The hilltop perched house is all about land and panoramic views down its 150 rolling acres and out across 72 square miles of Lake Winnipesaukee. And this was one of the factors that Ann and Jerry Calvert wanted us to work with - a color clean house that let the landscape and guests showcase the 'color' and for the living spaces to be more background.
The mid-house open air gallery that leads into the farmhouse kitchen or out and onto the veranda for amazing views.
The living area was done in hues of cream & taupe, with accent pillows of dark brown and animal prints. A wine barrel stave chandelier is suspended mid room while wood framing, a massive stone fireplace and magnificent views anchor the room.
Gothic benches and a series of antique botanical prints invite you to sit and linger in the open air gallery.
The white palette gives the kitchen a feeling of spaciousness and provides a perfect backdrop for Ann's antique ironstone collection. Off the kitchen is a small pub (not shown) and is my favorite room in the house! I hunted down a fabulous collection of wine openers in England for it.
