The Gray Barn at Woodstock Sanctuary

Following up on my earlier post highlighting some recent press from The Gray Barn of my favorite images from this project, designed by Marica McKeel, Studio MM Architect.

Incredible views from every room, but the most impressive has to be from the main living area through these gorgeous floor to ceiling windows.

When you stay at The Gray Barn you are directly helping to support the work done by the folks at Woodstock Sanctuary. I had the privilege of spending a couple nights there when I was taking these photos. The space itself has a very relaxing vibe thanks to the open, minimal design and generous amounts of natural light in every room. And you might even spot some cute rescued goats in the field just below the deck!

Recent Press - The Gray Barn Inn at Woodstock Sanctuary

I recently had the privilege of photographing a gorgeous new bed and breakfast right outside of New Paltz, NY. The Gray Barn is the new B&B at Woodstock Farm Sanctuary, the 150 acre home to over 200 rescued animals in the Catskills. Guests there get a delicious vegan breakfast and the opportunity to volunteer and take farm tours all year round. The Gray Barn was designed by New York based architect Marica McKeel. Every room has an en suite bathroom, fantastic natural light, and a gorgeous view of some of the sanctuary’s property. If you stay there, you will almost defiantly see some adorable goats in a nearby field from your window.

Historic Details in Jersey City Homes

As a photographer who shoots interiors and real estate, I am lucky to find myself in a city with so many beautiful historic homes. As a supporter of historic preservation efforts and a huge fan of repurposed industrial buildings, its always a good day when I get to see a space that has been thoughtfully renovated, with original detail in tact. Here are some details from two properties in Jersey City Heights. Its hard to pick a favorite, but the wide plank wood floors and fireplace are pretty spectacular.
