The interior design incorporates a color palette of the local seasons – vibrant reds, deep oranges, warm yellows and soothing greens. These warms tones, plush furnishings and soothing amenities dot the interiors, which are used as a showcase for Vermont’s most renowned international artists and artisans, including glassblower Simon Pearce, furniture maker Charles Shackleton, potter Miranda Thomas, artistic woodworker Parker Nichols, blacksmiths from Hubbardton Forge and several local painters, all of which enjoy a global following.
