Along the hallway, a sliding barn door opens to a dining room with tall cabinets and a window seat that looks to the garden. “I knew immediately that a dining room for select holidays wouldn’t be practical,” Eve shares, noting that the high cabinets hide the office and art supplies, and the table is perfect for spreading out big projects. “If the project is ongoing, I can just close the barn doors and don’t have to see it.”
The bedrooms continue with variations of the themes used in the house. The master bedroom has a hint of East Coast elegance that Eve accentuated by adding a brick fireplace, and the wooden beams play on the mountain theme. The daughter’s sophisticated room combines the flair of New York’s SoHo neighborhood with the look of a horse tack room. The two boys wanted their room to have a modern feel, so Eve created a loft sleeping area for one son, and she reclaimed a storage area for the other son’s sleeping space.
“All the different rooms seem to go together,” Eve says. The reaction is just as she hoped. She finds her guests moving room to room, enchanted by the unexpected.
