Today marks the weekend that is the unofficial start of summer but with wind, rain and gray skies, I’m not sure we’ll be getting much summer, unofficial or not, quite yet. No matter, time to snuggle up with one of my favorite indulgences…magazines! We just got our housing assignment for Copenhagen and looks like we’ll be headed to a house. Gah! Having spent the last 17 years comfortably entrenched in dorms, apartments and shared spaces, I find the whole concept of a free standing home rather daunting. Seems kind of grown up too…But I guess I’m a grown up now, so time to figure this whole house thing out!
I came across this Philadelphia home – to close out our Philly week – in the Elle Decor archives. It’s actually from 2003 so no idea if the home is still there. But this is a Philly Colonial belonging to Keith Johnson, the antiques buyer for Anthropologie and Glen Senk, CEO of Urban Outfitters. These two gentlemen seem to nail that global mix every time, and while I’m not sure if they have the house, the fact that it looks just as interesting and fresh ten years later is a testament to the lasting nature of their style.
