This beautiful home is in Sag Harbor, New York. I have been looking at a lot of shops etc from this area..this house was a treat to find…..it’s a new build!
Inside could have been designed centuries ago. All the details would suggest to the disconcerting eye, that this home was a Castle in another life time. The iron Napoleon Bed is re used as the sofa and the vintage limestone fireplace cosies up to that stunningly simple cupboard.
The beaded board used here softens this formal staircase and gives it a sense of home, a well loved home. Viera, this is another for your Stair case collection.
I just adore this Kitchen. It is photos like these that make me want that white Kitchen. I am still debating on the French Grey or white (sample pots I think). I love the recessed panelling above the range, and the use of wood pieces, black bench tops and vintage hardware. Very welcoming. I could make gingerbread men in here for sure.
This stunning chair (a favourite style of mine) has been left with the hessian on it and the owner has purposely left it uncovered for some texture along with the fabric inside the cupboards. We actually have alcoves on either sides of our fireplaces and, Mic if you are reading this, we could so do this!
An antique clothes rack looks the part in the Master bedroom, along with the hat box and steamer trunk. I still can’t get over that this is a new build.
What a lovely view. The tiles are salvaged Terracotta. Everything here has been thought of carefully, lighting, shutters, plumbing, sink…even the upholstered chair are all items that have been collected and scoured to give this home its beautiful look.
A little touch of whimsy with the child’s camp chair and over sized scissors.
French File folders look like vintage linen and look fabulous on top of the vintage cupboard.
ahhh! The mannequin. I still have not found one..my search will never end! This just goes to show that new doesn’t have to mean heartless. You can still create a masterpiece with just a few individual and quirky pieces that need not cost the earth. Look around your own home and see what other items you can put to use somewhere unexpected.
I will say it again, but for a new home, it stands the test of time..I can’t believe it still!!
