Since 1977, the San Francisco Decorator Showcase has corralled Northern California’s most talented and inspiring interior and landscape designers together under one roof, so to speak, in support of San Francisco University High School’s financial aid program. For the first time in its 41-year history, the showcase takes up residence in the Marina District, with unobstructed views of the San Francisco Bay—from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz and beyond. Located on Marina Boulevard, directly across from the Marina Green, the hosting home was designed by architect George McCrea. Completed in 1930, the Marina-style house’s main elements capture much of the Spanish Revival architecture that was popular in the early part of the 20th century.
While four large picture windows offer incredible views outward, the interior is just as spectacular, with 26 well-appointed rooms and spaces—arguably making the site the most anticipated design event on the West Coast. Scroll down for a first look at some of the most inspired design in the Golden State. After a tony sold-out opening-night party, the showcase opens to the public, for one month, beginning Saturday, April 28. Tickets are available at decoratorshowcase.org.
