Suzanne Rheinstein

Courtney was the first to answer at a very ambitious 7:22 a.m. Suzanne Rheinstein's "California City" Federal Revival home in Los Angeles (she disliked the term "English Country") appeared in House and Garden in August of 1989.

Most of you know Rheinstein is a New Orleans native, raised with all the rich Southern tradition that city implies, who moved to Los Angeles when she was married.

These images of the house as it is evolved courtesy of domino.

The lovely image, top, is Rheinstein and her daughter Kate. Gardening was one of Rheinstein's passions as well; she planted honeysuckle under Kate's window so she could grow up with the same fragrances her mother did. Those Southern girls know things. Right, Courtney?
