Tony Du­quette’s Dawn­ridge

Vancouver Sun - - BOOKS - 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 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.
