Decatur, Texas Barndominium
The front porch features alternating white and chocolate brown theme on the beams, exterior walls, windows and main door. The stark contrast of light and dark neutral colors not only exudes stability but also prepares you for the rustic feeling that awaits you inside.
Dark brown floors, light gray ceilings and walls, and white bedroom doors combine to create a cool interior that provide a welcome refuge from the heat outdoors.
The foyer leads to the heart of this magnificent home.
The Great Room
With an open space design, you can set up the living room and the dining room wherever or however you please. A large ceiling fan hangs strategically to provide full coverage. Wide windows offer a view of the fantastic outdoor landscape. Pin lights provide ample lighting without ruining the quiet ambiance.
Looking for some privacy? The open space design gives you the freedom to place temporary dividers to create your own private nook.
From the great room, you have an unobstructed view of the well-equipped kitchen.
In keeping with the cool sophistication of the interior, the homey kitchen is accentuated with a silver two-door refrigerator, a microwave oven, a stove with exhaust, a garbage bin, overhead pendant lights, and an unobtrusive spotlight over the sink.
An island counter with a marble top serves as a divider between the kitchen and the Great Room. It comes in a lighter shade of gray than the cupboards and cabinets.
The marble counter-top matches the island, and the backsplash of textured bricks complete the vibe of a relaxed atmosphere.
From the kitchen, you can easily access the extra room.
The “Bonus” Room
This room has access to the utility room, so its usage is flexible. It can function as a storage for bedding, towels and curtains. You can also store extra furniture and boxes of memorabilia here. Or, if you’re having guests over, it can be converted into a transient bedroom.
The Utility Room
Stash your workshop tools and maintenance equipment in this space. Organization won’t be a problem thanks to the differently sized shelves and cabinets.
Yes, even the utility room is painted in the same cool hue of gray.
Providing a seamless color motif, the walls and ceiling in the master bedroom are also splashed in gray. The dark brown floor, white door and cabinets, and the chandelier provide subtle accents to break the monotony.
The Master’s Bedroom and Bath
For easy access, the Master Bath is just adjacent to the Master Bedroom.
Compact yet complete, it provides all the comforts befitting a master bedroom.
The white bathtub comes with black fixtures as well as a marble headboard for toiletries. It is bordered with wood-textured panels matching the frame of the shower’s glass door. Good plumbing allows for both hot and cold water.
The wall across the shower is lined with a wide mirror that can easily be shared by 2 people and also enhances the size of the room. Below this are two sinks with a marble countertop and cabinets underneath. There is ample lighting, thanks to overhead lights above the mirror.
On the other side of the house are two bedrooms. One is accessible through the Great Room, the other, via the foyer.
The colors in both bedrooms are consistent with the rest of the abode – cool gray with splashes of white.
Both bedrooms have wide windows to bring in light as well as the calming outdoor scene, Ceiling fans fixed with ambient light bulbs provide circulation and lighting.
Each bedroom also comes with huge cabinets with shelves and hanging bars.
Conveniently sandwiched between the two bedrooms is a hall bath.
This bathroom offers a pristine white bathtub against the backdrop of dark brown “aged” wood panels.
The black shower head and the water controls blend well with the paneling and add to the classy look of the space.
The mirror, sink and cabinets are an exact replica of those in the master’s bedroom, albeit on a smaller scale. Meanwhile, the flooring, of course, is dark brown.
