DESIGNER FRIDAY: BRADLEY STEPHENS
Bradley Stephens began his career with a bang; one of his first commissions was an interior design commission for anchorman Anderson Cooper’s penthouse. Since opening his own Manhattan firm in 2003, Stephens has contributed fifteen years of newsworthy interiors from seaside Maine hotels to sophisticated high-rises on Central Park West.”
LITCHFIELD'S MOST INFLUENTIAL
"Bradley Stephens has a country home, Rockwater, in New Preston, which is a testament to his extraordinary talent. Since establishing his own interior-design firm in 2003, he has created many high-profile interiors and has become one of the most sought-after designers in the business. He is the sole designer of every project and is able to combine artisan finishes and high-end craftsmanship with a sense of tasteful lived-in luxury."

NEW YORK SPACES MAGAZINE
“Stephens set to work stripping away the darkness, trading layers of somber paint for white Venetian plaster walls and ebonized floors. Piece by piece, they reintroduced things that held personal significance. They put down new roots without destroying the old. They made it a home.”
HAMPTON DESIGNER SHOWHOUSE 2013
“Bradley Stephens drew the club-like palette of the master sitting room from the natural tones of the seaside. Grass cloth wallcoverings, a chevron-patterned ceiling, and a seagrass rug evoke the timeworn, gray-brown tones of driftwood and weathered shingles, providing a backdrop that welcomes a mix of modern furniture forms.”
