sneak peek: amie weitzman’s connecticut cottage

by anne

Today we have a special treat: We’re visiting the two homes of NYC-based interior designer, textile designer and painter, Amie Weitzman. We’re starting with her Connecticut home, which is a small cottage on a lake. What Amie thought would be a few quick adjustments turned into almost an entire demo. With a mission to make the new house look like it had been there for 70 years, they added old floor boards, white-washed wood planks on the walls and ceilings, beadboard walls in the bathrooms and kept the original screened-in porch. The final result reflects Amie’s taste for classic and modern elements with a slightly playful vision. Special thanks to photographer John Gruen for the great tip about Amie’s homes and the beautiful photographs, and to James Leland Day for the fabulous styling! – Anne
