Barn conversion inspiration

Posted on Fri, 16 May 2008 by KiM

Penny wrote us recently with what I’d have to say is the toughest request yet: “In the next few months, I am going to begin renovating a big barn on my property in France to turn into a “great room” (kitchen/living room). I have been trying to collect photos from magazines with modern kitchens/living rooms in renovated barns, but I have only come across a few. Do you have any such photos that you could post on your blog?” The simplest answer to Penny’s question is no. But what I did find are photos of lofty spaces that are multi-purpose, that might help with ideas on layout. Penny – are you ever lucky! A barn conversion would be a blast! Hope this helps get your creative juices flowing.

Can’t wait to see the finished barn! Great finds Kim considering we are very light on barn images 🙂

I just found your blog, I love it. Do you have any recommendations for places to look at different painted focal walls?

Thanks Cara! Looks like another search for us Kim.

wonderful finds kim (is it ok to go by first name? haha) .. whenever i step into a large old barn my mind always starts to go wild with what you could do with the place… i am sure penny will end up with something wonderful.. oh.. and penny.. if you want a strong worker.. i would love an excuse to head back to france for a while.. good luck!
