Inside a charming and inviting Japanese-style house in upstate New York!

This upstate New York vacation home is designed by art and creative director Vivia Horn with her now-ex husband, lawyer C. Steven Horn. With the help of Steven's early client, Mr. Kobayashi, a Japanese artisan, the 1950s ranch is transformed into a Western-inflected, traditional Japanese space. Books on Japanese architecture and interior were used as reference for customizing the abode. Intrigued? Let's check out this Eastern-influenced retreat, shall we?

How amazing is this Japanese-style home? A combination of brass accents and a range of wood elements provides warmth and coziness to the space. Details such as sliding screen doors, wood beam ceilings, a Japanese-style fire pit and various Japanese accessories provide character and authenticity. Exuding charm, elegance and serenity, this retreat truly captures the essence of Japanese decor, don't you think? I am particularly drawn to the charming antique pot holder with the hand-carved wooden fishhook and the stunning antique screen above the master bedroom, how about you, my lovelies? Is there anything that catches your eye? Thoughts?
