A full installation (art placement, bed and bath linens, kitchen wares, bar stocking, staff training) allowed the client to have a turn-key experience.

This incredibly stunning modern rustic mountain retreat was built as a family compound designed by Poss Architecture in Telluride, Colorado. Rather than large and formal, the client desired the residences to be a place to relax and enjoy the mountains and the views with cascading water elements throughout. The residence is designed to appear additive as if it has been on the site for a long time. The concept of something old and something new is used with an aged appearance as you approach the house, then revealing a more modern interpretation of a barn as you move closer.

This contemporary penthouse apartment mixes cool, clean interiors and reclaimed pieces in this city work space located in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia. The space was too bare and the detailing boring, so the homeowner’s called on the designers at Groundswell Design Group to add character to the home. The designer’s specialize in reclaiming and re-purposing, which came into play on the walls and through the furnishings. To meet the needs of the client, one of the two bedrooms was opened up and turned into an office and lounge. The contemporary style of the home was mixed with rustic and salvaged pieces. The main living area features galvanized metal from a chicken coop roof which adds horizontal bands, rusty patina and an industrial edge to one end of the apartment. The furnishings throughout the apartment function as art.
Interesting facts about the project: The cost of the reclaimed barnwood call, 12 by 20 feet: $13 per square foot; $3,120 total. The cost of the galvanized tin wall, 11 by 18 feet: $7.50 per square foot; $1,485 total.
The team designed the mural and had it executed by graffiti expert Sean Gallagher.
The horizontal lines of the painting on the window wall inspired the design throughout the house, as did the horizontal movement of the Delaware river outside.
The computer desk was made by the design team of reclaimed metal and has a glass top. The construction of the Eiffel Tower was inspiration for the desk.
The high-top desk serves as a unique conference table for client meetings.
Groundswell designed the shelves, which are made of metal and reclaimed joists.
The bar and the live-edge shelves above it are reclaimed poplar wood. The bars between the shelves are supports from old school locker room benches.
The designers composed the half wall and another wall with wood reclaimed from barns in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The silvery gray wood is hemlock, and the brown wood is mushroom wood.
The designers knocked down the wall separating what was the second bedroom from the foyer, opening the whole space up as an office and lounge.
The reclaimed hemlock and mushroom wood combination carries into the bedroom on a large headboard. It’s 8 inches from the wall, allowing room for backlighting.

Green Residence is a complete re-creation of an existing two-story 1950’s home in Noe Valley, San Francisco by Mason Miller Architect in collaboration with Regan Baker Design. The home is comprised of 2,100 square feet of living space and is now family friendly and perfect for entertaining. A closed floor plan was opened to maximize the beautiful downtown bay view. There was anticipation of a growing family, so two children’s bedrooms were added on the lower floor. In addition to a new master suite, the owners requested a completely new kitchen, new powder room and new downstairs bathroom for the kids. Several walls were removed and skylights moved and added. Architectural finishes, fixtures and accessories were selected to marry the client’s rustic, yet modern industrial style. Overall palette was inspired by the client’s existing sofa and side chairs.

Interior designer Thom Filicia rescued this 1970’s marooned fisherman’s cottage, out with the shag carpets and in with the glossy paint and nautical accents. This woodsy lake front cabin is situated in Skaneateles, New York, featuring three bedrooms and a two bedroom guest house. Filicia wanted a space with a youthful, laid back feeling, imagining a place where he could escape the demands of the city to swim with his dogs, entertain friends in the summer and in the winter shovel off the deck and drink hot toddies by an outdoor fire. He transformed the space into a rustic reverie with a modern twist, layering washed pine walls and objects aplenty, not to mention a glorious suspended deck that has been divided into separate lounging and dining areas, to mimic life on the water.
The decor for the home is fresh but also faithful to the home’s outdoorsy past, with a graphic palette. Throughout, ceilings were coated in glossy white to replicate the reflective sheen of a boat’s hull, with dark, contrasting doors. To achieve woodsiness without seeming to cabin-y, he washed paneled walls in light gray to show off their knots. To further a nature-communing mood, Filicia asked his firewood delivery guy for tree stumps to uses as coffee tables on the deck.
The conjure a boat’s snugness, Filicia built recesses into the walls of the living room and bedrooms (all the same size, all with identical walk-in closets, so no guest feels slighted). Here in the living room, he turned the niche into a seating area by custom-fitting it with a sofa (his own design) and piling on mismatched pillows, small ship’s lamps and insect prints hung surprisingly low enhance the coziness.
Skylights and lanterns (used as sconces) usher the light in, day or night.
The kitchen, tucked under raw, open stairs where a closet once lived, is both out of the way and easily accessible. In lieu of cabinets, Filicia installed open shelves, which he stacks with simple plates and glasses for an “honest and pure” look. Heavy door knockers are used as hardware on the cabinetry.
For a touch of bohemian, Filicia snagged a bedspread in the Philippines and fashioned a headboard out of animal prints cut from a book.
The entryway’s casual (and enormous) bar is a vintage workman’s table that assures guests that good times are in store.
A wall-mounted sink updates a rough-hewn bathroom; the mirror is rimmed with bark.
The guest house was once used as a garage, but the windows and beams hinted at the small barn it had once been and what it was to become. Filicia started by moving the structure away from the driveway, and then laid wide-plank pine on the floors and walls, emphasizing simplicity. For sleepaway nostalgia, he opted for mahogany twin beds, updated in ultra-lime, hoping they would make his friends feel as if they were mischievous campers scampering off at lights-out.
