A Gorgeous House on an Excellent Design Blog

One of my favorite design bloggers, Emily Evans Eerdmans, has just posted an item about a stunningly beautiful Federal house in Columbia County, New York. I urge you to click through on EEE (above) (yes, I know you already know how to do that, but some people don't, believe it or not; my father, for example, always needs reminding...) and find Emily's pictures and her charming story. Emily writes about front doors, and how they are no longer used, about which I'm going to want to say a few words soon, I can tell by the itchy feeling in my fingers. But for now, I must thank her, and share with you a wave of house lust such as I have not felt in a long, long time!

Lovely house and lovely pictures - but would it be totally out of control to have some underwear and socks on the floor? Just asking. My apartment is immaculate most hours of the day - great NYC skyline views - beautiful mix of modern and antique family furniture - but how great would it be to see a photographed published house or apartment during the first hours of the day? Underwear and socks on the floor, dinner dishes piled up in the sink from the night before - now that is REAL living. :)

There is something about a Federal House-- a breathtaking prospect-- a bit of hauteur--but strong bones, warmth and comfort behind the elegant facade. Love them. Thanks for sharing!

Wow!

Very funny comment about the underwear on the floor (unless you are a teenage son in which case it is a very realistic comment.) The way I see it, I don't want to see people's houses a mess. I like knowing that people have cleaned up in anticipation of a party--put on their best face, or at least, put on their best rooms. I get enough real daily life in my own kitchen sink, thank you. Looking at someone else's mess would only depress me further, or make me feel weary. Looking at someone's beautifully kempt rooms makes me feel....relief. At least somewhere, there is control....

Oh, can't wait to head over there. By the way, I watched your video and thought your interview was wonderful. Your book/perspective seems to perfectly gel with exactly where I am in my life right now. I am 40 and childless, so coming at this from a different angle perhaps, but feeling the same need to slow down and experience beauty and take the time to make things special. I have always savoured the details of life, but now I am feeling even more the need for inner peace. Funny but we are thinking of having a child. Shall I disturb my newfound peaceful ease??

I feel a blog post coming on I think. I am sure there would be no shortage of opinions on this topic.

P.S. Not only was your interview very interesting, but you looked very happy (and beautiful!). Then again, I think with peace comes beautiful. : )

So enjoyed meeting you in Boston at Trinity Church. Thought you'd like to know that I mentioned you on my website (blog): www.peggystclair.com

Feel as if we are kindred spirits, so I invite you to take a look. There are movies, podcasts: a collaborative online website with a chef, horticultural therapist, and interior designer into eco-design. Glad you are happy in your new home! Peggy

D-

I'm totally with you on that - but a little 'kink in the armor' is ok now and again, no?

How funny...I just checked in on Emily's blog today and was also in love with the house and it's history...such a wonderful post! xo

Ann Marie said...

Oh...can't believe you commented on this(well yes I can). I check with EEE everyday and was blown away when I saw this house. I don't often suck my breath in anymore and stop and stare as I am scrolling away, but THIS...!!!!

Regarding front doors ... We use the back door, on the piazza, for deliveries, ie groceries, etc, or coming in from the garden. The front door is where the life is, though, the nicer life ... guests, family, a bit of formality.

Dear Ms. Browning, Thank you so much for the wonderful comments on our house in Columbia County, New York. HG was one of my favorite design publications under your editorship. I love your book The New Garden Paradise as well. It has been a great inspiration for tasteful, restraint gardening to us.- Daron

Dear Dom Not so, I clicked on EEE with no need for reminding! Maybe I am making progress with the computer--slowly though, very very slow love =just beginning not to hate it! Love Pops
