I’m arranging an inspection. Who wants to come? We can open the wardrobes, rifle through the drawers when the agent isn’t looking, find out who lives here. Then we can assume their lives and their house. That’s what stalkers do don’t they? No no no. Just kidding. That’s creepy. I would love to meet whoever owns this lovely home though. Great taste. Link here while it lasts.
This rather large weekend retreat in Bridgehampton, New York is quite the gathering spot for friends and family of the homeowners. Interior designer Kevin Dumais gave the formal/traditional structure some casual comfort when decorating the home and the result is cool urban sophistication with a retro/vintage vibe. The inside is pretty spectacular, and then when you head outside – BOOM! It just keeps getting better. Photos: Eric Piasecki. (It’s been a while since I featured his work here and here)
Luxury and elegance. This is what London-based interior designer Fiona Barratt is all about. I would walk into these spaces and think “fancy schmancy” but they’re not pretentious or blingy. It’s put-your-feet-up-on-the-coffee-table luxury.
This home designed by Fiona Parke of Johnston Parke Interiors is an absolute gem. The colour palette is so earthy and warm and the blues (helloooo velvet chesterfield!) are just gorgeous. I don’t even mind that the entire living room area is carpeted – I almost didn’t notice and I ALWAYS notice right away (maybe because I’m imagining what a nightmare it would be in my house of 8 cats who consistently barf on any carpet but rarely hardwood). Beautifully photographed as well – always a bonus.
Take a 4-story Romanesque Revival multi-residence brownstone in Park Slope built in 1899. Completely gut it, and add CWB Architects and Pilaster Contracting for 2 years of renovations. Restore part of the parlour floor, add a floor-to-ceiling windowed addition combined with some decor magic from Tamara Eaton and you have a pretty spectacular “new” home. Then put it on the market for $7.5 M.
