After a long cold winter, spring has arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area—amidst the still continuing raindrops that is. That must mean it is time for that most glamorous of West Coast interior design events, the San Francisco Decorator Showcase! The annual event is a benefit for San Francisco University High School and pulls in an impressive list of the top interior and landscape designers from the Bay Area and beyond to transform a residence in the city into a spectacular showhouse—oh, and they do it all in about one months’ time. The showhouse is then open throughout the month of May for visitors to experience, as many thousands do! Year after year, the SF Decorator Showcase delivers a feast for the senses that is not to be missed.

So when MB Jessee got a call from Siol Studio asking if we’d like to participate in the 2010 SF Decorator Showcase this year with them, we were thrilled! Siol was chosen to do a young child’s playroom. It was a challenge the Siol design team, Jessica Weigley and Kevin Hackett, eagerly embraced. Christening the space “Sacred Play – Childhood Reconsidered” Siol centered this unique interior and exterior space around such weighty themes as sustainability, community, connection to self & nature, and exploration. How on earth did these heady ideas translate into a kid’s room? The exterior space featured a biodynamic garden & a working wind turbine and the interior had a disguised bookcase that revealed a secret room behind it, and that’s just for starters!

Naturally, Siol wanted to use environmentally friendly painting products for this space. MB Jessee, green-certified through Build It Green, is extremely well versed in the use of a variety of low and zero VOC paint products and eco-conscious painting & cleanup procedures. MB Jessee was excited to be able to bring their years of green painting and product experience to bear on this exciting project.

The final result? A whimsical and inviting space for a child to grow and thrive. There is still time to see the 2010 San Francisco Decorator Showcase house, it is open through Memorial Day.

Customer Reviews

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walkthrough experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3-year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch-up items that will show up after the job is done.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“The painters at MB Jesse are top notch! Cesar's team was super friendly and helpful. They were very polite and accommodating. Their expertise in everything painting related was evident in their attention to detail and efficiency painting tricky spaces. The apartment looks brand new!”

— Adam Swisher

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“Dear Matt,You must be so proud of your men! They were fantastic to have around. Polite, courteous and hardworking. I am so pleased with the outcome of our home--in fact, I couldn't be any more pleased than I am!”

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”
