Art became a vital part of the makeover as the large walls in neutral shades demanded ‘standout pieces’ that seamlessly blended with the overall ambiance. The fact that Haley’s husband is a graphic designer and her father a photography enthusiast meant that she was fortunate enough to fill the home with charming artwork without actually spending a fortune on the pieces. Understated and exquisite this is a home that beautifully blends the vintage with the modern and aesthetics with functionality.
The open plan living area is the obvious heart of the house and large glass doors ensure that it’s connected with the elevated porch and the charming view outside at all times. The porch becomes a natural extension of the interior in the warmer months and offers a perfect vantage point from which one can overlook the mesmerizing woods and the distant pond. Carefully curated decor in the living area mixes vintage rustic and modern elements seamlessly to give the home a unique relaxed ambiance.
