This house is, for the moment, the best representation of my design aesthetic. It is the house my husband and I designed with my dear friend and colleague, John Allee, of Allee Architecture and Design. I wanted a contemporary style house, but as it is surrounded by more traditional, New England style shingled houses, needed to have a somewhat traditional exterior. The interior is clean, open and completely neutral in color as a base, with color added by pillows and fabrics only, with a few old pieces thrown into the mix. This house is meant to host not only our family of five as it ages, but our friends from far and near.
