Seeing as The Graham & Co. is getting so much attention right now, I was pretty excited when I came across a feature on the home of one of the hotel owners on design sponge (my fave). What surprised me most about this Catskills home is how incredible the bold exterior is against such a rustic setting. This place is literally inspiration overload. Somehow it's completely contemporary, yet comfy, rustic, and even a little western all at the same time.
"The sofa is a Ligne Roset Togo, I love that itâs low and you can just sink right into it in front of the fire. The wood floors are salvaged from the roofdeck of the SOHO House in Manhattan. They are unfinished, raw, matte, and absolutely beautiful. They are probably the coolest thing about the house and run throughout including the bathroom. " - Amanda Bupp for Design Sponge
"The driftwood on the stairs cutout was found on The Graham & Co. hotel property when we were renovating. It had washed up from the Esopus. I love finding things like this to drop in the house, just re-enforcing the indoor/outdoor feel." - Amanda Bupp for Design Sponge
"The bed is the first prototype design for the beds at the hotel. I have to say, I donât sleep better anywhere else but here. And when you wake up itâs like being in a treehouse, you really get the sense that you are up in the mountains." Amanda Bupp for Design Sponge
"The overall inspiration for the exterior was basically just paint it black and let the exterior elements pop. It looks great in the summer and in the winter with 2 ft. of snow. The boards were stained black and attached with the rough side out to maintain a very flat and textured look, which relates back to the woods and mountain it sits on."- Amanda Bupp for Design Sponge
If this is what the Catskills are all about sign me up for several long weekends please!
