I think today’s home tour just might be the perfect blend for both the husband and wife. If you watch those house hunting shows on T.V., you’ve probably noticed the man typically defers to the wife’s desires when it comes to choosing a new home. Not always, but a majority of the time. Today’s charming car barn by Patrick Ahearn Architect has something for both parties!
An open concept floor plan contains plenty of charm and style with accents of red and blue. I’m a huge fan of bead board, shiplap, board and batten – really any type of architectural treatment or trim in a home. I think a great way of adding “warmth” to white spaces is to add custom elements like this living room. The rustic beams and wall of windows are an added bonus.
Cozy quilts, gingham checks, and a striped nubby rug add texture and visual appeal.
The living room opens into the kitchen, with an airy loft overhead.
The floor plan is perfect for family get-togethers or entertaining friends.
Gorgeous wood floors add a rich element to the vaulted rooms.
How adorable is this arched doorway to a cozy sleeping room? Pretty adorable, right?
Red accentuates the master bedroom with its beautiful four-poster bed.
Now comes the man cave part of the car barn! Leather recliners pair up in front of the bar to watch T.V. The brick floor and beamed ceiling put the crowning touch on this space that needs to be worthy of housing vintage vehicles.
So what do you think? Does this car barn house the ultimate man cave? All I know is, I’ll take that powder blue car!
My hunch is that the car barn is used as a guest house on a larger piece of property with an expansive home, but I’d be happy to live there year-round.
