"A weekend in the country . . . "



I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  

Personally, I'm in need of a little bit of relaxation after a long week.  Unfortunately, Jim Burrows (prolific director of such hits as "Will & Grace," "Cheers," and "Fraiser.") didn't invite me to his marvelous home in Millbrook, NY for the weekend . . . but I can travel a bit through the magic of Elle Decor.  


" The Colonial Revival house took three and a half years to design and build and was completed in 2007.  "It was an ordeal, but we love it up here," Jim says of the five-bedroom, 9,000-square-foot structure created to feel like an old farmhouse."  



"For the Dining Room, the decorator selected an old-fashioned billiard-table light overhead and a glossy mahogany Georgian dining table, adding red tufted-leather dining chairs for a jolt of color."  And who might that 'decorator' be ?  Well, clearly, we're in another Michael Smith project.



A library filled with great book and great light.



" . . . a liberal dose of wicker, and primitive American furniture 'make you feel like you're in a transitional area between the outside and the inside,' Smith says."   Maybe a place for an afternoon snack after riding all day ?



Wow.  yet another great bathroom.  



"On the second floor, exquisite 18th-century-styled chinoiserie wallpaper with tree peonies and bright=plumed birds is installed in the master suite's bedroom and sitting room."

I could definitely spend an enjoyable afternoon in that library.
And I love the floors!
Happy weekend to you!

The bathroom is my favourite room in the house. Thanks for the invite to this stunning country home.

I agree the bathroom is incredible. It just takes you back to a simpler time of long baths rather then short showers.

I don't believe it was your intention, but I think you inspired me to have a bath really soon!

What a luxury to have a country house!

The room with all the windows is beautiful. I like the bathroom too, but I wonder about having wood floors in a bathroom. It doesn't seem right somehow!
