charming spaces: a wood frame

This house is a lakefront property in the Berkshires in western Massachusetts. Its design, based on a barn, is the work of Ritch Holben. This used to be three cottages and the new owners turned them into one big house. The photo shows a wood frame - of reclaimed wood - that immediately caught my attention. It outlines the skeleton of the house just perfectly. I also love the antique oak staircase. And yes, that is a Torroja Cross Chandelier by David Weeks Studio, inspired by the concrete forms of Eduardo Torroja's 1935 Zarzuela Hippodrome in Madrid.

Have a wonderful weekend!
