When designer Brittany Bromley and her husband, landscape architect Matthew Bromley, came across a center hall Colonial built in 1790, they were enamored with its bones but terrified by its condition. However, what they thought would be a decades-long project only took eight months and a lot of stamina to make it livable! Newly married, the Bromleys tackled the restoration with preservationist detail, installing era-appropriate touches whenever possible. When finished, the house jump-started Brittany’s interior design career when her neighbors came to visit. She told House Beautiful, “When they saw what I had done with my home, they asked if I would do theirs. I said, ‘Well, do you know that I don’t even have a resale number?’ They said, ‘We don’t care. We’ll pay retail.’ ” Within six months, she had two employees and a dozen projects.
I am a huge fan of Brittany’s work, and I was delighted to see her beautiful home featured in the current issue of House Beautiful… Let’s take a tour with images from the publication and Brittany’s portfolio.
