Steal This Look: Sun Porch by Dale Saylor and Joe Williamson

September 1, 2009

A while back I discovered Interiority Complex, a blog written by Dale Saylor (a Manhattan–based interior designer) and Joe Williamson (a landscape architect), which chronicles the restoration of the couple's 1827 center hall Colonial-style farmhouse in Columbia County, New York. So I was interested to see their previous house featured in Elle Decor this past June; in particular, the sun porch. Recreate the low-key, vintage look with Saylor's sourcing secrets.
