Another UXUS project

The folks over at UXUS (an interiors and architecture firm based in Amsterdam that we have blogged about previously here and here) emailed us Friday with one of their latest residential projects. Here is a little bit of background info: The Wilton Residence is a 1930’s hunting lodge located in the historical heart of Connecticut. The home belongs to an American family, who after living in Europe for 13 years returned to the US. The interior is a reflection of their years living abroad with an eclectic mix of high European contemporary design, personal mementos and a classic American style. UXUS wanted to create an invigorating energy by fusing a pioneering spirit with the inherent comfort of effortless style – colonial yet innovative. Inspired by Rustic Luxury and essential beauty found in simple things, every space within the Wilton Residence exudes openness, personality and playful sophistication. I LOVE this home...the mostly neutral colour palette (including lots of white), the modern furnishings that are a great juxtaposition to the exterior, the references to the outdoors through the dining chairs and wallpapers - love the Piet Hein Eek one in the bedroom!!

What a cool house! I love the stacked single file bookshelves...they almost look like support beams.

Can anyone advise where the Penguin Classic Book artwork - 'The Me I Never Knew' - is from or who it is by or where I can buy this (or similar) from please? I'd be very grateful. And STUNNING home. Really really well done, beautiful.

I love the openness and light - beautiful! And, like Heather, I couldn't help but notice the stacks of books.

The orange chair at the desk looks like it is floating in space. Very cool house.

What a PERSONAL house, stylish, confortable and idiosyncratic. What happens if you want to read a book in the middle of the stack? Are they skewered in?

The European influences are pleasantly prevalent; The mix of old and new, whites, stone and wood with pops of color. Very warm, fresh-feeling and individual home.

I'd like to know where to get the poster from too, if anybody knows. Love the white beams and white floors .... such a simple backdrop to texture, outlooks and carefully considered colour

this home is amazing! i love the mix of styles staying in a gray and white pallet with those pops of orange. the mix of white moldings in some rooms and gray in others makes it feel warm and interesting. it really is a dream home!

Harland MIller is the painter. There are 14 Penguin inspired paintings on artnet.com/artists/harland-miller/
I know this because I have no life at the moment and googled it for you all.
You're welcome!

@Michale the light is a Flos Skygarden. And I imagine the bookcase has very thin shelves on it which allow you to access books. Some really nice stuff here. Well done.
