At home in Montecito with Suzanne Rheinstein


While acclaimed designer Suzanne Rheinstein the story of the Hancock Park house in Los Angeles is a studio in a layered neoclassical style, her home in Montecito is dedicated to silence. At her idyllic country resort, Suzanne worked with an architectural firm Bories and Shearron to completely turn the house with the date 1971 into its ultimate “house of calm”. Please, along with me and Susanna, mark Suzanne’s behind-the-scenes visit to her remarkable home in Montecito.

With architectural inspiration from warm weather destinations like Mallorca, Suzanne used the gentle colors of tinted plaster inside and out to unify the space and accentuate the outdoor lifestyle of the temperate Montecito.
