San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2009 - Part IV

Did you have a good time riding up and down the elevator  from my last post about the San Francisco Decorator Showcase? It’s time to continue the tour of the second level. 
The Teenage Daughter’s Bedroom is right behind the elevator. My teenage daughter would kill for this room designed by Palmer Weiss. With a room like this, she may never emerge. She would love the girly but not sugary colors:

She would be crazy for this luxurious canopy:

 … the great fabric choices and the beautiful Parisian color photograph:

 She would love spending hours putting on her make up and blow drying her hair in Nancy Van Natta’s bathroom.

On the other side of the elevator is the guest room. Sorry, I don’t have any photos of this room, but I did photograph the adjoining Guest Bath, designed by Lynn Amon. It is sheer elegance with the fancy carved wooden Chinoiserie mirror and light fixture that looks like a sea urchin but is reminiscent of a Chinese lantern .

Everyone loved the wallpaper and I heard a couple of people talk about how impractical it was to have fabric wallpaper in a bathroom. When I read the information book, I learned that this is not wallpaper but stenciled orchids that were then over-painted for a faux-linen finish. Amazing.

 Now come down the hallway to the Master Bedroom. Cecilie Starin designed a luxurious retreat of elegance. A giant Chinese screen lined the wall behind the four-poster bed:

 An intricate Chinoiserie mirror hangs over a perfectly accessorized tabletop:

The opalescent hemp-sheathed antique-silver wall covering was just the right amount of bling without competing with the beautiful antiques in the room.
Directly next-door is His Sitting Room. Scheiber Design Group did a magnificent job in creating a space for the man of the house. The room has a classic streamlined style without the “hands-off” fussy feeling that the more formal rooms in the house possess.

That’s all for today; next time we visit the penthouse and roof garden.

Loved the girl's bedroom, but not sure about the hot pink... love the "his" sitting room, however. When do we move in?

Ruth said...

The best for me is the girl's bathroom: Those vases! (I want them.) The words in the ceiling border. The beady light fixtures. And is that girl's face neon in the wall hanging?

I'm not in love with the hot pink either, though.

Love the bathroom with the orange ceiling...so unexpected!

WOW!!!!

I chuckled at your comment that your teenage daughter would never emerge from a room like this. They are all the same, aren't they? Adolescents, that is. Many thanks for another fantastic tour with such magnificent photos.

Greetings from London.

OH, I've been waiting for this. I love these kinds of posts. Of all that beauty, you know what I love most? The photographs in the girl's room. Do you know anything about them?

Dear MOWB,
I wouldn't want the hot pink for myself, but for a teenage girl...

If we each pitch in $5 million, it's ours!

Dear Ruth,
I want those vases too! And then I'd like some of your peonies :)

I'm so glad you noticed the border! It was beautiful!

The entire picture is a light box, if I recall correctly.

Dear P&C
You are so observant! I hadn't noticed that before. I was so enamored with the wall treatment.

Dear Elizabeth,
I agree!

Dear Cuban,
Teenage girls appear to be identical, no matter where in the world. Thank you!

Dear Relyn,
I will see what I can find out about them. I was crazy for the photos too. Especially the one with the girl in the white dress at the pastry shop.
