Live Modern: Modern Barn Conversion

Categories: Architecture + Interiors

Earlier today it was the interior of a cottage, and now, a modern barn conversion! We can’t help all these rustic modern interiors and exteriors we’ve been showcasing lately. The upcoming fall season makes us crave warm woods, snugly hearths, earthy textures, and from-nature materials. You can usually find that in abundance in cozy cottages and beautiful barns. But of course, this is a modern design blog, so we also happen to love when someone manages to mix, quite deftly, a rustic exterior and a modern/rustic interior, as seen in this barn conversion we spotted on the Architectural Digest website. Interior designed by S. Russell Groves, you can see how heavy, personality-filled materials like stone and rough-hewn wood make a backdrop for more simple, sleeker modern furnishings. An earthy, soft color palette fills the whole space up like a warm hug. While probably still a little too rustic for minimalists and modern purists, we see the modern in this space.

Do you?
