Celebration with a View

After much searching, Diederick and Amy van der Velde found the home of their dreams in Stonington, Connecticut. The house was in good shape, but the couple knew they could make it shine with some changes. They commissioned builder Stephen L. Johnson and designer Dru Adams to transform the home, including knocking down walls to create one large, open living space, complete with new panoramic windows. “I love to perch in the sitting room and look out over the water,” says Amy.

Get the look: The sofas are from Antiques and Interiors, and the rug is from Dash & Albert.
