Diane Keaton is widely known for her work in theater and film, and has won numerous awards and accolades, including an Oscar for her role in Annie Hall and praise for her work as director of Unstrung Heroes. Author of California Romantica and House, she has been recognized for her architectural sensitivity and restorations.
"In "The House That Pinterest Built" (Rizzoli, $65, 272 pp.)
Diane Keaton provides a privileged peek into her 8,000-square-foot
industrial-chic dream home. It's a sprawling brick structure in
west Los Angeles's Sullivan Canyon boasting the kind of
rough-hewed, reclaimed features that proliferate on Pinterest, and
Ms. Keaton's book takes cues from her preferred inspiration engine.
Photos of pools, staircases, ladders and chairs that the actress
and author pulled from the site and from her own archives
ultimately provided blueprints for her home, offering a unique,
crowdsourced twist to the closed-door world of celebrity
living. 'Once upon a time, scrap bookers, collage artists,
image-driven addicts and appropriators like me were lonely hunters,
' Ms. Keaton wrote in the book's introduction. 'Now dare I say
billions of people discover, seize and enlarge their reference pool
with the variety of beauty allocated from others.' "
--The New York Times
"In the book -- a part historical photographic essay/style
compass/how-to/inspirational coffee table book -- the reader gets a
peek into the star's design process from her Pinterest pins to the
final product. "
--Hollywood Reporter "California-based author, director, and Academy Award winner Diane Keaton has a true passion and keen eye for home design. She decorates and flips homes in her spare time--and her book, The House That Pinterest Built (Rizzoli, out October 10) is her ode to that. Using Pinterest, the actress designed her new, 8,000-square-foot brick home from "the gifts of other people's addictive yearnings for the perfect home, with the perfect landscape and the perfect interior." With this homage to other people's favorite design elements and personal creations, she's eager to see how people respond to how she repurposed these ideas."
--domino.com "The style-guide offers glimpses of the new California house's sprawling rooms, complete with magic touches -- glimmering light fixtures, vintage clocks, rustic wood panels, and more -- pulled from or inspired by Keaton's boards such as "Breakfast of Champions." As Keaton says, 'Who knows, you might find one of your pins here.' "
--New York Magazine / The Cut
