A perfect rainy day activity would be to grab your girlfriend (best to leave hubbie at home unless he’s one of those precious few who would enjoy perusing a designer home) and pick up two tickets and hurry over to the final weekend of the Elle Decor Showcase, holding court in a prestigious St. Francis Wood Mediterranean home. The 5,000 sq.ft. mansion features the talents of the Bay Area’s top designers, all handpicked by the ELLE DÉCOR staff and they have done a stellar job.

To whet your appetite go to Elle Decor for an incredible 360-degree tour of the mansion, room by room, down to the most minute detail. One of my faves was Erin Martin’s family room. My interest piqued, I read her bio where I learned that “early in her professional career, she spent four years working in orphanages in Morocco, Romania, Israel, and Hungary, drawing inspiration from the unique architecture and style of each place.” Wow- now that’s certainly an eclectic beginning.
