make it yours: josh vogel

Josh Vogel of Blackcreek Mercantile and his girlfriend, Kelly Zaneto, share this stone cottage in the Hudson Valley forest. Josh explains that their home reflects the attitude of the couples’ lives: “Nothing we own is so precious that it can’t get dinged or scratched; in fact, there is a softness and warmth we enjoy that can only be created through use and a simple beauty that is inherent in basic functionality.” The cottage is absolutely beautiful and natural. It’s filled with earthy colors and an unrefined style — just the way any cottage in the forest ought to be. Don’t miss the rest of the original sneak peek here. — Lauren

    Very inspiring color palettes! Thanks!

  3. Lisa Stewart says:

    Love this kitchen! Would work well for an impromptu studio, too. A great idea for all those wine crates I’ve collected…

  4. I LOVE first space!! So unique and something you don’t see everyday. And that spoon is pretty fantastic!

  5. Such a gorgeous kitchen! Wonderful marriage of rich woods with vibrant colors, so well done. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love how warm and comfortable the kitchen feels.

    Added their kitchen to my pinterest; love their attitude!

  8. Karina says:

    They must be warm individuals because I get such a warm vibe by looking at these pictures. There’s many different things in the first photo, but doesn’t look cluttered at all! The Tivoli Model One looks antiquated and modern at the same time!

  9. I have an orange casserole dish like the ones pictured. I love em’. The perfect way to add punch to a kitchen ;)
    Ps. That tufted sofa is amazing!

    amazing spaces, i love their character! the kitchen area is amazing! i love the use of wood and how it’s paired with that minty blue on the wall.

  11. Karen says:

    Wow, the cabinets are so beautiful. How fun to wake up every day and see such beautiful wood right in your own kitchen.

  12. sarah says:

    very cool attitude about design and the functionality of the home!

  13. David says:

    I’m not as enthralled by this home as others. The walls are great and some interesting antiques, but it doesn’t have the mark of the artist that lives there. Mr. Vogel makes beautiful turnings that, in person, are just smooth and elegant. He founded BDDW, one of the most respected furniture companies in America right now. That said, there are very few of his own pieces in his home – maybe a turning here or there, but no pieces of substantial furniture. I wonder why that is.
