Leading interior designer and owner of Hollyhock, Los Angeles's renowned antiques and decorative arts mecca, Suzanne Rheinstein is known for her relaxed, elegant style. Style maker and interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein has a keen appreciation for special luxuries. She is a master at taking an eclectic mix of furnishings from the past and arranging them in a fresh, inspiring way. Elegant simplicity and attention to detail are the hallmarks of her look. A timeless quality pervades every room she designs. Rheinstein feels that how you live your life every day is much more important than getting your house together for a special occasion. Beautifully photographed, this inspiring volume shows examples of her work, ranging from a brick farmhouse in the Virginia countryside and a sophisticated rustic getaway overlooking the Big Wood River in Sun Valley to a year-round shingled residence on the beach in Newport Bay, as well as her own homes—a gracious Georgian Revival in Los Angeles and a New York City prewar pied-à-terre. They exemplify her talent for creating attractive homes that make living and entertaining extremely pleasurable.

French flair and Italian panache combine exquisitely in these rooms that are rich with quality furnishings and well-chosen colors. Beloved author and interior designer Betty Lou Phillips shows how favorite objects gathered from around the globe can be artfully blended in one's home to create a beautiful international setting that is both personal and inviting. Setting one well-appointed space apart from others is a distinctive way of defining style, which invariably communicates the thoughts, needs and feelings of those raising families, welcoming friends and celebrating meaningful occasions in these spaces. That these interiors owe more than a little to French and Italian influences, and sometimes England or Portugal, is noticeable. However, the images also illus-trate that inspiration can readily come from other far-flung cultures, including American shores. One picture offers a wealth of bright ideas.

This eighth book in Betty Lou Phillips' series on European design is filled with 200 color images that dismiss polarized notions about what understated elegance means or doesn't mean as Phillips urges readers likewise to fashion their own unmistakably swank empires, of sorts, whether furnishing a town house, château, palazzo or villa by the sea.
Aware that old-world artistry is not enough for a sizeable and growing number of design aficionados, Phillips caters to today's tastes, revealing that satisfaction comes from creating uptown European glamour-a chic blend of the traditional and edgy with a bit of attitude apt for an era with more choices than ever.

Betty Lou Phillips is the author of the award-winning Villa Décor, plus The French Connection, Secrets of French Design, Unmistakably French, French Influences, French by Design, and Provençal Interiors: French Country Style in America. A professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers, her work has appeared in Southern Accents, Traditional Home, Decorating, Bedroom & Bath, Window & Wall, Paint Décor, and more.

In a country of junk-filled attics, yard sales, and flea markets frequented by millions of Antiques Roadshow viewers hoping to uncover a grungy chest of drawers worth millions, the Keno twins have become the Siskel and Ebert of antiques. Dapper, witty, and in their early forties (with nearly 60 years of combined experience between them), they symbolize the union of amateur enthusiasm and acute professionalism that has made their television program a cultural phenomenon. Now, in this fascinating collection of tales of their personal adventures hunting -- and discovering -- priceless "junk" (including some notable Roadshow success stories), readers will learn how to see the extraordinary in the mundane. "Hidden Treasures" is part history lesson and part treasure map for finding valuable antiques where they would be least expected.
