Yesterday I posted about the idyllic home of Martina Arfwidson and David Weiss…the Elle Decor spread was from March 2005 and since then they have moved to a larger home more suited to their growing family…less formal and more rustic, this home is more New England farmhouse meets Swedish country…still light filled and fabulous, there are pieces you will recognize from their previous home ~ her mom’s metal chairs are now situated around the kitchen table and the four post bed in the master bedroom is now dressed with a bit more color, pattern and texture…there is a fantastic video on you tube featuring their current home, click here for the link…it is part of Pottery Barn’s series “Where I Live” and highlights the home’s gorgeous views of the Hudson River and the barn on the property…definitely worth checking out! Enjoy!

It’s May 1st and a gorgeous spring day in the Northeast! Absolutely perfect weather…light cool breeze, sunshine and every shade of green imaginable…so in digging through my archives this morning, I searched for a home that felt like today…crisp and refreshing…easy and relaxed…light filled and inviting…for me, this home has it all!
Shad Island, a Georgian Revival mansion, overlooks the picturesque Hudson River…homeowners Martina Arfwidson and David Weiss lovingly rescued and restored this diamond in the rough…from dark and stuffy to light and airy, the couple succeeded in creating their dream home…a romantic oasis! Enjoy!
below, this dining room is one of my all time favorites for its simplicity and feminine beauty…Arfwidson is the co-owner of Face Stockholm, a Swedish cosmetics company she runs with her mom…the table was once used at the Madison Avenue shop and the metal chairs are from her mom’s Stockholm apartment
