today’s post finds its inspiration from this rustic loaf of bread and sculptural white asparagus…rough-hewn wood floors may echo the uneven tone and texture of the bread while a clean-lined white sofa may take its cue from the long lean form of the asparagus…interiors with a complimentary palette and textural content…enjoy!

happy weekend!

anders zorn 1

 Today’s post focuses on the humble yet sublime palette from In Wikström’s Studio painted by Anders Zorn in 1889. Layered earth tones of stone, clay and putty provide a subtle backdrop for his female subject’s luminous gold skin and vibrant red hair. To some, this palette may appear quite neutral, void of “color” if you will, but for me, this highly sophisticated canvas speaks to all that I love about color and texture. It has opened my eyes to an infinite number of artistic possibilities…

It seems everywhere I look, the design world is embracing color…vibrant hues in wild combinations…I, on the other hand, can’t seem to shake my passion for gray…rich charcoals, feather weight pale blue grays, I’m drawn to them all…may you find beauty in these expressive interiors…

the art of editing…

chefs, composers, architects, poets, filmmakers, designers, painters…

all who create, edit…it is an integral part of the artistic process…

sometimes it is the silent pause or the blank space that creates a masterpiece

Now that we’ve had a chance to explore the Hampton’s home of Tim Haynes and Kevin Roberts, I thought it would be an appropriate time to share with you some of my favorites images from their wealth of work…they describe their approach to design as, “one of careful editing, connoisseurship, and comfort. The resulting work is a modern distillation of classic design that is spare, elegant, and inviting.”

Please enjoy this artful collage…may you be inspired by their thoughtful eye

Yesterday I posted about the glorious Hampton’s home of Tim Haynes and Kevin Roberts using images from a House & Garden I had lovingly saved from June 2006…I thought it would be interesting to follow up with pictures of their home I discovered on the Haynes-Roberts website and include more details from the H&G article…some photos are duplicates but others are new to me and I couldn’t be more excited to share them with you!

“I can’t put my finger on what people who come to visit react to, but they’re reacting as I hoped they would. They walk in, look to the right, turn right, and look back. They get the vistas.” ~ Tim Haynes

the living room below ~ A pair of iron torcheres, a pair of streamlined American chaises ca. 1950 from Alan Moss NYC upholstered in Peloton linen in Breakaway from Rogers & Goffigon, and an Austrian chandelier ca. 1950 (I’m in love with the 18th century wide plank wood flooring in this photo…flawed, marked and gorgeous! What a perfect foundation for the mid century chaises)

below ~ Sol LeWitt’s dynamic Double Pyramid No. 3 (1986) and a plaster academy model of Laocoon mounted on a wooden stand from Amy Perlin Antiques NYC (What an ingenious mix of old and new…for me, this spare, thoughtful design is perfection on every level)

opposite end of the living room below ~ Mid century pieces – Borge Mogensen’s teak and leather winged armchair, a pair of tufted aluminum chairs by Jansen, and a slate and wrought-iron coffee table by Jean-Charles Moreux. Hanging above the sofa is Al Held’s West-Northwest (1970)

the library below ~ white-painted bookshelves, a rustic English table from Ann Morris Antiques, and barrel wicker chairs ca.1970 from R.E. Steele Antiques in East Hampton, NY (I love the mix of books and white coral! So refreshing!)

“Off to one side of the entry is a combination library and bar, a notion borrowed from L’Hotel in Paris. Far more than a bar with books, it helps a guest enjoy the playfulness of the house design. A row of columns, with bookcases to the left and a stand-up bar to the right, defines the room. It is the first place the owners look when guests go missing. Invariably they’re found curled up in one of the big wicker chairs, often just staring ahead into the conservatory, which is filled with orange and fig trees.” ~ from H&G

the conservatory/dining room below ~ A French hexagonal table from Amy Perlin Antiques NYC

below ~ a stunning close up of the conservatory flooring, hexagonal table and winged dining chairs (I love this photo!)

the kitchen below ~ Custom cabinets by St. Charles of New York and Tim Haynes Architect NYC are fitted with reclaimed nickel icebox latches to match Viking’s stainless steel chimney wall hood and open burner fuel oven, cafeteria lights are from Urban Archaeology, and the Waterworks Easton 2-Hole lever-handle kitchen faucet is in stain nickel (I adore everything about this kitchen…the symmetry and large island remind me a bit of Ina Garten’s barn…I wonder if she was inspired by this design!)

below ~ Light filled corner of the kitchen (I love this photo!)

the bedroom below ~ Haynes-Roberts designed the bed drapery around a custom frame by Morgik Metal Designs NYC

the master bath below ~ A freestanding Waterworks tub

For part twelve of my Sunday tradition, I’ve selected a beloved archive featuring one of my all time favorite homes…this Hampton’s beauty is the creation of Tim Haynes and Kevin Roberts, principals of the New York design firm Haynes-Roberts Incorporated…quintessentially New England, this home is new construction yet evokes an old world charm through careful use of reclaimed materials ~ old wood plank flooring from an 18th century Pennsylvania attic, black, gray and white marble flooring from a 200 year old English country home, new brick tumbled to weathered perfection, the textured beauty of venetian plaster walls ~ within this light filled gem, they lovingly furnished their home with cherished pieces from the 18th century to the mid twentieth century…in the living room, Sol LeWitt’s Double Pyramid No. 3 (1986) floats effortlessly next to a pair of 1950s American chaises from Alan Moss, NYC while overhead, a sculptural Austrian chandelier, ca. 1950, plays with form and function…I’m in love with the flood of light, long sight lines and thoughtfully edited palette…my eye is at peace, fully able to appreciate the open spaces and remarkable beauty of each artful element…please enjoy
