A beautiful fireplace in the living area and comfy decor ensure that those inside can spend some idyllic summer days just relaxing as they take in the sights and sounds outside. Spread across two levels the first level holds two bedrooms a bathroom a kitchen and a living and dining area while the top floor contains additional bedrooms for the boys.
Renovating an old dreary home into a beautiful modern residence can be a demanding task at the best of times. In fact many of us find a small kitchen renovation or a bedroom makeover to be a task too cumbersome to undertake and therefore put if off infinitely!
While the grand cabin has an exceptional style of its own the beautiful use of natural stone reclaimed wood cowhide-covered decor and other plush textures brings in that unmistakable rustic vibe. Yet the presence of large sliding glass doors brings an element of modernity and connects the spacious lower-level living area with the carefully crafted outdoor living space. The line between the two is instantly blurred as you would find yourself spending more time around the outdoor fireplace while the star-studded sky takes over each evening!
A neutral color palette is used along with low-slung decor to ensure that the focus stays firmly outside. An overhanging terrace and a lavish backyard tempt the homeowners to spend more time outside than indoors.
Transforming the interior of this residence into a welcoming modern hub DeForest Architects turned to steel framed glass windows and walls for the makeover. With the homeowners being booklovers the theme of choice was both simple and unique.
