House tour! Shippan Designer Showhouse

This week I’m shooting the Shippan Designer Showhouse in Stamford, Connecticut, for Traditional Home and New England Home magazines. I’m not going to tell you which magazine is shooting what, but here is a quick tour of rooms. You tell me what you would like to see in a magazine!
If you’d like to visit the showhouse you have until October 31.
This is the beautiful exterior. The house was built in the 1930s.

This is the entry way painted by Mural Interiors/Suzanne Bellehumeur.

The library was done by Greenwich-based Patricia LaPierre of Greenwich Design Architects.

Jack Fhillips Design completed the living room.

Dining room by Kenneth/Davis International. Does anyone recognize the Dunes and Duchess candelabra?

Victoria Lyon Interiors designed the Sun Parlor and worked with Urban Gardens on the potting shed.

The breakfast-family room were done by Designs by Jennifer Owen in Stratford, CT.

Kitchen by NuKitchens in South Norwalk, CT.

The boy’s room is by Holly Sutton-Darr, The Decorator’s Eye.

Master bedroom by Beverly Balk Interiors.

There’s a veranda off the master bedroom done by Judi Egbert Interiors of Greenwich, CT.

Tony Lyons of Bartony Design completed the daughter’s room.

Another children’s room was done by Debra Geller Interior Design.

New York-based Greg Lanza Design completed a third-floor guest suite.



  1. I’d love to see more of the showhouse, it looks really well done, love the entry and lots more.

    • I’ll get to work on that later this week and try to get more images up for you!

  2. You already know my favorite was the dining room! I think Trad Home will pick up Bartony’s girl’s room – lovely.

  3. I love the walls of the potting shed…authentic and raw…and a nice palette cleanser from the saturated colors.

    • Jeanne, I’m so glad you liked the potting shed walls. We thought they were way to interesting to cover up, and invited a more relaxed environment appropriate for any kind of creative venture from potting plants to making paintings and poetry!
      Thanks for posting the pictures Stacey!

    • Jeanne, so glad you enjoyed the potting shed. It was so much fun transforming such a traditionally utilitarian space into a creative retreat–bringing in the vertical garden and the moss bird mural, upcycling the pots into pendant lamps…love designing this!

  4. By far the most professional and unique rooms are the Library, Girls Bedroom and Dining Room.

  5. Saw the house a couple of weeks ago and the living room, library and dining room were fabulous. Bet they make it into either magazine!

  6. Total kudos to these fiecr designers and their vision and talent in pulling this off.
    No one who’d seen this home in the spring would have believed this transformation possible.
    Bravo all!!

  7. The only rooms that I see in Traditional Home & New England House would be Tony Lyons girls
    bedroom, very sweet. Tony has been in many
    many show houses and deserves the recognitiion.
    He is a true designer.

  8. The house by itself is esquite as is the landscaping. Thought the designers would have
    stayed true to the style of the era with a 2010
    twist. The one room and only room that did not seem out of place was Bartony Design.
    Did love the library if you were Elle Decor, lots of creativity and imagination, not looking like a room
    stuffed with furniture like Bobs Discount.

  9. Love the Shippan Area perfect place for a show house. Kitchen is beautiful but my vote for either magazine would be the little girls room. Wonderful
    color also very sweet

  10. Didn’t Charles Spada design a room for the Shippan house? If so, I’d like to see his room in the magazine.

    • Mr. Spada did not do a room at the show house unfortunately. I adore his work!
