The English Country House at Denbigh Farm
Furnished and decorated by Susie Hilfiger, the interior at Denbigh Farm mirrors the pristine Connecticut countryside in which it is set. Tradition and history are felt throughout the grounds and within the home as Ms. Hilfiger’s interior design prowess and keen collector’s eye ties together a timeless mix of furniture, faded chintz, and brilliantly painted walls. Charming packs of Staffordshire Spaniels and stately George III furnishings are complemented by Colefax & Fowler upholstery and window treatments, evoking the pattern-on-pattern spirit that epitomizes the English Country House aesthetic. A pathway of black-and-white checkered floors in the vintage kitchen carries one through to the butler’s pantry; tiers of porcelain hens sit patiently on shelves amongst luminous copper batterie de cuisine, details that reiterate the effortless appeal of Denbigh Farm. The English Country House style is easily felt in the understated, luxurious, and uncompromising taste of Ms. Hilfiger. The curved walls leading up a spiral staircase are adorned with a collection of English needlework samplers. Ornithological bird illustrations, Sporting Art, portrait paintings, and classic blue-and-white Delft plates are found on various floors of the home. Rows of leather riding boots, both in the entrance hall and in the plaid-papered mudroom, suggest that a brisk outing through the bucolic estate can happen at a moment’s notice. This inviting interior highlights Susie Hilfiger’s sense of style and her ability to bring together American and European collecting traditions, creating the personal and bespoke interiors that define Denbigh Farm.
