One of the most iconic homes in all of Connecticut—the Governor’s Mansion – was given a chic upgrade and S. B. Long Interiors is proud to be a part of the project. Partnering with the Governor’s Residence Conservatory, Connecticut Cottages & Gardens has helped lead the restoration, also called “The People’s Project” since the property is owned by the state of Connecticut and therefore for the people of the state.
Sue was selected to design the Living Room in the Mansion, which is especially fitting as she grew up in Connecticut and opened the doors of S. B. Long Interiors here in Greenwich. Although the design details of The People’s Project are still hush-hush, Sue attended a cocktail reception at the mansion with her esteemed fellow designers:
