While designer Susan Reinstein The storied Hancock Park house in Los Angeles A study in a layered neoclassical style, her Montecito home is all about tranquility. In her idyllic country retreat, Susan has worked with an architectural firm Boris and Sheron To completely transform what was an old 1971 house into the ultimate ‘House of Tranquility’. Please reflect with me and Susanna for a behind-the-scenes visit with Susan at her wonderful home in Montecito.
Taking architectural inspiration from warm-weather destinations like Mallorca, Suzanne used soft hues of colorful stucco inside and out to unify the space and emphasize the indoor-outdoor lifestyle of a mild Montecito.
The architects and Susan were able to reorient the original home, without altering the original footprint, by adding new windows and doors to focus on the stunning views of the Santa Ynez Mountains and the new pool and gardens by her friend Nancy Josley Bauer.
Inside, Susan directed her signature limited edition palette in a whole new direction. Stand-alone and highly sophisticated interiors highlight a cosmopolitan mix of select collectibles and a growing collection of artwork on paper.
Never resting on her laurels, she designed a new dialogue of personal spaces, eschewing formal entertainment for a comfortable life with friends and family, especially her three adorable granddaughters.
With endless curiosity and an open mind, Susan moved her design lexicon forward without giving up her sense of dignified living and a deep appreciation for art and simple elegance. Thank you Susan for welcoming us to Montecito’s divine sanctuary!
