At Home

I feel very fortunate to have lived in many different parts of

the US - from growing up in NYC and spending summers at our family lake house in the Berkshire mountains, to the

coast, high desert, and mountains of California,  a 91 acre

farm in New Hampshire,  the Piedmont region of South Carolina,  the Sonoran desert of Arizona,  the greater Boston area of Massachusetts, a pied a terre in Washington, DC and most recently and hopefully permanently, the stunning coast of Rhode Island.  

 

I have loved each and every place and each have influenced my approach to design. 

Inspiration Abroad

My husband David and I love, most of all, to travel, and our

34+ years together have been filled with many adventures on nearly every continent. 

The sensory experience of each place, its colors, texture, architecture, art, and landscape are what fascinate me, 

 

Capturing a bit of it, whether, in a photograph, a length of fabric, or a piece of pottery can give me inspiration for a room, a color scheme, or a decorative vignette. 

A person's or family's home should tell his or hers or their own story.  I pride myself in trying to bring that story out in the spaces I work on... how else will it be a home?

The Past Informing The Future

My first business started in 1991. A shop in a converted 1928 cabin overlooking beautiful Lake Arrowhead. We hosted art shows and seasonal food festivals. It was here that my love of design began.

Bringing the name with me to South Carolina and Arizona, of our beloved property in New Hampshire and my previous topiary and antique shop, I operated Jonny Cake Farm Antiques & Interiors until our move back east to Dunstable, MA  in 2003. 

Housed in a new two-story barn with an attached English greenhouse on the grounds of our restored 1812 home, SeasonS was my pride and joy for 12+ years. We hosted garden, art and antique shows, many fundraisers, and celebrated each season with joy. In Spring of 2010 we were thrilled to be featured in Early Homes Magazine.
