home in old October

I love this c. 1778 farmhouse featured in Country Living. It's the home of ceramic artist Laura Zindel, and her family. That's her work in the hutch below, and in the last two images. I love the restrained palette, and the "cabinet-of-curiosities sensibilities" combined with genuine respect for the home's history - the wallpaper in the master bedroom was chosen by the previous owner's mother. I love everything about the last room.

I don't think I'd want to do full-on bats and spiders year-round, but in October it's damn near perfect.

All things on earth point home in old October; sailors to sea, travellers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of the hounds, the lover to the love he has forsaken. ~ Thomas Wolfe
