Tony Du­quette’s Dawn­dridge

Standard-Freeholder (Cornwall) - - ENTERTAINMENT - by Hut­ton Wilkinson. Abrams.

Wilkinson bought de­signer Du­quette’s bev­erly Hills home af­ter Du­quette’s death in 1999, chron­i­cling its ex­pan­sion from a tiny box house into an ex­pan­sive es­tate still filled with items picked by and cre­ated by Du­quette and his wife, Elizabeth. it’s quirky and chic and comfy all at the same time. Have a look at the mon­key Room, a glassedin porch over­look­ing the gar­den. Du­quette used it as stor­age and Wilkinson brought it to life. There’s the sig­na­ture Du­quette leop­ard­print car­pet on the stair­case lead­ing down to the sum­mer and guest bed­rooms.
