Name: Deidre
Location: Riverfront in the Berkshires

This is my newly built home, transformed from a dilapidated, very sad house to a modified Whidbey Tumbleweed “tiny house” set at the river on a very quiet street in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.

It includes two bedrooms and a wonderful contemporary wood stove. Everything is crisp and clean; I used a warm Benjamin Moore Barren Plain gray paint throughout.

The master bedroom has a huge walk in closet (such an amazing feature which houses all my necessities..clothes, shoes, bags) and a 9 foot french slider leading out to a simple elegant landing (my wicker chair is perfect for morning coffee). It’s just a few steps down to a bluestone patio and stunning river views.

In the kitchen I chose black absolute honed granite counters, beautiful white shaker style cabinets with open shelving, stainless steel appliances and locally made and purchased products . I have tried to incorporate and support local design elements as well as mixing in some great Ikea, West Elm, Anthropologie and Toast UK items!

Thanks, Deidre!
