In the September issue of Martha Stewart Living, the entertaining feature takes us to the Provincetown retreat of New York store owner and expert in all that is découpage John Derian. Built in 1789, the house has developed a patina that fits right into Derian's aesthetic.
Previously renovated in the 1930s, the home needed some practical renovations, but it's historical essence is still present — Derian stripped some of the 80-year-old wallpaper to show off the horsehair and seashell plaster walls! The home is the perfect space to show off Derian's vintage wares and collection. There is even a branch of his store in the home's carriage house.
Because this was the entertaining feature, there is a full menu that is associated with the story — check it out in the September Martha Stewart Living (not currently online).
