Two horse barns, one with living quarters.
Two horse barns, one with living quarters.

by Raquel Lynn

Most Stable Style readers would be happy to live in a barn. Of course when I discovered this project completed by General Assembly, I knew I had to share it here. They gave an old horse barn new life while preserving some of its original history. The end result is a barn that’s rustic, modern, and welcoming.

The barn belongs to actress Amanda Seyfried. The property also has a main house and second barn for horses and other animals. You can take a look at the main house featured on Elle Decor if you are would like. It’s beautifully decorated, but I couldn’t help but fall in love with this unique guest house.

General Assembly re-used as much as the existing barn as possible. The original stall doors were refinished and are now used as bedroom doors. Glass was inserted behind the blackened steel to offer privacy for the guests.

White walls were added to brighten up the barn along with a twelve and a half foot wide Nanawall door to let in natural light.

The black and white tiles in the bedrooms are beautiful and functional. They add to the design aesthetic and also are equipped with an in-ground heating system – perfect for a chilly day in New York. The barn also has a wood burning stove to keep things cozy.
