The San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show is thrilled to be once again partnering with de Gournay on the four designer vignettes that will grace the show's entry. Benefiting this year's Flower Power theme, each vignette will focus on one of the four seasons. San Francisco designer Kendall Wilkinson will create the Fall vignette, entitled Secret Garden. Her design for de Gournay was inspired by a Valentino dress with autumn-colored flowers, so they are hand painting flowers onto an iridescent silk wallpaper. Kendall will also incorporate wonderfully crusty stone garden elements from Finnegan Gallery in Chicago. We can't wait to see the result!
Though she is a San Francisco native, Kendall’s passion for interior design started while studying abroad in Paris after leaving the movie industry. In Paris, Kendall became enamored by French architecture and antiques, and began traveling abroad extensively. With a respect for tradition and a passion for the modern, Kendall’s true expertise lies in her ability to artfully mix authenticity and contemporary design to match her clients’ tastes. She has helped several clients create “Healthy Homes” in addition to focusing on sustainability and green-living. Her clients include industry leaders in technology, finance, retail and hospitality.
Kendall is regularly featured in leading design and lifestyle publications and has been covered in multiple design blogs. Kendall has also appeared on local and nationally syndicated television programs including HGTV’s Homes Across America, High Tech Home, and Sensible Chic. In the spring of 2016, Kendall launched her first collection with Fabricut, featuring indoor/outdoor fabrics in a sophisticated mix of neutrals, bold colors and innovative patterns.
