Summer Guesthouse: The Barn

5.21.2009

I love how the words "barn" and "shed" are used in the design world. What first comes to mind when thinking of a barn? Probably not the lovely one below. Deborah Cox decided to turn her "barn" into guest quarters in the Hamptons and came up with something wonderful.

If this is the new definition, I'd definitely love to live in a barn! Lovely. I especially like the attic bedroom- combination of wood, white sheers, and hint of color on the bed. The shower backsplash (forget the right descriptor) is very interesting as well.

Now this is my kind of barn!! I saw a lot of barns growing up in NC but not like this! Love the bathroom!

I love that bathroom with the concrete (?) shower! I've used that wall mounted sink--or at least one that looked just like it, from Alape--a couple of years ago on a project. The whole country/industrial look of that room is so cool. Rest of the house is pretty nice as well!

That bath is amazing. Wouldn't it be lovely to have a country home? Ha

Wow... This is an amazing space. So many neat things about it, but the whole feeling/atmosphere is what's got me taken with it.

I certainly dont think of a barn like this- but if thats what it is then I'll take a barn anyday!

Just beautiful! It really is funny that it is described as a barn. In that case I would love to live in a barn, shed or even the garage of some of these designers.

Love, love, love the new font!

P.S. : Thank you so much for recommending Hayley. I'm totally in love with her. Amazing work!
