Rheinstein’s best-selling book, “At Home: A Style for Today with Things from the Past,” (Rizzoli, 2010) was followed by “Rooms for Living,” (Rizzoli, 2015). Gardens are a passion of Rheinstein, who lives in one of Los Angeles’ oldest neighborhoods, in a home built in 1913. Charities that she supports include the Garden Conservancy and Friends of Robinson Gardens. She and Williams both are on the National Advisory Committee for The Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville, an annual charity event raising funds to improve the lives

of children and families in the greater Nashville area. Rheinstein also supports LA Opera 90012, a program initiated by her late husband, Frederic Rheinstein, which every year provides free opera tickets to dozens of high school students who have entered an essay contest. Rheinstein and her work have been featured in numerous lifestyle publications and blogs. She has been part of AD100 and the “Elle Decor” AList. She recently received the Legacy Award from the Institute of Classical Architecture, Southern California, and the NYSID Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award.
