What We Love: This rustic wood home was designed to be very livable, the meticulous attention to detail throughout is fabulous. This would make an amazing summer retreat or winter vacation getaway. The cabin-like feel can really be enjoyed throughout the seasons…. What are your thoughts, could you see yourself living here?
Above: Throughout the home, the flooring consists of reclaimed white oak finished with a custom stain. Then entryway gives you a view of the gorgeous wood staircase with a natural log railing.
Above: The living room exudes a rustic elegance, starting with an eye-catching leafy chandelier from Canopy designs, sourced from here. A central focal point to the room, the floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace features an opening on the side to store firewood. This spacious room plays host to several comfortable furniture arrangements, from a cozy spot to play backgammon to sitting around the fireplace to have relaxing conversation with guests. French doors leads you out to an expansive patio to enjoy the outdoor living spaces.
Above: The rustic wood dining table is accented by distressed leather chairs on a metal from called the “Gunnison Chair” (source). The space has been grounded by an area rug that contrasts nicely with the space. Bookshelves flank either side of the living room, adding to the uniqueness of the space. The shelves are illuminated by Visual Comforts E.F. Chapman Boston bronze task wall lights. To achieve the wall color, the architects had the walls painted with a distressed topcoat “wash.” The color is Olive 13 – Farrow & Ball.
Above: This stunning country kitchen features custom designed cabinets throughout. The center island is comprised of antique oak. Integrated into the island countertop is an antique butcher block (items like this can be found on EBay). The butcher block really adds to the authentic feel of this rustic home. The pot rack above the island was custom crafted for the space. A light-filled dining nook is surrounded by expansive windows that invites nature in.
Above: The island countertop, aside from the integrated antique butcher block, features black pearl granite in leather finish.
Above: Contrasting beautifully with the island countertop, the perimeter counters are comprised of Labradorite in a leathered finish. The island offers space underneath to store recipe books. Notice how there are two fridges in this decadent kitchen. All high-end appliances, there is a Wolf Range and Sub-Zero fridges. One features an integrated wine chiller, ideally located just off the dining room.

The countertops are Calcutta marble, which helps to pick up off the variegated color pattern of the same material on the floor. The shower tiles are white semi-gloss, sourced from Daltile. The sink and bathtub are from Kohler. The chestnut hued wood mirror provides the only contrast to this all-white space.
