Classic Modern

Last year I toured this house and was amazed that so much style could be packed into such a small home. The house was built in the 1920's and does retain much of it's original character, despite it's cutting-edge styling.

To the left of the main living room you'll find the dining room.
How I wish I could be this "edited".
O.K., no, not really. I like all of my stuff.

How do you like the chandelier? I know most of you have seen light fixtures similar to this one, but as I recall, this is real wax that has been electrified.

Now, look at the kitchen below, who would have thought of using that sconce in the kitchen?
I think it's the touches like that which truly set this interior apart.

Also, notice the metal windows with the great muttons and mullions in the "x" pattern.
Here's another thing: this house is DECORATED for Christmas!
Imagine the restraint one must have!
I adore the wreaths and paperwhites being forced.

The master bedroom above.
Quiet and simple--words I would use to describe the entire house.

I don't think there is one of us who wouldn't love to soak in this tub.
Isn't the marble wonderful?

By the way, the home is for sale. Any takers?


  1. Wonderful, love especially the living room and the dining room. Has the same old Louis XIV chair than in the living room.

    Very nice house, the buyers will enjoy it.


  2. I've lusted after this house on RealtySouth for a while now...I think it's McAlpine decorated. Or at least a good copy of a McAlpine house. I'd live there.

  3. this house looks familiar...wasn't it featured in Cottage Living??

  4. This is *exactly* the modern / traditional "transitional" blend I like to live in, as much as I admire the uber-traditional in theory. I wouldn't change a thing about this.
