Overview

Greenwich, Connecticut, has a mystique all its own. It epitomizes the suburban tradition in America, with houses that are among the country's most beautiful examples of colonial, Tudor, and English country style. This book offers a glimpse into homes that are "quintessentially Greenwich"—that capture the classic style and tradition of houses that are stately and reflect a life well lived. With their handsome facades and elegant yet comfortable interiors, these homes have provided inspiration to decorators and homeowners nationwide. In this richly illustrated volume, celebrated interior designer Cindy Rinfret provides entrée to the beautiful homes she has crafted with her exquisite eye for detail and unique decorating sensibility: a warm blend of color; contemporary materials with traditional shapes; antiques with inexpensive pieces; English-style furnishings with family heirlooms. All-new photography walks the reader through the twelve homes in the book, from their long, tree-lined driveways through their gracious entryways and into their elegant yet comfortable rooms. By opening these doors, Rinfret lets us inside an intimate and exclusive world and shows how people who covet the look and style of Greenwich can create it for themselves.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Located less than 30 miles from Times Square, Greenwich, Connecticut, seems worlds away from urban bustle. This affluent cloistered community contains stately homes that serve as pristine examples of colonial, Tudor, and English country architecture. In Classic Greenwich Style, interior designer Cindy Rinfret peeks behind the "private" signs to offer visual access in 12 superb town estates. A gorgeous pictorial; the next-best thing to living there.

    Exquisite!

    Cindy Rinfret personifies "livable elegance," and I want her to decorate my home! I enjoyed this book because it isn't simply a "picture book," but she walks us through several homes that she has decorated in/around Greenwich and details the process of decorating each & how she went about finding many of the pieces. Although a glorious book, it isn't at all pretentious or intimidating. If you enjoy interiors that are at once luxurious and welcoming, then this is the book for you (or a friend/loved one!). Love to see more from Cindy.

    The Perfect Christmas Present

    This is the perfect table top book for Christmas - buy this for all your friends who love beautiful things. The book is the epitome of elegance and old world taste and charm. Yet it is youthful and fun at the same time. A wonderful insight into the homes of Greenwich which we all read about.
