A funny thing happened the other day when I read Linda Merrill's blog Surroundings and the post she did here on the Nantucket Home of interior designers Lee Bierly and Christopher Drake featured in New England Home Magazine. I bought the issue for a closer look at their beautiful home and while thumbing through it, discovered a Connecticut home that Charles Spada had designed twenty years ago, but that he'd recently "refreshed" for the clients. My Charles Spada folder is well stocked with photos of his work and I immediately recognized this bedroom from several years ago...
And here it is in an earlier photo from hgtv's website. The quality of the New England Home photo is much better than hgtv's and the room looks warmer now with a new rug and bed linens including a taupe coverlet. My bedroom needs some sprucing up and the refreshed bedroom has a look I'd like to match--classic style with French flair that will never go out of style.
