Big Ideas for a Small Space
The large French doors at the back of the home directly across from the front entryway not only create a spacious feeling in the home, but also allow for cross breezes to blow through, offering cool relief on even the warmest July day. “When designing the house, I thought about how I wanted to experience things,” Bereznicki says.
The exterior of the octagonal bay window with the cupola at the top gives the appearance of a lighthouse, offering a charming nautical element, while the interior of the window brings a feeling of spaciousness to the room. The second level of the bay window in the master bedroom, along with the vaulted ceilings in the cupola, slightly mimics a ship’s prow.
Another design element that is as functional as it is beautiful is the stone chimney. Built by Lew French, who Bereznicki refers to as “the mason to the stars,” the stone structure is an impressive exterior piece of sculpture, which also happens to serve as the home’s chimney.
