A two-story country home in western Massachusetts was completely remodeled, inside and out, creating a Craftsman-styled residence. Natural wood abounds outside, in a fitting palette of forest green and red cedar, evoking the setting of field and forest; metal-clad windows with Arts-and-Crafts fenestration admit a flood of sunlight and copper gutters complete the glow.
The interior complements the first impression, with carefully trimmed wood beams and casings, a kitchen with stone countertops and stained-glass-fronted cabinetry, a sunny balustraded staircase, and wall surfaces in soothing shades. Extensive porches, both open and enclosed, link the home with its peaceful setting and invite relaxation and conversation.
