Let these designs provide inspiration on how to incorporate barn doors as decorative yet functional pieces in your home.
RECLAIMING THE COMFORTABLE BEDROOM
For the master bedroom, the designers, Courtney St. John and Amy Casey, aimed to create a comfortable environment that wouldn’t compete with the views. They paired a quilted-leather chair by Arteriors with a stump-like accent table from Inside Out Home Furnishings and Design; custom bedding is made with Kravet fabrics. Home builder Ted Leach fashioned the barn door out of reclaimed wood. (Tour the home.)
A COLORFUL ADDITION
Part of the addition, the sitting room brings together a playful mix of patterns and colors, as in the floor cushions from West Elm. The homeowners’ antique settee was refreshed with a Schumacher fabric. The antique brass table is from C.A.I. Designs, and the Sprig light fixture is from The Urban Electric Co. in Charleston, South Carolina. (Tour the home.)
AN UPDATED EDITION
Interior designer Erin Iba worked with builder Brian Gillette to update the home, including adding steel-and-glass barn doors to separate the study from the living room. The black Crawford cabinet is by Jonathan Adler, and the marble coffee table is by RH. Leather stools by Cisco Home rest on Flor carpet tiles. (Tour the home.)
The great room fireplace features a custom-fabricated darkened-steel surround crafted by Fabworx. A ladder ascends to a sleeping loft, while barn doors lead to a guest bathroom on one side and a hallway to the master suite on the other. (Tour the home.)
