louise and i spent the last few days taking pictures on shelter island for my first book (more on that later...). we were guests at the gorgeous 19th century farmhouse renovated and decorated by owners james mohn, talented architect, and keith recker, author, blogger, editor/founder of hand-eye magazine and all-round renaissance man. it is a magical abode, flooded with light and filled with contemporary art, antique turkish rugs and ceramic collections. even the garden, dormant for now, was gloriously basking in the winter sun.
thank you keith, james and katherine for a much-needed break from city life!
