A chic and modern barn

The weekend is around the corner!  With that in mind I wanted to imagine having a weekend home like this in the woods, a place to disconnect from everything and just enjoy leisure time surrounded by family and friends.  It's good to dream, right?  It keeps you going and also makes you work harder.  Up until I saw this barn that was moved from Canada to Connecticut I had the belief that only certain houses can be moved. Never thought that something in this size and structure was possible.  Not even by pieces.  Russel Groves, the designer and architect responsible for the modern update of this barn, describes himself and firm as modernists.  But in this case, and because of the owners' lifestyle, he decided to preserve the warmth and charm of the space.  I think he nailed it!In the stunning living room (top image) sculptural chairs, slick ottomans and a over sized sofa with pillows juxtapose exceptionally well due to the muted colors.  Notice the column covered with rope- a very nautical and country touch?
An oversized Capiz-shell globe chandelier welcomes visitors from the double-height ceiling.
Love those windows.  This entire room is very inviting.  Right?
This barn must be huge judging by the different sitting areas. 
The set of flowers on top of that table looks like it's been naturally bloomed there.
That free standing pedestal tub looks like a cloud in an Autumn ski to me.
The staircase is a sculpture on its own, with glass and a modern bench that offset the massive use of wood.
