McAlpine Daydreams...

Bobby McAlpine's spread in this month's House Beautiful
made me think of one of his other magnificent creations.
McAlpine designed this Missouri home as a series of
buildings around walled outdoor rooms. I love the way
he describes the outdoor coloring as misty lake & wet bark.
The surprise of the swing defines this space.
Well, maybe that staircase has a little to do
with it all as well.
I love the floor-to-ceiling linen panels in the
master bathroom.
Benjamin Moore's Sag Harbor Gray covers
the bedroom's walls, trim, and ceiling.
An iron garden urn becomes a powder room sink.
In the kitchen's dining area, interior designer
Susan Ferrier used unmatched chairs
What a beautiful still-life.
Crazy for these zinc lamps.
The ceiling's dark stain is washed with a lichen-colored glaze.
This month's House Beutiful piece focused on wood.
Here, McAlpine infuses the home with some of the
most beautiful wood finishes I have ever seen.


  1. I love this whole house-can't wait to get home and see the new issue!

  2. Amazing images of interior design for home design inspiration. Thanks very much for best sample modern contemporary residence design pictures.
