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.

The paint color was custom, but you may find Benjamin Moore's White Dove to be close. We don't have record of the sconces.

They were made by Northstar Woodwoorks. I think these are 8 or 9-foot doors.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A large, wooden artifact above the bed seems like the perfect finishing touch in this space.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to What's at the Foot of Your Bed?
Love watching t.v. as you drift off to sleep but just don't have the room or wall space for an armoire or to mount that flat screen? The foot of the bed comes to the rescue once again. With just the press of a button your t.v. will gracefully rise up from the cabinet in which it's hidden. When you're all done, press the button and the t.v. becomes a nice cabinet, once again.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Your Mission, Should You Decide to Accept It...
With the press of a button, in true spy-world fashion, a hidden television will rise from an unassuming cabinet making it readily available for viewing from a nearby seating group. This high-tech t.v. most likely even pivots for lazy Saturday morning viewing in bed.
Lily Gahagan added this to Window Seats: For Winter or Whenever
With glass on all three sides, it's almost like you're outdoors, yet still nice and toasty within.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to 11 Area Rug Rules and How to Break Them
However, a smaller rug can also be very effective placed at the foot of a bed, bringing in just a little layer of interest and pattern. Here the rug width should extend beyond the width of the bed to feel balanced.
Erin Lang Norris added this to An Ode to Owls Around the House
Although I'm not typically a fan of the vintage kitschy owls our parents or grandparents seemed to be so fond of, this particular piece seems to strike a chord with me. Perhaps it's the clean white walls or the mimicking woodwork, or maybe it's simply the piece's large scale, but I find this wooden owl to be so very cool.

Usual rule is to have under bed & extended out at least 18". a smaller rug can also be very effective placed at the foot of a bed, bringing in just a little layer of interest and pattern. Not under bed: should extend wider than the bed to feel balanced.

We like this "schoolhouse" aesthetic better than straight Arts & Crafts: less fanciful, more elegant and practical, higher ceilings. The dark wood trim and floor look invitingly warm with the matte-white horizontal wall planking and gloss-white ceiling planking. Planking is nice and tight, perhaps with slightly beveled edges. Window in interior wall is intriguing and echoes transom. We like the schoolhouse lighting fixtures as well. To us, this style would be most cohesive with a flat, non-trayed ceiling. We have more pictures from this firm to discuss.
