A Sumptuous Dining Room in San Francisco


We've been away for almost two weeks, celebrating weddings and graduations with family back east and I'll post more on that visit later! For now, an incredibly beautiful, sumptuous room in the hills of San Francisco overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge.

When I visited the San Francisco Decorator Showcase the stunning showstopper dining room in the venerable mansion was the brilliant work of Suzanne Tucker, acclaimed as one of the top 100 designers in the world by Architectural Digest. She created a most inviting room with a gorgeous tablescape set for a festive celebration. My photographs do not do this room justice!


the table is set using natural elements combined with elegant
china and glassware: the huge rock crystal forms the base of the centerpiece,
the use of succulents (so modern!) in textured silver vases, of sea urchins and
spiny flowers in coral, and those gorgeous amethyst hurricanes



things I love about this room:

1. the warm color scheme of yellow and brown with accents in complementary colors amethyst and coral

2. the brilliant use of detailing on those gorgeous chairs to give them an "outline" against the pale carpet and white tablecloth

3. the natural elements she brought into the elegant mix: sea coral, the huge rock crystal, the organic form of the lamp

4 .the mix of traditional furnishings with modern twist in the chairs, the art, and the collections displayed in the case


the very welcoming bar is a study in
balance: the large modern canvas offsets the
warm traditional wood table and floor; the spiky lamp
is a counterpoint to the smooth silver and crystal


martini, anyone?
