Happy Birthday, Thom Filicia!
For one New York duo, this stunning Connecticut Colonial is the perfect getaway from city-life. But Filicia, who is best known for his unique Americana style, ditched rustic decor and went for something a little more refined. "This house was a huge project," he told the magazine. He notes that his goal was to aim for "rooms that had a classical reference, but nothing stodgy."
Not surprisingly, Filicia did a stellar job, especially in the dining room. Although it's very formal, there is still something inviting about it, thanks to the upholstered wall and matching window treatments. But this warmth truly flows throughout the entire home, making it the perfect vacation house for a young couple.
