Designer Ellie Cullman, honorary design chair for the Designer Showhouse on the Green (an 1834 Georgian that was remodeled in the mid-1800s into a Greek Revival) in Fairfield, discusses the joys and challenges of working on a showhouse. An enthusiastic advocate of historic homes, the designer also provides insights into the character, elegance and irreplaceable appeal of living in a home with a past.
