Back in June '14 Jo featured the really beautiful Hicks Street townhouse by New York firm Kevin Dakan Architect. I thought today I would share the Hicks Street carriage house. This totally changes my perspective on what a carriage house is. This ain't no outbuilding! WHOA! The painted brick, exposed ceiling beams, skylight, and ah mah gawd the kitchen!! What a dream home! (Speaking of dream homes, I'm trying to convert mine into something I can maybe call a dream one day - check out my next post in a few hours. Slowly but surely I'm filling it with things I love.)
Voluptuous. It's the only word I can think of to describe this room. The punctuation of the rug, the curve of blue velvet disguised as a sofa, the mid century chairs and brutalist sconces all toy with the 19th century bones of the room, the ceiling, the gilded plaster, the wrought iron. And to top it all off a ridiculously large and "casually" arranged vase of elephant ears in a vase. Appartement Rue Jean Goujon, Paris by Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty, the design duo behind the architectural firm Studio KO.
