Suzanne Rheinstein, L.A.’s own gifted interior decorator and stylist has published a wonderful book, At Home: A Style for Today with Things from the Past, (Rizzoli).
The book illustrates the work of Suzanne throughout California and the rest of the country. The stunning photographs of her work -- from an L.A. beach house, to a New England country farmhouse, to a New York City pre-war gem -- smartly captures her relaxed and elegant aesthetic that utilizes interesting and eclectic pieces in fresh ways.
This book's eloquent introduction by Rheinstein briefly explains how her inspiration sprouted from her parents’ garden, their late-Victorian home, and her decorator mother. She divulges that her motivation for design is to create comfortable spaces for lively families that are object-driven and focus on the ability of unique, high-quality pieces to finish a room.
When flipping through the pages, you are struck by Rheinstein’s amazing attention to detail. Somehow, she is able to stick to this principle of defining spaces with luxury while always maintaining an air of simplicity.
Suzanne also runs Hollyhock, a design and decorating shop in L.A. that has become an important resource for decorators everywhere. The store is known for its unique antiques and decorative pieces. Furthermore, she has created fabric and rug collections for Lee Jofa.
After looking through the book, there's no question why she has become an passionate and powerful force in design today…her rooms say it all.
