Come take a look at Brett Heyman’s gorgeous Connecticut sanctuary. Heyman is the founder / designer of Edie Parker accessories. She lives in Manhattan with her husband, daughter, and 2nd baby on the way in a Mid-Century, colorfully loud and visually funky apartment. And when it came time for an upgrade, the couple bought a traditional colonial home in Connecticut as a get-away from the busy city. Heyman explains that to compliment her vibrant Manhattan apartment, she wanted something more quaint and neutral, an actual escape. She hired New York interior designer, Mark Cunningham to design the space. Cunningham has passion for finding rare, exquisite pieces and connected instantly with Brett.
The family uses the entire property, inside and out – The outside spaces are as considered as the interiors (outdoor patio, apple orchard, pool, fireplace, etc.). The overall design of the interior is muted and neutral but there is a sense of Brett in the house with the random pop of exciting colors. And there is also a magical treehouse built for her children in the backyard. The house as a whole is a masterpiece in simplicity and restraint. Those green walls with that sisal. A+ I like that the home feels elegant and comfortable and casual at the same time.
