Tichenor & Thorp, a Los Angeles design firm founded in 1990, is known for creating exceptional properties that integrate large-scale residences and luxurious landscapes into a singular, unified vision. The firm is often called “Hollywood’s best-kept secret,” and the new book “Outside In,” shares that secret with the world.

Featured are a Spanish-inflected courtyard house and garden in Las Palmas; a Bel Air estate tinged with English and French influences; a Newport Beach hilltop hideaway that evokes a Portuguese quinta; two luxe Manhattan apartments; and a mountain getaway in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Stunningly illustrated, the book is filled with specially commissioned photographs by Roger Davies, as well as Brian Tichenor’s own watercolors, drawings and plans.

Published Sept. 26, the book has drawn high-praise from leading designers all over the world. Mayer Rus, the West Coast editor of Architectural Digest, called it “a master class in harnessing the wonders of the so-called indoor/outdoor lifestyle.” At Amazon, where the hardcover currently sells for $42.99, one five-star review summed it up in two simple words: “Absolutely beautiful!” To purchase or learn more, go to http://amzn.to/2lk9cTW.
