Above is a picture I took yesterday of the Finished Room with Custom Cabinets by Mitchel Berman Cabinetmakers for the 2011 San Francisco Decorators Showcase House www.sfdecoratorsshowcase.org
Penthouse Bedroom, designed by Cathleen Gouveia Design www.gouveiadesign.com
You can see from the picture how beautiful everything looks, the combinations of color, texture and materials all working together to create a beautiful room.
The designer’s inspiration was Otis Redding’s song “Sittin on the Dock of the Bay” and she worked to combine colors and materials and textures to evoke a serene bayside feeling with expansive views to the San Francisco Bay thru the large windows, and the use of Drift Wood colors on our Bleached White Oak Cabinets, with custom Concrete Countertops and Base, the White Oak Floors and Hand Troweled Venetian Plaster Walls, a custom made Bend that is suspended from the ceiling on large Manila Ropes and carefully selected Art and accessories.
Already we have recieved Television coverage of the Showcase House and our work on Chanel 7 News:http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/video?id=8098293&pid=8098292
If you take a look at the earlier pictures on my blog you can see the path of Transformation that this Room has been through as we worked together to create a vision of Beauty and Serenity.
