Wish We Were Here: Inn at Hastings Park

While some lucky people are kicking off their spring breaks, lots of us are begrudgingly stuck at the office on this gorgeous day. So I thought I'd give you Lonnytics a visual treat that's also a bit of a history lesson.

Anyone remember a little thing called the American Revolution? In this week's installment of Monday Design Daydream, we're traveling to Lexington, Massachusetts—where the first battle in our fight for independence broke out—and the Inn at Hastings Park.

A short walk from the battle green, the inn occupies three 19th-century historic buildings: the 1888 Main House, which holds the hotel's restaurant and central living room; the Isaac Mulliken house, named after the politician who lived there in the mid-1800s; and the Barn, a former casket factory that now looks anything but thanks to Lexington designer Robin Gannon of Robin Gannon Interiors.

Each of the 22 guest rooms features preppy palettes such as lavender and chocolate, citron and cobalt, and peach and putty, plus hits of classic patterns (houndstooth, chevron, damask) for a fresh take on trad style.

But while each room is a unique assortment of furniture and styles, they all share a focus on New England craftsmanship, from the Sister Parish Design and Peter Fasano wallpapers to the Dunes and Duchess candelabras and sconces. Our friends at Rhode Island-based O&G Studio are behind the wood furniture; beds are topped with throw blankets loomed in Maine. If I were going to drop in tomorrow, I'd stay at one of the three suites in the Barn, with their patriotic red-white-and-blue color schemes. My seventh grade history teacher would be proud.
