Chester County Barn Conversion

This spectacular project by the Old Village Design Studio is to be featured in an upcoming edition of
Elle Decor magazine!

The Old Village Design Studio™ recently created a spectrum of custom, specialty finishes for our client in Chester County. This barn-to-living space conversion features a soft, bleached effect on the pillowed antique oak floors, a lighter "palomino" stain for the 2 story bedroom cabinetry, and a fumed oak effect on the wall panels.

These custom, reactive stains bring out the warmth and subtle details of the wood in this one-of-a-kind fine home.

See more of the amazing and unique finishes the Old Village Design Studio can create for you.

'The challenge, of course, was to invest new construction with a sense of intimacy.'' Hamilton’s decor brings in the life. Her approach: “Big with small, hard with soft—that’s design.” The wife’s directive was just as simple. “The house needs to be sanguine, comfortable, and durable,” she recalls telling her designer. “I wanted warmth and coziness with natural materials and textures, but I don’t like pattern.” So there are shearling rugs and nubby carpets underfoot, and acres of linen, raw silk, and canvas to soften the expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass. Milk paint gives the walls some patina. Cloud-shaped light fixtures float playfully above the master bed.'

We created a number of special treatments for this home including a soft wood wash for the antique oak floor shown above. Some of our work is shown below.
