Making a house a home.

Paris-based decorator India Mahdavi transforms a historic barn in Connecticut in to an exquisite family home; blending modern and vintage furniture with original rustic features.

The large living area, which boasts a compilation of neutral tones, is the most captivating room in the entire home. Mahdavi groups a pair of sofas, twin screens and cocktail tables, all of her own design, to create a clean, near perfect symmetry. Complimented with touches of added personality, through the inclusion of vintage Andre Arbus lounge chairs, Jean Royere armchairs and a red metal floor lamp, also from Royere.

Elsewhere, bespoke cabinetry forms a unique vocal point in the kitchen, enhanced with subtle dashes of colour provided by the stools by Bassam Fellows and the Eames side chairs by Vitra. The suspension light by Campana Brothers livens up the kitchen, adding a rustic feel, in keeping with the barn itself.

The double-height dining room, occupying the original, largest space of the barn, is furnished with a custom-made table by India Mahdavi, complimented with clean white walls and framed photograms and vintage screens by Don Harvey.

One of many outbuildings in the property, the games room, contains a wealth of past-time practices, all elegantly encased with a full-length wall mural from Sol LeWitt; adding a splash of colour and personality to reflect the fun-loving identity of the room.
