It's #transformationtuesday! Here are a few pictures (5, sorry...believe it or not I have more 😳) of our kitchen at Lombardy. This space was completely gutted during our renovation. When we bought the house, the kitchen and adjacent spaces were still in their original configuration from 1928...designed for use by servants, not the family. We opened the space up to include a kitchen, breakfast room and keeping room. As you might imagine, it's where we live when we are inside the house at Lombardy.

Hi friends! I took a mini IG break this weekend to just be. My husband said he didn't want to do anything this weekend and he almost got his wish. We saw friends and family and he did some yard work while I enjoyed the fruit of his labor, πŸ˜‰that is between the raindrops. It's been either sunny or rainy but always very hot, hot, hot and muggy. Nothing makes me and my hair drag more than hot and humid days. Inside I "shopped" at home and really like the oversized painting here. Do you shop your house? It's definitely makes my husband happy! β€’

Think I'll call this #mansionmonday. Here's a perfectly restored #sagharbor stunner to kickoff your Monday! #housegoals #socharming #hamptons

Welcome to the foyer of the #GuestHouse!

To the left is the front door, and to the right is a hallway leads you to the bar area and the staircase.

The bucolic farm scene belonged to my parents. The buffet is a piece that we purchased when we first got married. I remember people coming to the apartment and asking "what color do you plan to paint it?" πŸ˜‚
.

Speaking of painting, the walls are China White and the trim is White Dove. I really like this combination of whites. I painted the living room at the last CT country house this same combo - it's very easy to live with.

Monday is coming to a close and I'm like "Bye, Felica!" I did get the pantry painted and organized, and the kitchen mostly clean! So I mostly kicked this Monday's butt! Or maybe, it kicked mine, because I am already ready for bed! Sharing my living room that stays clean, because that is not what happens in a kitchen. .

Dinner for Two Alfresco πŸ’™ Farmhouse Style πŸ’™

Some serious barn door goals right here ❀️ Our barn is currently used by a neighbour farmer to store hay for his cattle. It's probably my favourite space on our property. I love the downstairs, where there are endless piles of barn board and old windows (umm Pinterest crafts?!). We keep discovering more and more treasures in here: a 1950s Viking refrigerator in mint green, tons of galvanized buckets (now used for garbage cans and planters) and rickety old wooden ladders perfect for displaying blankets and towels!

This house is full of #character ... that bell up on the back roof of the house? Was originally used to let the farmers in the surrounding fields know that it was time for lunch. When they'd hear it ringing they'd all begin the trek back to the farmhouse...And yes, that's an outdoor shower too!

Potting shed goals.

A pretty pavilion at Saturday's beautiful wedding venue - 18th century St Paul's Walden Bury in Hertfordshire which is a home of the Bowes Lyon family. ☺The late Queen Mother grew up there and it's where she finally accepted Prince Albert's proposal of marriage. πŸ’• So the gardens have an instant air of romance with tree lined avenues, each leading to clearings and pretty pavilions. One of these avenues became Saturday's wedding aisle leading to the pavilion where the service was held. ☺  We took shelter from the afternoon rain in the huge marquee for speeches, food and drink. ☺ When the rain subsided I had a mini wander with my camera. This is one of the photos from that wander. β˜Ίβ˜ΊπŸ’•

Monday is coming to a close and I'm like "Bye, Felica!" I did get the pantry painted and organized, and the kitchen mostly clean! So I mostly kicked this Monday's butt! Or maybe, it kicked mine, because I am already ready for bed! Sharing my living room that stays clean, because that is not what happens in a kitchen. .

In the bar area at #11CornwallRoad we have four felted wool #CocktailChairs, and an oversized cocktail table to hold both snack plates and drinks as well as a collection of books on local attractions and local design.

To the left of this frame is a bank of sliding French doors AKA the side door of the house. It's the area where I recently planted blue Hydrangea, and during the renovation, you might remember we ripped off a flat roof balcony/installed a black metal roof and new windows above it.

What do you say I take you on a virtual tour of the #GuestHouse at #11CornwallRoad?
.
.
I've had a bunch of you comment that you're confused between which rooms are in the Barn House vs Guest House. While I am still working on the finishing touches, it is finally starting to look more presentable in here - so I am happy to show you around!
.
.
This is in the bar area of the house. I have started a collection of books on local design and local attractions, like the #AppalachianTrail.
