A dilapidated farm, the house was rehabilitated as a haven with freshness and light. The house is white with gray painted shutters and a gable roof, nestled on four acres of gentle hills, meadows and oak trees. A spacious pavilion was added to the original home, as well as a guest room and a swimming pool. Created with a shabby-luxe look, the home was restored to its former glory with everything left simple and natural, whitewashed walls, doors and old wooden beams. A relaxed sophistication was infused into the interiors through furnishings and recovered wooden flooring with textured area rugs. Some areas of the home was left a unfinished plaster on the walls such as in the kitchen, dining room, home office and master bedroom retreat. The designer mixed antiques and flea market finds with more expensive designer furnishings and some inherited furniture. Large objects were selected to fill the spaces to make the home warm and cozy.
The range of fabrics in white were chosen with splashes of blue and a touch of red. Natural selection in rustic finishes of linen, burlap and cotton were also infused into the design scheme. A mixture of fabrics were selected of Ikats, stripes, suzanis, Provencal and Basque-French. The designer likes to escape to this heavenly retreat to see the changing of the seasons.

The reform of this 3,229 square foot (300 square meters) house involved removing unnecessary partitions and creating a strong visual connection to the outside. The journey begins as one enters the home through the main main entrance surrounded by gardens.

An open plan sunroom, kitchen and living space all look directly into a lush garden. Spread out over three levels, the only divisions left in the home are those that are structural. Delineation of spaces is achieved only through the change of flooring, wall coverings and ceiling heights. Versatile and functional furnishings are showcased throughout, with a mixed design aesthetic that makes the spaces feel balanced, timeless and universal.
A cozy living area is dominated by warmth of wood on the surrounding walls, embracing clean lines and color.

A refuge for a family, the hillside was used to create a series of structured terraces surrounded by lush landscaping.

The ground floor has a reverse order, housing the bedrooms to allow for privacy. The top floor has the lounging spaces to allow for views of the landscape.
The interiors of the home offer simplicity, not only in the distribution of spaces, but in selecting a minimal palette of materials, including maple wood. A beautiful staircase houses a wall of books climbing up the entire length. Maple wood flooring is seen throughout except for the kitchen where quartzite flooring extends out to the adjoining terrace, creating a clear connection between indoors and out.
