For This, I’d Go Fishing.
When you hear “fishing shack” you tend to think of mounted bass, claustrophobic wood paneling, dusty corners of ramshackle cabins and musty old quilts. Until you’ve seen this “fishing shack”, as featured in the New York Times. Owned by PR guru Melanie Brandman, this space went from exactly what I described previously to a mid century-meets-world traveler gem. I simply love it.
See the charming exterior left, and the before interior at right:
Made into this!
One hell of a view in the morning.
What I love most about this space is it’s layered, multidimensional appeal- different textures, time periods, styles, influences and colors. It feels like everything here is loved and appreciated and not there for decor’s sake. Take the elephant closet door handles below for instance. They were purchased at an outdoor market in Katmandu. The artwork behind the dining table is an Aboriginal piece from her native Australia.
This Balinese daybed is dressed in fabrics she bought in India, but the pillows are from Restoration! Mixing the new and current with well-traveled and antique makes for an interesting space!
Oh, to have a dinner party here! Twinkle lights everywhere STAT!
