Today’s featured home on BarndominiumLife.com is Monique Gros’ beautiful Louisiana barndominium. It has so much charm and so many fantastic details, we can’t wait to show you everything it has to offer. Checking out this wonderful example of what can be done with a little bit of design and a unique viewpoint is a great way to get ideas for your own barndominium.
One of the first things you might notice about this Louisiana barndominium is its amazing country-style charm. The little details like the barn door trim designs on the sides add so much to the overall feel of this home and we think this is exactly what a barndominium like this is perfect for. We also love the large awning over the porch which is perfect for spending time under on those warm Louisiana nights.
When you design the exterior of a barndominium, it is very important that you think about texture. Because of the all-steel designs of these buildings, it can be easy to end up without very much contrast. The brick on the bottom third of this Louisiana barndominium is absolutely stunning and one of the things that we think really separates this home from others like it.
We can’t talk about the beauty and splendor of this Louisiana barndominium without talking about how amazing the actual property is. Being on a lakefront like this is one of the most incredible things you can do for yourself and your home. We also think that the design of this Louisiana barndominium is perfectly suited for the pastoral setting it is in and adds such a nice, nostalgic touch to the scenery.
The outside of this Louisiana barndominium is incredibly charming but the interior has just as much magic and tasteful design. We absolutely love the loft-style upper level and the flooring in the living area. This gives it that rustic feel that is so important with a home like this without making it feel too old-fashioned or out-of-date at all. We also love the continuation of the brick from the exterior that follows into the interior and creates a beautiful, well-rounded look.
The interior living area ceiling in this Louisiana barndominium is a work of art in and of itself. With large beams running across the entirety of the area, there is a great use and enhancement of the space that really makes it feel like it is as grand as it should be. We also absolutely love the natural wood of the ceiling which is yet another use of texture that is very well done.
In the kitchen, there is even more beautiful texture work as well as a very tasteful change in the color scheme. The amazing tile backsplash as well as the modern appliances make this kitchen look a little more contemporary and up-to-the-minute, which is a great change of pace from the rest of the charming interior design. However, that amazing floor is still in place in the kitchen, which makes the whole area feel incredibly well-rounded and cohesive. This kind of attention to detail is essential when building a home and this Louisiana barndominium does it so incredibly well.
The kitchen island and the open concept of this floor plan is a great way to make the most of a small space and create something that is truly unique and wonderfully connected and social. Plus, we absolutely love the light fixture over the island and how it combines a modern design with some of the more rustic materials used throughout the rest of this Louisiana barndominium.
The upstairs bedroom is located in the attic and we just love this idea due to its efficiency and the fact that the designers of this Louisiana barndominium were able to make great use of the space in the downstairs area. There is also a wonderful change in the flooring with a switch to hardwood that we think adds a lot of warmth to this bedroom. There is also a continuation of the same ceiling type which, just like the flooring in the kitchen, creates a wonderful connection to the rest of the house.
The bathroom in this Louisiana barndominium, which is also connected to the upstairs bedroom, is a beautifully contrasted space from the rest of the home. With a light, airy feel and two vanities, there is enough space in this bathroom for everyone to get their morning routine done without getting on top of one another.
There is also a shower room downstairs in the laundry room, which is an incredibly clever and unique way to make the most of your space and make sure all of your needs are met. We also love the divider between the laundry area and the shower, which adds a nice detailed touch to the space.
