An Artist’s Abode: Modern Meets Traditional

The other night I was scrolling through my Instagram feed— aka careening down the rabbit hole, when a new image from fashion illustrator and Instagram sensation, Donald Robertson popped up. Robertson has been a well-known artist and has had great success in the fashion industry for a very long time, but it seems his brilliant use of Instagram @dondalddrawbertson has earned him a cult following and has lead to some very cool collaborations and projects. Every now and then, I’ll get glimpses of his home when he posts photos of his work or his adorable children, which of course, has made me wish I could see the whole thing.

As luck would have it, Robertson and his clan just put their house up for sale and it is pretty fabulous. It appears to be in a charming town just outside of Manhattan. It is a 1921 Dutch Colonial and was beautifully remodeled by architect Robert Keller and decorated by Robertson’s interior designer wife, Kimberly Gieske (she helped Gwyneth Paltrow design her house in the Hamptons). The Robertsons’ house and grounds are idyllic and beautiful, yet the interiors maintain a fresh, hip vibe. This house is definitely a must see!
