Inside an Art-Filled Family Home in Connecticut
When it's time to decorate your home, just deciding on the furniture, color scheme, and detailing is stressful enough, so what if you have to factor kids into that equation too? This is the quandary designer Mark Cunningham faced when he tailored a stunning Connecticut estate for model Hana Soukupová; her husband, entrepreneur Drew Aaron; and their young children. The end result is a highly personal, ultra-stylish family home with an extensive collection of contemporary art by some of the greats, including Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. From the outset, it's hard to see the kid-friendly elements—the space is just that beautiful—but they're sneakily hidden from view. "Some of the rooms might not look kid-friendly, but we actually used fabrics designed to survive spills," Soukupová told Architectural Digest. This is definitely where we want to grow up.
