I have lived here for twelve years now and have only once missed the San Francisco Decorator Showcase House. It's like your passport behind the gates of those pearly mansions up on the hill. I go for the glimpse of history inside, just as much as the design inspiration. In fact, sometimes the decor is, well...bad. But the homes never disappoint. This year's Showcase House will celebrate its 30th year in grand style by remaking the 1926 10,000 square foot mansion at 2901 Broadway Street. The mansion is being opened to the public for the first time ever. Save the dates: April 28 thru May 28.
