tag archives: san francisco

the san francisco design district is changing.  the san francisco design center (sfdc) is consolidating.  jackson square is diversifying.  contemporary design showrooms and clothing retailers are opening.  while, some antiques dealers or art galleries are consolidating, relocating, or closing.  sacramento street is evolving as a leading design destination.

on 1 march 2017, de gournay opened their gorgeous new showroom on sacramento street.  when i lived in london, i loved visiting the de gournay showroom in old church street en route to my favorite fulham road antiques dealers.  so, i am delighted to welcome de gournay to san francisco.

de gournay is best known for their hand-painted chinoiserie wallpaper.  their artisans are artists.  so, de gournay wallpaper could be considered a work of art.

one of my prospective interior design clients hopes to create a ‘more elegant’ home.  so, as part of the initial consultation process, we’re beginning to define what ‘elegant’ means to them.

would you describe de gournay wallpaper as elegant?

san francisco is such a beautiful, and easy place to live.  even so, my husband, bob, and i really miss the museum quality auction previews that we enjoyed while living in london.

so to us, christie’s @ hedge seems like a little bit of london in san francisco.
