“I always say that Hazeldean found us, we didn’t find Hazeldean,” says Kyle Timothy Blood of the picturesque Prince Edward Island farmhouse he now calls home. For the Maine-born NYC designer and his husband, acupuncturist Dean Perry, it was after several trips to Canada’s East Coast in search of a summer residence when they realized a certain late-Victorian farmhouse with a rich history was calling their names — and not just for part of the year.
Kyle (right) has always loved decorating his clients’ vacation homes in the Hamptons and Cape Cod, so it’s no surprise he’d be drawn to P.E.I., too. “When we first vacationed here, I was struck by the expansiveness of the sky, the quality of light and the briny sea air,” says Kyle. Moving here in 2018 full time with their dogs Tucker and Luca in tow was a natural next step. Kyle opened a design studio in Charlottetown to complement his American business in East Hampton, N.Y., and he now works with clients on both sides of the border.
