Uhhhh, how beyond amazing is this house from my neighborhood in NJ? There are a lot of cool houses in the area, I just usually don’t want to post a house of someone I might know. But this was too good to resist. This house is all kinds of wonderful and about 50 feet from the beach. I’ve been thinking lately, about how important it is to stay true to the original intentions of a house or space. I’ve been in a few houses that were decorated exceptionally well, years and years ago and what I love about them is that they didn’t try to become something else, the owners didn’t betray the original design by band-aiding one thing at a time until the place looked like everyone else’s. Instead you have a lovely period piece, case study house. I totally understand the urge to change things and move with the times… I cant live with anything for more than TWO YEARS (not really, but I do like to change things around…) so I totally understand WHY people keep changing things. But sometimes really nice when someone doesn’t.
I wish I knew more about this house, the architect, the year it was built, what it looks like inside…. But all I can say is it stopped me in my tracks with it’s amazing midcentury space shuttle lines. Bold asymmetry is so where its at.
