|Bringing Back Holleywood
Meeting today with contractor and designer to discuss placement of kitchen appliances and choices for tile and bathroom fixtures. The designer, Chris Brennan, is especially taken with a patch of faux marble beneath paint in the center hallway. She imagines the walls were faux finished after someone made the Grand Tour and, impressed by marble walls in Italy, decided to import the fashion to this Italianate home.
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten. The info on this site is earnestly cobbled from a variety of sources, including the web. Please let us know if we've gotten something wrong, or if there's a story about Holleywood you'd like to share.
