Dawnridge is the legendary Beverly Hills, California, home of Tony Duquette (1914-1999), one of the 20th century's most prolific and influential designers. We asked contributing editor Paul O'Donnell to talk to its present owner, Hutton Wilkinson, longtime business partner and friend of Duquette. Wilkinson not only preserved the house and garden but managed to transform the estate into an ever-evolving laboratory of ideas.
