Litchfield County: Happening in the Hills
On Our Radar
Faces, places, treasures, and trends that caught our attention
Marion Cooper Farrell, a graduate of New Milford high school, never thought she’d return to the area after she left for college. An avid runner, she discovered Pilates while living in Hawaii and experiencing lower back pain. She became hooked.

Before entering this very special boutique, one takes notice of the building in which it is housed. It is situated at the end of the shopping mecca that is New Preston and is a prime example of what can be done with a historic building when placed in the right hands. And there are none better than those of Michael DePerno and Andrew Fry, co-owners of Plain Goods.
Wiley Design
It’s been a busy year for interior designer John Willey. After living in New York City for over 20 years he and his husband sold their apartment, moved to a rental, sold their house in Dutchess County, bought a new one in Lakeville, and experienced the birth of their daughter. And yet he is still smiling.

Greca Restaurant
Last November Dino Kolitsas opened his new Greek restaurant, Greca, in New Milford. As events would soon reveal, it was not a particularly auspicious time to be in the restaurant business. Still, for those diners who have discovered the delights of his kitchen, eating at Greca is truly one of the only best things about the annus horribilis of 2020.

A note from Mary Beth:

This time last year I was thanking all those who took part in our annual Savor Litchfield food event. Unfortunately, the pandemic put a stop to that this fall but lucky for us it hasn’t prohibited us from curating wonderful stories about our community. Speaking of community, the pandemic has brought many new neighbors to Litchfield County and we are excited to welcome you!

Since so many of us will be spending more time in our homes in the foreseeable future, we thought it timely to create a design focused  issue that includes a  comprehensive Design Resource Guide. We share a renovated 18th century home that now also functions as art studio and gallery; an accessories and home goods designer’s Kenyan and European influenced home; the Mayflower Inn’s redesign; and the founders of a custom wallpaper boutique located in Bantam. We feature some local interior designers, a Warren micro-farm farmer, a boxing studio owner, boutique owners, and a Pilates gym owner. There is also a special Seniors section. Enjoy the issue and as always, thank you for your support!
