Interior Design

At Home: A Style for Today with Things from the Past

Leading interior designer and owner of Hollyhock, Los Angeles’s renowned antiques and decorative arts mecca, Suzanne Rheinstein is known for her relaxed, elegant style. Style maker and interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein has a keen appreciation for special luxuries. She is a master at taking an eclectic mix of furnishings from the past and arranging them in a fresh, inspiring way. Elegant simplicity and attention to detail are the hallmarks of her look. A timeless quality pervades every room she designs. Rheinstein feels that how you live your life every day is much more important than getting your house together for a special occasion. Beautifully photographed, this inspiring volume shows examples of her work, ranging from a brick farmhouse in the Virginia countryside and a sophisticated rustic getaway overlooking the Big Wood River in Sun Valley to a year-round shingled residence on the beach in Newport Bay, as well as her own homes—a gracious Georgian Revival in Los Angeles and a New York City prewar pied-à-terre. They exemplify her talent for creating attractive homes that make living and entertaining extremely pleasurable.

"BUY IT BECAUSE: Rheinstein's belief in quotidian elegance is inspiring. 'A party house,' she writes, 'shouldn't really look that different from your everyday house.'" ~Town & Country

"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. These, and more of her most sumptuous undertakings, are all included in her first book, At Home: A Style for Today with Things from the Past. The volume also features her own beautiful Los Angeles home." ~C Magazine
