In her own words interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein takes you on a personal tour through six of her design projects including two of her own homes: her L.A. home and her New York City pied-a-terre. The living room of her NYC pied-a-terre is featured on the cover of this book. Rheinstein describes what she loves most in design: "fewer but better things, painted surfaces, a mixture of furniture styles, a personal art collection and attention to comfort, colors, textures, details and light."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.
