House Call: Barbara Pershyn-Davis in Upstate New York

Issue 34 · Summer Travels · August 27, 2009

The upstate New York home of Barbara Pershyn-Davis (editor of the esoteric online interior design magazine Eye-to-Eye) has a wonderful air of decaying grandeur. Davis favors muted, color-washed plaster walls (her preferred paint is Schreuder's Hascolac oil paint from Fine Paints of Europe), furniture dating to the 19th century, and slipcovers made from hemp feed sacks. It all adds up to a style the New York Times calls "three parts Swedish country to one part Ken Burns documentary."
