When Decor Worlds Collide

The title of this post could be referencing the well balanced mix of several styles and design periods in this creative and beautiful home.  However, what I was really aiming at here, is the fact that I just discovered that this house belongs to the owner of one of my favorite design stores, Mason.  Not only have I purchased several items from this fun shop, but I even wrote about a visit here.  What made this article from New England Home even more special for me, aside from these amazing images, was that it was styled and written by Stacy Kunstel, whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting several times!

    It's so refreshing to see rooms that aren't made of matched sets and that include pieces personally significant to the owners.

    That round table must be a cousin to my grandmothers (c. 1910's) where I'm having breakfast. My husband would be surprised to come home and find that a zebra had replaced one of the kitties, but would also wonder when I disappeared to bring it back home from what could have been an amazing trip.

  37. amazing photos! I could sit and stare at them for a few house if i didnt have work to do. I really adore the orange sofa. Orange can be a heavy color but the room still felt very light and airy.

  41. Hi nice to meet you!. Love your blog. Thanks for stopping by the other day. I love the shot of pinky purple in some of the pics (or would you call that raspberry?). It's a colour that i'm kind of afraid of and yet always makes a room look fabulous. Also was an exchange student in New Canaan when I was 17 so have incredibly fond memories of that town.

    What a huge compliment, Sue that you would feature this house! I loved styling this shoot and writing about Mason owner Kristin Gallipoli. She lives fearlessly and I think that really shows in her interiors and in her store. If only we could all have confidence like this! Hope to see you at gift show next week! xosk
