A Collection of Companions

The guestroom features a Donald Judd—inspired daybed that McNeil designed and made with help from her architect friend Christopher Betjemann
III, and an antique linen press from a shop in Wells. When McNeil first laid eyes on the painting of the girl in the Fairfield Antique Mall, she mistakenly thought she had found a Balthus. “This sullen adolescent is my pal on the dark days,” she says. “I respond to her expression, her body language, the distressed nature of the canvas, unwrapping from its stretcher. I left it just as it was. I’m not so sure my guests like snoozing with it however.”
