Bernstein removed some walls to open up the interior but didn't try to make it fit expected floorplans. These are the original wall and ceiling panels, brightened up with a coat of Benjamin Moore "White Dove." Note the spare use of ceiling lights. "The more projects I do over time, the fewer lights I put in the ceiling," Bernstein says. "We use lights to light something — a piece of art, a table." The stairs leading up have no risers, to let in more natural light. The floor is reclaimed oak siding from an 1870s Michigan barn.
