You guys should have seen this place in January of 2017. It was essentially a pine board box with a staircase and a catwalk. Fast forward to May of that same year and you will now find a perfect countryside retreat here in Hamilton, NY. My clients plan to rent the space as a groomsman suite as part of their wedding package at Ashling Acres.
Sometimes a space just needs to be dressed up! That was the case with this college town abode. This particular client is of a rare breed; They have very little "stuff" which is enviable in so many ways, BUT of course I convinced them to let me bring in some touches to warm up the space and make it feel cozy and inviting. So everything you see here was either thrifted or purchased in a very short period of time. We made it work :)
I was hired to take this space from cold & empty to warm and full of life. This property is primarily used as a Bridal Suite for weddings on it's expansive property in the countryside of Hamilton, NY, but the owners regularly welcome parents of Colgate University students as well as vacationers looking for a quiet retreat in a bucolic setting.
Our home in Hamilton, NY is an extra-special, ongoing design project. I have to find ways to create a look I love without modifying any major structural elements since we don't plan to be here for long. My favorite room in the house is our living room where most of our memories are made. You can pretty much always hear the loud cackle of a two-year old and the sound of a sports announcer coming from one of my husband's two TV's...not a fight I'm going to win ;)
