The decoupage artist and retailer's Provincetown, Massachusetts home lets its history show.
Is it possible to have a crush on someone's house? If so, I must confess to being hopelessly in love with John Derian's home. Ever since we had our first glimpse into Mr. Derian's interior world in a feature of his home in ELLE Decor in 2006, we've been admiring his style from afar.
Several years back, Derian expanded beyond his New York City apartment and purchased an 18th century home in Provincetown, Massachusetts. It hadn't been renovated in decades. While many would have gutted the old house, Derian left much of what he found unchanged, and it's served as a perfect backdrop for his timeless designs and eclectic collection of antique furnishings. We caught up with Derian and asked him to tell us about this handsome home.
