Tassel Studio, Old Lyme
Published: 07/25/2012 by
Like most of us, ultimately I heeded many of my mother’s pearls of wisdom, one of which was: paint your walls white, as a clean canvas for your art. While I ignored some advice (never show your gums when smiling), this one I embraced. My husband occasionally complains that he feels like he’s living in a hotel, but I do like mainly neutral colors around me. Or at least I thought so until I walked into Tassel. This new destination for Hannah Childs Interior Design is exuberantly colorful. You’ll find a bright selection of lighting, rugs, pillows and discounted fabrics by the yard, all in vivid prints and graphic patterns. Have to say, I loved all of it, and any of her home accessories would live quite happily against my white walls. Open Tuesday thru Thursday, 11 - 4 (or by appointment), hidden at 2 Huntley Road (behind Halls Road) in Old Lyme.
