Henry Island rustic-bedroom

Henry Island

This project occupies a low ridge at the tip of a small island and is flanked by a beach to either side. The two beaches suggested the image of the two-faced god Janus who was the inspiration for the design. The house is flanked by two large porches, one facing either beach, which offer shelter from the elements while inviting the visitors outdoors. Three buildings are linked together to form a string of buildings that follow the terrain. Massive concrete columns lend strength and support while becoming part of the language of the forest in which the house is situated. Salvaged wood forms the majority of the interior structure and the floors. Light is introduced deep into the house through doors, windows, clerestories, and dormer windows. The house is organized along two long enfilades that order space and invite long views through the building and to the landscape beyond.

This handrail is made from salvaged fir. The stain is custom and was done on site.

the one going down the stairs is a flushmount? I know the one in the ceiling is.

Looks like a flushmount to me. It's just on the wall, instead of the ceiling. The one on the ceiling is actually semi-flush. Oh, the technicalities!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to A Different Kind Of Beach House
A simple bedroom is the perfect example of a sleeping area that might be found in one of these homes. Its planked walls and ceiling, simple bedding and view at the foot of the bed invite a restful night's sleep. The color palette of white, red and blue add to the rustic and casual setting.
Slanted ceilings: This is how to make a converted attic space feel like somewhere you want to bed down.
Becky Harris added this to Get the Look: Modern Rustic
4. Planking is not just for B-list celebs: Shiplap walls, eaves and ceilings add to the rustic cozy charm, while ticking stripes and light hues keep things updated and clean.
Susan Stieglitz added this to Shiplap
Both the walls and vaulted ceiling in this bedroom are covered with shiplap paneling.
Textiles Adding color with striped bed linens, cushions and a throw creates a different vintage feel. In this case, the look is more fisherman's cottage than beach shack.
