When we very first highlighted the Catskills farmhouse of writer Lisa Przystup, it was the summer of 2017 the 1st solar eclipse in a century was about to acquire more than the sky and solid minor moon-shaped shadows on the floor and Lisa and her partner, musician Jonathon Linaberry, then Brooklynites, experienced just located an 1800s farmhouse on a hilltop in Delhi, New York, to serve as their weekend escape. It became their weekend job, also: portray just about every interior area creamy white, Do-it-yourself-ing a brass backsplash in the kitchen, knocking out some walls. We loved the thoughtful, unfussy, pared-back again character of the place—though, Lisa instructed us at the time, it was still a perform in development.
So when we noticed up-to-date pictures on Jenni Kayne’s web site Rip & Tan this autumn, some 3 a long time later on, we figured it was time for a round of Wherever Are They Now: Upstate Farmhouse Edition.
What’s changed? “SO much,” Lisa wrote to me through email this 7 days. “I feel we had been in the home for perhaps eight months” at the time it very first appeared on Remodelista, “so at that place we were in that phase where all the things feels a very little sparse and bare. We were nonetheless being familiar with how we’d be making use of the home and what made sense for the place. Following residing in a 500/600-sq.-foot railroad apartment [in Brooklyn] in which it felt like we were residing on top rated of every other and buried less than tchotchkes, it felt seriously fantastic to just choose a deep visual breath and depart room for house.
“I started off hankering for layers and heat and texture at about the two 12 months mark—pillows and quilts and blankets and filling out nooks with items. Also this magical factor ends up occurring the extended you are in a house: You begin residing in it, like really residing in it, and producing memories and adding emotional layers—bits and parts of memories, drawings from my godsons, items from family and mates, dried bits and pieces from character walks—and which is what definitely begins to make every thing truly feel crammed out.”
A further development? Lisa has a new reserve out this slide: Upstate: Residing Areas with Room to Live, by Lisa herself, with pictures by Sarah Elliott.
