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."
