·         Private Gardens of the Hudson Valley by Jane Garmey

Behold the Blue Farmhouse

So we were thrilled to find that the house’s designer, Tom Givone, has undertaken other projects in the area, taking farm houses from rustic to revived. After the jump, you can see other images of this home he calls the Blue Farmhouse, and elsewhere on his site you can see some of his urban projects, too. We hope he’ll do many more projects and allow us to share them here.
