Stripped bare beauty

Posted on Thu, 21 Feb 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s like a beautiful woman stripped bare of makeup, in my eyes even more beautiful. This New York country house by Michael Dawkins Home has amazing bones but it’s simple colour palette of black and white, its exposed posts and beams as well as those lusciously naked floors that allow the carefully curated furniture pieces and objet to shine … or should that be subtlely glow.

I love the simplicity, and oh wow- that downstairs area (kitchen/dining/bar?) is amazing! The windows, the beams, the floors, ahhh

Rita Harowitz says:

This house is mind boggling! Nothing could enhance the objects better than the natural floors…beautiful. And the black and the beams…what an eye! Au natural.

And yes, addicted to your blog. Once I start, don’t get anything else done!

What kind of floors are these? Very pretty!

Daniele says:

What kid of wood is that? The floor is really stunning!

Michael says:

Could you share the paint Colour and brand please?

Stacy Eatmon says:

Absolutely gorgeous! What are the floors, please?

Denise Fuller says:

I LOVE the floors. But my question is how do you maintain them… what if you spill something on them? Did you put any kind of polyurethane on them. Absolutely beautiful!!! 😍😍😍😍

Katherine Boucher says:

Are the floors done with lye, or simply waxed?
