Joyann King’s Dream Home in Harper’s Bazaar Editorial – A blistering summer day six months later proved to be the end of the honeymoon, both for our relationship and our new home. I cried hysterically on move-in day when we discovered that not only was there no internet in the house, but it was also impossible to run the cables up the mile-long driveway. As the digital editor of Harper’s Bazaar, being offline was career suicide. How did we not think to ask about the Wi-Fi? Country houses, it seems, suffer no fools.
My obsessive interest in interiors and passion for fashion was also sorely outmatched by a complete lack of home-improvement experience—a liability in renovating 7,000 square feet of historic architecture.
My 13 years as a fashion editor should have prepared me to carefully, meticulously, and tastefully curate a home. But my Pinterest boards were all over the place. Was my vibe rustic, modern, traditional, eclectic, or bohemian? Was my preference for all white or all color? I loved both. I needed help. Not to mention: My husband. Had. Opinions. He works in mergers and acquisitions; I was up against a professional.
Gregory Shano, a former Gap executive turned interior designer at Steven Gambrel’s firm, swept in to the rescue. He helped me focus on room layouts, eschewing trends for furniture and fabrics that would last. He was also a huge supporter of my growing wallpaper habit. Shano really should have charged us for couples’ therapy as I pushed my husband to take design risks while he urged me to prioritize comfort. We ended up doing a little bit of both.
