One of the great projects that we have been involved with this year was the Bridges House in Concord NH. I was delighted to be one of 18 designers selected from across New Hampshire to help revitalize this history property.
Downstairs, the original dining room, now called the Garden Dining Room, was designed by Ann Henderson of Ann Henderson Interiors in Keene. For this room, she chose a Hepplewhite mahogany sideboard and historic White House china from the Bridges’ collection. She also mixed slipcovered pieces from the Bridges’ furnishings with her own choices, limiting what she called the “serious antiques” to create an updated yet still traditional room. She replaced the existing pedestal table with a smaller round one that would provide more openness and flexibility, and covered it in new fabrics in hues from nature: blue, brown, white and orange-red.
