How would you define Westport style? Give it a try. It’s harder than you might think. Luckily, we have home-design pros in town who spend each day doing just that as they select home furnishings that speak to their local clients. It’s their passion to dig through the endless selection of chairs, pillows, mirrors, tables, artwork, rugs and everything else that turns a house into an authentic Westport home. Read on for their picks of vignettes and specific finds that suit our community.

SEASIDE CHIC
“The coastal landscape and artistic roots of Westport bring a relaxed, beachy vibe to the polished Fairfield County aesthetic,” says Nancy Galasso, senior designer. “When designing for Westport families, it’s all about lifestyle and the Lillian August philosophy to Love How You Live. For this home [above], for an active family of five, we brought in bling elements, like the fun chandelier, and softened the look with slipcovered chairs in the client’s favorite blue, evoking the serene Westport waters and sky. This is a place to come together comfortably and in style—that’s what Westport is all about.”

PREPPY LOVE
“A staple of coastal style, seersucker has an airy quality and puckered texture we love,” says Lydia Cullen, PR and trade manager. “Our Westport bedding collection is preppy meets romantic for a look that will never go out of style.”

PASSIONS
“Westport clients know what makes them happy, and they want that reflected in their homes,” says owner Sarah Weiland. “When you really listen to your client, you can find ways to incorporate what they love in life, whether that is their travels, art or family. The unique style of each client is the basis for the design, and the personal details are what makes it theirs.”

INDIVIDUALITY
“Luckily for me as a designer, I have found that Westport clients are a largely creative bunch,” says Susan Anderson, owner. “Not only do they desire comfortable and livable designs, but also a bit of personalization. They don’t want their homes to look like the neighbors’ houses. Everyone has their own journey and one’s home should be a reflection of the family that lives there.”

ARTISTIC TOUCH
“Bungalow respects Westport’s history as an artists’ colony. It features local Westport and Fairfield County female artists,” says Wende Cohen, owner. “Bungalow curates works by resident painters, jewelers, photographers and potters. We believe the spirit of these artists best bridges the gap between Westport history and our town’s creative environment. This is an important part of Bungalow’s offerings to the community.”
