Eclectic Home Tour – New Old House

Country Living House of the Year 2014 tour

Remember when I spoke at the Country Living Fair?

Just a stones throw away, in Rhinebeck, NY, sits an Americana new-old house filled with charming details.

Welcome to the Country Living House of the YearΒ 2014.

It all starts with a welcoming wraparound porch with striped painted floors.


This is one bold kitchen and I love that there are no upper cabinets and the pull out crates in the island.

Mixing a new table with antique chairs adds an eclectic feel.

Details include painting the fifth wall in coral.

  1. I am not crazy about the interiors of this house, either. Love the architecture. That kitchen tile would drive me crazy.

  2. The kitchen is not functional at all,I like the architecture,but its been spoiled with the interior.

  3. This house is so poorly decorated, I wrote to the editor of Country Living magazine! It’s muted, muddied colors are a throwback to 60’s early american disastrous decor. Old!

  4. I love the exterior, but don’t care for any of the interior decorations. Way too many looks going on at once….almost too “old and dated” looking. Was very disappointing to see that. :/
