If I could I would be heading up to spend a cosy Thanksgiving in this 1840's Cabin in Upstate New York. Owned by the Painter Sean Scherer and his partner Mark Mayer they have managed to capture an inviting atmosphere that is surprising and ingenious while at the same time being completely welcoming and enticing.
The entrance Hall
His Mercury glass collection
An antique card catalogue with an anatomical drawing of a bat above it
The living Room with an old slaughtering block as a coffee table. I could just curl up and read a book on that patchwork quilt.
The Parlour, grown up without being too precious
and how clever is this ? Vintage Bird drawings pasted onto the walls as wallpaper
and the same idea using Soviet Posters and Newspapers
and here pages from a vintage journal, such a simple idea and so beautiful.
I love the shot of Lemon Yellow amongst the moody Teals and dark greens
and in case you were wondering some examples of his work from 2006.
Or go to Sean Scherer's website to see more of his work.
Discovered on a new to me lovely blog Katy Elliot.
