When a young couple swapped their urban Manhattan lifestyle for the greener pastures of Westchester, New York, they wanted something "slightly edgy," but instead they fell madly in love with a 1929 Georgian, they told Architectural Digest. Despite the country setting, the pair clearly didn't want to compromise on their urban taste, so they tapped New York–based interior designer Elena Frampton, founder of Frampton Co., to give it a contemporary makeover while keeping its historic bones intact. The result is a modern masterpiece with a hint of cool. The kitchen takes center stage (and rivals all other rooms) with stunning patterned tiled walls, marble countertops, and a traditional oven with matching range hood. Who wouldn't want to cook here with views of the serene provincial surroundings?
How would you make over a country home?
