Though many of the items in the couple’s home are vintage or hand-me-downs, it’s easy to get a similar look in your space with these shopping resources.

Dreamy, Rustic Modern Style at Foxfire Mountain House — Hotel Tour

(Image credit: Arden Wray)

Name: Eliza Clark and Tim Trojian
Location: Foxfire Mountain House — Mt Tremper, New York
Size: 7200 square feet
Years lived in: Owned 3 years

The Foxfire Mountain House is a recently restored 100-year-old vintage inn in the Catskill Mountains of New York that has been a labor of love for Eliza Clark and Tim Trojian, a creative married couple (and passionate DIYers) who tackled many of the renovation projects themselves. From the fun design work like hand-tiling the Moroccan tiles that are sprinkled throughout, Eliza and Tim have poured their heart into every corner of this inn. It’s this visible, palpable love of design that makes this more than just a hotel and more like a cozy home away from home.

Designer Hunts Parisian Markets to Fill This Eclectic Duplex

Living Room

Alexandra Magne brought her characteristic mix of styles, materials, and finds from Parisian markets to Duplex Republique, a 1,200-square-foot apartment within an old building in Paris’s 10th district.  The end result is a harmonious mix of industrial and Scandinavian styles.

The main living area features a sculptural staircase, made from a thin sheet of metal.  Two mustard armchairs that Magne found in a market and their mis-matched black and white graphic throw pillows bring bold color and pattern into the room.   She also mixed in a Berber rug and creased linen couches for texture.

Industrial stair

Restored original wooden beams run across the ceiling of the partially-open second floor.  They mix perfectly with industrial pieces in the lofted office space, including a desk that Magne discovered at a charity sale.  It was originally used in an old post office building.

The two children’s rooms continue this eclectic style with an added layer of whimsy.  The younger children’s bedroom is accented with a bright, peacock blue wall.  It also includes a demure set of drawers that the designer spotted in a shop along the Seine.
