John Derian's 18th century home

Artist and designer John Derian has the most incredible home full of curiosities, antique art, shabby furniture and mis-matched objet d'art. The peeling wallpaper, the age-old wood and the flaking plaster makes this home feel so well-loved and distinctive. The fact that John hasn't overly renovated the place makes it all the more appealing. He hasn't erased any of the build's wonderful history.

I can imagine long hot summers spent here relaxing and taking things slow.
