I was scrolling through Pinterest the other day and stumbled upon the gorgeous New Jersey home of interior designer Janet Simon, Hidden Pond Farm. Let’s be honest, when most of us think of New Jersey, sweeping countryside and gorgeous neo-Georgian estates aren’t usually what come to mind. However, Hidden Pond Farm, built in the late 1920s, is reminiscent of something out of The Great Gatsby and the interiors possess an equal amount of grandeur.
Simon decorated much of the home in the quintessential Dorothy Draper style from the 1930s with plenty of medallion rugs, bold pattern play, lavish window treatments, and plenty of chintz. It is impossible not to think of The Greenbrier when you see the formal breakfast room, sunroom, and bedrooms. Other rooms in the home are more modern to accommodate family friendly living but each room is a treat with lovely wall coverings and thoughtfully composed details. Happy Wednesday!
P.S. The history of the this home is fascinating and it was originally built the personal counsel to John D. Rockefeller Jr. To learn more, you can read the original article from Traditional Home, here.
Simons believes that “living with beauty and comfort is essential to living well” and I could not agree more. Thank you for stopping by!
