Suzanne Rheinstein kitchen in Rooms for Living

Thanks so much for checking out some of our progress
six months into the DIY whole house renovation…
life is never ever boring around here!

If you favor traditionally designed interiors
offering serenity and elegance, chances are
you are familiar with the wondrous work of
S u z a n n e  R h e i n s t e i n. 

The entry above in her Manhattan home is one of my
favorite moments from this masterful designer
with its Gustavian influence, Gracie covered walls,
and soothing palette of neutrals.

Rheinstein’s latest book shares her design philosophies
as reflected in six different beautifully appointed homes:

Suzanne Rheinstein Rooms for Living

Rooms for Living:
A Style for Today with Things from the Past
(Rizzoli, 2015)

It’s a stunning array of interiors,
and I so appreciate the book’s structure.
Rooms are organized together (a chapter
on bedrooms, living rooms, etc.) which
makes it extra user friendly.

Isn’t this the most heavenly flavor of feminine?

A word springing to mind again and again
as I review her designed spaces is
h  a  r  m  o  n  y,
and i wish you many, many verses of just
that…coupled with a melody of peace…
right where you are.

    Her designs are flawless! One of my favorites is her own NYC apartment with the mural. Cheers
