We are huge fans of designer Suzanne Rheinstein here at The Glam Pad, and today we’re delighted to review her latest book, A Welcoming Elegance, photographed by Pieter Estersohn and written by Michael Boodro. Over the three decades of her career as a style maker and legendary interior designer, Suzanne Rheinstein’s name has become synonymous with modern elegance and relaxed, timeless simplicity. Her historic Los Angeles home, which reveals her Southern roots, is an all-time favorite!
Rheinstein’s bestselling first book, At Home, showcased homes that embodied her trademark elegant livability. In Rooms for Living, she explored different living spaces and the design philosophies behind them. Now, in A WELCOMING ELEGANCE, Rheinstein shares with readers six new residences, the final projects of her extraordinary career, each featuring the meaningful mix of antiques, furnishings, art, and textiles that make her interiors feel both welcoming and luxurious. But most importantly, beyond beautiful design, each of these homes is a unique reflection of the people who live in them.
