A Modern Barn House in the English Countryside

Two miles from the Coast in the English county of Suffolk stands a beautifully renovated barn house with light-filled interior spaces and minimalistic design. The barn house was recently remodeled and extended into a four-bedroom house featuring an understated modern material palette with simple detailing.

The simple barn-like shape of the house has a façade clad in rough-sawn cedar boards. This rustic element does not continue inside where the spaces are crisp and white, modern and minimalistic.

The kitchen cabinets are painted in a classic dark blue shade which is paired with a thick wooden worktop. The island with bar seating helps to create a social space that’s perfect for family life or dinner parties.

Next to the kitchen is a minimalistic dining area with built-in seating decorated with light blue and gray cushions and a round wooden table. Extra dining chairs can easily be added to provide more seating space.
