An Attic Full of Grace.
I have always been intrigued by attics. Perhaps it is the quaint, cozy feel of them...they seem to feel more like a space than a single room, I find. The beautiful attic featured above rests atop in a lovely remodeled 1846 farmhouse, in Long Island. Selecting a palette of soft white and neutral and great details, decorator Tricia Foley has pulled together quite the inviting space! It has become a serene and tranquil guest retreat, full of well-planned comforts—a favorite place to stay for children and adults.
"To Give the guests privacy, tranquility and all the amenities, I had to make use of every inch of the space" says Tricia Foley.
Instead of typical end tables, she selected a large, round table to sit between the two beds, draped in a soft linen cloth. You'll also notice her collection of vintage baskets, bags and trays, which allows for practical organization and a streamlined look. I also adore that little, clean, compact bathroom, that has been filled with Côté Bastide products, plush towels, candles and essentials. Wherever possible, Foley maximizes space and uses ledges, hooks, and floorspace to their fullest potential. Lovely plants, books, magazines, stationary, candles, and even night shirts, complete the space and make it most inviting...
