Stately New Canaan East Coast Remodel by Garrison Hullinger Interior Design


A sophisticated, sprawling West Coast home with fantastic areas for entertaining.

Stately exterior with beautiful landscaping.

Welcome to our gallery featuring another fantastic home by Garrison Hullinger Interior Design.

Looking at the exterior, a sense of awe and wonder at the sprawling, stately Portland home strikes the viewer.

The home doesn’t just look enormous, it has spacious, open rooms, including bars, great rooms, a study,  a mudroom, and many other gorgeous and functional amenities that make this home a one of a kind space perfect for family life and entertaining.

Garrison Hullinger Interior Design had previously designed the interior of the owner’s vacation home, so when it came time to redesign their cramped, dark, and non-functional family home, the owners paired their favorite award-winning architect with their favorite designers to create a spacious, fully-functional, modernized home that’s full of light and sophistication.

The resulting interior design has a feel of being “grown up” without having rooms that are too clinical and pristine.

As it is a family home, Garrison Hullinger Interior Design selected fabrics and materials that would both look great and stand up to the wear and tear of a growing family. Warm tones throughout the home’s rooms lend an inviting air to the space.

We hope you’ll enjoy this fantastic, sprawling family home on the west coast!

The entrance to the family home has beautiful wide plank wood floors and a gently curving staircase with light carpet treads. Wainscoting along the walls adds a subtle sense of sophistication. A small settee near the entrance is perfect for removing shoes. French doors lead directly to the back courtyard.

Nearest the door is the formal living room, which is in soft, warm beige. On the far wall are two aged leather armchairs. A large vase of bright pink tulips grace the coffee table, which also has a faux crocodile-skin textured tray on the top. Another set of French doors lead out to the courtyard.

The cavernous kitchen is in a beautiful white that contrasts with the wide plank dark hardwood floors. Long chrome handles complement the stainless steel high-end appliances. The enormous marble-topped kitchen island has an eat-in bar for four.
