Home Tour: Inside a Connecticut Farmhouse With Vintage Soul
Saturday, October 18, 2014
Settled into a career as the author of her lifestyle site, as well as being an interior stylist and floral designer, Amy Beth Cupp Dragoo and her husband decided to leave the city life. They sold their SoHo loft and purchased a property in the hills of Litchfield, Connecticut, for weekend getaways and rented a small postage stamp-sized apartment in New York City for the workweek.
Amy adapted to country living; she had plenty of space, was able to enojy sunrises and sunsets, and quickly learned to take design cues from Mother Nature. “I was inspired by the colors you see during winter in northwest Connecticut,” she says. “Black, gray, brown, pale blue, and stark white. By the time I added art, rugs, and scatter pillows, the vibe changed a bit, but if you stripped all of my furniture out of here, you’d see only neutrals.”
“I refer to my husband as Mr. Design Within Reach”
Amy, who has been collecting anything vintage since college, styles each room for their purpose. The kitchen has a focus on contrast, the living room is elegant, and the bedroom is dark and gloomy. We Love how Amy styles pieces of different scales and shapes them together, creating unmatched personally in this beautiful Connecticut home.
