ontinuity. It might not be the first thing you think about when you enter a house, but if there are no touchstones to draw your eye to, chances are you’ll notice.

Of the myriad ways to make that connection — repeating wood finishes or establishing a geographical thread among them — the most obvious is color. The latter is the path designer Brittany Bromley chose for the makeover of a 1860s farmhouse in Bedford, New York.

“Many of the rooms on the first floor open with very high and wide doorways on to one another so the color palette we chose throughout needed to make sense as it’s visible everywhere,” says Bromley who chose powder blues, quiet creams and muted raspberries to make the connections. “The homeowners are a young couple with small children who come here to escape the rigors of city life and these colors establish a feel of casual elegance.”

In the master suite Bromley lightened the pastels even further with the palest of celadons on the walls combined with whispers of pink, coral and cream on the furnishings and window coverings.

“The hues suffuse the room with a calming energy,” she says. “The whole house is retreat from the city but their bedroom is a tranquil escape from hectic family life.”
