Country House in the Mountains is where Wendy Lewis lives and works. Her 1800 Federal-style white shingled country house in Vermont is her home and her muse. I met Wendy a few years ago at the Brimfield Antique Market, where she sets up shop in her tent, the Textile Trunk. Her eye and taste for honest and gorgeous antique Europen textiles (as well as many unique finds), really caught my eye. So much so, that when she showed me a photo of her bathroom, my mouth dropped and I immediately asked her, “What does the rest of your house look like?!” Now I can say that I’m honored and blessed to feature her beautifully curated and comfortable home in my book!
Wendys country house was truly inspirational to shoot. And shoot we did…hundreds of photos! Throughout the year I’ll be sharing much of it with you, but since it’s a snowy day I’ve decided to focus on her chalky winter whites. From her stunning embroidered textiles to a pair of antique French farmer’s boots crafted from wood and canvas! Her bits and pieces make up beautiful still lives and nuanced sight lines. Wendy’s creamy white color palette lays the foundation for her decorating choices and this naturally leads to such a wonderfully cohesive look.
