Our Belgian midcentury project introduces a modern European take on a 3,100 sq foot gambrel colonial-style home primely located in Rhode Island. This house had been built in the 80s, filled with a lot of builder grade finishes and half finished renovations leaving a rather fragmented starting point for our clients. This project’s intention was an effort to sew the fragments back together whilst creating a greater connection – a sense of purpose for the home and its stewards. Here we wanted to go back to the beginning — working with natural earthen materials crafted by local artisans from tadelakt, to fine cabinet making, furniture joinery, hand forged iron work and detailed custom upholstery.
This home by Moore House Design is so tactile and filled with such exquisite fabrics and finishes. You don’t need drama with colour or pattern in a situation like this. The materials selected are dramatic in their simple beauty. Photos: Erin Little.
