Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

 

One of my favorite parts of running this blog is getting to know really talented interior designers and architects. When I first got to know Oliver Cope’s work I felt even more interested about architecture. As you’ll see, his work really speaks for itself. It’s impressive! Oliver Cope founded his firm “Olive Cope Architect” in 1988 and it’s located in New York City. His firm has won many awards. It’s really hard not to admire the amazing craftsmanship of every single house they designed and built. The work of Oliver Cope Architect has been seen in Architectural Digest, House & Garden, House Beautiful and The Wall Street Journal, among others.

Make sure to have your favorite cup of tea or coffee in hand and prepare yourself for a journey in great architecture. Enjoy!

 

Movie Set

This is one of my favorite houses. Residence in Cove Neck, New York.

Porch

Imagine all the work it took to make this house a reality.

Lines

Notice the lines of the roof, all the beautiful curves and details of this place.

Residence Old Westbury, New York.

Stunning details. Nothing is overlooked.

Gardens

This is a great example of classic architecture and design.

Pool

I love the shape of this house, and also the shape of the garden that surrounds it.

Staircase

Beautiful and elegant.

Details

Outstanding gothic crown moulding work.

Living Room

I’d love to have this archway in my house. Instant beauty!

Kitchen

This kitchen is big but it feels so “homey” to me and the color reminds me of melted butter. It must be great to cook in here!

Breakfast Room

Notice that the arches bring your eyes to the breakfast room.

Guest House

What guest wouldn’t love to stay at a place like this? I’d love to LIVE in a place like this!

Residence Riverside, Connecticut

So welcoming. This feels like home to me.

Lemonade

A great place to have a drink with a friend and talk about life.

Residence Centre Island, New York

This house reminds me of  a beautiful châteaux in France.

A Table

Very traditional and very elegant. The flooring is to die for and this round table is a dream.

Time to Eat

This is a very pretty room. I just wonder if men actually like living in a house like this. What do you think? Do they love it or do they simply love the idea of having a happy wife? 🙂

Le Jardin

Exquisite!

View

The view from the terrace.

Residence Centre Island, New York

Imagine waking up every day and being able to walk on that sandy beach.

By the Beach

I love how breezy this room seems to be.

Townhouse, New York.

Très chic!

Hall

I can see “Charlotte York” (Sex and the City) living in this space! 🙂

Library

Gorgeous!

Kitchen

Green countertop wouldn’t be my first choice, but everything looks extremely right here. The artwork adds some color and balances the green countertops. Aren’t subway tiles just perfect? I love their timeless look.

Living Room

Wonderful flooring and fireplace, and what about those chandeliers?

Now, if you think this post was way too “formal” for your taste… Well, the next house is for you, then. 🙂

Let’s go to the beach? What about this Beach House in Quogue, New York?

This house will take your breath away!

Love for Modern Architecture

It’s modern architecture at its best. If you read my blog often, you know I’m not a “modernist”, but honestly, I can live in this house and I never feel this way when I see a modern home. This is stunning!

Living Room

The neutral and light blue colors bring a very harmonious vibe to this living space.

Playing with Fire

Perfect choice of furniture and upholstery.

Dining Room

Fabulous and spacious. I love the light fixtures. I’ve seen something similar to them before, but it was actually a DIY project where the designer used a vase and transformed it into a pendant. It was cheaper than buying a pendant and it looked stunning like these ones. What do you think? Different, huh?

Kitchen

Very clean lines, simple and really efficient.

Study with a View

I wouldn’t be able to work in a place like this! I’d keep looking outside, wanting to be on the beach instead of being in front of the computer or simply be reading my favorite magazine on that couch. 🙂

The Other View

I’m loving all the wood work and the orange chairs around this house.

Work?

Yes… it really is inspiring!

Staircase

Not my personal taste, to be honest, but it’s a work of art.

Master Bedroom

Nothing beats the view of this place, but inside delivers the same high standard. The furniture in this sitting area is so perfect! What do you think of the low built-ins?

Master Bathroom

Brilliant!

Outdoor Living

It feels like another room of the house. Perfect for the colder nights.

A Walk

Beautiful view of the house.

The Beach

Oh, some places….

After seeing the last house it’s hard to believe it was designed by the same architect of the houses prior. This is what a great team can do for you: design your dream home, indifferently of their style.

This post was a real pleasure to make. I loved selecting theses pictures for you. I hope you liked them too. 🙂

Thank you for always coming back! It’s really great to have your company here.

Now, I’m off for a huge Spring cleaning around my house. Wish me luck, guys!

Update: I’m not sure if all of you know, but we’re trying to sell our house and last night we’ve decided to do a huge clean-up and paint some rooms. I’m painting crown moldings for the whole day and I’m still not done, but it’s looking much better already. It’s amazing how paint can make the whole house feel fresher and more welcoming. Now, I’m back to work! 🙂 By the way, every time I take a little break for a glass of water I come here to read your comments. Love them so much! 🙂

Have a peaceful day!

    Good morning Luciane. What beautiful images. My favorite is that charming guest house. Thanks for the introduction – I’m amazed I was not familiar with his work!

  3. Sharon said,

    Hello Luciane! Haven’t posted in a minute, but I’m still here! Love, love love both homes. I wonder, are they just for show, are they for sale, do people really live there? Although I am not a huge fan of the modern home, I have to say I think I like it better than the first. But don’t get me wrong, if someone were to give one to me as a gift, I wouldn’t turn it down!! I love your posts…still visit daily.

  4. Sharon,

    I was thinking about you the other day… wondering if you were around… It’s great to know you’re here!

    Have a wonderful week!

    Wow! From fanciful to modern. I really loved the town house.

  6. Elizabeth@themustardceiling said,

    Absolutely gorgeous. I love the architectural details in all them, especially those incredible staircases.

  7. Brenda said,

    Wow! Love these homes. I agree the green counter in the New York town home seems out of place. I thought I didn’t like modern homes until I saw the last one. This I would move into in a heartbeat. Thanks for the great pictures.

  8. Donnie said,

    He made each home individual and so stylish.

  9. SizzleandZoom said,

    I loved the last house. Not a fan of modern either but
    it seemed warm and comfortable with the choice of
    furnishings. I also love chandeliers. But who cleans
    those chandeliers and how often?

  10. Modern Country Style said,

    I am so in love with that first house. It’s completely and utterly beautiful. The outside is just stunning…..I want to move in this evening!!

    I hope the Spring cleaning went well!

  11. Jana said,

    I absolutely love these homes and your blog! I check in daily for some eye candy. I am a “retired” interior designer with an absolute addiction to houses. We just built the home we plan to raise our children in a year ago and not a day goes by that I don’t dream of renovating or think of what I could have done and your blog does not help that problem! 🙂 I love the pictures that you share, keep up the good work!

  12. Jana,

    It’s so nice to hear from you! I hope you always feel welcome here!

    Thank you so much for your comment! It’s great to hear from you.

    I always wondered what it would be like to live in such a GRAND place….but the cleaning would be so insane. I love them though they are super! :))))))))))))))))))

  14. Carrie @ Hazardous Design said,

    In my alternate reality I’d live in the townhouse and spend my weekends and summers at the Cove Neck residence 🙂
    These images are to die for. Thanks for sharing!

  18. the enchanted home said,

    Awesome post…beautiful pics. We had interviewed Oliver Cope and his firm for our house…..he has designed homes for 2 people we know and did a beautiful job, in the end we decided on someone else but they are very very talented and have designed some real showstoppers evidence being above…..thanks for the visual treat..wow!

  19. Dovecote Decor said,

    Lots of houses from my old stomping grounds. Many people have no idea how beautiful the North Shore of Long Island is. There is a long tradition of grand country estates and landscape. Oliver is new to me, so thank you for sharing.
    Best,
    Liz
