ne of my favorite parts of this job is being invited into such fabulous homes. A private tour means that I get to hear the stories behind each room and see the spaces where memories are made; from the dining rooms where holiday dinners are served to the kitchens where families Itgather.feels extra-special when I get a peek inside a designer’s home; a chance to see their style executed without constraint. And with this issue, you get to come along, too. Our first stop is at Shelley Morris’ new (and according to her, final) home in Westport (p. 34). Starting with a freshly-painted neutral base, she deftly adds a career’s worth of collected furnishings and antiques to create a calming retreat. It’s a bit busier in Fairfield, where Olivia Charney balances her design business with a husband, children and 600 (!) chickens on nine acres of farmland in Greenfield Hill (p. 44). The Southern-raised Charney puts her glamorous touches on the farm’s house, adding salvaged architectural elements and feminine finishes wherever possible. Finally, we head into the Easton woods, to the glass-walled home of Brooklyn transplants Christine Stucker and James Veal (p. 56). As the faces of design firm Stewart-Schafer, they transform spaces with a focus on quality materials and a clean aesthetic. For their own home, they allowed the unique, modern architecture to guide their decisions, layering minimalist pieces and adding custom millwork to create rooms that work for their small family (which includes a young son).

If you’ve got kitchens on the brain—as I always do—you’ll be happy to see what we cooked up in our coverage of the latest trends (p. 21). It’s packed with fresh ideas for everything from countertops to cabinets as well as inspirational projects from local designers.

Accurate has been a lifelong investor in not only modern, advanced equipment, but also in training and empowering its employees, who are “the lifeblood of our company,” according to Salvatore.

S ince its July opening, Arden’s café in Rowayton has seen a steady stream of visitors. Owners and Rowayton locals Jill Brody and Laura Jayson knew just what the charming seaside town needed: a neighborhood spot for coffee, a seasonal, fresh but un-fussy menu, and a gathering spot for the community. Word of mouth spread quickly about the offerings, sourced with ingredients from Flour Water Salt Bread in Darien and Millstone Farm in Wilton, as well as delicious treats baked by Jayson, a former pastry chef. But we’re guessing that returning customers are also coming back to steal some inspiration from the Mediterranean coastal design. Wave-like woven pendant shades hang overhead, and streaks of ocean blue show up on striped seat cushions and hand-dyed napkins.

Prudence Bailey of Prudence Home & Design had a unique vision for her client’s historic kitchen. In hopes of showing off the original brick behind the sink, she came up with the curved design for the quartz backsplash. It was a first-time request for the fabricator, and a headboard was used as a guide to trace the shape.

Who lives here?
My husband and I. Our thinking had always been, “Once our daughter has a husband, and we have a grandchild, we want them to come and stay with us, so we need plenty of room.” But what ended up happening is that my daughter found a house two miles from us! So, we don’t really need all the space we currently have, but it is nice. We did a tremendous amount of work on it, so in many respects, it’s like a brand- new house while still having the charm and character of an older house. How did you find your house, and what elements attracted you to it? We had sold our home in New Canaan, and we had a three-or four-month closing. We knew we wanted to live in Westport. It had always been a dream of ours to retire there because of how great the community is. The reason we were attracted to this particular property is because we fell in love with the Old Hill neighborhood. We were a little nervous about moving too close to the water because of climate change and flood insurance. We’re in our sixties, and the idea of having to deal with those kinds of costs going forward was not attractive to us. So, we wanted an area that was far enough away to not have to deal with flooding, but still close enough to town, which we are. I actually walk to my daughter’s house and back! The property is a mature property, so we knew we wouldn’t have to be landscaping it.

I’ve been in this business for 30 years, so I’m a bit of a collector. I think most designers are. I had a lot of furniture that I had brought with me from prior homes; things I really loved, and pieces of furniture that were given to me from clients who were moving or downsizing. The art and the collections I have all hold great meaning for me. I wanted to do a lot of work to make sure that I could incorporate them into the new space, which I really was able to do, for the most part, minus a few things that I wanted my daughter to have for her home.
My husband and I spend the bulk of our time on the first floor. We tend to sit in the great room, which has a large, contemporary, L-shaped sectional. It’s a very inviting space to be in. But we also love the main bedroom, which is on the first floor of the house. I remodeled the space from a sitting room that had a very small closet and a very tight bathroom into a reorganized space with a large closet, a smaller sleeping area with bookshelves, and a really cozy fireplace. There’s also a little dressing room area, and I enlarged the bathroom to have two sinks and a nice bathtub.
What’s the story behind your antiques and the collectibles on your walls?
What room is the heart of your home? Why?
Tell me about the kitchen design.
Tell me about the color palette. It kind of goes back to my trajectory in design. When I first started, it was the ’80s, and everybody was doing English-country, ultra-layered, tons of pattern, colors all over the place, jewel tones, and all of that. I found that all those colors, patterns, and layers became suffocating. I liked it for a period of time, and then I grew tired of it. I was drawn to light, airy, more minimalist spaces. Even though I love to collect things, I don’t really look to display those things all at once. I do find that if the envelope of the house—meaning the walls, the ceilings, and the floors—is kind of neutral, you can really bring things in as needed. You can get color from things like a book collection, or a beautiful sheet on a bed, or throw pillows, or ceramics. By keeping the walls mostly white and doing some accents of black, the house has a dramatic feeling while remaining neutral, so that when I want to introduce color, or change my collections, or put art up, I’m able to do what I want to do.
I’m not a big cook, so I’m not as particular about how the kitchen is arranged. I like to have storage, so we have a nice butler pantry. The kitchen itself has a lot of lower cabinets, because I like a more European vision for a kitchen, where you’re not surrounded by tons of cabinetry all over the place. It has a double oven, an island, and stove. It originally had limestone countertops that were chipping and just didn’t look very fresh anymore, so I removed them. Not even meaning to, I found this absolutely stunning piece of quartzite in a stone yard that immediately struck me as an abstract piece of art. It was an interesting find, in that I was already going in this direction of black and white, and I then found this beautiful black and white quartzite that became the new countertops. That was the “I do find that if the envelope of the house meaning the walls, the ceilings, and the floors— is kind of neutral , you can really bring things in as needed. ” —shelley morris

I’m very influenced by Northern European, sort of Nordic design and Swedish design. About 20-some-odd years ago, Axel Vervoordt had burst onto the design scene, and he just took my breath away with his spaces. His first venture into design was more architectural, and he’d buy these homes—usually castles or mansions—throughout Antwerp and Belgium and totally redo them, furnishing them with modern art, adding finishes to the walls, and using color in very new ways. The homes were transformed from being old, dark, and outdated to being fresh and timeless. It was very light and airy, and I just glommed onto it! I am such

You should always have a furniture plan, no matter how experienced of a designer you are. I had created a furniture plan before I even started doing anything. I took inventory of what I had, and plotted each space, like I would do for any client. I did the work ahead of time, and that’s what any good designer would do. How would you describe your style?
I love Japanese design. I think the originals of that piece were Noguchi, at one time. Since I have a very high ceiling in the living room, I wanted to do something that would give me nice light and be very soft-looking. I kept seeing images of these Noguchi-style lanterns, and I love that look, so I ordered it and waited quite a while for it to come in!
So that piece came to you first, and you designed around it?
We love the oversize lighting in the living room. Tell me about your plan for that room.
I tend to design more holistically, around the vibe of the entire house.
centerpiece, for me, of the kitchen. I also painted the cabinets, changed all the hardware on them, and replaced all the appliances with new ones.
I’m extremely happy with the kitchen, and I love being in it.

I like to walk into my home and feel that it is personal; that it’s an expression of who I am that is very specific, and that it’s been crafted to suit my own needs, my personality, my husband’s personality, and how we live our lives. And that I have a lot of “old friends.” My decorative pieces, like my Asian screens and my artwork, have been around for 40 years, almost! I even have a ficus tree that my husband and I bought before we had our child. It’s 40 years old and sits in our family room. We call it Auntie Ficus, and it’s my daughter’s only sibling.

It’s always my goal to create a space that feels appropriate and timeless. To me, that’s the best possible outcome of a project.

My husband is a real estate professional and developer. We’ve always had this kind of relationship where he finds the real estate and then passes it over to me. He found this site after looking for a long time. We didn’t end up purchasing it until 2014. Originally, we had plans and permits to work with the existing structure, but it didn’t prove to be the best decision. The house had not been maintained or cared for, and, sadly, I thought it was going to be too expensive and not ever be as sound, energy-wise, as we wanted it to be. We had to start over from scratch. It took us over three years to get the new house built. We had to rent locally before moving in here in 2017 as a family. Is it a functioning farm?
It is a fully functioning farm, open all year long. We have a little over nine acres, with three acres as orchards. We predominantly have various apples, but we also have Connecticut peaches, and about three acres with almost 30 different types of produce. The other third of the acreage is for the house and living. We just finished extensive construction of a brandnew barn that includes a farm store. We have other farmers we work with, and sometimes we’ll feature their crop because we are strictly seasonal. We don’t have a blank farm or a hot house or anything that allows us to grow out of season, so everything is authentically available when we are able to produce it. We have three employees and over 600 chickens, which is our primary business. We supply other restaurants and other markets. We do all the farmers markets, too, and we have our own market on site.
How did you find this house, and how long have you been here?

I think one notable aspect of Southern design is that it usually has a very strong foundation and is rooted in a historical context. I grew up with a mother who was an English professor, but funnily enough, she loved decorating and making a home. I think those seeds were planted by her when we were on the hunt in fancy antique stores in downtown Charleston. She just loved “the find,” and I did as well. I majored in political science and psychology before I went to the New York School of Interior Design. Ultimately, I think that creative part of my brain won out. But Southern culture is layered; it’s very nuanced. I love the beauty of something that has a story that isn’t so perfect or staged. When you look for the soul of something, its appeal can meet you on many levels, and not just because it looks pretty sitting in a space.
Living on a farm has always been a dream of mine! I’ll invite you over for coffee! I feel like everyone romanticizes farm life. I grew up on an island in South Carolina, and I would pretend to be a mermaid, and dream about marrying some guy whose dream it was to have a farm. Fortunately, both of us have full-time careers that afford us this luxury, because it is a tough, tough existence if you try to live exclusively off farming. It’s great for our family, and the kids love it, but it’s quite challenging. I’ve learned a lot. We know you’re a Southern girl at heart. How did growing up in the South impact your design aesthetic?

How did you tie those styles together?
How did you arrive at the idea of combining this farmhouse/ country feeling with the more modern/glamorous rooms?
Since we have dogs, we come in dirty, and we have so many children and people over, our mudroom is important. That little area of transition allows us to come in and be messy before we move through the rest of our home. Our dogs stay there; it’s the catch-all zone. For this home, we could not exist without it. I did use marble, and one of the bases of my foundation of design is my love for construction, and my materials tend to be fairly classic. I know that there are always design trends, but I find other ways to include them. I’m never very trendy when it comes to kitchens or bathrooms, or areas that date pretty well. I guess my other one is: you have to be fluid, and you have to be able to adapt. Everyone’s life is structured differently; you should never be pegged as that person who only has a specific look or formula, because then you’re just limiting yourself. You should try to remain open and adaptable to whatever that home needs.
I’d say that’s part of my personal approach. So, again, being Southern— you inherit, right? You have things that your family’s had, and you have to include those, because it wouldn’t be home without them. There are some people who just want fresh, and they start with everything new, but I had a lot of existing items from inventory. My parents and grandparents are gone, so I’ve inherited so much. And that’s what makes my home mine.
What are three non-negotiables for you to have in your own home?
Then again, I have this husband who is far more rustic than I am, and he always jokes that we’re like beauty and the beast. Our home represents us. He’s a little rougher around the edges: he wanted a farmhouse, but he married a Southern girl who lived in Charleston, which is a more formal atmosphere. So I had antiques; I had other stuff we added to the mix, and that is probably one thing that sets me apart: I’m not afraid to mix it up. I think you want to walk into a space and have an element of the unexpected. If I’m designing for someone else, I may temper that a little bit, but I think it’s interesting and it harkens back, historically, to the grand tour era. When very wealthy aristocratic families went abroad and experienced other cultures, they wanted to bring artifacts and very different things home, because it proved to society that they had the means to be well traveled and educated. I think your home should tell your story. Tell me about the gorgeous wood used for the beam ceilings and trim accents. I like to incorporate a ton of architectural salvage. I have sources from the East and West coasts that I source from. That wood came from New Hampshire; I was driving my daughter to camp one year, and we went to a salvage yard. Our front door is from a late 1800’s townhouse from the Upper East Side. Most people are surprised our house is new construction!
I don’t think the foundation of a house should be too trendy, because the easiest way to date a structure is to look at its kitchen and bathrooms. But if you find a pillow you absolutely love, and transition a few things out here and there, that’s really the easiest way to keep up with trends.
The fireplace wood, a lot of the lighting, and some other pieces in the entry hall, like those tall columns, are all salvaged. The columns are from President Taft’s apartment in New York. He had a massive rotunda that mimicked the Capitol Building, and one of the dealers that I worked with had the entire series. We couldn’t even replicate a lot of those details today if we wanted to. They give the house more depth and character.
How did the kitchen come together?
My husband and I realized we wanted one open space where everyone can gather, and he wanted a more modern, farmhouse kitchen, which I think really connected to what we were accomplishing there. He collects antique signs, so he was happy seeing those placed around the room. They all tell a fun story for us when we look at them. He’s also the one who introduced me to painted furniture, a lot of which we had already. We got it decades ago when it wasn’t as popular or as expensive.
How often are you redesigning your spaces (if at all)?
I’m reading magazines and looking for inspiration voraciously, so my eye knows. But it’s also about the investment. If you’re going to invest in artwork or building a new bathroom and kitchen, you’re not doing yourself any favors by making them too trendy, because you will be forced to replace them sooner or later. Bedding is an easy, quick way to update a space. And because of our lifestyle with kids and dogs allowed on

furniture I do find that I’ll replace bedding more often than anything.
Any future plans for the house and property?
There’s an expression: “A good house is never done.” It takes a long time for a farm to really establish itself; fruit trees take six years, at least. We’re just starting to enjoy the fruits of our labor and finally settle in. We had a terrible barn fire, so we had to build a new one, and I’m finally putting my flower garden in. And even after living here for a few years, we have just finished the second floor. So, it took a while, but we’ve rebuilt stronger and safer. We had a big sleepover barn party in June, and you should have seen how happy the kids were. They were in the fields picking strawberries, catching frogs, playing flashlight tag. We had s’mores and a bonfire, and

it was good, genuine fun. Nothing contrived, nothing crazy. They thought the chicken coop was the coolest thing ever. They were filthy but so happy at the end of the day. So that’s the good thing about the farm: people love it.

above: Because the house has such a strong aesthetic, Stucker says furnishing it was the easy part—especially since they were able to use pieces they already owned. below: The couple immediately fell in love with the architecture of the house, which includes oak beams and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Tell us about how you got started with your design business.
Christine Stucker: We started dating, and I was just on my way out of one corporate design job and searching for another. James suggested I take a break and go travel with him for a few months. While we were traveling, we decided to start our own firm, and almost immediately we landed a huge retail job. We grew organically and moved from designing retail stores into residential design. Having the network of fabricators and vendors from building out large retails stores has really given us an edge in residential.
CS: We’d been searching—casually looking—for three years. We were heavily focused on New Canaan; this style of home is much more common there. We knew nothing about Easton, but I had this search set up to get an alert when anything remotely like this aesthetic came on the market. As soon I saw this listing come up, I showed it to James, who flipped out. We called the realtor to make an appointment for the following day, and she thought we were out of our minds.

How did you find this house?
above: A Ben Soleimani rug grounds the downstairs double-height living room, which also includes a pair of Arne Norell chairs and a B&B Italia sectional sofa. The art above the fireplace is by Christine Stucker.
The kitchen—which gets a lot of use—held up because of the quality of the original design and craftsmanship. The addition of clé tiles on the backsplash, countertop from Foro Marble on the island, dishes from Wren Pottery, and stools from DWR complement the original appliances, cabinets and stainless steel counters.
CS: You have to have a lot of love for a house like this. My mom says this house is James’ one true love (laughs), but it’s truly a labor of love. All the glass has to be replaced at some point. The exterior has be painted and dealt with regularly. We’ve done an extensive amount to the house already. What were some of the changes you made?
JV: It’s always nice when find a home that was built as somebody’s dream home versus something designed by a developer.
What is the history of the house?
JV: As far as design changes, the family room was a big one, the kitchen was a big one. All the exterior, resurfacing the decking and replacing the rails; lighting in the kitchen. We redid the whole front of the house.
James Veal: We were coming from Brooklyn, where we had bought homes before, and the environment there is cutthroat and crazy.
SEP/OCT 2022 athome 61
CS: We knew immediately after walking through the front door. We didn’t even need to speak; I already knew we’d be moving in. We made an offer on the spot and asked them to remove it from the market. It all got wrapped up pretty quickly. We knew the value of this house, and it wasn’t something we could recreate.
CS: The first thing we did was replace the windows.
CS: The kitchen was a massive change. It had black granite and this glass blue tile backsplash, and brown faux marble floor. We kept the original cabinets and custom hand-rolled stainless steel counters. Being a designer, “We knew immediately after walking through the front door. We didn’t even need to speak; i already knew we’d be moving in .” STUCKER
CS: The original owners built this house in 1984 with an architect from California. They’re a family with a daughter who has MS. The reason there are so many decks is because they wanted her to be able to go outside in the wheelchair. There’s an indoor pool because the wife—who was a physical therapist—did her therapy here. They really didn’t spare any details. They put so much love into this house. We’ve made changes, but we’ve only tried to enhance the original home. We’re the third owners, and it’s a special house.
CS: We added rugs, the coffee table, the dining table, the outdoor furniture. A lot of the furniture we had, and it was an easy transition. The house has such a strong aesthetic on its own, it was easy to furnish and fill in what was missing.
above: Stewart-Schafer created the custom millwork in the cozy upstairs family room. In addition to shelving and cabinets, they were able to carve out a desk space, complete with Eames chair.
JV: When we bought it, we talked about ripping down walls, redoing the whole kitchen, but we’re also purists and saw the value in so much that was already here. The woodwork is so well made, it’s still in perfect condition. It’s a testament to good cabinetry and using good tradespeople. The appliances were top of the line at the time, but they’re all still relevant. The family room was also a big change. It was big and empty, and we weren’t really sure what to do with it. It took us a year to decide what we wanted. We needed a playroom, but we also wanted a room to watch TV and have a true family room where we could all hang out. We’re always in there. In terms of furnishing the house, did you bring pieces from Brooklyn or start fresh?
I’d never considered doing that, because it seemed so commercial, but I didn’t realize how expensive it is. Even though aesthetically it’s not my first choice, I knew we couldn’t rip it out. We made it better, changed a lot of details, but the important things that were original we kept and worked with.

above: The double-sided sofa is truly a one-of-a-kind piece. Stucker scored the modular pieces from a DWR outlet and opted for a custom fabric paint color (which she applied herself) over costly reupholstery. Now it’s the perfect spot for the family to lounge in front of the Wittus fireplace.
“We needed a playroom, but we also wanted a room to watch TV and have a true family room where we could all hang out . We’re always in there. —james veal
CS: I find myself sitting in different places and seeing different views, and architecturally, it’s just a really well-thought-out space. It made it easy for us to add that layer on top and really polish that. What would you say is your design aesthetic?
CS: Probably the kitchen.
Where do you spend the most time?
CS: In terms of our aesthetic, I would say we are purists. We love to work in all genres and bring each environment back to its simplest form. This allows you a focus on the space itself, and then we add layers of curated furnishings to reflect the homeowners’ personality. Each project we work on is unique, just as each client differs from another. We love to find the “story” the space wants to tell and bring it to life.
What’s your design process as a couple who live and work together?
JV: Often we bump heads, but if one of us feels strongly, we have to convince the other of our idea. We get frustrated, but sometimes the best stuff we come up with is because we fought it out.
CS: You have to be really passionate about what it is you’re arguing for. “We’ve made changes, but we’ve only tried to enhance the original home .”
JV: We both cook. I think the kitchen is the always the heart of every home. In the winter, the family room has a great European fireplace, and we like to spend time there.
CS: We really use the whole house.
CS: We only have one rule in our business: We both have to agree.
What do you love about this house?
JV: It’s inspired us to some degree in our designs. I didn’t realize it until we looked at some recent projects, and we can see certain elements from the house. Homes like this are just testaments to good design. This house will still be relevant in fifty years, as it is. It’s great for us as designers, to have a home that speaks to that idea.
