New York-based architect Doug Larson was featured today in the Home Section of The New York Times for his beautiful work in creating a modern day glass home out of a dark and dingy ranch house in Gallatin New York. Working with designer Selina van der Geest, Doug made a place that is full of light with comfortable and gracious spaces suitable for the country while still being sharp and chique. With mid-century furniture from Scandinavian designers, colorful Kalim rugs and carefully chosen antiques, the house is an oasis and a country retreat. The carefully blended spare architecture and rich textures work well in a country setting of upstate New York that is home to old houses, rolling hills, apple orchards, horse farms and polo fields.
