Books... Love Where You Live

I have been waiting for this book to come out for quite a while, following it as it was shot with great anticipation.  Joan's store Hammertown Barn is one of my go to local stores and John Gruen one of my fave photographers to shoot with.  All of he homes Joan profiles in Love Where You Live are a casual mix of well loved homes throughout the Hudson Valley, Berkshires and Connecticut.
The cover shot alone is worth the price of the book.
I love a mix of country and modern and this book features a great selection of both, such as this modern modular by architect and designer husband and wife team Robert Bristow and Pilar Proffitt. 
Their house is the perfect showcase for the custom furniture they design as well.
What a fab mix!
 Gently curated collections are featured in illustrator and animated filmmaker R.O Blechman's home.
 A corner of artist John Greene's studio.
 A Warhol cow print against rustic barn siding and worn leather chair make a perfect vignette.
This peaceful resting spot shows everything I love about the area.  Who wouldn't want to be here!
Hope your sompelace just as relaxing this holiday weekend.  We are at the beach in Greenport and then back in the Hudson Valley for party's.
Stay tuned for some exciting house updates next week.
