Carriage House Livingroom

Livingroom Panorama


We’ll get back to the exterior when we can get some good pics in the summer.

The Coffee Table


These photos show the conversion of the lower stable space.    This large open space contains kitchen, dining and living areas.  A new three-tiered floor slab was installed, including hydronic radiant heat.  The exposed timber framing and deck, and fieldstone walls, provide a counterpoint to the modern style, conveniences and furnishings.  The barn doors at either end have been replaced by walls of glass, including a new entry facing the 500-foot long driveway.

The Art Wall


The Wall of Storage


 An entire wall, the length of the space, is fitted with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry.  From front-to-back, it provides coat storage at the entry, an entertainment module, bookshelves and toy storage for the living area, a buffet and credenza at the dining level, and appliances, coffee bar and pantry at the kitchen.  An L-shaped cooking island sets the kitchen apart from the dining area.  Floors are slate tile and Alder.  Cabinet faces are maple veneer.   All of the recesses at windows and doors are painted a very pale celadon green, and all cabinetry in these spaces is painted lilac.  We have judiciously used accents of orange and fuschia in the pillows and Marimekko wall hanging.
