Walk into a light and breezy historic home that was once a Governor’s summer house. Period details were left intact despite the home’s contemporary vibe, creating a unique living space.
The entryway is my favorite part of the Governor’s summer house. I’m not usually impressed by most foyers, but this one has a beautiful curved staircase and checkerboard floor.
Step into the white living room and you’ll see the pretty contemporary aesthetic. Deep set windows are left unadorned so their architecture can be appreciated.
The casual dining area incorporates a beautiful sofa with a wooden farmhouse table and pendant light. Simple cafe curtains and a woven rug emphasize the casual space.
The kitchen in the Governor’s summer house marries farmhouse style in the form of open shelving with the contemporary backdrop of a marble back splash.
Texture is added to rooms which helps warm the spaces. Natural bamboo shades at the windows hang above built-in seating with pillows and a soft throw.
The formal dining room is decorated with a minimalist approach, allowing the custom table to take center stage.
One of the main bedrooms keeps architectural detailing on the walls while adding contemporary touches like a looking glass ball pendant light.
This New England home is stately but welcoming, classic with its white brick and black shutters.
