Overview

A presentation of quintessential country classic–style architecture and tasteful interiors—the epitome of picturesque New England. The county of Litchfield, Connecticut, is comprised of a pristine landscape of rolling hills, endless woodlands, green fields and streams, and early American houses. Annie Kelly presents the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century homes and their gardens—from quaint farmhouses and saltboxes to Colonial, Greek Revival, and Federal styles—of well-known decorators and tastemakers, including Bunny Williams, Carolyne Roehm, Matthew Smyth, and Robert Couturier, in this verdant setting. Rooms respectful of a panoply of historically rich New England architecture provide inspirational ideas for rural weekend retreats as well as family houses. These intimate and inviting spaces, along with their charming gardens, show much creativity and personal style. Litchfield Style also includes beautiful photographs capturing the small towns of this sophisticated corner of rural New England. A resource guide provides places of interest from eateries, village greens with legendary white steeple churches, and historic monuments to outdoor markets and antiques shops.
