As Spring approaches (it’s actually pretty far from approaching but it makes me feel better to say it), one might have their mind on weekend escapes in a quaint little cottage out in the green countryside.

This stunning house belongs to interiors and garden designer Michael Trapp. It is his private residence in Cornwall Connecticut.

We should start with the garden…
