But once Gilbert emailed her photographs of the 1930 residence, she encouraged him to submit an offer though she had never set foot inside. The couple (who have two sons—David, a Los Angeles–based artist, and Marc, an editorial producer for CNBC in New York) moved in on Memorial Day, 2012.

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.

As San Francisco’s leading event guru, Gatti merges art, architecture, interiors, floral design and graphics into stellar happenings. Over the past three decades, he has produced events ranging from Oscar parties and opera galas to VIP weddings and chic soirées for the likes of the Gettys, Trainas, and, recently, someone named Kanye.
