Product info

In 1949, design world icon Tony Duquette and his wife, Elizabeth, bought what was at the time a modest thirty-by-thirty foot home in Beverly Hills. But it didn’t stay modest for long — over the next fifty years, Duquette expanded and renovated that original home, adding fantastical structures to its garden and redecorating each room with vibrant color, plenty of antiques and some of his own creations. Ultimately, he transformed it into Dawnridge, which is today known as one of America’s most creatively designed private homes. Tony Duquette’s Dawnridge is a luxe tribute to this historic home, chronicling its fascinating metamorphosis. Interestingly, it’s written by Hutton Wilkinson, Duquette’s pupil, protégé and collaborator, who eventually purchased the home following Duquette’s death in 1999. In the years since, Wilkinson has breathed new life into the property, broadening it further while also redecorating using pieces designed and created by Tony and Elizabeth in an effort to restore it to their true vision. Organized by the three main houses and the lush garden, this book offers a peek inside Dawnridge, with text by Wilkinson that elaborates on spectacular design elements and the stories behind the spaces and objects. A mix of archival images and lavish photography from Tim Streeter-Porter also illustrate the original and redesigned rooms. A stunning homage to Duquette’s unbridled imagination and the curious piece of design history he left behind, this book is a must-have for any creative.
