Sophisticated living in true Scandinavian style is what you can expect from today’s house tour. An old converted barn in the Hudson Valley, USA, becomes a place of intrigue and modern, chic design. Operating as a guest house, this beautiful residence is a hidden gem, oozing class in a surreal natural setting.
From the outside, this charming abode still resembles the old barn, which it once was. On the interior, however, a full renovation communicates luxury and refinement – a pleasant surprise to any guest who wanders through its doors!
In true Scandinavian spirit, solid timber leaves a lasting impression in the interior of this space. Warmer wooden tones are reflected throughout the furniture choices, with subtle hints of beige and brown popping up throughout the many rooms. The solid wooden ceiling beams are a dominant feature in this guest house, evoking a sense of warmth and an obvious connection to nature.
Wide open spaces with a plethora of bare windows draw your attention to the beauty of the outdoors. The stunning tones of the natural landscapes just outside are continued throughout the home and furnishings, with vibrant greenery and floral exhibitions on display in all the rooms. From a delicate yellow bouquet perfectly positioned in the bathroom to a stunning greenery arrangement in the living space. This residence is a celebration of the natural world and the design is a constant reminder of the beauty of the outdoors, just on its doorstep.
The furniture is a mix of classic, traditional pieces and more modern minimalist finds. All areas are beautifully linked together by the choice of furnishings, from antique chairs to beautiful wooden candelabras and vintage artwork and mirrors. We also love the rustic freestanding bath which hints at old world charm and sophistication.
The bedroom too is minimalist, clean and light. Similar to the rest of the abode, the views to the outside seem to be the focal area here. The all-white walls are perfectly juxtaposed against the stunning hues of the outdoor landscapes.
