A bit of period magic for your Sunday viewing pleasure. This early 1700’s townhouse in Spitalfields, London is everything you could dream of in a home from that era. Left virtually untouched, as it should be, it is a step back in time with old floorboards, stone, brick, shutters, windows, beadboard, moldings and all the good things. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.
Lots of bright colours were used as accents throughout this space designed by NYC-based Tali Roth, bringing in lots of energy and youthfulness. Grounded by lots of wood and some more earthy tones, this is how you do colour right. Also, let this dining room be a lesson in a perfectly executed gallery wall.
Whether leaning towards traditional or modern, Chicago based design firm Norcross and Scott Home create welcoming dwellings that are functional and thoughtfully curated. I am quite fond of their more traditional spaces and can’t seem to tear myself away from the photo above. Love all the treasure in that space!
Another home run from Kevin Dumais, but quite a bit more contemporary than the weekend home. His spaces are so incredibly timeless and thoughtfully curated. LOVE. The developers of this Tribeca condo agreed to undertake a custom remodeling with the owners, who had purchased the neighboring apartment and brought in Dumais to help design the expanded interiors. The open layout was converted into something more classically segmented and reminiscent of the family-friendly prewar style. The resulting four-bedroom floorplan included a family room, living room, informal dining room, walk-in closets, mudroom, and a home office off the master suite.

What an absolutely beautiful and relaxing weekend home in the country. I could absolutely move right in. Kevin Dumais and his husband, Charlie, bought and refurbished a three-bedroom clapboard house in rural Connecticut. Major cosmetic renovations included a completely remodeled kitchen and installation of ebony-stained oak floor throughout. The owners made this weekend house their own with mid-century furnishings, fresh white walls, and a range of inviting textures—turning a humble 1940s Cape into a fine example of updated country chic in the process.
