Greenwich, Connecticut: land of cable-knit sweaters, triple-strand pearl necklaces, country clubs, and McMansions. Excuse the hyperbole, but we don't exactly equate the tony NYC suburb with fashion-forwardness. So, imagine R29's surprise when our day trip to the bastion of prep took us not to Blair Waldorf's aunt's estate, but instead, to a sun-drenched and color-filled pad that's more boho glam than Brunschwig & Fils.
Not that we should be shocked — the home in question belongs to none other than Amy Smilovic, the designer and founder of R29-obsession, Tibi
. Because we're just as enamored as you are with the brand's sweetly edgy aesthetic (it makes sense, promise), we hit up Smilovic for an exclusive tour of her CT casa, plus a big serving of her inspiring style, home decor tips, and fall dressing ideas. No pastel, cashmere, over-the-shoulder cable-knits in sight.
Check out a Greenwich mansion so chic we want to move in.
: Oh, and if our slideshow has you jonesing Smilovic's singular style, you can show her closet RIGHT NOW on R29 Shops
