Elle Decor features a great spread on Remodelista founder Francesca Connolly’s Montague Terrace home:
Elle Decor: When it came time for Francesca Connolly to design the interior of the Brooklyn brownstone she shares with her husband and three children, she didn’t think twice about hiring out the job. Which wouldn’t be all that unusual if she weren’t one of the most sophisticated design voices of the decade. As a founder of Remodelista, the mother of all home-renovation websites, known for its exquisite curation of everything from door hinges and drawer pulls to sectional sofas and side tables, Connolly is endowed with serious design cred.
So why would she tap architect Steven Harris and interior designer Lucien Rees Roberts for the project? Harris puts it best: “We work with a variety of people, many of whom are quite naïve, others who are extraordinarily sophisticated, like Francesca—and, in her case, the collaboration was very fruitful,” he says. “She has a gift for bringing out the very best in the people who work with her.”
