Following her dreams: A New York retreat

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Pretty gorgeous, right? It's been my experience that a beautifully landscaped yard generally means that the home beyond the flowers is as equally beautiful. Such is the case with this 1830's home of artist Kathryn Windley in Milan, New York. 

Kathryn got burned out and longed for a simpler life. She left her career as art director for a fast paced ad agency and bought the home back in 1998. Now she has a sunny studio in the homes ground floor addition.

Kathryn's oil painting depicts the homes 20-acre property. 

  

I love walls of bookcases! Don't invite me over and leave me in your living room of books by myself because I will read all the titles before you return with my sweet tea. You can learn so much about a person through the books they read. Agreed?!    

There is a laundry list of favorite things happening in this bathroom. The mirrors slide, barn door style to expose a recessed medicine cabinet. The chunky white sinks sit atop a countertop made out of a big thick slab of wood. Hand towels are conveniently held by undermounted towel bars. And don't get me started on that cast iron tub looking into that fabulous yard.  

Look closely at the reclaimed pine that covers the fireplace and you can see the hinges of the hidden storage, behind which the TV is stored.
