A Lovely Weekend Cottage In Upstate New York


One of the things I miss the most about living in the city is the accessibility to upstate. The Hudson Valley and surrounding areas remains one of my favorite places on earth. Theres nothing better than taking a drive with the windows down while the smell of crisp autumn air floats through the car. This house tour perfectly captures that feeling and I would happily call it home. 

How gorgeous are the touches of greenish grey throughout? As we finalize a paint color for the living room (we've been living with a few swatches before making our final decision) I've been increasingly drawn to a deeper color on the molding and baseboards. I love how this contrast offsets the white and lets paintings and other decor really pop. Also, I dream of one day having an alcove like the one below where I can sit and read for hours on cool fall mornings and evenings. The paint throughout is various shades from Farrow & Ball.


This gorgeous weekend oasis was created by architecture firm Hendricks Churchill and required a complete gut of two thirds of the original interior to create the new layout. This new design somehow perfectly blends old and new and feels modern without sacrificing tradition - just what I love. Once the major renovation was completed, interior designer Kathryn Fagin of KJ Designs, filled the space with a perfect blend of old and new. The end result is a space that feels contemporary and uncluttered without feeling cold. Instead, every room glows with the warmth of friends and family gathered for casual dinners and special holidays.
