California Romantica

Author(s): Diane Keaton; D. J. Waldie (Text by); Lisa Hardaway (By (photographer)); Paul Hester (By (photographer)); D. J. Waldie


Curated, edited, and co-designed by film star Diane Keaton, California Romantica features houses in the Spanish Colonial Revival style with photography taken specifically for the book.

The book gives us the vision of a committed preservationist who fell in love with the Colonial-era and Spanish Colonial Revival architecture of Southern California as a girl. Keaton puts it succinctly in her introduction: "I knew I wanted to share the magic I'd felt within the aura created by the presence of Spanish architecture in Southern California ... I wanted to focus on details, a fountain, a staircase, a doorway ... I wanted the drama of light to reveal secrets that lay hidden beyond the facades ... I wanted us to give renewed vitality ... to the historic dream of living in a perfect California Spanish home."

A testament to this vision, California Romantica is at once an invitation to wonder and an ode to an extraordinary tradition.
