Interiors: Collaborative Design

Photo: Michael J. Lee for New England Home

The current issue of New England Home features the work of Amy Meier Design in the Rockport home of Abby Cahill O’Brien. Amy & Abby have been friends forever, and when you see them together they come across as a collective Superpower of beauty and taste. It would be intimidating if they weren’t both so nice.

From my perspective as the purveyor of The Roving Home, I was excited to see my old shop counter featured in one of the lovely photographs taken for the article. Abby bought it when I no longer needed it, having closed the store in Rockport. It has been really nice for me to see such a beloved piece live on in her historic home. The counter was even crowned with a new, thick piece of marble that suits it so much better than the simple pieces of glass I placed on the top when it was in my store. And I love the look of the whole dining area, particularly the fact that the interior trim of the windows is painted black; it frames them in such a modern, yet thoroughly traditional way. The whole house is like this: a successful blend of old and new, which works for me as this approach is a particular obsession of mine.

Let’s hear if for good design and friendship — both of which sometimes seem in short supply these days!

  1. A great post about a lovely home on a wonderful Rockport property. I’ve always been intrigued by Rockport Lodge and it’s great to see this beautiful transformation. Thanks!
