Country Chic

It’s going to be over 80 degrees today in New York today and that makes it a great weekend to getaway.  A perfect place to do so would be the country house in Connecticut owned by designers Richard Lambertson and John Truex.  The showhouse room in my last post reflected more of their city style while this home is clearly channeling country chic.  It was featured in the October 2008 issue of Elle Decor and you can read about all the details online but the photos pretty much speak for themselves.  I especially love the library and the office.  More importantly, I wonder if they have room for one more this weekend!

    Oh my Goodness – what an absolutely stunning place. There are some breathtaking elements that I could totally use in my own home – thanks SO much for sharing! Have a great weekend – so funny to hear that you are hoping to escape the 25 degree heat – in England we are so shivering and wet that temperatures of 25 degrees sound MAGICAL – vive la difference! xx

    Lovely! Thank you for sharing! I love the use of the linen ticking table cloth with the bronze/crystal chandelier…mix of materials is perfect!

    I have the photos of the kitchen saved from a while back, in my Wish List for how my next kitchen should look.
    The beam, the floor and I absolutely love the step up to the eating area ..there is nothing about this house that I don’t like, actually.
    That chest by the staircase is wonderful also.
    What a dreamy house to sit and stare at 🙂

    What an elegant country idyll — perfect for reading, lounging in the tub and lingering at that gorgeous dining room table.

    All the spaces are gorgeous, but I especially love the outdoor ones…what a perfect spot to enjoy an early autumn weekend!

    I am so happy Tiffany saw how wonderfully talented these 2 guys are & I love their new handbags with that tiny touch of Tiffany blue on each one. The garden areas of this property take my breath away. Thanks for posting about them. xx’s

    I love the garden terrace which is tucked into the garden. It looks so embracing, you would become part of nature sitting there.

    DROOL! Gorgeous! I think the outdoor shots are my favorite, but heck I am not sure.
