The House That Pinterest Built By Diane Keaton

A fascinating book by Diane Keaton that serves up a style guide, an inspirational tome, and a how-to volume on creating one's home, this book will serve as a go-to reference for all those seeking to spur their own creativity as they embark on the creation of home. The House that Pinterest Built defines what home and house mean to the celebrated movie star, who is known for her love affair with houses and design. Filled with ideas that reveal a personal yet engaging aesthetic, this volume includes compelling photos from Keaton s past homes and those she admires, as well as a multitude of details from every corner of those spaces and objects that excite and inspire the house designer and dreamer dramatic staircases and magical light fixtures, film stills and book covers, pottery and art drawn from the visual treasure trove known as Pinterest and Keaton's private collection, as she creates and designs her newest house.


Rich imagery is accompanied by Keaton's ideas for selecting furniture, kitchen layout, and bedroom design; she talks about the importance of lighting in the bathroom and why the living room needs to be reimagined. Beyond the interior, she explores curb appeal and environmental sensitivity, always with an eye to making home the way it should be a place of tranquillity, a place where one is restored and where one returns to dream again and again. The book culminates in the dream realized, the house she has imagined, designed, and made, now shared with the world for the first time in all-new photography.

The House That Pinterest Built By Diane Keaton. £32.50 at Amazon.

When I watch a Diane Keaton film I'm always interested in the design of the houses as she has such impeccable taste. And wonder how much of her own design ideas she puts into them.
