When it comes to describing my personal taste, 'rustic' is generally not an adjective that comes to mind. But as with many things, I often surprise myself with the wide range of my own tastes.There's something about autumn that always just feels like a perfect fit for this style. The seasonal harvest beckons a return to things that are more natural and uncomplicated. Raw wood brings warmth on cooler days and brings the feeling of getting back to nature, even if you happen to be indoors.
This country home designed by architect Russell Groves was created with a de-constructed barn from Canada which was transported to Connecticut and then transformed into a modern rustic retreat. The combination of the original rough beams with clean architectural details and modern furnishings gives the space a completely unique feeling with a style that you can't quite place in any particular time period.
