An Exclusive First Look Into the Studio of Creative Visionary Stanlee Gatti

Like Vishnu’s dream, there is a realm of San Francisco that emerged from the mind of Stanlee Gatti. In that dimension a hundred thousand peonies grow; light radiates from countless candles; and of course, there is a cosmic DJ. As San Francisco’s leading event guru, Gatti merges art, architecture, interiors, floral design and graphics into stellar happenings.

But once Gilbert emailed her photographs of the 1930 residence, she encouraged him to submit an offer though she had never set foot inside.

Architect Roger Ferris’ Weston Home Reveals a Sense of Whimsy Through a Contemporary Lens

Architect Roger Ferris is uncommonly poetic on the subject of renovation, a topic not known for its inherent lyricism. “It’s almost like adding another chapter to a novel that’s already been written,” Ferris says, speaking both of the process of adaptive renovation generally, and his Weston Tudor-house-turned-hybrid-modernist-residence specifically.

For Stephen Brady, executive vice president of Creative Services for Gap Inc., home truly is a style statement. With a celebrated career in fashion and décor—including leading roles at Ralph Lauren Home and Williams-Sonoma—Brady is known for crafting iconic retail spaces and destination restaurants (including San Francisco’s debonair Spruce).
