The bones of this house have stood the test of time. In the 70's Vermont architect Marcel Beaudin, designed modernistic style homes whose homes are pointed to as classic New England style. The home-owner had a particular taste for white walls. Everything which was added to the room is there to capture your attention.
The yin-yang coffee table can be pulled apart to share around the room or kept together as the center of the room. The coconut lamps add texture and drama. Italian designed sofas upholstered in soft brown leather add warm hues.
The living room display cabinet mimics the feel of leather with a custom faux finish, allowing for a balance within the room's colors.
The whole concept for the dining and breakfast area was derived as an open floor plan with subtle divisions. This including the breakfast nook wall. We didn't want to remove the architect's original wall, we wanted to enhance it. The material was melamine. Textured glass doors for private storage, a faux finish was added to the melamine for warmth. These treatments maintained the desired clean lines though added the desired character.
An Asian inspired table made of ebonized base and cherry, laced wood used for the chairs are subtle interest.
The dining table was kept and added a new ebonized oak chairs from France, which are open backed to continue the airy feel of the table. The light above the table is anodized and engraved aluminum structure, with stainless steel accents. The aluminum adds reflection and lightness.
In the sauna, a horizontal tiles allows visual widening of the space. Textured pebble flooring for ambiance and grip, also a teak bench which will withstand the moisture and is moveable.
Notice the steel grate welcome mat. It is beyond functional, it is also creative and artistic. Custom made to offer visitors a more welcoming approach to the front door, while still offering a much needed function for removing snow and mud from boots at this Vermont home.Large windows allow for homeowners and guests to have great daylight and forest views while preparing food. The kitchen sink seamlessly integrates with the countertop for a surface that is elegant and easy to clean. This kitchen feels bright and open. The white cabinets and countertops give a sense of a fresh clean atmosphere. Smooth textures and clean lines are balanced with the natural stone tile backsplash. These solid surface pulls are smooth and simple. With a minimalistic style, they have clean lines and offer an artistic touch to the kitchen cabinet drawers and doors. The kitchen pass through is a great way for the kitchen and dining rooms to feel integrated, yet still defined as separate spaces. The opening between the two rooms allows for daylight to enter into the dining room and for the home-owners and visitors to be a part of the activities of two spaces at once. The white marble countertop is a beautiful and practical surface for passing and serving food. The dining table we found features a glass top and unique wooden supports. The ebonized oak chairs from France are open backed to continue the airy feel of the table. The light above the table is an anodized and engraved aluminum structure, with stainless steel accents. The aluminum adds reflection and lightness. The wall artwork adds a splash of color to the otherwise neutral color palette. Leather furniture, rich wood grains, and handcrafted lamps give this space an ambiance of high quality, refined comfort.
