    Love the natural light, some of the furniture pieces, and the teacup collection!

    Well, I hate it. But they look happy enough with it.

    Extra hate on their cinderblock firewood holder.

    the house itself is incredible.
    the interior is a mixed bag. some awesome pieces and artwork, and then awful sofas and i hate the paintings above the fug leather sofa.

    I love how design mags now describe 50's/60's crap as "mid century".

    Yeah, bad photoshop. Wonder why someone felt it necessary to stick a poodle in the picture. Love it otherwise; when I think of "Connecticut", I somehow don't think of a home this style. I think of picturesque granny houses. The views are splendid here though.

    I like the blue chair and ottoman. And yes, bad photoshop of the poodle. He almost looks like he is hovering over the floor.
