Residential Remodel Brings The Outdoors In
This residental remodel brings the outdoors “In”. Directions in Design was asked to “open up” the floor plan and make this a house for entertaining. The owner’s love and appreciation for history, art, animals and natural elements is evident in the finished interior. The design team removed the foyer, dining room, and living room walls to create a large, free-flowing, non-traditional living space.
Many of the materials used throughout the home are all natural. The fireplace is made of natural stone; the dining table was cut from a fallen tree from the owner’s Wisconsin farm. Directions In Design’s team designed the iron base that supports the table for 20. A step down sitting area is set off by animal skin and carpeting; four trees were replicated by Replications Unlimited to incorporate the support columns allowing the space to flow freely for visual and entertaining purposes. The owner’s love of family history is evident by the inclusion of painted, leaded doors inherited from a grandmother’s home. The front door is a work of art made in Colorado and the hickory flooring used throughout in a natural finish was taken from an old barn in Wisconsin.
The owner’s are crazy about their home and are delighted to enjoy it their children, grandchildren, and friends.
