This NW Washington Cape style home provides a beautiful backdrop for our artist/client’s work. The family’s collection of antiques and art provided us with a foundation that requested simple elegance. Light filled windows, linen slipcovers and velvet pillows invite you to relax and unwind.
Pairing structural elements that would be found in a typical Maryland barn with clean modern furnishings, we created contrast between rustic and refined. The bright white quartz counter tops and glass chandelier are the surprise, while fumed wood finishes and concrete floors are simply appropriate.
South Mountain peaks through the northeast windows of the barn so it was a natural place for lounge and café seating. We added a layer of Echophon panels to provide additional sound absorption. Placing them in a “cloud” fashion and augmenting a few of the panels with LED lights created a stunning ceiling sculpture.
