rustic retreat

Located upstate New York in Dutchess County, this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home was built in 1990, but the exterior gives the appearance that it was built a century prior. The house has vintage charm without the vintage upkeep, but called for many cosmetic touches throughout. We painted every surface, bleached the pine floors, and renovated the kitchen high-gloss black, and the bathrooms were rejuvenated with simple, classic subway tiles lined with black grout.

The décor is an array of contemporary furnishings, abstract artwork, and sculptural lighting: moss-green velvet painting courtesy of Julian Chichester, vintage Adrian Pearsall lamps, pony skin rugs, and great finds in local upstate New York and Connecticut antique stores. I like mixing the comfortable and casual with more provocative pieces, which brings life to any home.
