‘My goal was to make this historic jewel of a home, better than it ever was!’ says Christina Roughan about the exciting redesign of this New York period home, one of the world’s best homes. Built in 1900 by Charles Wetmore, a prominent architect from NYC who was one of the architects responsible for Grand Central Station, it’s a grand English style manor house set in 20 acres of lush gardens, with the original horse stables now converted into a barn. 

When Christina, founder of Roughan Interiors (opens in new tab), first met the clients, she knew it was going to be a rewarding project to work on. ‘I immediately got excited because they had knowledge of design, art and furniture, not to mention they are incredibly kind and fun to be around. We sat down and they showed photos of the house. It was love at first sight,’ says Christina.
