A 1940’s Farmhouse

Last night I stumbled upon this New York 1940’s farmhouse and immediately fell in love with it.  Owned by floral designer Dana Worlock and family, it is decorated with the perfect balance of new & old. The eclectic mix creates a welcoming warmth all homes should possess and also makes for a positively unique space. Photographs by Rikki Snyder.

This was the first photo I found that made me fall in love. Reason number one being that wicked cool use of a vintage periodic table. Why not hang one in your dining room? I really do love vintage prints and if they’re educational that’s just a plus. Reason number two is that painted chest. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again–paint can fix just about anything. This chest was left behind by the home’s previous owners and then painted for a fresh look. So good!

Perfect combination of an industrial light fixture with Louis Ghost Chairs.

The mixing and matching of rugs creates texture and balances out the white walls.

Have an empty corner? Put a chair in it!

I love globes. I’m also really liking the emerald dresser–a piece you could put in a boys room like the photo or doll up with a mirror and lamps in an entryway. The chalk closet door is so cute and fun!

So this bathroom. Other than the moose head thingie, I absolutely adore it. The hex tile paired with wainscoting is a look that can’t go wrong. And the animals lined up like soldiers atop the molding was the cherry on top for me. SO CUTE!
