Designer Tony Duquette's legendary Dawnridge, located in Beverly Hills, is one of the most creatively designed private homes in America. Built in 1949 by Duquette and his wife, Elizabeth, the original structure was a modest 30 x 30 foot box. Hutton Wilkinson purchased the home following Duquette's death in 1999, and he has since breathed new life into the estate, broadening the property, adding houses of his own design, and incorporating remarkable objects designed and created by the Duquettes. Written by Wilkinson, Tony Duquette's Dawnridge chronicles the luxe and historic home's transformation. The book is organized by the three main houses, and Wilkinson elaborates on the spectacular design elements in each room and shares the stories behind the spaces. Tim Street-Porter's photographs show both the original and redesigned rooms. "It's quirky and chic and comfy all at the same time. Have a look at the Monkey Room, a glassed-in porch overlooking the garden. Duquette used it as storage and Wilkinson brought it to life. There's the signature Duquette leopard-print carpet on the staircase leading down to the summer and guest bedrooms." , MailOnline "An inside look at one of the most famous and inspiring private homes in Beverly Hills. Built in 1949 by Duquette and his wife, Dawnridge's original structure was modest. Interior designer and Duquette's business partner Hutton Wilkinson purchased the estate following Duquette's death in 1999, and he chronicles the house's transformation. The book shows both the original and redesigned rooms.
