Barns and Blogpodium

Good Morning Sunshine….

What a great week of weather we are having here in Toronto.  Hot, clear and totally uncharacteristic of May in Ontario, but I’m not complaining.  Last night I spent the evening with Barbara of hodge:podge, Nancy of Marcus Design and Beatrice of A Crafty Bee who are in town for Blogpodium tomorrow!  It was so nice to get to know them a little better, and they are just as nice in person as they seem on their blogs.

Today I’m featuring a great barn conversion by Steven Gambrel that I came across on the Southern Living website.  It’s pretty great….

I love the use of unexpected colour combined with rustic/natural elements like leather and wood. Such a cozy looking space!

I cannot believe that Blogpodium is finally here. I will have lots to share next week about it.  Can’t wait to see/meet everyone who is attending!

  1. I think the concept of barn conversion to living space for people as opposed to livestock is fascinating, but in the Maritimes farmers have let those old hip roofed barns deteriorate so badly over the years that I would think it would be a massive undertaking to restore them to the point of then converting them to living spaces…..fabulous idea and I would love to be able to do it IF I could find one that wasn’t in such decay.

  2. Wow, this is amazing. I love the doors!

  3. What a cool space – love the colour and the high ceilings!
