Fabulous barn style by Monterey Bay
Barn living gets a lavish update along the California coast
In the kitchen, we combine sapele (an exotic African hardwood) veneers with textured resin inserts and stainless steel.
Warm putty-colored walls form a neutral backdrop to the Eldorado Stone massive stone-veneer fireplace, anchored with a chunky concrete mantel. The eclectic mix of furnishings creates a gathering spot; a laser-cut acrylic pendant from YLighting adds diffused illumination.
The porch's composite wood flooring adds durability and longevity. The long, smooth planks form a splinter-free surface and balance the rough-hewn look of the barn's reclaimed timber.
Mottled browns and grays get a jolt from red French doors by Pella. The rich hue is a nod to the traditional barn color.
A row of wood-trimmed windows frames the view. Hardwood flooring from BR-111 adds to the modern barn aesthetic.
A few bold hits make a strong style statement. Here, a cowhide chair and an abstract painting pick up on the earthy palette.
Walker Zanger’s blue glass tile forms a “waterfall” from the ceiling down the tub face, ending in a puddle of ModRocks recycled glass pebbles. Country Floors’ leatherlike porcelain floor tile anchors the vignette, along with Kohler’s extra-deep whirlpool soaking tub, which is filled from above.
Made of Australian lacewood, the custom headboard includes a niche for storing treasures. The cream lacquered side tables are both whimsical and practical, adding extra mobility to the traditional nightstand.
An older child's room often serves as extra guest quarters. The leaf-patterned quilt from Tuvalu is casual but polished.
