This family room, which is a new addition, looks like a restored antique barn original to the 18th-century farmhouse. Antique wood beams; flooring, including some stone; and ceiling boards add warmth and character. Antique barn doors connect the new construction to the original farmhouse. Light from three directions fills the vaulted space.

A soft color palette was used to brighten this living area and help create a light and airy feel. Neutral furnishings were used; subtle accessories add color and texture. To balance the large space, the room has vignettes that feel cozy and inviting to the family of six who resides here.

The designer was charged with converting a barn into a space for entertaining large groups. The evidence of horse stalls is the main architectural feature; three distinct seating areas are grounded by a fireplace. The designer used indestructible fabrics so guests can come in straight from the paddocks. The overall design is “barn chic.”
