I am equally horrified seeing those photos, and am reluctant to go check out @sf_daily_photo to see more. With that said, I wanted to comment that your headline is misleading. SF is not in Silicon Valley and every San Franciscan will enthusiastically remind you of this, since the Valley is home to so many bland cookie-cutter suburban neighborhoods. It's where people move to raise families. I say this as a non-San Franciscan, as I grew up in Silicon Valley (from the 70s-90s). Poor taste is poor taste but let's not drag Silicon Valley into this. I think something like, "The Worst Tech Bro Renovation Trends" is more accurate, as it's likely fueled by tech money.
