design owner personality How Can Design Describe the Personality of the Owner

There are hundreds if not thousands of parameters shaping our design, parameters that from the first glance can describe the personality of the owner inhabiting the design line.  Our existence gravitates around an unique inner factor. Our relationships and our unique qualities, perspective, interpretation and dreams are influence by thousands, millions of parameters and yet all are subdued to that inner factor: our personality.

Looking back: A bright office

It’s time for a trip down memory lane! I mentioned earlier this week that I’ll be sharing some of the rooms in our home over the years over the next few weeks. I LOVE before and after pics and I love looking back at this space because I think it’s one of the biggest transformations I’ve ever completed in this house.

Treating old architectural forms as modules, many owners who have turned barns into homes add a second or third structure such as a rustic log cabin to their property to expand the idea. Barns also come with land offering viable opportunities for homeowners to add both lush gardens and small scale farming to their home life. Re-imagining a barn as a home presents the perfect chance to construct a circle of self-sustained living.
