California Romantica features the most important, yet rarely seen, residential examples of the California Mission and Spanish Colonial styles designed by such illustrious architects as Paul R. Williams, George Washington Smith, Wallace Neff, Richard Requa, and Lilian Rice, among others. From whitewashed stucco walls and cloistered patios to tile roofs and sumptuous gardens, each house shown is a rare masterpiece; splendidly appointed with authentic Monterey furniture, California tile, and Navajo rugs. Included among these magnificent seaside estates, canyon villas, and courtyard bungalows is Diane Keaton’s former home in Beverly Hills, which she thoughtfully restored with noted designer Stephen Shadley, and for which she has been recognized as a committed preservationist. As the author and compiler, Ms. Keaton brings her cinematic eye, a keen sense of natural drama, and a profound appreciation for the nuances of shadow and light to the elucidation of these buildings, through the selection of specially commissioned photography. Noted historian D.J. Waldie lucidly explicates the architecture and provides an intimate tour of a historic and distinctly Californian lifestyle.
