    I hate to say “love” it, but I do… Your house is so nice!

    That is totally groovy, and makes me want to own one of my own.

    That’s a great piece, and all the white looks so nice.

    sometimes i think your house looks like a photographic negative of mine. where yours is crisp white with splashes of color, mine is black and gray … with more black and gray thrown in for flair.

    Joanna, I made it. It’s taken from an original design by Alexander Girard. I couldn’t find it printed as anything other than a pillow or a notecard, so I actually redrew the entire thing in Illustrator and then made a large-scale print of it.

    Nicole! Pictures!! 🙂 I love dark houses, too. Sometimes I feel like painting everything black and gray, because red-based woods look so great in dark houses…and little white vases look like ghosts.

    We live near Saugerties on the weekend. We are up here this week and are going to drive home along 9W tomorrow. I haven’t been in Newburgh for a while and will go exploring there tomorrow. Thanks for the links. Priscilla

    I seen what you’ve done to an old victorian and I simply love it! I grew up in Newburgh and was always fascinated with the architecture of these old victorian’s. I remember looking at some of these homes that were run down and wishing a good person would move on in and bring it back to life.

    Thanks for making it so beautiful instead of letting a great thing die down.

    I just found your site through AT. Your house is truly beautiful and feels modern but also unique -not slick.
    Wonderful.
    btw -did you use an IKEA frame for this print?

    Martha: Yes, I did use an IKEA frame for this print — it’s the the large, square RIBBA, which allows you to recess the print rather than having it up against the glass.

    Thank you for your compliments. I am a huge fan of your work, but I always miss out on buying from you! Everything is sold out by the time I get there. I have to be more diligent next time…maybe take the day off work when I know you’ll be listing more items for sale. 😉

    Hi Angie, see my comment above to Joanna regarding the print. 🙂

    Ever since i saw your house tour, i have been looking online for this Alexander Girard print. I only just read your comment! Ever think of making a few of those prints to sell? or give away?

  • Reply Anna at D16 March 31, 2008 at 2:02 pm

    Mia, no, I would never do that. Surely it would be a copyright violation.
