Not long ago I was involved with the interior redecorating project of a post & beam home. It was all about aesthetics as the structure itself was totally sound. Post & beam to a decorator is what a blank canvas is to a painter: the end product is limited only by the imagination. Any style can be successfully effected in a timber frame home. We were after a timeless look; one that appeared effortless, yet classic. New paint, furniture and rugs were the initial plan. Once underway, the homeowners decided a new kitchen was also in order, but even that did not require any structural changes.
The home is a three bedroom, three and one-half bath structure with a solarium/breakfast nook off the kitchen, a great room, dining room, media room, entryway and three open lofts.

The redecorating of this house took approximately 18 months. It could not have been accomplished without the help of decorator Jude Golden (now Director of Sales & Marketing at Yankee Barn Homes) and a wonderful home decor store in Hanover, NH called C. Beston. Almost every piece of furniture, as well as rugs and artwork, came from this store.
I had a wonderful time working on this project. I hope you enjoyed seeing the results!
