We're very excited to feature the following photos and would like to thank Cote De Texas, Gloria Oviatt and Joshua Lowenfels for these images! A big fan of Mr. Lowenfel's gallery (we've blogged with some of his collection before), we revisited to feature a few offerings that we've been watching for some time and searched for some good interior shots as a complement. That's when we found the Cote De Texas feature on Gloria Ovitt (please use the link for more photos of her house, her contact information and what shows she'll be selling at) and her wonderful house! Finally, a wonderful, clean contemporary that uses the lines and palette of Early American and Country pieces to their clean-lined, heavily patina'd best.
The Spanish House from the last blog, with its Brutalist inspiration, inspires us for its spare, elegant lines, so too does the oldest house in Nantucket. The Jethro Coffin House shares the same spare elegance and economy of line, only (almost) 500 years earlier! Circa 1686, we truly believe that the palatte and beams, play of scale and lovely patinas are very bit as captivating and perhaps a bit more intimate.
There is something astounding about the aesthetic relationship between the architecture of Ensamble Studio and the artist Adriaan Berend Wagemaker. Although there is 45 years between the creation of the artwork and the building of this house, it seems as if one was constructed for the other- material, palette and geometries that soften as they interact with the organic forms around them.
We hunt for precious finds. Objects that represent timeless beauty and tell stories of time and place, taste and utility, integrity and influence. We're passionate about expanding our visual vocabulary and gather indigenous palettes, textures and forms that provide us with inspiration and application for our everyday lives. We will tell you narratives through the images we capture along the way—stories about process, composition, adjacencies, and the emotional energy created by brilliant design.
