Suzanne Rheinstein

Yesterday I stopped by the Washington Design Center to listen to the fabulous Suzanne Rheinstein speak about her life and career in interior design. She was witty, interesting and naturally elegant, just like her interiors. She is accomplished in many ways with her design career, home shop in L.A. {Holly Hock}, fabric line for Lee Jofa and more recently her book, At Home: A Style from Today with Things from the Past. I was lucky enough to meet her and have her sign my book, where she wrote "Always love being at home." I was completely charmed.

Take a look at her magnificent work.


In the same Colonial-Revival home, this little girl's room showcases pieces of furniture that can stay with her through her years.

The floor is such a subtle and unique detail - a pattern that also makes an appearance on the inside binding of her book.

The leading edge on the window panels is totally gorgeous - custom embroidered.

Perfect for entertaining year-round, this two-story living room is welcoming and comfortable yet has unique objects spread throughout that give the room personality.

The high ceilings, French chandelier, satin settee and old stripped mantel make this master bedroom a theatrical space.

This is the dining room of Sunsong, a 1940s cottage on the old Floridian seaside.  The creation of this floor was inspired by sea shells in various shades of brown.  It sets a perfect stage for this collection of sepia-decorated creamware.
