About a year ago, we heard rumors that Diane Keaton was writing a book about her love affair with Pinterest. We almost couldn’t wrap our heads around it. Our favorite actress + our favorite source for decor inspiration? A dream!
The House that Pinterest Built (Rizzoli) details Diane’s latest design project — a home that she built from the ground up, all inspired by her Pinterest boards. (For those wondering, she signed up for the platform at the urging of her dear friend, Nancy Meyers.) The book features beautiful photography, while Keaton narrates the transformation of her home from digital tear sheet to realization in brick, stone, and wood. Her 8,000 square foot home took three and a half years, and her pins were brought to life with a combined effort of architects, contractors, designers, builders, landscapers, masons, electricians. The icon told EBTH, “These people are the people who built the house….With their savvy, their experience, and their kindness, they constructed an 8,000 square foot fireproof, earthquake resistant, bricked in, water resilient, plumped, alarmed, electrified, walled-in compound. And they did in spite of a of a constant influx of photographs that had to be considered and pondered in deference to the owners obsession.”
Last week, we joined EBTH — the premiere estate sale marketplace that’s 100% online — for an elegant soiree honoring Diane and this new book. U.S. Alteration, an upscale vintage shop in Beverly Hills, was packed with the best and brightest of LA’s design industry. The Keaton was flowing (Diane’s red wine, which she prefers served on ice), while guests enjoyed delicious bites provided by Annie Campbell and pored over the pages of the book.
Andy Nielsen (CEO of EBTH) reflects, “As the most renowned destination for unique vintage finds, EBTH was honored to partner with Diane Keaton, whose love of incorporating objects with soul and patina into her home matches the experience buyers and sellers have exploring our online marketplace. We were thrilled to celebrate her in a setting that rivaled her one-of-a-kind style.”
