In a city where the mix of past and present — be it architecture, food, art, culture, or design — is always present, the obvious or even subtle influences inform all who live or visit.

New Orleans native interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein used this interplay in her designs and books with her most recent project,“Rooms for Living: A Style for Today with Things from the Past” (Rizzoli), an illustrative example of how to decorate in an elegant, but not boring, fashion.

On Thursday (Feb. 18), Rheinstein was the guest speaker for Longue Vue House and Gardens’ Essence of Design Symposium at the Audubon Tea Room. Guests could move inside and out so as to enjoy the beautiful day that had a few in the audience contemplating taking the lecture and luncheon outside.

Lovely floral arrangements by the event committee and a silent auction were artfully placed inside.

Windsor Square resident and celebrated interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein launched her latest book,“Rooms for Living: A Style for Today with Things from the Past” at an elegant book signing last night at Dennis and Leen on Melrose. The book focuses on rooms that reflect Rheinstein’s approach — giving her clients spaces of beauty and comfort, which serve as a respite from today’s hectic life.  While traditional style is Rheinstein’s hallmark, her rooms are always fresh and elegant.

“Rooms for Living” is exquisitely photographed by Pieter Estersohn, offering readers examples of refashioned spaces such as a neglected living room that now includes space for reading and writing, and a kitchen that has been expanded to accommodate informal meals.  Rheinstein offers innovative ideas on how to make an entryway statement by adding a rich color, dress a bed for ultimate comfort and romance, display books in a thoughtful way, and create a party atmosphere. As is her style, no small detail is overlooked because much can be achieved in transforming a space with attention to such details.

During her esteemed career, interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein has established a signature style based on a simple maxim: “fewer things, but better things.”

“I like to bring together antiques and one-of-a-kind objects to make a very personal house that reflects those living in it,” says Rheinstein, owner of L.A.-based Hollyhock, the renowned home furnishing and accessories shop.

Rheinstein is a best-selling author, whose latest book, “Rooms for Living: A Style for Today With Things From the Past” (Rizzoli, $50), shows readers how to apply Rheinstein’s expert knowledge to each room of the home with the goal of using texture, color and proportion throughout to create harmony.

Question: As a designer, what inspires you?

Answer: I’m a mad gardener and inspired by anything in nature, but I also love cities. My inspiration comes from the glaciers of Patagonia to the most wonderful 17th-century architecture in the English countryside to the soaring contemporary architecture of Los Angeles.

Internationally celebrated designer Suzanne Rheinstein learned about beautiful design early during her upbringing in New Orleans.

“I loved Jackson Square and the building in the French Quarter where I was reared,” she told Interior Design magazine.

She also cited “the shotgun cottages in New Orleans” — along with the Parthenon — as structures that have endured as inspirational resources.

Longue Vue House and Gardens brings Rheinstein home this week, welcoming her back to town with two events: a reception tomorrow night, followed by a lunch and presentation Thursday… Continue reading  >
