KC Pro Painting worked with designer Jon de la Cruz of de la Cruz Interior Design for the 45th San Francisco Decorator Showcase. The Showcase is a prominent annual event in the Bay Area that highlights exceptional interior design and home décor, and this is the last week that the house is open to the public.

The house, situated at the top of Pacific Heights, is open to the public until May 27, 2024. The KC painting team worked with Jon on “The Observatory”, which has sensational views of San Francisco! Our team also took care of all the painting in hallways, corridors and the grand staircase throughout the 5 story property.

Many thanks to Sherwin-Williams who donated the paints we used for this worthwhile project. Since 1977, the Decorator Showcase has raised over $18 million to benefit the San Francisco University High School financial aid program. UHS is committed to building a community that reflects and embraces the great diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area. We are thrilled to be involved in the 45th season of the Decorator Showcase, and the property located on Billionaire’s row, is a must-see. Here are some key details about the event:

History and Purpose

Established in 1977, the Showcase is a highly anticipated design event that features the work of top interior designers and landscape architects. Its primary purpose is to raise funds for the San Francisco University High School’s financial aid program.


Each year, a different luxury home in San Francisco is chosen to be transformed by participating designers. These homes are often historic, architecturally significant, and located in prestigious neighborhoods.

Designers and Themes

Renowned designers are invited to redesign individual rooms or spaces within the home, each showcasing their unique style and creativity. The themes and designs vary widely each year, reflecting current trends and the personal flair of the designers. Distinguished interior designer Jon de la Cruz of DLC-ID is proud to debut “The Observatory” at the 2024 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. A room offering breathtaking panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay, de la Cruz’s space flexes as a family gathering area– a media room, game room, breakfast nook, and by night, a cozy entertaining space for enjoying aperitifs.

Public Tours

After the redesign is completed, the home is opened to the public for tours, typically during the spring. This provides an opportunity for visitors to gain inspiration and see high-end, cutting-edge interior design up close.

Charitable Impact

The event has raised millions of dollars for the San Francisco University High School over the years, significantly contributing to the school’s ability to offer financial aid and scholarships to students.

Community and Cultural Significance

The Showcase is not just a design exhibition but also a cultural event that engages the local community, design enthusiasts, and professionals. During its month-long, the house features additional programming such as lectures, special events, and designer meet-and-greet sessions.

The San Francisco Decorator Showcase is a celebrated event that combines philanthropy with the arts, making a significant impact on both the local community and the broader design world. The 45th San Francisco Decorator Showcase is located at 2898 Broadway on Billionaire’s Row in Pacific Heights and is open until May 27. The Decorator Showcase benefits the San Francisco University High School Financial Aid Program. For tickets, please visit this link
