Greenwich, Connecticut, has a mystique all its own. It epitomizes the suburban tradition in America, with houses that are among the country's most beautiful examples of colonial, Tudor, and English country style. This book offers a glimpse into homes that are "quintessentially Greenwich"--that capture the classic style and tradition of houses that are stately and reflect a life well lived. With their handsome facades and elegant yet comfortable interiors, these homes have provided inspiration to decorators and homeowners nationwide. In this richly illustrated volume, celebrated interior designer Cindy Rinfret provides entr e to the beautiful homes she has crafted with her exquisite eye for detail and unique decorating sensibility: a warm blend of color; contemporary materials with traditional shapes; antiques with inexpensive pieces; English-style furnishings with family heirlooms. All-new photography walks the reader through the twelve homes in the book, from their long, tree-lined driveways through their gracious entryways and into their elegant yet comfortable rooms. By opening these doors, Rinfret lets us inside an intimate and exclusive world and shows how people who covet the look and style of Greenwich can create it for themselves.
