Designer of the week: Lisa Hilderbrand

How’s your week going? Kids are home, day 1 and everybody’s losing it. It’s been raining so hard all day, I am watching sadly how all the blooms get pounded off. All the rose petals are on the ground like some romantic gesture gone array, peonies got killed off for good and poor phlox cant even stand up under this torrential downpour. Kids are fighting as they are already poured and NOONE is interested in organizing the playroom. Might have overshot there.

I usually do a house of the week but occasionally just feature a designer: Lisa Hilderbrand lives actually really close me here in Connecticut. I emailed her once telling her if she needed an office manager or assistant, I’m her girl. Shockingly she didn’t call asap. LOL. But she (Hilderbrand Interiors) is amazingly talented and has given new life to an antique colonial she lives with her family.

This photo is tempting me to paint the doors black! And those floors!

Everyone and I am guilty as well is going for white and grey and marble but I love the moodiness of this room and I’ve always adored paneled rooms, gentleman’s library style. So cozy!


Big farmhouse kitchen.

Loggia – love.


And really the main reason we should be besties is that her holiday decor style is amazing.  Should you want to bookmark this for holiday, she shared her holiday decorating tips with Traditional Home.

I like that she didn’t try to make this house something else, she kept it true to it’s style. Here’s another project of hers that I pinned awhile ago, much different look.

Love love love these antiqued mirror panels.
