Earlier this year, the New York Times did a piece on the family home of the founder of Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co, Brian Faherty. I. LOVE. EVERYTHING. about this house. Simple, understated and entirely welcoming. It's not just the wood paneling, outdoor courtyard, or impeccable styling that have me reeling as much as their overall utilitarian and fuss-free approach to design.
P.S. Brian Faherty also did an incredibly heartfelt and moving TED Talk called Finding My Analog Self in a Digital World and it's well worth a listen.
