You’re the Bestest

I was telling two of my co-workers (some of the few that will listen to me indulge and ramble on about design) about one of my favorite houses of 2010. Yeah I know its 2011 but these realizations take time, naturally.

In my case my favorite house has a relevant correlation to where I am living at the time. My current house would be very comfortable with it’s interiors decked out with a traditional, casual, modern mix which is some of what my favorite house embodies. And as I told my co-workers I seem to love everything that comes out of Connecticut and the Hamptons lately so you’ll understand why I chose this house as one of my favorites.

Without further a due,

Its Cosima Von Bulow Pavoncelli’s Sagaponak, Long Island vacation home that was featured in the November 2010 issue of Town & Country. It came to exist on my radar after Erika photographed the magazine and posted it on her blog.

The home was designed by her Brown classmate Markham Roberts, who already held a firm place in my personal top ten. Now its not perfect for me in every way, but there are a lot of things that are spot on for me like the library, dining room, living room and the entry hall. I’ve decided that I need some piece of apple green upholstered furniture and a strong floral in my living room ASAP.

As dorky as this might be, I ordered the November issue. I’m wondering if the order will drop into a vast abyss of back issue orders?

Update 3/22/12 —  Town & Country returned my little check and I never received the issue. If you ever see it, pay the $.50 at the antique mall and send it to me!Thanks for playing,


And now a quick word from our sponsors!

  • I fell in love with this house when Erika featured it in the fall, especially the way its traditional styling doesn’t come across as stuffy or overly formal. Thanks for reminding us of the beauty here!
