Updating a Historic Home: A Look Inside at Client Photos

A welcoming entryway by interior designer Elizabeth Brush Saypol

This classic Connecticut home from the early 19th century was updated with clean lines and fresh, transitional decor by interior designer Elizabeth Brush Saypol. She paired this soft, atmospheric mural with sassy pink pillows — what a fun hello!

We love the way Dana Simpson of Hammertown created an intimate setting with just a few elements in this home from the 1700s. The room has an almost Shaker-like simplicity, yet the mural keeps it from being staid. Can’t you picture a happy family at Thanksgiving at that long, comfortable table?

After studying art at Harvard, Susan got her start doing decorative painting for Boston design legends like William Hodgins and Charles Spada. She spent many enjoyable years painting murals for clients throughout New England. Susan loves creating murals because it combines painting, nature, and making people happy. “It can be a harsh world out there sometimes,” says Susan, “Your home should be a refuge of peace and joy.” When she’s not painting murals, she’s enjoying her new town, the beautiful little Victorian seaport of Port Townsend, WA. She and her small team create the wallpaper in an artist loft overlooking the Salish Sea.
