i’m so excited to present today the first interview in a designer series i’m calling “MDS interviews”. What a joy and honor for me to get the opportunity to ask some of my favorite designers, artists and taste-makers what inspires them, influences them, and find out what they think is chic, stylish and glamorous!
I’m thrilled that the first interview is with Suzanne Rheinstein- let me tell you why! first, in the midst of an ever changing and trendy LA design community, suzanne stands out with her refined, discerning and elegant taste. i’m in awe of her knowledge of art and travel, antiques and gardening- her design work is impeccable, a lesson in pretty- details, details, divine details!
her store hollyhock is an absolute favorite, my go to for many reasons, but mostly for beautiful inspiration and lovely things- special for la! i especially admire her tireless commitment to supporting , showcasing and featuring other talented designers and artists- her book signing parties at hollyhock are absolute musts!
beyond all the obvious reasons, i’m most excited to have suzanne be my first interview because she was one of the first in la to follow, recognize, support and appreciate my blog! she has been so kind, a constant resource, a teacher, a mentor, most importantly, a friend!
one of my favorite things to do in la is have lunch with suzanne- there is always a great travel story, an entertaining tip, an idea for a glorious meal or a new book, a description of one of her favorite gardens, the history of a rare piece of art, insight into a lecture i must attend and there is always great conversation on everything chic, glamorous and stylish!
i can’t think of a better way to help celebrate the blogs first anniversary than with a designer series and i can’t think of a better way to start it than with my dear friend suzanne! “MDS Interviews” Suzanne rheinstein- enjoy!
at home: a style for today with things from the past. more to enjoy- one of my favorite books!
