The Perfect House

perfect house

I love Brooklyn but sometimes I secretly dream of living in a big sunny and sparse house in the middle of nowhere. This place is perfect. I saw it on Poppytalk when Stu and Janet of Three Potato Four guest blogged about their vacation in the Lost River Modern, a prefab cabin in the woods of West Virginia. On a steep hill in the mountains, looking out through a wall of windows, they were lucky enough to catch the last of the Fall leaves. The cabin was designed by the award-winning, New York City-based architecture firm Resolution:4 Architecture (who also created the original dwell home).

I’m usually drawn to old architecture like Victorian houses but these modern ones seem to let you commune with your surroundings like Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater. I would love to stay in Lost River one day. I don’t know if Dave could handle being without his iphone though.

Here’s where I’ve mentioned the fabulous Three Potato Four on Maquette. Aren’t they are beautiful family?

    I know…how cute. I can picture them on a lovely hike and then nap in the pretty bedroom with the sunlight streaming in…

    Just stumbled across your site, and though I am loathe to meddle in marital squabbles, thought I’d tell you that we have wifi…
