“Independently, we both had always had a passion for architecture, interiors, design and collecting,” explains Reed Krakoff of his series of beautiful homes showcased in Houses That We Dreamt Of: The Interiors of Delphine & Reed Krakoff (Rizzoli, $65) due out this fall.
The book features stunning photography by Ivan Terestchenko of the Krakoffs’ homes in East Hampton (the Arts and Crafts circa 1917 estate Lasata that was once the summer home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis); New Canann, Conn.; New York City; Palm Beach, Fla.; and Paris.
“Our skill sets complement one another perfectly,” says Delphine. This is certainly evident in the book as the impeccably stylish pair—Reed is chief artistic officer of Tiffany & Co., and Delphine is the Paris-trained interior decorator behind Pamplemousse Design—share a glimpse inside their covetable collection of contemporary furnishings and art. “We have been fortunate enough to collaborate on site-specific works with some of today’s brightest talents,” says Reed of the masterpieces seamlessly integrated into the spaces.
Personal friends of the power pair, including Hamish Bowles, Simon Doonan, Tory Burch, Jacques Grange and Martha Stewart, all opine on the chic couple’s unique aesthetic. “A house becomes a home when it authentically reflects the unique style and way of living of the people who live there,” says Delphine. When asked if they have a favorite abode, Delphine democratically demurs, then says: “We love each home just like we equally loved the process of creating them.”
