Showcasing the very best of interior and exterior design, this home in Greenwich, Connecticut, is a lesson in how to bring the outside inside, and how to create ‘garden rooms’ outside with careful landscape design. It’s not easy to blend a home and garden in this way, but this contemporary New England-style home gets it just right. For that reason, we consider it one of the world’s best homes, and we’ve asked its owner, landscape architect Janice Parker, and designer Jamie Drake, of Drake/Anderson, who designed the interiors, to show us some of the highlights – inside and out.

Designer Jamie Drake explains that his goal with this home was to ‘enliven, enrich and give personality to the simple backgrounds of the house’. He adds that he was inspired by his client Janice who, as a landscape architect, ‘is attracted to the colors of the garden, from bright florals to earthy mosses. Her husband Jim White is an author and speaker and was attracted to this house for its bright light, and we strove to maintain that throughout.’

Kitchen ideas include a contemporary white country cabinetry design with pale wood floors which flow throughout the house. ‘We selected Cab Stools designed by Mario Bellini in 1977 to add a note of design depth. These steel framed seats wear a “slipcover” of leather, an original and inventive design,’ says Drake, who explained that landscape designer Janice has a great appreciation of the classic designers of the 1960s and 70s.

Explaining his dining room ideas for the formal dining space, Drake says ‘We centered the room with a table by Jamie Drake for Theodore Alexander, its pair of bold, bronzed torsade bases supporting the top of dramatically grained wood. A matching buffet anchors the far wall, with a print by Barabara Takenaga from Shark’s Ink above, framed in a moss color which connects to the channeled velvet chairs.’ The framed print and green velvet chairs strike us as the perfect choices for the home of a landscape architect

A pair of comfortable swivel chairs, a mid-century styled pull-up chair and stool, and classic period Warren Platner wire frame Easy Chair create a room designed for easy and relaxed chatting.
