An Eclectic Retreat – Vermont
A city family’s vacation on the lake among the mountains of Vermont. The inspiration for this home comes from a small one-room fishing cabin of yesteryear. The entry evokes humble beginnings with its pine-tree bark wall coverings. However, the small, enclosed space quickly opens into a warm, sun-filled room capturing the lake and forest views. Color and texture brings warmth and ambiance. The Great Room allows the family to spend time together while giving areas for seclusion. A loft with a pool table and games overlooks the great room; with an open kitchen everyone has the opportunity to be part of the fun. The family chooses to unplug during their time at their home, it is essential to have spaces to unwind and connect with each other with room to breathe. The windows and doors leading out to the sprawling lawn down to the lake invites the outdoors in. Natural details in the wood staircase and bannisters as well as the planked ceiling and elk horn chandelier continue the nature theme.
