Throw together 27 designers, give them an 8,000-square-foot Georgian mansion as a canvas, and let them have at it. It sounds like the premise of a half-baked Bravo TV show, with stylistic discord as the inevitable result. Instead, it's the story behind the 2013 San Francisco Decorator Showcase.
I have no idea how these things work - whether designers consult with one another or have their plans approved by some larger committee. Whatever the case, the individually designed spaces in this Pacific Heights home are both completely distinct and completely cohesive.

No doubt that last photo threw you for a loop. I admit that it doesn't fit in terribly well with the rest of the house, but I just love the idea behind it: The designer conceived of this space as the bedroom of an artistic teenage girl rebelling against a beauty-queen mother. Now doesn't it all make sense?
