Subtle Patterns, Textures Create Serene Setting in Master Retreat

Subtle patterns and textures are the stars in the retreat-like neutral master bedroom at a Connecticut estate home. The watercolor-style lines of the focal wall offer the serene feel of either the desert or the beach, and the wall's tones are echoed in the finishes and fabrics throughout the space.

Soft Gray Nightstand, Metallic Lamp Pop Against Serene Color Pattern

The lines and hues on the accent wall set the tone for this soothing bedroom space. The organic texture of the wall is echoed in the soft, velvety rug and throw on the bed, while the soft colors are echoed in the furnishings. A dark gray nightstand and coppery table lamp pop against their surroundings without disturbing the serenity.

Elegant Sitting Area Enjoys Abundance of Light Streaming Through Windows

An elegant sitting area offers a comfortable retreat area in the master bedroom at a Connecticut estate. A plush gray sofa creates a place to enjoy abundant daylight streaming through the picture windows and round transom windows above. The lucite table provides a place for a cup of coffee or book without adding visual weight to the serene space.

Master Bath Features Geode Print Curtains, Orb Pendant Light, Silvery Tub

Geode print curtains tie together the neutral tones of the walls with the polished finishes of the pendant light, silvery tub and marble tile flooring in this elegant master bathroom.

Pendant Lights, Tile Pattern Add Softness in Master Bathroom

Towels stored on open shelving, a chrome orb pendant light and a circular marble tile pattern add softness in this elegant master bathroom.

Master Bathroom Features Marble Floor With Intricate Tile Pattern

A marble floor gets a modern twist with an intricate tiling pattern in this master suite bathroom. The rest of the decor is kept simple and understated to allow the floor to receive it's due attention.

Luxe Textures Create Boutique Feel in Master Closet

Luxe textures create the feel of a boutique in the master closet at this Connecticut countryside estate. Pieces of cowhide are stitched together for an updated take on an animal-print rug, while a shiny brass chandelier shade offers a little sparkle. Specialty shelving and drawers handle the functionality side of things with elegance.

Family Room is Filled With Natural Light Thanks to Wall of Windows

An expansive wall of windows floods this family room with warm light, making this one of the most inviting rooms in the entire countryside estate. The light helps balance the heavier look of the exposed beam ceiling and dark cabinetry on the far wall.

Foyer Features Marble, Wood Laid in Chevron Pattern

This foyer features a mix of marble and wood laid in a chevron pattern and contemporary French doors which offer a modern twist on this traditional-inspired countryside estate. The doorway leads to a casual dining space where guests will feel right at home.

Casual Dining Area With Storage

A casual dining area located at one end of a great room offers a spot for relaxed family dinners, games or crafts with plenty of storage at hand. A midcentury-inspired chandelier adds modern balance to the more rustic nature of the exposed ceiling beams and dark wood cabinetry.

Home's Traditional Dining Room Offers Unfussy, Contemporary Design

Though a formal dining room, this space is kept unfussy with contemporary decor choices by designer Amy Zolin. An organic wallcovering adds unexpected texture to the space, and the pattern is echoed in the home's master bedroom. A table with clean lines includes exposed butterfly joints for extra visual appeal.

Countryside Estate Kitchen is Adorned With Earthy Blue, Green Backsplash

A mix of earthy blues and greens offers an unexpected twist to the traditional tile backsplash in this countryside estate kitchen. A pot rack hanging above the island turns the homeowners' beautiful copper pots into a beautiful display.

Kitchen Features Interior Windows to Allow Natural Light Into Heart of Home

To allow natural light to travel into the interior spaces of this Connecticut escape, the architect and designer outfitted the kitchen with interior windows. The black trim and simple design offer a contemporary contrast to the more traditional timbers and backsplash.

Game Room Includes Purple Pool Table for Family of Seven to Enjoy

A game room provides a fun hangout space for the homeowners' five children, whose ages vary between 2 and 15 years old. A purple-topped pool table adds a custom look to the space. A simple bar-height counter creates room for crafts and games and a window seat provides a space to curl up quietly with a book.

Connecticut Estate Home Located on 50-Acre Property

This estate home is located on a 50-acre countryside property in Connecticut. An abundance of windows in the home offer panoramic views of the estate's pastoral setting.

Expansive Windows Offer Panoramic Views of Countryside at Connecticut Estate

Expansive windows provide panoramic views of the Connecticut countryside at this estate home designed by Andrew Bartolotta. Designer Amy Zolin drew the neutral palette of the home's exterior into her interior designs and embraced the laid-back setting with a look that was less fussy and formal than a home in the city.
