Interior of the Month // by Rafe Churchill

The New Farmhouse // Interiors by Rafe Churchill

This beautiful New York farm house has the most delicious interior. The colours are glorious ; confident, happy, summery, and playful. What’s so nice about this whole ensemble is almost the contradiction between the built form and its interior colour scheme. Whilst the architecture (by Sharon Architects) is traditional, the interiors tread a continually wobbling line between the presumed country house aesthetic and a much more vibrant edge. I just love this. I often think that I’d love to have a big old tradtional country house, and then I realise that I’m just not really that way inclined. I could certainly live with classic, subdued interiors and elegant finishes for a time, but I know that deep down, soon enough, it’d all just begin to feel a bit too reserved for me. Well, have I found the answer in Rafe!

Everything about this house is perfectly inviting. The furnishings, finishes, and cabinetry are classically detailed, bringing with them a certain elegant self-assurance, whilst here and there the trims, cabinetry, or even walls are given a most invigorating wash of colour and with it, an entirely entrancing whimsical luster. It really is a cleverly balanced aesthetic treat.

Sumptuous and delectable – this green looks fabulous against natural materials including exposed bricks, sisal flooring, and linen upholstery.

The wonderful yellow cabinetry and trim are in Farrow & Ball : Babouche

The watery trims are in Farrow & Ball : Teresa’s Green

The exterior is in Benjamin Moore : Yellow Oxide
