Stiles Colwill, known for his impeccable design work and expert knowledge of antiques, can add another accolade to his resume—creator of the most fabulous new store in Baltimore. On an adjoining property to his family’s storied Halcyon Farms (and in a clear nod to London’s Charlotte Moss), Stiles and partner Jonathan Gargiulo have completely redone an 18th-century farmhouse and turned the whole structure into Halcyon House Antiques, a retail store filled with early 19th-century Baltimore furniture, John Robshaw bedding, Canton-esque Chinese exports, glorious gardening objects (the sunroom seems to draw its inspiration from Jonathan’s aunt, legendary designer Bunny Williams). Pieces from Stiles’ huge personal collection of 1920s and ‘30s Farmers Arms ware as well as 18th- and 19th-century Maryland silver are sold right alongside fun little things like Barbara Eigen ceramics, John Derian decoupage, Agraria soaps and candles, and even miniature chairs for children. For us, the question isn’t when can it all be delivered; it’s when can we move in? Don’t miss: The sheer experience of being in Halcyon House and the gorgeous horse country setting. 11219 Greenspring Ave., 410-828-8889
