About Wattles Mansion:
For the first time the City of Los Angeles will allow a Designer Showcase to be presented in one of the historic homes owned by the city. Wattles Mansion, a 1908 Mission Revival built by the firm of Myron Hunt and Elmer Grey (Rose Bowl, Huntington Library & Ambassador Hotel). The house has been recognized as “the only remaining intact example of the once plentiful Hollywood estates from the period preceding the film industry”. Gurdon Wattles, originally from Omaha Nebraska, was responsible for bankrolling much of early Hollywood and the movie studios.
About the showcase:
In the spring of 2016 (March 25th-April 17th), REITZHAUS will team with acclaimed interior designers for this first of its kind event. The theme for the showcase, ‘Hollywood, The First 100 Years’. Designers will use past movies or Hollywood stars as an inspiration for the rooms they will design.
Interior designers influence style and the Hollywood years have done the same. This creative process will be a unique endeavor.
Modern Luxury will be the media partner and publish the showcase.
