My uber chic client - in Faribault, MN - population 3000?
I just finished this wonderful home in Faribault, MN. Although their primary home is in Sweden, their sons attend Shattuck-St. Mary's, she serves on the board and, naturally, they enjoy spending time with their sons. Voila! A secondary home in Faribault. I went to take some snapshots today. This was a really wonderful project - there wasn't one piece of furniture or an accessory in the home when we started last fall. We completed it in 6-7 months. She was on a mission, has fabulous taste and a quick mind - all of which made the project fun, fast, and seem to fall in place like magic. It is a wonderful concoction of Baker, Knapp & Tubbs, Holly Hunt, Jon Frost cabinets, vintage, Aubry Angelo rugs including one by Jan Kath and Rose Tarlow hemp for draperies.
To prove her sartorial taste, Bill Cunningham recently stopped her on Madison Avenue in NY (where she spends quite a bit of time) with her little dog, Ted. She was looking incredibly chic and landed in the NY Times a couple of weeks ago in "On the Street". She's on the far right - with Ted.
