The 42nd annual San Francisco Decorator Showcase is a little bit of history repeating, given that this year’s house, a historic mansion known as “Le Petit Trianon,” was also the property that hosted the fifth iteration of the design event in in 1982. On the National Register of Historic Places, the home was built in 1904 for Marcus and Cora Koshland, a wealthy couple who modeled the residence after the actual Le Petit Trianon at Versailles. At more than 18,000 square feet, the stately Presidio Heights home features 33 redesigned spaces, including nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two kitchens, a spacious front rotunda, a grand marble staircase, a three-story atrium, and two lower levels complete with several large entertaining spaces.
Architectural Digest is an American monthly magazine founded in 1920. Its principal subject is interior design, rather than architecture more generally. The magazine is published by Condé Nast, which also publishes international editions of Architectural Digest in China, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Mexico, and Latin America.
