About The Project

The interior architecture and design plan connects this new home to the beauty of the land, with its expansive meadow views. Natural, found and unexpected materials are incorporated throughout, bringing the outdoors in with warmth, texture and the patina of age befitting a gracious country home.

Arched stone walls, beams and a custom plaster hood bestow a sense of age on this brand new kitchen. New wainscot paneling and wallpapered ceiling elevate the dining room. The Best Medicine, a painting by Lisa Tharp, hangs above a custom linen-wrapped sideboard. Handprinted fabrics dress the windows and restored antique chairs.


Visitors are greeted by a gallery wall in the entry. A gilded citrus peels wall sculpture by Sara Bumgardner beckons to the living room beyond.  A vintage mahogany door slides open to reveal the cozy space, cocooned in caramel grasscloth and spicy hues.

The master bedroom is a study in serenity, borrowing the palest color from meadow views. The guest room recalls a fun cabin getaway on an upper floor of the home.  Modern elements balance texture in the study. A lucite side table displays a vintage theater footlight.


The kitchen's stone, plaster and planked walls carry into the family room.  Custom millwork offers an extra spot to lounge and enjoy the view. Courage and Grace, a painting by Tharp inspired by her client, hangs over the plaster fireplace and hides the television.  The mudroom / pool bath almost feels like one is outside, with a sweet utility sink from the UK and exterior shingles cladding indoor walls.
