New from Jessica Helgerson

Don't we all dream about it? A light filled Scandinavian getaway in a summer time holiday hamlet? Perhaps in the Hamptons? For Jessica Helgerson's clients it isn't a dream. Pale wood, white painted wood, handmade white tile, marble and brass. The perfect palette. It may be a departure from what we have come to expect from interior designer Helgerson but it's simple, light filled beauty is so inspiring.

A Swedish style cottage in the American woods

How lovely is this simple 19th century cottage nestled among the trees in upstate New York? The refurbishment and extension of original building has seen the architect owner add a fresh Scandinavian touch, like a summerhouse a long way from Sweden. A pared back home, almost minimalist - Stanfordville Cottage by Larson and Paul.
