Hailed as an icon in Hollywood, Madeline Stuart s work is exceptional. AD wrote, in a city driven by artifice and spectacle, Madeline Stuart celebrates understatement, authenticity, and elegance without affectation. The daughter of Mel Stuart, who directed Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (in which Madeline had a cameo) and a decorator mother whose work was favored by film stars, Madeline grew up part of the Hollywood elite. Her client list has included Larry David, the late Nora Ephron, Fleetwood Mac s Lindsay Buckingham, art collectors David and Susan Gersh, and many more. In No Place Like Home, Stuart shares eight recent houses, from her renovation of Cedric Gibbons s LA house to a newly built Montana ranch to a Mediterranean-inspired home on the coast of La Jolla, CA. All have been newly photographed for the book, with oversized detail shots mingling with full rooms and exteriors. Stuart shares her design process for each home, from her initial vision through execution. Committed to the notion of timeless design, be it modernist or traditional in inspiration, Stuart brings her extensive knowledge base to every home she designs. Her skill with scale, proportion and balance, along with her unexpected combinations of furniture and elements and keen sense of history and craftsmanship, result in richly layered residences that feel authentic to their period and place, while remaining always relevant, modern, and beautiful.

Madeline Stuart is an AD 100 interior and architectural designer and creator of the Madeline StuartCollection, a line of custom designed furniture. Madeline Stuart is a leading member of the Los Angeles design community whose wide-ranging clientele comes from the entertainment industry and the world of business and finance. Equally at ease designing a 1920 s Hollywood hacienda, a Fifth Avenue Manhattan apartment or a Rocky Mountain retreat, Stuart stresses, above all else, the fundamental marriage of integrity and beauty. Her projects reflect a collaborative relationship between architecture and furniture, function and form, client and designer. She grew up in Beverly Hills, the daughter of a producer/director father and decorator mother whose work was favored by film stars. Her father directed Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (in which Madeline had a cameo) and credited her with its creation: My father made Willy Wonka because I begged him to do it. I had one line. Since 1994, Madeline Stuart has restored and remodeled houses designed by architectural icons such as Gerard Colcord, Cedric Gibbons, Sylvanus Marston, and Paul Williams. In 1998 she launched her own furniture lighting, and accessories line, available at showrooms across the country. Her work has been featured in numerous publications.
