At loft level, this renovated rustic barn, now a live performance space, elevates reclaimed wood to its full potential. The vaulted ceiling, staircase railing and even the tables and chairs show a simple sumptuousness.
A mix of patterned bed linens gives this bedroom a fun, whimsical look. The light and bright color palette keeps the space from feeling crowded. Hooded pendants give each bed individual light, and canvas artwork livens up the white walls.
Kelly & Co. Design showed great finesse in a barn renovation that now boasts an interesting venue for musical entertainment. The lounge, bar area and loft are great places to have cocktails while enjoying conversation and the rotating group of musicians that play the room. Murphy beds, tucked away for overnight guests, are available at the far end of the loft.
Adding style underfoot is layered area rugs, a combination of natural fiber jute and cowhide. Built-in bookshelves provide storage, while exposed wood beams bring a rustic vibe to the space. A pair of gray chairs makes for an intimate seating area.
What an impressive great room! Look at those long sofas — perfect for lounging by the fire or watching your favorite TV shows. The symmetry of the room is soothing, as are the neutral tones and natural materials used for the ceiling, walls and floor. The space is at once rustic and contemporary, and large windows bring in plenty of natural light.
A view from the loft showcases the expansiveness of this rustic open-plan living space. The house is soundproofed to allow the homeowners the freedom to play live music and entertain.
Inspired by the farm and landscape, rustic wood paneling is used on the top half of the walls in this guest house's media room. The lower half of the wall is painted a cool gray, blending perfectly with a comfortable sectional. The Union Jack symbol and colors add a touch of English love to the space.
Black roofing provides contrast against this beach cottage's white exterior. As night falls, the home's warm interior light floods outside. French doors open up to a large front patio surrounded by a low privacy wall.
Natural light reflects off of crisp, white walls and a whitewashed wood ceiling in this bright, cottage sun room. An eclectic assortment of pillows sit atop a white and black bench with a furry throw. Magazines are kept nearby in a wooden bowl for lazy weekend reading.
The transformation of this rustic barn into a music/entertainment space provides a place for family and guests to gather. The lounge features comfortable sofas, occasional seating and a massive stone fireplace that inspires listeners to relax with a cool beverage that is easily ordered from the adjacent bar.
The pitched roof of the bedroom allows for chic, cozy nooks. A burlap-covered bench is paired with textured pillows and simple artwork with a distressed frame, while traditional French doors lead out to a balcony with views of the farm's horse paddock.
French Country style is rustic and comfortable. Gray curtains soften the windows, while a mix of neutral fabrics in linens and burlaps is paired with distressed woods.
Kelly and Co. Design created a contemporary-style bar in this renovated barn entertainment space without losing the ambiance of its rustic surroundings. A black granite countertop and zinc bar top sit atop wood cabinets and stainless steel fixtures. LED backlighting, which can be changed according to mood, showcases the bar selections. The bar features a keg tap, a wine fridge, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, and ample storage for glassware and other serving pieces.
Built as a caretaker's cottage on a Connecticut horse farm, this home now serves as a guest cottage, Airbnb rental and a private retreat for the property owner. Rust red exterior paint gives the house a subdued touch of color for an updated take on traditional barn red.
