Zephyr Real Estate Hosts Decorator Showcase Gala
San Francisco, CA – June 18, 2018 – This year marks the 41st Annual Decorator Showcase in San Francisco, and Zephyr Real Estate was on hand once again to host the grand finale party. The event was held at this year’s Showcase home in Marina Green at 465 Marina Boulevard, marking the first-time for the event in that neighborhood. Last year’s Showcase home was located at 2698 Pacific Avenue in Pacific Heights, and in 2016 it was at 298 Chestnut Street in Telegraph Hill.
Built in 1930, this year’s home provided the setting for the top interior and landscape designers in Northern California to brandish their artistry. The home was built by architect George McCrea, and features large picture windows with breath-taking views of the Bay, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Marina Green.
The tri-level home has six bedrooms, four and one-half baths, a sunken living room, formal dining room and a media room. The dream kitchen and expansive family room overlook the tranquil garden, and the central atrium is ideally situated for entertaining. Two home offices and a rosé lounge round out the elegant floor plan. The exterior of the home has an on-house art installation by Artist A. J. Oishi, christened Eyes on Hue, featuring bold concentric circles on the façade.
The Showcase began in 1977 when Nan Rosenblatt, a former San Francisco University High School parent and an accomplished interior designer, along with Philip Fernandez, the first president of the school’s Parents Association, conceived the idea as a fund-raising opportunity for the school’s financial aid program. In its first year, the Showcase netted $26,000. Since then, nearly $15 million in student financial aid has been raised. Continued community support has made quality education available over the past four decades to hundreds of deserving students.
“The Decorator Showcase is clearly the West Coast’s leader in displaying designer expertise and innovation,” remarked Randal Kostick, Zephyr’s President and CEO. “The closing party in such an elaborate setting is a great way to celebrate another successful event.”
