Led by the Junior League of Hartford, renowned interior designer and Honorary Design Chair Anthony Baratta and CTC&G’s Editorial Director, DJ Carey, 18 designers will transform a historic home in West Hartford into a showcase of luxury design for modern living. The home, located on one of the most sought-after streets in West Hartford, features a tiled foyer, large living room with enormous fireplace and original wood detailing, expansive kitchen overlooking a pristine brook, five bedrooms and three full baths, including an in-law suite and full lower level with screened in porch which leads out to beautiful park-like grounds and stonework.

“This home is the ideal blueprint for designers to translate their style and aesthetic into the way people live today,” says Anthony Baratta to we-ha.com, “The pandemic has shifted design away from the ‘great room’ that leads with a similar design style throughout each space, and more towards the traditional, historic home footprint with smaller rooms that can be both multi-functional but also offer respite from other areas of the home. I love the idea of seeing maximalism and color in one room but a very different style in another. With a historic home, designers really have an opportunity to show their personalities.”

“We are looking forward to shining a light on the Hartford design and cultural scenes in our summer issue,” Carey adds, “The capital region has always been on our radar for its rich architectural history. In fact, in 2011 we were lucky enough to lead the redesign of the Governor’s Residence. We are delighted to be back and part of this exciting project that highlights so much local talent.”
