Love the details on this double shotgun house 💜💚💛

It won’t be long, now. A late 19th century vernacular farmhouse left to ruin. #ruin #neglect #northcarolina #abandoned #sreeddesign #interiordesign #architecture #historicpreservation #restoration #savingoldhouses

I bought Amelie Beau one year ago, today. She's already made great memories and there are lots more to come! The old girl needs lots of work; but, good things take time. #restoration #historicpreservation #AmelieBeau

A few weeks ago I posted a photo of the outside of a house in Spitalfields where silk designer Anna Maria Garthwaite once lived and worked. I was contacted afterwards by @spitsmusic, a music charity in the East End, who are hosting an event in eight Huguenot homes in Spitalfields as part of their annual music festival in December - one of them is the house that once belonged to Anna Maria Garthwaite.
I was lucky enough to have a tour of the house with the current owner, and have posted about it on the blog - link in profile if you fancy a look around this wonderful house.🖤

A beautiful #mansard from above! This is the towering roof of the Knox Building at 452 Fifth Avenue! ⠀
.⠀
Designed by architect John H. Duncan, who also created the Grand Army Plaza Memorial Arch and the General Grant National Memorial, the Knox Building was constructed in 1901 and 1902. The 10-story Beaux-Arts structure was the headquarters for the Knox Hat Company (founded in 1838). The Beaux-Arts style for a commercial building was unique even in a city dotted by buildings of this style, most of which were residences, hotels, and civic buildings. In 1965 the building became the headquarters for the Republic National Bank and in 1985 work was undertaken to construct a 29-story L-shaped tower that hugged the 1902 building. The new construction unfortunately meant the demise of the neighboring Art Deco Kress building. Today the Knox mansard remains a striking visual on the corner, with the HSBC Tower as its modern backdrop. ⠀

Last week I had the pleasure of touring an 1803's townhouse in the Warehouse District in the midst of a full renovation/restoration. No detail was left untouched. More photos to come. 📷 @dubendorferhomes

Holy City explorations

Kicking off our four-day weekend with lunch at the Columbia Club. Good thing, too — after turkey and potatoes and beans, the only thing we’ll fit into is sweatpants. (Probably not part of the Columbia Club’s dress code.)

I am very thankful for having a roof without leaks over the last year! @rwstokesenterprises marvelously replace our roof in the same style and color slate as the original. Best slate roofer in Georgia - - hands down!

Nice pair of siblings

We're honored to have been selected in the first step towards the redevelopment of the Historic Mount Vernon High School in @alexandriavagov! This marks our second public/private partnership with @fairfaxcounty and we couldn't be more eager to begin master planning this 42-acre campus along with Elm Street Development.

Maybe it's because of the sunshiney blue skies; maybe it's because it's a slow and sultry Saturday and I'm light-hearted and at-ease, but Harpster Street has captured my attention, and I'm feeling a connection, a je ne sais quoi kind of thing. Harpster isn't the most beautiful or the most popular, but there's an intriguing blend of mystery, history and a straightforward sensibility that has me smitten. I want to walk and talk and hear you tell me about the disappearing brick walkway, the bunker hidden in the weeds, and the Garden of Eden apple tree. I'm falling for you, and I'm falling hard.
