Designed in the 19th century by the legendary architectural firm McKim, Mead and White with grounds by Frederick Law Olmsted, this iconic Newport cottage has an impeccable pedigree. The homeowners commissioned J. Randall Powers to conduct a multi-year refresh with no deadline and no detail to be overlooked. Powers worked with his managing partner Christopher R. Alexander to retain all of the home’s original charm, character, and romance by mixing styles and eras to create a timeless design.
The beautifully designed interiors honor the home’s seaside location and appear to have evolved over the years, without being “too scrubbed up,” Powers told New England Home. With a delightful mix of geometric patterns, florals, stripes, animal prints, and iconic prints, this home is absolute perfection!
