More to See: Living Large

February 18, 2019

It’s said that good things come in small packages, and that’s certainly true when it comes to the big design ideas packed into the tiny 1940s home featured in Living Large. We can’t get enough of Anne-Marie Barton’s inspiring details throughout this house, so we’re showcasing more of them, right here online.

Homeowner and designer Anne-Marie Barton turned the main floor’s second bedroom into a music room. A large window and custom built-in cabinets make the space look and feel light-filled and spacious. Jackson & Leroy added timeless trim details and paneling that foster the room’s classic charm.

Greens play beautifully against the living room’s dark walls. Barton displayed a frameless piece of art on a brass easel for a shot of drama.

To add instant architectural detail, Barton created applied-molding panels that she filled them with a charming wallpaper by Harlequin.

“Details are so import in small homes,” Barton says. She rejected everyday light switches in favor of brass vintage versions that charm the décor.

Mindful of the galley kitchen’s limited space, Barton stacked the refrigerator and freezer drawers and then integrated them using cabinet panels that help to minimize their visual bulk.

In the master bedroom, Barton extended the paisley wall covering onto the ceiling. The treatment adds eye-catching detail and makes the walls appear taller.

Barton created a pin board area behind the master bedroom’s door for easy display of drawings, photos and favorite art pieces.

The home’s architectural charm extends to the side yard where the paved drive leads from a separate garage to the side entry. A new dutch door opens to an area behind the kitchen.

Brass-framed open shelves add pizzazz and easy-to-access storage to the small galley kitchen.
