Discover Jeannie Perin's Country Estate

Save This Article

We took a home tour of interior designer Jeannie Perin's gorgeous Virginia estate. The perfectly imperfect, “Edgewood” exudes the adventurous and refined spirit of its world traveled designer. With the Blue Ridge Mountains as its backdrop, the estate hosts a beautifully renovated 19th century log cabin at its core, once a “Hunt Box” owned by fox hunting connoisseur Mr. Paul Mellon and acres of wandering formal gardens all planned by Jean herself. We instantly felt we were abroad when setting foot on this breathtaking estate.

The crisp green and white color scheme, structured boxwoods, blooming tulips and countless ornaments found on the designer’s European travels placed throughout the gardens make you feel as if you’ve entered the English or French Countryside.

Less is more, in fashion and home decor.

Although recently modernized with floor to ceiling glass doors and clapboard and field stone additions, the house maintains its country charm, always keeping nature in site and a warm welcoming spirit to visitors old and new.

Because I am so attuned to views from a house to landscape or gardens, I love natural figurative prints : leaves, twigs, birds, flowers.

The rooms at Edgewood flow one to the other but each is distinctive in color tones . There is a mix of flooring materials from room to room: limestone, French tile, painted rough oak.
