Home Tour :: A Country House Goes Industrial Americana

When life is feeling a bit frenetic (as it certainly has been lately) I dream of escaping to the country, and enjoying a real book by the fire, cozied up in a worn leather chair. And in my dreams, the house I escape to just happens to look exactly like this…

A beautifully renovated 1907 schoolhouse in Pennsylvania, this home is the perfect setting for some classic Americana charm. I like, however, that the owners didn’t go overboard with predictability. Of course there are plenty of worn woods and industrial accents, but there are also some beautiful antiques and touches of brass that provide a sophistication too.

Perhaps what I love the most is that it truly feels like a loved and lived-in home. Nothing overly stately or contrived, just cozy and welcoming. While it’s not the style that I aspire to live in everyday, I would love for this to be my country escape. And, if I had to live in it everyday, you certainly wouldn’t find me complaining!

The use of the attic space is especially impressive – both the bath and the combo office/guest room…
