The Barn House is a guest house on Walloon Lake adjacent to our client’s main cottage. We were delighted to help create a Barn Design into a welcoming getaway for their three children that would match the funky vibe of their main cottage. The barn’s interiors blend layered textures and warm wood tones with white shiplap and watercolor accents. Their combined effect is one of perennial comfort, spoken in a contemporary coastal language. The upper level has sleeping accommodations, arranged in tight spaces like on a boat. The lower level is the living and dining space — there’s even a custom performance stage so the kids can rock it out when they host sleepovers. We selected performance fabrics and furniture pieces that stand up to real life. This means they will be able to have beautiful pieces in the home without having to worry about spills, last-minute guests or puppy paws! It’s an awe-inspiring place that’s fun to behold and certainly just as much fun to live in!
