"A visual feast 4 trad lovers. Decorating & entertaining lessons in gorgeous photos" ~House Beautiful
"Gorgeous homes are the business of Rheinstein, a designer who owns the Los Angeles style emporium Hollyhock. The jewel of this book is the chapter on her stunning redo of a 300-acre Virginia farm. NOT JUST the library, dressing table, pantry and even the laundry room are worth poring over, BUT you can pore over the library, dressing table, pantry and even the laundry room." ~The Washington Post
"Passion for the past led Rheinstein to open her own antiques shop. Now one-of-a-kind pieces and six homes that feature them (including two of her own) are included in this tome, out in November." ~Traditional Home
"Over the 20-plus years she's been designing interiors. Suzanne Rheinstein has adorned dwellings from a Newport Bay colonial, to a Sun Valley mountain retreat, to a Virginia horse-country estate.

If you like these elements, you'll love this book. The designer makes the case that if you buy and keep fewer and better one-of-a-kind pieces, you can decorate around them. You may change colors and fabrics etc. throughout the years, but the essential beauty and quality is always there. It's like these choice pieces are the characters in the play who always have starring roles in your homes and something to say--the scenery revolves around them. The beautiful and interesting rooms featured in this book support this philosophy.
The projects showcased in this book are diverse. In addition to the New York apartment, there is a Georgian Revival house, a horse country estate in Virginia, a Sun Valley Idaho mountain home, a seaside home in Newport Bay and a Florida cottage. Rheinstein takes you leisurely through each home and explains the design choices in her own words so it's a fun tour. She is very knowledgeable about design history, and there's many references to styles and well-known designers. She mixes Gustavian with Edwardian with Regency with ease and has an educated eye. Rheinstein owns a shop called Hollyhock in California and designs fabric for Lee Joffa. Some of her fabrics are used in the rooms in this book.Read more ›
