Yachting burgees from the George Glazer Gallery.

In the entry to Capellini's waterfront vacation home, framed vintage burgees are from the George Glazer Gallery.

Items from the George Glazer Gallery were featured in an article in Connecticut Cottages & Gardens about interior designer Jane Capellini's selections for her own waterfront vacation home. Among the photographs is one of three vintage burgees — yacht club flags — whose bold geometric designs decorate the entry. Capellini played up the setting of her riverside cottage by incorporating nautical items and colors. She explained her design choices in the accompanying article:

"When it came time for furnishings, the designer opted for a casual, breezy vibe. “It’s a weekend home,” she says. “I have two daughters and I wanted it to be very comfortable, and a bit bohemian.” The living room chairs and sofa are slipcovered, and the chairs are topped with throw pillows made of embroidered Italian linen; the dining room chairs are French wicker. A framed trio of vintage yachting burgees graces the entry, and a pair of Victorian-era oars hangs in a downstairs bedroom."
