Here in Honesdale, PA we were recently invited to visit a great 1850 colonial house that 2 artist friends bought — a house in need of much repair.
Even in its neglected state we were instantly impressed with this strong example of classic American architecture, which by the way they’ve named “Ginger”. Add to the mix all the uniquely faded paint colors, the distressed surfaces and the quirky wallpapers — well, we were completely smitten. Clearly the place would make an ideal location for this season’s photo shoot.
Being true visionaries, we’ve no doubt our good friends Sam and Christopher will bring Ginger back to her original beauty, respectful of all the character within. But for now, step inside and see why we were inspired to show the newest lisa b. knits, shoes and socks at this historic house.
You can learn more about the artist and her large scale installations at samuellegreen.com. You should also check out Sam's gallery and event space Basin and Main at Lot 21, another restoration project and past location of several lisa b. photo shoots. We will update with Instagram link once the Ginger restoration project is underway!
