2017 ARDA - Custom Homes - Royal Oaks DesignFarmhouse Living Room
The client’s coastal New England roots inspired this Shingle style design for a lakefront lot. With a background in interior design, her ideas strongly influenced the process, presenting both challenge and reward in executing her exact vision. Vintage coastal style grounds a thoroughly modern open floor plan, designed to house a busy family with three active children. A primary focus was the kitchen, and more importantly, the butler’s pantry tucked behind it. Flowing logically from the garage entry and mudroom, and with two access points from the main kitchen, it fulfills the utilitarian functions of storage and prep, leaving the main kitchen free to shine as an integral part of the open living area.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
3. Designer Kieran Liebl says she pulled from her clients’ coastal New England roots when designing this new Shingle-style home in Minnesota. The living room features the layout and amenities of an open, contemporary home but showcases details often seen in classic coastal houses, including a beamed ceiling, stone fireplace surround and ocean-inspired colors. Glass fishing floats, vintage maps and other coastal decor reinforce the New England theme.
