Do you happen to remember this photo (above) from my trip to the Spring 2012 High Point Market? I was thrilled to discover a common thread between this Tozai Home display by Dransfield & Ross and Lonny Magazine’s recent photo shoot of Cherryfields, the creative duo’s sublime Georgian Revival home situated in Somerset County, New Jersey…
My “deja vu” moment? The classical bust, perched on the bottom shelf (above), is artfully re-imagined as a focal point in their magnificent dining room (below)! I LOVE it! The “bust,” along with playful hand-painted gray striped walls, happily co-exists with a white marble Victorian mantelpiece once owned by Hartford Connecticut author Harriet Beecher Stowe…this more relaxed approach to tradition is a breath of fresh air! What could quickly turn stuffy and dated, feels altogether artful and new…too many favorite moments to count!
