Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Celebrated interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein focuses on the use of rooms—from entries to outdoor spaces—that reflect her relaxed, elegant style, in which beauty and comfort are paramount. Suzanne Rheinstein is a master at translating traditional style into something fresh and elegant. In Rooms for Living, she shows how to achieve a calm and livable environment in casual or more formal settings. Rheinstein presents welcoming rooms to share with others, as well as private, cozy spaces for relaxing or sleeping.  
Included are examples of refashioned spaces, such as a neglected living room that has been repurposed for reading and writing, and a kitchen that has been expanded to accommodate informal meals. Rheinstein also offers innovative ideas on how to make a statement with an entryway by adding vibrant color, dress a bed for ultimate comfort and romance with luxurious pillows, display books in an understated way, and create a unique party atmosphere. No small detail is overlooked. Beautifully photographed, this inspiring book is a must-have for design-savvy individuals.
