Can I live here please?

I was messing around in Messana O'Rorke's portfolio the other day (as you do) and fell in love with this farm cottage and addition (Ten Broeck Cottage). It's a bold but simple juxtaposition of old and new, classic childlike house and believe it or not a trailer home as inspiration. Each building stands alone yet interconnected respecting the other. Simple minimalist lines from the 18th century and the 21st. Stunning.

Lovely pics! I like the white bedroom and bathroom. And the dining room table is awesome!

The kitchen is a little industrial for my taste, but I love the contrasting softness in the bedroom. Beautiful.

I love the big wooden ceiling beams. And I would love to curl up in front of that fire place!

I love that house! It's on a big apple orchard... I've heard they sometimes rent it for weddings...
