CTC&G (Connecticut Cottages & Gardens) magazine is thrilled to announce the first and only virtually designed room by Decorist in the Connecticut Designer Showhouse on the Green.

CTC&G is the exclusive media sponsor of the Connecticut Designer Showhouse on the Green—a redecoration of the historic St. Paul’s rectory in Fairfield, CT. “In an interesting nod to the myriad ways that designers and consumers shop these days, CTC&G has collaborated with the leading online home design platform Decorist ( to create a room in the showhouse without the designer having set foot in the space” says CTC&G, Editorial Director DJ Carey.

Decorist’s celebrity designer Christina Murphy of Christina Murphy Interiors will design the showhouse library, including the selection of paint colors, furniture, artwork and accessories. Also collaborating on the project is Safavieh Home Furnishings, who will complete the installation and preparation of the room while offering their vast selection of furnishings, which will be chosen online by Murphy.

“The library will receive a stunning virtual transformation designed by Decorist celebrity designer Christina Murphy,” said Gretchen Hansen, CEO and founder of Decorist. “The process is just like the one our customers have when working with Decorist on their own room makeovers.”

“Furniture and accessories in the room were chosen from our exclusive Safavieh Couture Collection, featured in our retail stores and at by Murphy for Decorist.” said Michael Yaraghi, CEO of Safavieh, “This is a real life example of virtual decorating.”

Followers of the project will be able to see furnishings selected over the next few weeks, as the chosen pieces will be revealed in a series of social media releases from CTC&G, Decorist and Safavieh Home Furnishings leading up to the gala opening on September 18th of the Designer Showhouse in Fairfield, CT.

Twenty interior and garden designers will reveal the redecoration of the historic St. Paul’s Rectory at a gala opening on September 18, and the house will be open to the public through October 25. Proceeds from the project benefit St. Paul’s rectory and Operation Hope.
