Is This The Most Over-The-Top Home Makeover Ever?

We’re always eager to see the jaw-dropping transformations when the annual S.F. Decorator Showcase hits town. The organization culls the West Coast’s top interior designers to redo a selected room from start to finish, and the results are the stuff interior design porn is made of.

This year, the selected design firms worked their magic on a Pacific Heights mansion. To show you just how dramatic some of the changes were, we asked the S.F. Decorator Showcase to supply us with before photos of the pared-down, pre-designed space to contrast with the after shots. If you’re in the area, be sure to swing by the house in person before it closes on May 25. In the meantime, prepare to be amazed by some of the most impressive interior makeovers we've ever seen!

2015 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, 3630 Jackson Street (near Spruce Street); 415-447-5830.

The Laundry Room: After
Evars + Anderson completely reinvigorated the room, upgrading the appliances and covering the walls in a butterfly-printed wallpaper. Additional shelving, updated countertops, and new flooring make a world of difference.

The Foyer: Before
This foyer had a ton of potential, but the deep-cherry wood felt seriously outdated.

The Foyer: After
Candace Barnes completely redid the entryway, lightening up the wood with white paint and creating an inviting hangout area in front of the stairs. The abstract art piece and an eye-catching chandelier really elevate the space to a different level.

The Dining Room: After
Inspired by both street art and old-school glamour, Cecilie Starin added a towering chandelier, touches of gold, and an elegant dining set for a dramatic finish. But, our favorite part of all? The incredible striped ceiling and Ian Ross mural.

The Powder Room: After
Julie Rootes transformed the room into an ornate oasis. The designer was inspired by natural elements, and added in accents like 24-karat gold and onyx mosaic glass tile. The vivid painting and marble vanity tie it all together.

The Bathroom: After
But, Nest Design really took it to the next level. The revamped space features daring lip-print wallpaper, new marble chevron floors, and a gorgeous cast-iron tub with a backsplash of gold.
