there are those homes that you never forget- every detail is precise, every element is note worthy, the combination of all equals a home with it all- a home with great style!
you can’t buy style, i believe you either have it or you don’t. in this case the home with limit-less style is that of mega designers stephen sills and james huniford. i actually don’t know the exact story but sills and huniford were the it design team of the late 80’s and 90’s. since then they have broken up and started their own individual design firms- both brilliant, both talented- both with loads of style!
this home is in stark contrast to yesterday’s home of bunny williams and john rosselli, however, both are country houses and weekend retreats that were renovated to become personal reflections of the individual designer’s tastes, needs and style! different aesthetics, visions and formulas, but the same objective of turning a house into a home!
to create a home you have to analyze your style and determine what you love. in this case sills and huniford love order, function, light-filled rooms, monochromatic color schemes and spareness. their selections are breathtaking- the artful arrangement of museum worthy furnishings is unique, unexpected, simply refined- in this case, style defined!
