This house was built in 1872 by a prolific builder named Edward Mayberry. It's got the standard Victorian details – Italianate style, colonnettes and quoins at the sides and corners of the windows, segmented arch windows. Its design is a bit simpler than those built and decorated later, when those ornaments were more readily available in San Francisco.
The fully-automated, high-tech San Francisco restaurant Eatsa is a modern spin on the automat. The restaurant features iPads on which customers order meat-free meals which are then delivered to small glass compartments so that customers can order, receive their meal and eat without interfacing with a single human being.
Current owners Adam D. Smith and wife Mata have a pact with the Mayberry House: The only artwork is theirs or Michael Brennan's, a muralist who embellished the walls and ceilings. Their astonishing flair for decorating and joint artistic eye have created a haven rich with detail, yet never cluttered.
Villa de Martini, a 6,119-square-foot Italianate home located on Telegraph Hill, plays host to the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase featuring the Bay Area's top interior designers. The home features four floors and unobstructed views of Alcatraz, Treasure Island, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marina District.
During the day, the neutral color palette in the Library at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 allows the lush greenery outside to take center stage. Designer Geoffrey De Sousa created the space as a lighter, fresher take on the typical dark paneled library.
Set on a hillside overlooking the San Francisco Bay and Silicon Valley, this once mundane site was full of potential when the Kikuchi + Kankel Design Group arrived. After remodeling the pool area and adding rows of flowers, the homeowner and landscape architects then completed the space with an ultra-chic sculpture.
The Cloud Terrace at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase offers a nearly 180-degree view of San Francisco's top sights, including San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Landscape architect Chih-Wei G.V. Chang added purple walls lined by pollinator friendly flowers to invite hummingbirds and bees to share in the otherwise private view.
