I am really sad to have missed this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase, especially because Palmer Weiss decorated one of the bedrooms. Her work is so fresh and chic. I would have loved to have seen it this year, but alas, we don’t live anywhere near San Francisco, and being able to attend last year’s showcase was just a lucky coincidence. Still, I wish that we had showcases of the same caliber of those in San Francisco or New York here in Houston. We certainly have some fantastic local talent and I can’t think of why designers from other cities wouldn’t want to come here. Unfortunately, most of the showcases in Houston tend to be in the faux-Tuscan, model home category, so thanks, but no thanks.
I’ll stop myself before I really go on a tangent. Palmer Weiss is an unbelievably talented San Francisco-based interior designer with Southern roots, which are definitely evident in her work. She has been featured in numerous publications, including Domino and Traditional Home. Weiss’ work is ideal for the way people live today. Not only does it look beautiful and chic, it also feels inviting and comfortable. Her use of color and pattern adds a sense of warmth to every space. You won’t find a single sterile-looking space in her portfolio.
I believe this beautiful nook is part of a sitting area in a master bedroom, but I think the chair and drapes would be gorgeous in a nursery. The colors work for both genders, and again, it just looks so darn cheerful. How great are these built-ins?
This is a more traditional take on an entry way, but again, the skirted table feels fresh here. I think it is all about the clean lines. I also like that it is paired with a traditional antique, gilded mirror. How about the zebra runner on the stairs?
This skirted table, in David Hicks’ classic La Fiorentina pattern is a fabulous option for a desk. Think of all of the things you could store underneath, especially if you have limited space! The chair is beautiful and the lamp provides a hint of color.
P.S. If you were able to attend this year’s Decorator Showcase in San Francisco, or if you find pictures, please share!
