Overview

A glimpse into the "quintessentially Greenwich" homes that are stately and elegant yet designed for the comforts of family life. Greenwich is one of the most desirable communities in the United States, with houses that epitomize the suburban tradition. With their handsome facades and elegant interiors, these homes provide inspiration to decorators and homeowners nationwide. More than almost any other community, Greenwich signifies a classic look, a way of living, and a state of mind. Cindy Rinfret’s successful Classic Greenwich Style was the first book to celebrate the style of this classically American town and bring its renowned look to a nationwide audience. Now, the beloved designer returns with an all-new selection of interiors that will appeal to a new generation of homeowners seeking elegant yet comfortable design. Specially commissioned photographs showcase the designer’s signature "young traditional" style: a warm blend of color, contemporary materials with traditional shapes, antiques with transitional pieces, English-style furnishings with family heirlooms, and spaces for entertaining and family life. In her own words, Rinfret offers an intimate look into these stunning interiors—including Rinfret’s own classically styled house, Laurel Hill—and shows how people who covet the look and style of Greenwich can create it for themselves.
