A photographer and his family created a house that works from an easily forgettable ranch home in Westchester County.
The original 1940s ranch, though visible from the road, was easy to miss because of its low-slung profile, tired gray shingles, and far-more-fetching farmhouse neighbor. Nonetheless, the house beckoned to Bill Abranowicz and Andrea Raisfeld who admired its clean lines and potential.
Bill and Andrea bought the chaise at a New York City flea market and covered it in leather. The flokati pillow was a gift from Bill's agent. An oblong seascape by Jim Teschner, a friend, hangs above the George Nelson credenza. Lined up in a clean graphic style on a ledge, clear glass spice bottles are filled with sand from every beach the family has set foot on.
