Millennium Towers, San Francisco

My gorgeous friend Willow flies in from NYC on Saturday. I am so excited to see her and I also want her to see the latest showcase house to take to the sky: "Icons of Design" at our very own Millennium Towers here in San Frncisco. Twenty-nine designers took over the 52nd floor of the recently completed luxury condo project and created amazing rooms that more than stand up to the breathtaking views. Ken Paige, owner of Paige Glass, pulled together this showcase in only a month, reaching out to local designers and asking them each to pick one room from each of the four units.

Ann Getty and Associates added accents of Herm├Ęs orange to complement the modern art:

Scheiber Design Group designed the living room in unit 52A. Graphic patterns in grays and golds perfectly complemented the view of the sun dipping below the city skyline:

Vernon Applegate was perfectly relaxed inside Applegate Tran’s master bedroom in 52D:

A simple dining nook in the living room of 52D was designed by Charles de Lisle Workshop and comes with a serving of Bay views:

Designer Michael Merill and his team were busy setting up their dining room in 52C for a photo shoot. Wine was poured and the plates were set with elegant oyster shells filled with pearls:

Nancy Van Natta Associates created a whimsical, woodland-inspired dining room in 52B complete with a chandelier of silver-leafed twigs and rock crystals:

Reba Jones’ library in 52A was still in the works, but we loved the details we saw, such as Lucite shelving topped with eclectic ephemera. But the showstopper was a closet that she transformed into a bar with black-lacquered walls, oversize mirrors and a chemists’ array of beakers and test tubes:

Butler Armsden architects used plenty of Plexigas to create a hi-tech mediaroom:

David Kensington brought interest to a small den, using bold artwork and glittering gold-leaf:

Martha Angus' girl's room shows how the high-rise life would look to afabulous fourteen-year-old:

In this entryway, Shelby de Quesada used historic references to introduce abit of tradition to the brand-new building:
The showcase, which benefits a different local charity each weekend, is open to the public (weekends only) until November 22. Tickets $25
