This charming, light-filled guesthouse is brimming with character and layered textures. Tara Mangini and Percy Bright of Jersey Ice Cream Company had dreams of getting their hands on this little guest house in Earlton, New York.
“We redid the main house for two clients-turned-friends, and were secretly wishing they’d invite us to stay and fix up the guesthouse. It was a great space that was calling for a huge clean-out, some ingenuity, and a lot of love.
“The main house is rich with deep colors and vibrant wallpaper, but we knew we wanted to keep this space more simple and clean. A pastel palette filled with raw wood, brass and textured linens seemed to fit.”
“We try to create spaces that will work today, and 100 years from today. Overall, the words functional, beautiful and timeless are always running through our minds.” Tara Mangini and Percy Bright
