Bringing a Family’s Backcountry Dream Home to Life with Tyler Tinsworth

Nestled high in the quaint backcountry of Greenwich, Connecticut is a grand stone house with sweeping views of Long Island Sound and exceedingly unique details from floor to wall to ceiling. A two-year interior design project by Tyler Tinsworth embedded the spirit of creativity and accommodation using custom fabrics, furniture, lighting and artwork.

“The house is a culmination of wonderful family spaces, large entertaining areas and over-the-top athletic facilities,” Tinsworth explains. “It was my job to interpret the client’s wishes for how he wanted his house to speak to guests and for how he wanted his house to embrace his family.”

Tinsworth describes the design philosophy for this hilltop home as “a classical balance intertwined with youth, wit and levity.” A talented and dedicated photographer, the client chose to use his own photography as the only art in the house. Tinsworth and Duggal Visual Solutions collaborated to curate a collection of images produced on Plexiglass, metal and illuminated displays in various areas of the home, including the living room and indoor pool.

“The beauty and personality of a stately, yet playful home is exponentially increased with the client’s own photography,” Tinsworth said. “It humanizes and personalizes the impact of artwork in personal space.”
