This Week with Abbey Hendrickson: American Modern

o'brien_3Contributer post by Abbey Hendrickson of Aesthetic Outburst
I recently picked up a copy of designer Thomas O'Brien's book, American Modern. Hands down, my favorite part of the book is O'Brien's own home, a former schoolhouse now referred to as The Academy. I've always wanted to live in a renovated school and this just added fuel to that fire. The whole book is chock full of images taken by super-talented photographer Laura Resen. You can see more of her work here and pick up a copy of Thomas O'Brien's book here.

You're so right about his book. I only loved his own houses - his flat in its two incarnations was fantastic. I think it tells you so much more about a person when you can see how their lives and homes change physically. His own properties were obviously more personal - perhaps you can't buy someone elses aesthetic!

This house is gorgeous! It used to be really rundown and needed a lot of work, but he fixed it up back to its original glory!
