Frank Muytjens of J Crew at Home

I spotted a vintage grey rocking chair in ELLE DECOR‘s ‘Vintage Variety: Frank Muytjens of J. Crew at Home’. Although the house is not really mid century style, I can still appreciate the way he decorates his house with antique/industrial collections.

‘After making the two-and-a-half-hour drive north from Manhattan, visitors to Frank Muytjens’s weekend house in Hillsdale, New York, are often surprised at just how unplugged his rural getaway is. “Friends always panic when they find out I have no high-speed Internet connection and barely any cell phone service,” says Muytjens, the head of men’s design at J. Crew. “But I like the idea of it.” Muytjens frequently entertains guests who work in the worlds of fashion and advertising, and it’s understandable that some might be distraught upon leaving the city’s always-on energy and arriving in a lush, rolling landscape where birdsong replaces honking horns and sirens. His strategy is to distract their attention from inactive smartphones. “We make plans for dinner,” he says. “We cook and go antiquing. Or we hike—there are great nature trails around here.”

He must really like the blue/red persian rug because  I notice it in every room. Whether he has multiple ones or use it for photography purposes, they work and look amazing nonetheless.
