"Black and white . . . "

" . . . and chic all over."

Good morning. For some reason (maybe the great weather we've been having, or thoughts of being back at my East Hampton project), I've had a bad case of "Country House" on the brain these days.

and these are two of my favourites; Ken Fulk's cottage in Napa and Stephen Knollenberg's retreat on Lake Michigan.

I'm really loving the dramatic use of black and white combined with the casual attitude of a weekend getaway. and, seriously, what a great entry table !

ah, the simplicity of it all.

quirky and perfect.

I agree with M loving the painting with the dogs, it is rich yet playful. Also love the double black doors and a few other things! :))
