Designer and clients were friends before the redo began and remained good friends after its completion. “Rose Ann is magical in the way she fulfills a client’s design wishes,” says John. Adds Pamela: “Working together was definitely a challenge, because I have very strong views of my own. She was totally responsive to reflecting our personas, using her design experience and knowledge.”

For Rose Ann, the joy of interior design is what she calls “the process of listening closely, then helping people find their visual voices.” In this instance, she even shopped with the couple’s three daughters, individually guiding each to make her own choices.

Testimonial from the Editor:

“It was a pleasure working with you.  These stories always start with a great project, which you surely have there.  What makes it even better is to have someone as thoughtful, cooperative, and organized as you were on “the set” of the shoot. It makes our job so much easier and fun. Throw in the totally hospitable and charming homeowners, and you have a sure recipe for success.  When the team works with the same goal in mind, the end result is exponentially superior!” – Gail Ravgiala, Editor, Design New England

VINTAGE VERMONT: Antique Shopping with Rose Ann Humphrey

Eighteen years ago Rose Ann Humphrey, a New York native, left Boston, where she had been living with her two young children. She soon found herself in Vermont. “I was smitten,” she says. “It was the first place I’d ever been where you could actually sense the well-being that came from clean air and a simple way of life. The combination of the small-town environment and resort excitement made me very determined to stay.”

At the end of a day, Rose Ann Humphrey says, “I’m like Seiji Ozawa, the symphony conductor – if I point to the first violin and he can’t play, I’m in trouble. But fortunately, the dealers I know in Vermont are all accomplished. My clients demand authenticity, and my dealer friends can provide that.”
