An Eclectic Retreat – Vermont
A wonderful vacation home for a city family to enjoy the lake and mountains of Vermont. This home’s inspiration comes from the 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 but still spread out. A loft with space for 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 to the lake invites the outdoors in. Natural details in wood staircase and bannisters as well as the planked ceiling and elk horn chandelier continue the nature theme.
