“In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it.” ~ Michelangelo Buonarroti

“Suzanne is the epitome of Old World, but she brings it all into the present day.” ~ Duane Hampton

L.A. based interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein is by heart an east coast girl. Raised in New Orleans and educated at Tulane University as a literature major, she has stayed true to her east coast roots. Instead of allowing L.A. to transform her taste, she became a tastemaker. In 1988 she opened Hollyhock, a shop filled with strong new pieces and antiques used in different ways. Her sophisicated style quickly caught the attention of the west coast elite, and her career as a designer, author, and party planner extraordinaire was born. Today’s post features my favorite interiors from Suzanne Rheinstein, echoing her new book titled, At Home: A Style for Today with Things from the Past. Please enjoy these elegant and timeless interiors!

“My husband grew up in a very beautiful house in New York, and we inherited some wonderful things from his family…I’ve always wanted to make sure there was room for them in my life. I’m counterprogramming: L.A. is wall to wall with contemporary design, and that just doesn’t do it for me. I prefer to live with my fine things, to use them and enjoy them. There’s no point in saving up for a special occasion. It’s more important-and more fun-to make your life attractive every single day.” ~ Suzanne Rheinstien from an interview with W Magazine

Last Sunday I started a new tradition! My Sunday posts now feature timeless interiors I have lovingly filed away, oldies but goodies I have been longing to share with you!

For today’s post I chose the ultra chic Manhattan home of Kaki Daniels designed by Suzanne Rheinstein. The two bedroom apartment, just off Park Avenue, has graceful proportions, neoclassical moldings, and elegant rooms flooded with natural light. I’m in love with the warm earthy palette, luscious fabrics, and exquisite furnishings! Enjoy!

above and below, Table lamps from the Paris flea market flank the mantelpiece in the living room; the Boone sofas, upholstered in Rogers & Goffigon’s Puissance fabric, are by Hollyhock, the pillows are of a Claremont silk damask, and the low table is from Todd Alexander Romano.

below, An 18th century tapestry maquette forms a backdrop in the morning room; the Robin leather-upholstered  armchairs are by Hollyhock, the French 1930s table is from And George, and the curtains are of Snowflake Stripe cotton by Rose Tarlow-Melrose House
