Jesse Carrier designed The Glass House Fit For A Family in the August issue of Elle Decor.
I have fallen hard for this house. This houseÂ hasÂ a greatÂ mix of styles and a sense of youthfulness.Â I think it embodies a lot of what theÂ preferred style of most is today which is– a space that has a sense of personality, is liveable, functional and at the same time presentsÂ a sense ofÂ history or tells a story about the people that dwell there.Â IÂ read a decent amount of design blogs everyday and I feel like the overall aesthetic represented in this home is what most design pundits areÂ yapping about, including myself.
The Fielden homeÂ manages to read modern,Â casual and liveable for three kids yet houses a French provincial diningÂ table, Chinese porcelain panels and a Chippendale-style breakfront.
Jesse Carrier knocks it out of the park, again. When the couple wants to incorporate family heirlooms that have little relevancy to the architectural style of the house, Carrier edits but manages to incorporate a lot of their family’s inherited treasures.
How much did you love it, a little or a lot? Perhaps you didn’t?
