Carolyne Roehme’s Weatherstone

I’m not sure why, but for some strange reason I find it very amusing when foreign magazines highlight properties in the United States. I guess just as much as American’s are fascinated with great European design, European’s are intrigued by us as well! I can only assume. But great design is worthy of worldwide acclaim and in this month’s issue of Marie Claire Maison (Italian edition) there is a multi-page spread featuring Weatherstone, designer Carolyne Roehm’s beautiful Connecticut estate. If you aren’t familiar with Carolyne Roehm, she is an acclaimed interior designer, author, style-maker, and fashion designer who worked along side Oscar De La Renta for nearly a decade. She makes life beautiful…carolyn-roehm-weatherstone connecticut

For Carolyne, Weatherstone was a real labor of love. In the late 1990’s the home burnt down due to an electrical fire. Over the course of 20 months, it was eventually rebuilt. Like any good designer, Carolyne turned the tragedy into an opportunity by reconfiguring many of the original rooms often combining several small spaces into larger ones. The home is refined and elegant. The gardens are perfectly manicured. The property is everything you could expect from the talented designer and author. The home has been highlighted by various publications and outlets but Marie Claire Maison features a few new pictures of the estate that I don’t previously recall seeing. Just in case you aren’t familiar with Weatherstone, I’ve also included a few other pictures previously featured in Architectural Digest and on One King’s Lane. If you’re like me, you can never get enough of Carolyne’s creations.carolyn-roehm-weatherstone connecticut 2

    This is re-visit worthy. I love her work and I have a few of her books. I don’t know whether I had ever seen (or noticed) the exterior front of the house. I have seen a great many of her gardens but don’t remember seeing the house from the front. It doesn’t look like I imagined. She is beyond talented and her new art work of flowers that she paints herself are staggeringly beautiful.
    Thanks for this.
    xo,

      How the heck are you, Karen?
      I’m glad you agreed that this was re-visit worthy. I never tire of her designs and always look forward to seeing something new. Her artwork is amazing and wish I had just an ounce of her talent as a painter.
