A Modern Home Inspired by the Remains of a Barn

2 Comments

A Modern Home Inspired by the Remains of a Barn

The Hebron Home marks the inaugural house project by Benjamin Oliver AD and, for a first design, it’s impressive. The project began in 2011 when the land was purchased in Hebron, Connecticut with the remains of a barn. They chose to build a new home that preserved the legacy of what once was with a modern, New England barn-style residence for a homeowner that loves horses.

Both the interior and exterior’s surfaces are full of texture making for an authentic feel without giving it the feeling of having been decorated. It totally feels as if they retrofitted a barn and turned it into a home – not a brand-new home built from scratch.

Mixing industrial and modern with rustic touches throughout, the feeling of the home is both warm and inviting.

The interior feels bright and open with large windows and white finishes keeping the spaces light.

Sight lines from the master bedroom to the front of the house remain clear and open helping the spaces feel connected, as well as providing a sense of security.

Found elements are shown incorporated everywhere, like in the light fixture hanging above the stairs.

easiest fridge dill pickles

1 Comment and 3 Shares

easiest fridge dills, before

Every summer, I make a note on my Oh My God Good Vegetables Are Finally Here! cooking to-do list (what, you don’t keep one?) to post about how to make classic dill pickles. Every week they’re available, I pick up nearly a bucket of perfect-for-pickling kirby cucumbers from the Greenmarket for my cucumber-junkie family with the greatest intention of finally making good on this promise. And I never, ever do. It might be that the first couple times I tried, many years ago, my always-too-hot kitchen molded both jars, traumatizing me at the end of the jars’ incubation periods. It might be that because I live in NYC, when I want an insanely good sour pickle, I just go to The Pickle Guys on Essex Street or track down some from Guss’. Like bagels, killer soup dumplings, or Halal cart street meat, amazing pickles are in a category of food you have to be extremely driven and possibly cuckoo to make at home in NYC. I mean, I am, but apparently not enough.

kirby season
slice thin, even thinner than this

I make these instead. These are our go-to fridge pickle, and they are ludicrously easy. Do you have salt? Do you have vinegar? You’re set. They’re passable an hour later, excellent 6 to 8 hours later, and you can also enjoy them three weeks from now — though by then, we’ll be on our third batch.

you'll start with so much

The Abyss Table by Christopher Duffy for Duffy London

The Abyss Table by Christopher Duffy for Duffy London

The visuals on The Abyss Table are more than enough to make your jaw drop, which is no surprise given Duffy London’s history for clever, unforgettable designs. This time, Christopher Duffy is taking you straight to the depths of the ocean with a dramatic coffee table that will never cease being a conversation piece.

Pairing layers of wood and glass, the table becomes a geological cross section of the ocean, showing various depths.

After a trip to the glass factory and seeing how thick glass darkened the more layers added, much like the way the sea does as the ocean floor becomes deeper, Duffy used this effect to show a piece of the ocean’s bed. The team spent a year experimenting with sculpted glass, Perspex, and wood to achieve the three-dimensional model of a geological map with the final result being a mesmerizing, abyss-like, sculptural table.

The Abyss Table is made by hand upon order and is limited to an edition of 25. Each piece is made from sustainable materials.
