For a home which has only known one owner for nearly six decades when the seller chose to sell in 2015 to another mother with three daughters, the Connecticut small town residence was assured to be in very good hands.
Local interior designer Raquel Garcia took the 1200 square home down to the studs, and in eight weeks revealed a home resembling what one might find on Cape Cod. A clean white aesthetic with offering four bedrooms upstairs creating a home with cozy space fit for comfort.
As someone who is drawn to cottages as well, the big lessons I am taking away from this space on the first floor is her use of white to enlarge the space which does have lower ceilings. As well, the hand-railing going upstairs as well gives the illusion of more space with its transparency and the combining of antique (newly upholstered) dining chairs and a bench with a modern pedestal dining table to soften the space.
