Searching for a simpler, more solitary life, Lila Walton purchased the remains of a 17th-century threshing barn in rural Norfolk, England. Now newly renovated, the 1,300-square-foot barn retains a traditional look, familiar to a countryside home. The New York Times takes us inside the open floor plan, and shows off details like the French glass windows that replaced the original barn door (above) and the iron spiral stair to Walton's painting studio...
The kitchen features an Aga Cooker, a large English stove that can also be used to heat the home.
The master bedroom. The home is full of rich colors and patterns that add to its coziness. For the full story, An English Barn With American Flourishes and more pictures in the slideshow, visit The New York Times.
