One thing that I admire about Suzanne Rheinstein's elegant and classical style is that it works well in both town and country. Suzanne can decorate both a Park Avenue apartment as well as a Virginia horse farm with equal aplomb! I'm especially excited about her recently completed project that is featured in House Beautiful's May issue, the theme of which is "Designer Secrets".
Suzanne decorated this Upper East Side apartment for a young married couple that hails from the South. In fact, while reading the article, I realized that the wife used to be my across the hall neighbor in Atlanta many years ago. As you can see, the interiors are gracious and proper, and yet they're comfortable looking too. To me, the apartment looks like a big old Southern home housed within an Upper East Side apartment building.
I'm including a few images here, but be sure to check out the May issue to get the full effect. And as the issue's cover promises, there are plenty of Suzanne's designer secrets in the article as well. (In fact, some of her sage advice can be seen in the photo above.)
