Algoma Retreat


What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here's a detail from over the front door. "This design came out of the functional, to provide cover from the snow without having to add a huge canopy element," Lamaster-Millett says. If you look back to the first image, you'll see that a line of trims continues from the overhang around the front of the house. As you scroll down further, you'll see how it relates to the beams in the master bedroom, giving a hint of what you'll see inside. "It goes back to a functional farmhouse aesthetic; like framing in a barn, it's beautiful because of how it functions," Lamaster-Millett says. This philosophy is an apt description for the entire home's design.More:Houzz Tour: Style and Surprise in the HamptonsHouzz Tour: A Modern Renovation in SeattleHouzz Tour: Open and Cozy Family Space5 Fantastic Homes With a Treehouse Feel

Although it's bolder than the rest of the home, the clients were completely on board with this paneled oak niche."I think it's a slightly modern, clean, but warm touch that counter-balances the traditional elements," says Herzog. The walls in this space are paneled with 10-inch-wide rift cut oak, stained in a blue/gray.
