After fifteen years of buying and selling houses, award-wining actress and known design fanatic Diane Keaton decided the time had finally come to build her own dream home from the ground up. The process began with a search for inspiration and she turned to the usual architectural magazines and blogs she'd drawn from before— until a friend introduced her to the visual treasure trove that is Pinterest. She was immediately hooked, kicking off a three year journey of stockpiling countless images that each drove her creative vision. Keaton's new book, The House That Pinterest Built, is a compelling account of the resulting residence, from idea to realization. A revealing look at her personal style, this volume is filled with stunning shots of everything from exteriors and landscapes to dramatic staircases, magical lighting and dreamy baths, as well as inspiring details like film stills, book covers, art and pottery that each helped to drive Keaton's vision and turn her fantasy into a reality. Organized by room, these captivating images are paired with Keaton's insights and advice on all things design, from selecting the right furniture to planning a kitchen layout. It culminates with a look at the minimalistic, industrial-inspired home that Keaton imagined, designed and then made, captured in rich photos. Both a style guide and a how-to volume, The House That Pinterest Built is sure to inspire anyone looking to create their own dream home.
