My dining room, above. The 1940s X-legged table has a linoleum top. I found it at a local yard sale for $50.
ONCE AGAIN, I’VE HAD MY NOSE RUBBED IN IT. I’ve just written two articles for Hamptons Cottages & Gardens magazine (holiday issue, out Nov. 24), which means I’ve spent time visiting and interviewing architects, designers, and owners of multi-million dollar spreads — one very interesting new construction around an antique barn frame, the other a re-done-to-the-teeth mid-century ranch.
The living room, above, where I spend many happy hours reading and watching MSNBC.
Perhaps I should be wondering ‘What did I do wrong?’ Yet somehow I keep coming home to my little cottage with a sigh of relief. It’s cozy and it’s mine.
I hardly used my screened porch, above, this summer. It was too darn hot.
