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

“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.”

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“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!”

“High quality work from a pleasant and qualified staff. Thank you!”

— Paul Markovich

“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”

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

— Michelle & Rivers Gee

“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.”

— Vince Scola

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”
