One of my favorites...
...from the pages of Veranda, is this Napa residence designed by architect, Howard Backen, of Backen, Gillam & Kroeger Architects. The ceiling height, large sliding-steel barn doors and use of natural finishes in stone and reclaimed wood give way to a compelling mix of rustic and refined. The home blends seamlessly with it's environment. Elementally comfortable, with a presence of history. I can't tell, by my tear sheets, how long I have been saving this as inspiration...but I still admire it, in a timeless sense. Could see this type of home, so easily, in a Chilmark setting.
Interior design, by the ever-talented and eco-conscious Barbara Colvin - adore her beautiful use of unbleached, undyed natural flax linen. Barbara spent more than thirty years as a textile and product designer, and she posesses an amazing collection of 19th and 20th century linens, collected throughout her entire life.
