While modern and contemporary homes may be in, this traditional Maine barn cottage tour is full of inspired design choices. Designed by G.P. Schafer a New York based architectural firm, this home is located on the coast of Maine. The cottage was designed for a couple who split their time between New York and Boston. The home spans over 3,300 square feet and has a courtyard.
The outside of the home features a stone veneer and wood-like brown siding. With barn-door-inspired shutters and hydrangeas surrounded by lush greenery, the exterior takes a modern approach.
The Entry Hallway
The entryway is a picturesque corridor. Lined with 3 light fixtures, a full wall of paneled windowed doors, and wood walls, this space is a warm welcome to the home.
The Living Room
With a wood barn ceiling, statement light fixture, and stone fireplace, the living room truly feels like a home. The traditional furniture choices create balance with the architecture.
The Dining Room
Featuring double doors framed by paneled windows and patterned curtains, the room feels one with nature. The classic dark wood table and chairs make for a simple yet inviting space.
The yellow kitchen is filled with country charm and feels like the heart of the home. The black countertops provide just the right contrast.
The Breakfast Bar
The breakfast bar highlights the wood-paneled light yellow walls and a window overlooking the yard. The classic brown wood barstool chairs pair well with the black countertop.
The staircase shows off the details of the space. From the wood ceiling to the yellow trim and railing, this space is light, bright, and filled with warmth. The artwork, throw blanket, and chair adds contrast while staying on theme.
The first bedroom showcases baby blue trim, a four-poster wooden bedframe, and a closet with barn-inspired detailing.
The Second Bedroom
The second bedroom has a bright and inviting feel with a plush red chair, metal bedframe, and patterned full-length curtains.
The Mud Room
Taking a nod from the kitchen, the mud room is soft yellow with barn-inspired hardware.
With lush greenery, fresh flowers, and a classic warm-wooden table and chair set, the courtyard is perfect for entertaining or relaxing.
