AD100 Designer Mario Buatta’s Timeless Interiors

CAROLANDS IN HILLSBOROUGH, CALIFORNIA Perched above San Francisco Bay, this Beaux Arts château was commissioned by railroad-car heiress Harriet Pullman Carolan in the early 1910s. Architects Ernest Sanson and Willis J. Polk loosely modeled the 65,000-square-foot residence after France’s Vaux-le-Vicomte. In 1998 the current owners tapped Buatta to head renovation. French antiques for a sitting room and carefully restored the plasterwork & parquet floor.
