Homeowners with a penchant for French Country interior design and décor can breathe a collective sigh of relief as renowned interior designer Rose Ann Humphrey recently re-established her business – Home Life by Rose Ann Humphrey – in Boston. The former owner of the only independently owned Pierre Deux shop in the U.S., in Manchester, Vermont, Ms. Humphrey is considered the utmost authority of this genre.   

Ms. Humphreystarted her interior design business in Back Bay Boston before moving to Vermont, where she quickly established herself as one of the area’s most creative talents.  As sole proprietor of  the Pierre Deux shop for over 20 years, Ms. Humphrey not only offered  interior design services but French fabrics, furniture, lighting, rugs, wall art, gifts and accessories.  Now with the closing of the Pierre Deux Company and the Pierre Deux shop on Newbury Street, Ms. Humphrey is sought out for her expertise in this “style de Provence” and for her ability to source French Country fabrics and accessories, as well as for simple and elegant interior design.  

“I’ve always worked with the philosophy of helping clients find their own visual voices,” states Ms. Humphrey. “Those who love French Country are inspired by the colors and textures of the French countryside, with a respect for tradition, simplicity and natural materials. I work with clients to translate those feelings and needs to create a home that expresses them, supports them and enables them to live in their dreams. Living and working in Vermont made this “style de Provence” appropriate for our clients. Country Lifestyle is similar no matter where you are. For our clients it was a choice.”  

In 2011, Ms. Humphrey was selected as a lead interior designer for the New England Living Show House project and she recreated the “Presidential Suite” at the Juniper Hill Inn in Windsor, VT. Additionally, she has been featured in Architectural Digest, New England Home, the Boston Globe and Women’s Wear Daily among other publications.
