featured recently in domino, i’ve got a big crush on this victorian-era home, made over with modern touches. owned and renovated by the founder of lifestyle and clothing brand chance, julia leach has given this home new life. most of the work was focused on renovating the exterior, while the interior rooms were remarkably well-preserved. “Structurally, not much has been done to the interior,” observed Leach. “The changes we did make were really about simplifying the space.” i love how open and airy it feels in contrast to the ebony-stained floors, and i’m a huge fan of the art collection — the dining room’s four botanical landscape panels are stunning, and all those elusive, but wonderful sketches that i seem to have such a hard time tracking down at flea markets. i have big artwork envy here! for the full tour, hop on over to domino.

  1. I love the huge art pieces in the first few photos and the chairs around the table are so perfect for the setting. They are a little funky and I love it! Your photos always keep me inspired when I have to reorganize or design an are of my home! I love it.
