...co-exist happily in the countryside. Here's another beauty in Upstate New York which had seen better days, but that was lovingly brought back to life with a little vision and a whole lotta smarts. My favorite part of this renovation is actually the mix of high/low furnishings the architect owner brought in to outfit his family's weekend retreat. A little something special in each room (read: Jean-Michel Frank, Arne Jacobson, Josef Frank} goes a long way and elevates the most humble (read: a good smattering of IKEA pieces) into something really special. A bold move that resulted in lovely, not too precious, spaces fit for grown-ups and little ones alike.
