The “Crow Room,” Rokeby House, by Robert Chanler

I nearly jumped out of my seat on the train when I saw this photo of the “crow room” by Robert Chanler. It's in the New York Times’ article about Rokeby House, a 195-year-old home on the Hudson River. Chanler painted it in the 1890s.

It’s beautiful….and so contemporary. This is the aesthetic that Anthropologie (and others) strive for -- and here is the real thing in all its lovely, decaying glory. Amazing.
