designs were visionary, eclectic, classic, and elegant from the rich black and white traditional kitchen from Steven Miller to the bright shades of blue with hues of green in a young girl’s room from Artistic Designs for Living.
When I asked other people what their favorite designs were, the traditional black and white kitchen and butler’s pantry from Steven Miller Design Studio was the clear winner. The centerpiece of the design; a custom quartz crystal encrusted ceiling cove just left everyone speechless along with the rich black, enameled cabinetry with accents of Peruvian walnut, white stone counters, and geometric glass tiles.
I had several favorites including Dad’s Honey hole by SKM Interior Design which is a nod to a man’s private bar where he can enjoy cocktails. It includes a fun and unique hanging puffer fish pendant as well as a whimsical wallpaper of pin-up girls and an Art Deco era mirror. I also really enjoyed the Soaking Lounge by Lisa Bakamis Interior Design which is a young teenage girl’s dream retreat where she can relax in her boutique, feminine, lounge with a beautiful butterfly wallpaper and hanging rope light pendants.
However, my ultimate favorite was the final showcase setting where you will emerge into a series of garden spaces themed by reflection. An abstract sculpture in varying heights appear before you that reflect light and shadow designed by Kate Webster. It is very soothing and relaxing, especially when you can sit on a bench in front of the sculpture after a day of seeing such beautiful designs and reflect and meditate.
Below are some amazing designs from the SF decorators showcase which raises money for the financial aid program at SF University High School. Enjoy!
