The expansive mid-century modern style home was built in 1984 in Fairfield, Connecticut and features four bedrooms and five bathrooms, along with a separate two-bedroom, one-bathroom cabin in the wooded backyard. Stewart-Schafer brought their interior design talents to the project.
The property is an architectural gem, with contemporary glass walls and an indoor pool, and is situated on 18 acres of untouched forest overlooking a private scenic pond. In the main house, the interiors are tailored and sophisticated, exuding Scandinavian minimalism with Japanese-inspired undertones.
The design offers unexpected textures, bold contemporary artwork, custom-built furniture, and a tonal palette, resulting in a look that is timeless, fresh, and elegant.
The 700-square foot, one-bedroom, two-bathroom cabin serves as a private retreat and is completely surrounded by the untouched rough forest where guests can enjoy the secluded tranquility. The moody exterior of the cabin cleverly juxtaposes with the light and airy interior space.
The cabin embodies Scandinavian hygge with its clean lines, light wood, and natural textures. James and Christine designed the separate cabin as a guesthouse and incorporated smartly designed double beds that mimic a wooded tent.
