I get very excited when Architectural Digest posts archival features on their website, and I was positively giddy to find this Federal-style home recently posted from the March 2007 issue. The green bedroom with the twin beds and Jour de Juin fabric has been a long-time favorite, and I have always wanted to see the rest of the house! I posted an old Pinterest tear-sheet image of this classic and timeless room on Instagram earlier this year, and it was a huge hit… click here for the fun commentary.
Located in Glen Cove, New York, the home was designed by Jeff Lincoln for Mark Bitter, co-president of Scalamandré, and his wife, Wiggie. Naturally, Scalamandré fabrics were used throughout. I absolutely adore this inviting, classic style… Pretty is due for a major comeback, complete with chintz, dressmaker details and fine antiques. Do you agree?
