I have had the book, At Home, by Suzanne Rheinstein out for several weeks on our coffee table. I keep going back to many of the dreamy vignettes, and enjoying all the layers of detail.
She is known for her relaxed, elegant style–and is a master of taking an eclectic mix of furnishings & objects from the past and arranging them in a fresh, inspiring way.
Suzanne is also a shop keeper, of the lovely Hollyhock, in Los Angeles.
She has a keen appreciation for special luxuries, and feels that how you live your life each day in your home is much more important than getting your house together for a special occasion. I could not agree more!
The book was photographed by Pieter Estersohn, whose work I have long admired. There is an ethereal quality to many of the images.
But the pages I keep going back to see time and again, are of Rheinstein’s own prewar pied-a-terre in New York. It is just such a beautiful space, both elegant and comfortable.
