Ten Broeck Cottage by Messana O’Rorke

December 5th, 2010

It’s getting cold out there, and the colder it gets outside the cozier it is indoors. I remember coming across this home in  a book called “Scandinavian Modern Home”, and it’s been featured on other blogs but when I saw it again on ArchDaily, It reminded me of how beautiful and cozy the home really is.

A nice and simple walnut and stainless steel kitchen, I think I even spy a Vola faucet.

Big old wooden beams.

This photo is very important because it shows that the fireplace is actually connected to the living room and dining room, something that I never knew about the house. People say the kitchen is the heart of the home, but in this case it is definitely the fireplace.

We’re big fans of their big maple table. There is a new restaurant on Palmerston and College called Woodlot, and the best seat in the house is sitting at the big maple live edge communal table next to the big oven with a roaring fire going. If you haven’t already eaten there, you need to check it out!

  1. Love this place.

    Always imagined my grown up home will be something like this some day.

  2. beautiful. a nice cabin in the snow..
    the table is pretty beautiful, the base is kind of killing it though. also, the wishbone chairs are horrible for dining or working.. certainly one of wegner’s “sculpture” chairs rather than a “sitting” chair.
