Elle Decor Showhouse
When it comes to interiors and architecture, San Francisco loves a good show. Off the top of my head I can think of three major annual home tours or showcase houses, and that's not counting the myriad of smaller ones that pop up each spring and fall. But take it from a women who goes to (nearly) all of them, the Elle Decor Showhouse is not-to-be-missed (purchase tickets here for its last showing this weekend). There are at least eight reasons why.
No. 1: This is going to sound ridiculous to say about a five-bedroom, six-bathroom home, but it's accessible. Most showcase-style homes seem to be things that you'd have to invent the next iPad to afford. Now don't get me wrong, this is a very high-end home. However, the spaces are approachable. Maybe you'd just have to work at Facebook, Google, Apple or a shelter magazine (dreams, people!) to swing this 1911 Saint Francis Wood manse.
