For interior designers and home-entertainers alike, the Juliska luxury tableware and home brand represents a relaxed yet refined elegance.
Introduced by David and Capucine Gooding in 2001, Juliska’s ever-evolving collection of elegant European-inspired tableware and accessories reflects the couple’s appreciation for historical design blended with just the right touch of whimsy.
Which is instantly apparent in the Gooding’s New Canaan, Connecticut home. Seemingly plucked from the rolling hills of England, this spectacular whitewashed brick English Country residence is the architectural embodiment of the couple’s mantra, “the joy of gathering together.”
As a family who celebrates living together, David and Capucine were immediately drawn to the home’s unique character and intimate scale. Built in 1929, the home features architectural details and thoughtful spaces inherently designed for entertaining that simply cannot be found in a modern home.
“As a European brand, Juliska fits beautifully in this unique home which has so many perfectly imperfect elements that give a home personality and character,” says Juliska co-founder David Gooding.
Take the enchanting vaulted and beamed Great Room. An arched beamed balcony overlooks the spectacular space, which is anchored by the original soaring stone fireplace. The Great Room is the heart of this home serving as a warm, welcoming space for friends and family to come together and create memories.
“In the winter we often entertain in the great room with a roaring fire,” says David. “And the dining room offers a wonderful intimate setting, enhanced by the beamed ceiling, which encourages intimate conversation as guests feel so comfortable.”
The home enjoys a casual chic, yet creative vibe epitomizing the Juliska brand DNA.
From the gourmet kitchen to the brand new outdoor entertainment area complete with a Glen Gate designed pool and an expansive garden, the home and surrounding grounds are a superb place to entertain.
“In the summer we are all outside on the amazing patio surrounded by the gorgeous greenery. We have a concrete ping-pong table that doubles as a large dining table perfect for dinner parties. Or for more casual evenings, we eat around the circular fire pit table.”
Beyond the outdoor amenities, the home’s incomparable location was an immediate draw for the Gooding family.
Sited on one of New Canaan’s most coveted walk-to-town cul-de-sacs, the home sits on 2.79 fabulous acres with rolling lawns, terraces, and Connecticut’s signature stone walls. But most remarkable is the privacy afforded by 42 acres of the New Canaan Nature Center directly adjacent to the property on two sides.
“We love that the property adjoins the nature center, making it feel as though we have 40 acres of land,” says David. “We love the meandering driveway entrance, the circular driveway, and the way the house sits comfortably on the private property. We love that our family can safely walk or cycle on our street or into town.”
In the spirit of Juliska brand’s mantra, this home is the perfect place in which to create life’s magical moments.
