Dos Visits Annaminh and James, New York, US

Awesome looking barn turned into a home

Today I´m taking you to one of the coolest homes I´ve ever visited with my camera.

This barn, converted to a home, belongs to Annaminh and James, two art directors who moved from Manhattan to this amazing barn upstate New York, US.

Annaminh instructed me on how to get to them from Manhattan and she picked me up as I got off the bus. 1, 5 hour from Manhattan and I was surrounded by this beautiful country scenery. “Hey! so nice to meet you” she greeted me with a big hug. “Hop on in the car, we´re going grocery shopping“. ( I love when stuff like this happens to me, when people just let me tag along in their everyday routine)

Once we picked up all we needed for lunch we took an old dirt road up to the house. The barn is so rough and cool looking (Be still my beating heart) and it has a wonderful view overlooking a green landscape.
Annaminh took me inside, introduced me to James, who was at the computer in the home office.

“You can take pictures of what ever you like, I´ll call you when lunch is ready” Annaminh told me as she fired up the grill.

There are so many fun things to take pictures of. Like a big red throne, pineapples, sculls, beautiful wood paneling and the big bedroom that covers the whole second floor.
I hope you enjoy this visit.
As usual, click the images for a better look and captions.

So super cool. Its great to see a home tour again. I was wondering if you have any posts where you talk about what camera and equipment you use? That would be cool to read.
– and also, envious that you get to sit and work along side your hubby most days. I would so like that. But perhaps my husband wouldn’t :)
All the best!
