There couldn’t possibly be a better example of timeless elegance and glamour than what Michael Taylor had done for Dede Wilsey’s San Francisco mansion in the 1980s (and still just as beautiful today). If you look closely through the photos, you may notice Dede’s formidable collection of art which includes Picasso, Cassat, Degas, Monet, Renoir, Magritte and Rodin. Dede, a renowned patron of the arts, and Taylor’s genius taste for pink and green, endless florals amongst ruffles and fine French antiques, makes it impossible to not fall in love with every corner, every wall of this mansion.

All of Dede’s homes feature her favorite color scheme: pink, yellow and green.

Her decidedly old world taste was shaped by her father.

He loved antiques shows and auctions. We went to Europe in the summer when I was little, spending weekends at the flea market in Paris and at museums – not on the tennis court.” – Dede Wisley
