Litchfield County: Happening in the Hills
On Our Radar
Faces, places, treasures, and trends that caught our attention
Together, they have propelled Twenty2 to become a successful private-label wallpaper manufacturing company that helps more than 100 businesses develop and produce their own collections. When asked about the meaning behind their company name, the couple explained, “It’s our lucky number and both of our ages when we first met!”
Michael Quadland is big into heavy metal—not the jarring music of Metallica or Iron Maiden, but battered, bent, warped, patina-flecked, rusty metal. An artist, Quadland draws inspiration for his abstract paintings and sculpture from the Works Progress Administration and Ashcan schools that found beauty in the industrial landscapes of early 20th-century.
One of my most favorite parts of living in Litchfield County is how steeped these towns are in history. In the historic district of Milton there are so many homes and buildings from the 1700’s and 1800’s, many sitting on the beautiful town green. It makes Milton feel like it's out of another time. It's the same with Litchfield.
The Mayflower Inn, Washington’s venerable landmark resort, has a whole new look. When hotels shut down last spring in response to COVID, Auberge Resorts, which acquired the inn two years ago, used the closure to do a complete makeover, hiring New York-based designer Celerie Kemble to orchestrate the reimagining.
Bruce Young’s little slice of heaven is a scant three acres in Warren called Blue Gate Farm—and he’s far from bashful about the diminutive size. The land on Curtiss Road (named for Young’s paternal grandmother), is a micro-farm that has blossomed in the decade since he returned to the area to farm with his partner, Yobana Garcia.
While many local designers and home furnishing brands feared societal changes would force a shut down, the reality is that most are seeing higher demand for products and services. Litchfield Magazine polled the best-of-the-best locally to provide you with go-to design sources and tips for projects of any size.
