Please join the ICAA Southern California in welcoming interior designer Suzanne Tucker for a behind-the-scenes exploration of one of her recent projects, an Italian Renaissance–style palazzo in San Francisco.
From concept to completion, from inspiration to reality, it truly took a village to reimagine the property and endow the house and garden with new life and twenty-first-century function. Learn more about the extraordinary journey of a project that was the true embodiment of a successful collaboration between designer, architect, builder, stone masons, artisans, landscape architect, art installers, and many more.
After the presentation, Suzanne will sign copies of her new book “Extraordinary Interiors.”
