weekend house in shelter island

又是一個下雪的星期六。空蕩蕩的街頭,人行道已經堆積起40公分厚的雪。我湊熱鬧的也出門晃了一下( 買今天晚餐的材料 )。由於雪實在堆積太多在人行道上而很多住戶又還沒有開始鏟雪,大家索性走在馬路上。追求的大概就是“平常不能做“的那種冒險感吧…

安安靜靜的市區景觀,飄著雪,真的是很奢侈的氛圍… and then you will wish you have a weekend house like this ( and a nice sunny weather ) .

from the designers:

“ SchappacherWhite Ltd. is a New York-based architecture and interior design firm founded by Steve Schappacher and Rhea White……The multiplicity of their practice is intentional. The harmony derives not from style or trends, but from a process where all parts of their work continue to enlighten the other. SchappacherWhite strives to create appropriate and intelligent design by finding meaning in the diversity.“

外貌是這樣的–是的,不太起眼。

正如設計師自己說的“當初看到這個跟我們強調現代風格完全不同的房屋外表,就決定要買下它–這就是我們一直在做的不是嗎?改造一個長期被忽略卻具有淺力的歷史性住宅!“

因為設計師兩人喜歡三不五時邀請親朋好友來這裡聚會,加上本身喜歡料理,
這個地方將被重新思考,塑造一個隨著不同時間及季節都可以使用的空間。

gorgeous dinning room space.
well. when you have a big window like this in your dinning room, nothing will go wrong.

as you might notice already, using chalkboard as wall finish is the trend.

a weekend house without a outdoor pool? no way.

這簡單舒適卻帶有現代感的佈置絕對是可以讓我輕鬆忘卻都市的雜七雜八煩惱.
