I’m not sure how I missed this delightful home from Architectural Digest last fall, but it is so charming I just had to share! Located in Litchfield, Connecticut, the 3,000-square-foot home dates back to the 18th century and is owned by Percy Steinhart, founder of Stubbs & Wootton. When Percy purchased the property, it was in need of extensive renovations, which he oversaw with the goal of preserving the home’s bones. Influenced by the greats including Van Day Truex, David Hicks, Billy Baldwin, Anthony Hail, and Mario Buatta, Percy did all of the interior design without commissioning a professional designer. He scoured auctions and galleries for treasures including Christie’s, the local art auctions in Litchfield, and Stair Galleries in Hudson, New York. Most everything in the house is from the late 18th or early 19th century, but with splashes of contemporary art. The result is a delightful mix of classic design and whimsical details… Just like Percy’s Stubbs & Wootton slippers!
A true timeless classic! For additional details, please visit Architectural Digest.
