So, should you pay the $30 fee to tour this year's Decorators' Showcase? The Chron covered it on Saturday but their coverage didn't answer this question for us. We'll just have to go ourselves and let you know what we think. In the meantime, here are the highlights from the weekend's H&G section: A CELEBRATION OF DESIGN: Each H&G writer (including our own Anh Minh Le) offers their take on a few Decorators' Showcase rooms. While many sound interesting, the only photo that really grabbed us was the one above, of Kendall Wilkinson's vibrantly-colored Master Bedroom.
It was the room that nobody wanted: Susan Fornoff looks at Tish Key's rich renovation of the House's kitchen, which now includes Droog's 85-lamps chandelier. As she says, "there's no client, no convincing and no-holds-barred at the showcase."
AROUND THE HOUSE: The standout among Susan's fairly ho hum picks this week is Olivier LePensec's $19,500 4-person hammock, aka the Cocoon.
APPRECIATION: Dave Weinstein sweetly eulogizes recently departed Bay Area architect Jack Hillmer, whose structures "are the platonic ideal of the modern Bay Area house."
