A Style for Today with Things from the Past

Reprinted from anneloveland.com

Windsor Square resident and New Orleans native Suzanne Rheinstein recently published “At Home”.  I received this fabulous coffee table book for Christmas a year ago, and must admit that it continues to be one of my favorite gifts. It is a great read and beautifully photographed.  Each time I pick it up I’m inspired with a fresh perspective on how to use the antiques I’ve acquired along the way.

Suzanne feels “that how you live your life each day is much more important than getting your house together for a special occasion”.  I could not agree more.  I always want my environment to be pleasing and interesting to the eye but NEVER as the expense of comfort.

Suzanne’s entry hall is one of my favorite examples of something “old” applied in a new way. I adore the millwork of this Georgian Revival the way the scarlet grosgrain ribbon trim punctuates the details.  Very clever!

I also love the creative ways she uses fresh cut flowers and greens from her garden around the house.

To learn more about Suzanne, visit her store in West Hollywood near the Pacific Design Center or check out her web site at  Hollyhock . Congratulations on a job well done!  I do miss the old store on Larchmont Boulevard!
