Los Angeles' famous Wattles Mansion, a mission revival estate built in 1908, will host its second annual Designer Showcase, to be unveiled March 22nd and open to the public March 23rd-April 16th, 2017. Produced by Reitzhaus Productions, a veteran showcase production company led by designer Victoria Reitz, the 2017 theme of Hollywood History: The New Classics is fitting considering Gurdon Wattles, the original homeowner, bankrolled much of early Hollywood.
