This Connecticut home in a forested setting gets a charming update

contemporary-kitchen

This contemporary home was reimagined by Becca Interiors to meet the needs of a young family relocating from the city to charming Darien, a coastal town in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Located in the backcountry, the homeowner wanted a peaceful homestead to raise their family.

Having no recent renovations within the last few decades, the designer worked to reinvent the home to not only update it to meet the lifestyle needs of the family, but also breathe new life into it. Continue below to see this beautiful home tour that is full of warmth with a classic and timeless palette that mixes natural finishes, raw materials, and thoughtful balance.

The renovation began with the heart of the home, a gut renovation of the kitchen was implored, implementing a custom stucco hood, accompanied by a customized 13-foot island.

Collected, customized, and antique pieces were integrated throughout this home’s design scheme, making it a true labor of love. This residence no longer lives as a home from the past but is now refreshed, leaving enough room for its new family to make countless fond memories.
