I used to live around the corner from this place near Newington Green in Islington.  How brilliant to finally see inside!

It’s a great use of plain, old-fashioned brick.

I love that this recently renovated storybook cottage in the Catskills includes no amenities like a kitchen or bathroom.  It’s a pure and simple retreat, which seems like a rare concept these days.

I’m completely fascinated by these images of the legendary designer Irving Harper’s farmhouse in upstate New York.  (Harper created many of the now iconic modernist designs for Herman Miller and George Nelson.)

His sculptures – made from scraps of paper, carboard, matchsticks and secured with glue – are scattered throughout the house.  Harper’s been tinkering about with these remarkable masks, shapes and formations for decades – there are literally hundreds of them.

What an extraordinary life.

Check out this amazing rural Alabama retreat built by artist, builder, and all around folk-hero Butch Anthony.  He’s been building this place for over 20 years, and it’s constantly evolving.

I’d highly advise reading the article below – Butch is a fascinating, fascinating man.  Teaser: he only wears overalls.

This summer house in Maine, an icon of modern design by Isamu Noguchi and Wallace K. Harrison, burned to the ground in 1999.  Only recently has it been rebuilt – returning it (respectfully) to it’s original state.

It’s simply beautiful.
