I had the distinct pleasure of having a drink with devastatingly handsome New York designer Shawn Henderson a couple months ago. Besides being a fantastic talent, he’s a truly lovely person as well (we spent a good amount of time gushing about our love for our dogs, complete with photo sharing session). So when I saw his country home featured in this month’s House Beautiful I was delighted. The classic New England sensibility appeals to me in such a basic way and makes me feel at home. This week is so dreary and wrought with stress for me, this images of a calm, quiet country home put me a little at ease (even if I can’t transport myself there right now, as much as I desperately want to). I think we all should have a retreat like this in our lives!
Shawn also did this kitchen makeover for Country Living Magazine a while back- a testament to his vision and ability to create spaces on all budgets!
