Keep Me Where The Light Is

I have mentioned before my appreciation and obsession with Christopher Spitzmiller lamps. The odds are substantial that if you see a beautifully designed room, his lamps are somewhere in the mix. Spitzmiller is the master of his craft, so it is no wonder that his upstate New York home would be crafted with the same meticulous eye for detail. The comfort of being instagram friends with Spitzmiller has made me feel very accustomed to this home (in the weird way that social media can make one familiar). I love scrolling through to see Spitzmiller’s and Sam Allen’s posts of the view of the garden at Clove Brook Farm in rain, fog, snow, and sunshine. Imagine my delight when I see the latest Architectural Digest, featuring a cover-worthy,  glossy and in-depth look at their home at Clove Brook Farm.

The glossy, orchid color door is a cheerfully chic indicator that this Greek Revival farmhouse is going to be something quite delightful. Sure enough, the interiors are elegant, polished, and gorgeously colored, just like Spitzmiller’s lamps. Clove Brook Farm is an ideal retreat that has the warmth of home and the roaming grounds of the countryside. This farmhouse is full of natural light by day and Spitzmiller’s light by night. In my opinion, that is how it should always be!

The oh-so-timeless Greek Revival farmhouse shared by two very talented individuals. I can’t get enough of those glossy, deep orchid doors.

An incredible open kitchen area all dressed in white. Imagine the glow of the fireplace in the tall wood-beamed room.

Dodie Thayer lettuceware is a vibrant pop of color in the kitchen. The use of wood work is incredible.

Elegant, layered, and full of scrumptious texture. How ideal would this room be on a snowy day?!

A fabulous blue floor and red patterned walls gives this guest room a sophisticated Americana ambience.

A serene setting for a goodnight’s sleep after a day on the farm. Harry Heissmann had the chic wallpaper custom made.

What a picture perfect farm! I encourage you to follow Christopher and Sam on instagram. You won’t regret it!

  1. What a beautiful and thoroughly charming farm. First, I love the name, Clove Brook Farm, second, that front door. It says that while this home is filled with traditional touches, its modern too.
    The garden is fabulous, I’d expect nothing less from P. Allen Smith. :-)
