Sunnylands: America’s Midcentury Masterpiece

Friday, November 11, 2016

 

The pinnacle of midcentury style, an English country estate reimagined for the American desert, there is no other house like Sunnylands. A stately home, designed by A. Quincy Jones, one of California’s most signifi cant architects, it contains the only completely preserved interior by Hollywood’s legendary decorator-to-the-stars, William Haines that is open to the public. A new book ‘Sunnylands: America’s Midcentury Masterpiece’ (The Vendome Press) offers an intimate tour of this legendary property. The book can be purchased in the Sunnylands Gift Shop and at booksellers internationally. You can buy it online here.
