This year, the hotly anticipated San Francisco Decorator Showcase—the biggest design event in the city, to be sure—celebrated its 37th anniversary with rooms festooned by 26 design studios. Located in a 9,000-square-foot mansion built in 1907, the showhouse offers a Kate Moss-inspired entry hall by Jonathan Rachman, a delicate, flowery dining room designed by the San Fran firm SagreraBrazil, and a Portugal-themed master bedroom by Antonio Martins. What really sets 2014's display apart, though, is the inclusion of House Beautiful's dramatic Kitchen of the Year.
The work of the Calif.-based interior designer Steven Miller and filled to the brim with products from some of House Beautiful's major advertisers, the sleek space, which will be featured in the magazine's October issue, is a study in contrasts, with black KraftMaid cabinetry, a glossy, herringbone-patterned backsplash by Ann Sacks, and white floors. The room extends into an equally monochromatic lounge space, all centered around a modern chain-mail art installation pegged by Curbed SF as the best part of the whole shebang.
