Ur­ban Coun­try

Modern Farmhouse Style - - Character Study -

A to­tal ren­o­va­tion turned this dreary barn into a dream home with fem­i­nine flair. Re­claimed wood sid­ing, un­usual win­dow shapes, and a hedge fence make this struc­ture a unique gem in Or­ange County, Cal­i­for­nia. “There’s an un­ex­pect­ed­ness to the home that feels fresh,” de­signer Lynn Pries says. “It’s more so­phis­ti­cated than a typ­i­cal coun­try house, and at the same time it’s a lot of fun.”
