Wow...just wow. Beautiful job. I love all the architectural elements.

Daniel James Shigo said...

Love it, especially the hutch against the wooden wall. Beautiful. Really beautiful details. Please forgive me for this next comment: it may just be me thinking of my 80 year old parents, but as much as I love the oriental rug on the landing (and I really really love it), it is an accident waiting to happen.

Mahala said...

I absolutely love your blog. Your house is so beautiful and has such a serene feeling. You have pictured large glass bottles in your decor which I particularly love. May I ask where you got them? I have been searching the net for similar bottles to no avail. Kind regards!

Cath said...

Joan,
I so enjoy watching the birth of your rooms.
I looked at the photos several times and each time I noticed more details.
Just the right amount architectural details to retain the barn appeal but enough
polish to create the feeling of a fine, cozy home.

The layout looks fun. Around each turn there is another surprise.
I cannot not begin to imagine the hours of planning you put into
making this home a reality. Just gorgeous!
Thanks for sharing.

The "ballustrade" is perfect. I also love that you used a piece of modern artwork. It creates an exciting tension between new and old.

Cheryl said...

I am no less than astounded. This was well worth the wait, and I can't wait to hear the details! You did such a good job of keeping the barn "feel" and yet creating a warm living space.

Gina said...

Gorgeous...in a rustic kind of way. ;) Love the wire stair rail. Perfect. Again, the attention to detail is fabulous!! :)

Lady of the Woods said...

I LUV every picture here! Its like walking into a delicious chocolate mocha je ne sais quoi !

Judy @ A Meek Perspective said...

-Lisa said...

Oh Joan! Amazing and your photos are so wonderfully crisp. Your Barn Room is definitely magazine worthy.
I think the contemporary art on the wall is a brilliant pop of color in this space. I hope you and your husband enjoy this room for many many years.
My best to you.

Lesley said...

Wow! I never comment b/c I never seem to have time but this lef tme speechless. Absolutely Beautiful. I love everything but I think the iron gate door is my favorite or maybe the rug or no wait the modern artwork...

Alaina said...

It looks amazing. I love that it is different and not what you would see in every design magazine. You have great style and it shows. Can't wait to see the rest of the room.

Patricia said...

All I can say is "wow" ! Absolutely beautiful....

Karen said...

Joan, I'm never disappointed! Are the planks on the wall gray from age or did you stain them to appear grayish. Love the French hearts in the beam. So pretty.

It is just beautiful. Every detail is perfection.

Hi, Joan

I am in love with your barn. I just want to move right in. Its just lovely and all the details are just wonderful.

Thoughts on Design said...

Well worth the wait!!! THe modernity of the stair/handrail details is in delightful contrast with the rusticity (Is there such a word???) of the rest of the stair. As is the wonderful juxtaposition of modern art and antique hutch opposite it. The tension is terrific!

Cheers,
John

Katie V said...

I just love that you've kept so many elements of the barn while making it elegant.

LA VIE EN ROSE said...

Hi Joan, great photos! you really have been busy. Great feel to the space. My favourite pieces are ironwork door/gates - stunning - they add so much character. I also ADORE the bookcase with the ironwork, the books and your cosy little lamp. (There you go again with the lamps - I also loved your kitchen lamps).

Susan said...

To The Moon and Back said...

Joan, as with every room in your lovely home....AMAZING!

Patti said...

Joan! I am absolutely blown away! I thought you could not "top" your other beautifully designed rooms. This room is warm, inviting, unique, and lovely. The attention to detail comes through in everything you do. I squealed today when I looked at my in box and saw the reveal. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!!! Keep it coming!!!!

Catherine said...

Can't wait for the details! I love the way you've displayed such beautiful things in the hutch. I experienced a most interesting phenomenon as I scrolled through -- I smelled a clean woodsy smell of freshly sawn wood!

sactovlr said...

Pea-Green with envy and can only imagine the cost of this beautiful renovation.....

annie said...

one word...breathtaking!

jessica said...

Oh Joan {and Dan!!} You have done such a spectacular job in refinishing this space!!! What a transformation! I did have a question, is there a way to see where exactly this space is in the barn??

~*Jessica

Karen said...

Wow Joan I have so many questions but I know the next post will answer them
Kind Regards
Karen

Victoria said...

It looks beautiful, Joan. What a transformation. I love the collection of milagros on the beam and the vignette at the top of the stairs with that beautiful bracket and spool chair. The hutch looks wonderful as well.
Best...Victoria

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

'Splain LUCY...'Splain! This is a room off of the barn...does it go down to the garage?? Call me flumoxed.

BUT...what I do see is spectacular! Love the shot of colorful art...LOVE the Milagros on the old door jam and those FAB gate/doors...did you say they were from Argentina???

Vintage Girl said...

Can I move into your mudroom?

It is gorgeous!

Cheers,

Victoria

Andrea said...

I get so excited when I see a post on a room we have yet to see (well, I get excited by any post you do!). This one certainly doesn't disappoint-gorgeous!

Jean from Maine said...

Dear Joan,
You've done it again! I've been going over your beautiful pictures since you posted them...soaking in the details. The contrast of the antique metal doors with the modern metal 'mesh' on the stairway...the modern painting, which looks so 'right' on the stairway...the beautiful architectural elements...that gorgeously accessorized cabinet...the milagros (?) and the tethering ring and the nail (with twine!)
What an elegant and welcoming way to enter your home from the garage! Congratulations...it's beautiful!
Cheers! Jean from Maine

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

GORGEOUS!!!

IzzysMom said...

Hi Joan,
Spectacular! So much to love - the painting, iron gates, hutch....Can't wait to hear the stories on how they were found.

Low Tide High Style said...

Ok, I can honestly say that I've never wanted to live in someone's mud room...until now! Beautiful, simply beautiful!

Kat :)

Jennifer said...

Wow! It is just fantastic, in every way. Cannot wait to here about all the details. How did you do the grid on the stair rail?

Mary said...

Wow! Mud room you say? :D!! That's the most magnificent mudroom i've ever seen. And the stairs! Those gorgeous stairs. What's UP there. I would HAVE to climb them.

Cindy said...

Joan, Dan, and Ella: Texture. Wow! I LOVE all the texture in this room! I am heading back to take another look. Perfect. Cindy

Meg said...

can't wait for the details.
i'll be over soon to get those gates.

Lizabeth @ Infuse With Liz said...

Just bring in a cot and I'll stay here when you have that big open house party and invite me!! :-)
The hutch is marvelous and I love how you've detailed it! Your modern art caught my eye immediately and the way you created the fence like balustrade! Those gates for the room opening are fabulous and the Milagro collection is wonderful! Such vision! Are you sure you aren't Bunny Williams in disguise!!

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

I love the juxtaposition of the old (barn), industrial (ballastrad) and modern (art) - simply put, it just works! I also enjoyed your vignettes in the hutch. You've got me thinking about reworking a few items around here!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mary

Acquired Objects said...

Joan, thank you for sharing your gift. Your rooms elevate and ground me at the same time. They are beautiful and liveable...clearly, you are doing what you were designed to do. Thank you for sharing your inspiring labor of love. The gate, the wall stain, the art, and always the light!...they are my MFP...most frequent pinned. :)

Many blessings,
Rhonda

Just beautiful Joan. Love the gates, the stair well, the beams and how you used the raw metal. Does it go from upstairs to down or the other way around? Either way I love it all!

First, let me say that I love, love, love, your house! It is absolutely spectacular - perfect in every way! Second, I think we might be old farmhouse soul sisters! I live in and am renovating an 85 year old farmhouse in Maryland. The funny thing is that I found your blog today because I was searching for Benjamin Moore Moonshine. After a year of searching for the perfect paint color, I just spent tons of money having my living and dining rooms painted this color. I had checked the shade in every possible way - I painted small patches on a few walls, I had the painters paint huge patches on a few walls, I looked at them in the day, at night, while it was raining, in bright sunshine, etc. I was sure I had found the perfect color, so on the walls it went. , Now I have spent the past week looking at it and thinking, "It's too light, it's too green, it's brighter than I had expected, it's TOO soft, blah blah blah." I was ready to begin the search all over again and have it repainted. Then, I found your blog, and as soon as I saw your pictures I exclaimed to my cat, "It's Moonshine! The whole house is painted in Moonshine and it looks fabulous!" Of course, I now know that this is not true - but your paints are near relatives of Moonshine and I couldn't love them more. You have saved me tons of money and lots of heartache on the paint, so thank you much! I only hope my farmhouse is as stunning as yours when it is finished. Thank you so much for sharing!

Mrs. Sutton said...

That is the most AMAZING space! The first image is almost like the entrance to an exclusive gallery - the gates are absolutely incredible. It also makes me think of the fabulous restaurant Hakkasan (the London branch) which I know may sound weird, but it really is a beautiful space. You must be so proud!

Jones said...

I SO love your blog! Thank you for sharing your talents and passion for beautiful spaces with your readers. Your careful attention to detail is instructive and never obtrusive. The rooms and their beautiful pieces fit together in great harmony and aesthetic delight. The mud room reveal was worth waiting for. Wow!!

Barbara Bussey {The Treasured Home} said...

I love antique rugs, architectural elements and that hutch! I'd like to move into your barn. I doubt I'd be alone!
