Fiona Newell Weeks


Designer Fiona Newell Weeks house on the Eastern Shore's Tred Avon River is one of the features in The Washington Post Magazine's semiannual Home & Design issue. (article by Jill Hudson Neal, photography by Darko Zagar) Click here for the slide show, featuring a number of rooms shots not shown in the print article

Below is the same living room, featured in 2007 in Southern Accents.

Here is the sunroom featured in Sunday's Washington Post Magazine. The ottoman is covered in a pink silk sari.
Check out an earlier incarnation of the room below - featuring a white, wood coffee table and sans zebra stripes and dogs.

Four years ago, Fiona and her family relocated from the D.C. area. She has opened a store, Dwelling & Design in Easton MD. Must add this to my list of places to visit.


However, if you can't make it over to Easton - enjoy this beautiful print by artist Anne Harwell. Inspired by a Week's interior design, this is a gorgeous rendering originally done for and named after Anne's grandmother, Lula Harwell, on her 88th birthday. It is available as a 8x10 print on premium, heavyweight quality archival paper, signed and dated on back by artist (or on canvas by request)
Also, if you haven't already, check out her blog, Annechovie.

Perfectly wonderful images to peruse as an ending to my weekend. I love the name of her store too!

I checked out your post because I thought perhaps you were living in London. I used to live in Notting Hill many years ago. It seems you like the style anyway. It was also funny to see the photo of the tree from St. John. Is it the one near Annaberg?

Just started my monday by looking at the slideshow. What a great house! Oh, the zebra print ottoman, I'm drooling.

I bought the Post specifically to see this section. I loved Annie Groer's article on the house paints.

Your home is precious! The store looks fabulous... too bad I live so far away.

I remember that house! I love it. It's fun to see the two different takes on the family room. It lloks like the zebra chair is also in her shop? Fun post.:)

And George is so interesting, thanks for the great pics. Have you seen the spread on the owners' home in Southern Accents? I might have to track it down for you if you haven't ...
