Inside Tony Duquette’s West Hollywood Home and Studio from 1965

125 years hb

For House Beautiful’s 125th anniversary this year, we’re rewinding time by exploring the best spaces from our archive—including, so far, decorator Sister Parish’s New York Apartment, and the timeless appeal of skirted furniture. Next up, we’re visiting the West Hollywood home and studio of designer extraordinaire Tony Duquette, as seen in a 12-page spread first published in our June 1965 issue, where we dubbed it “the house of a magician.”

To truly grasp the significance of—and explore the history behind—the former residence of one of the design world’s greatest visionaries, we spoke to Hutton Wilkinson, who worked alongside Duquette on both interior and jewelry projects for nearly five decades. He now serves as the president of the Anthony and Elizabeth Duquette Foundation for the Living Arts, which is, in part, committed to preserving the legacy of Tony Duquette.

A San Francisco woman who questioned a man writing “Black Lives Matter” on his own home has apologised for assuming he did not live there and calling the police on him.

“I want to apologise directly to Mr Juanillo,” Ms Alexander said in a statement. “There are not enough words to describe how truly sorry I am for being disrespectful to him last Tuesday when I made the decision to question him about what he was doing in front of his home. I should have minded my own business.”
