For the past 35 years, the annual San Francisco Decorator Showcase has benefited San Francisco University High School‘s financial aid program, raising over $12 million and benefiting hundreds of students. On April 23, 2013, generous sponsors including school parents, faculty and trustees gathered at Herbst Manor, 2800 Pacific Avenue in San Francisco, for a preview of rooms transformed by 24 of the Bay Area’s top design firms for the 36th annual event.
San Francisco Decorator Showcase is open to the public daily through May 27th. Located in Pacific Heights on Divisadero and Pacific, Herbst Manor is an 8,000+ square foot Georgian-style mansion.
