RUSTIC RETREAT PROJECT

THESE EMPTY NESTERS DESIRED A COMFY SPACE TO HANG OUT AND WATCH MOVIES WITH THEIR GRANDKIDS.  THEY HAD A LARGE, UNFINISHED SPACE UNDER THE EVES OF THEIR NEWLY BUILT CUSTOM HOME IN PENNSYLVANIA. 

They were looking for:

  • A rustic feel using a creative mix of materials
  • A nook to read a book with a grandchild
  • A dry bar for serving and entertaining
  • Lots of seating to include their kids and grandkids
  • The challenge was a totally irregular space with multiple angles to the ceiling!

I created a bar area with open shelves using rustic beams and black iron pipe as the structural element.

To counteract the angles and changes in ceiling height, we chose a grasscloth wallpaper to add texture which ran across all the walls and the ceiling.

We specified for their contractor a stickwood ‘wainscoting’ to wrap the room which would balance the drama of all the textural wallpaper above.

The custom designed window seat is very deep, almost the width of a twin bed. Grandkids can nap while the family watches a movie.
