Amie Weitzman

This week, Design*Sponge featured the two homes of textile designer and painter Amie Weitzman– a townhouse in NYC, and a cottage in Connecticut.

I loved the happy, casual feel and mix of traditional and mid-century modern that run through both.

Don’t they both just seem to radiate a feel of “a happy family lives here!”?

Everything is so simple and un-fussy (and kid-friendly), and yet it’s still really cool– cool art and books everywhere, interesting textiles.. haha, I guess that makes sense for the home of a textile designer and painter!

At top, the kitchen is from the CT cottage, and the other two are from the NYC townhouse. The grey mud room and the breakfast nook in the post are from the CT cottage.

Check out the gallery for more! All the images that end in -2 are from the cottage. For the rest (I didn’t include all the shots, just my favorites), check out the original posts.

PS- I’m also super excited about the D*S book coming out and love the “book trailer” for it! (In general, I love that book trailers have become a thing… I love trailers!)
