A Rust & Cognac Inspired Mid-Century Bungalow

When designer Adriana Pietropaolo began working on this mid-century bungalow sitting on a vast 1.3 acres of land in the country, she and her client had big ideas for transforming the space into a dream home. After spending years living in a much smaller home, the homeowner, who had recently acquired the property, came to her for help renovating and furnishing the house from top to bottom.

 

He wanted the design to reflect his love of mid-century modern furniture, accommodate his many outdoor hobbies, and provide a relaxing and inviting entertaining space for friends and family to gather.

Adriana got to work on a complete top-to-bottom renovation, including millwork, decorating, and styling throughout the entire home. The result is the perfect balance of bold and cozy, making for an idyllic bachelor pad with serene views outside the windows. A large open-concept space, including a living room, bar, dining area, and kitchen, greets you when you walk in the door and is the heart of the home.

A Statement-Making Living Room

A white brick modern fireplace sets the tone for the living room and centers the room. Adriana designed the mantle using thick solid oak planks cut from a reclaimed beam cladding the formerly painted MDF mantle to create a more contemporary look. The homeowner’s love of orange inspired the rust and cognac color palette, which adds some warmth to the modern architecture. 

Every well-designed room needs a little drama, and this mid-century chandelier draws the eye up and creates just the right amount of tension in this space. 

A Modern + Bold Bar Area

One challenging thing about designing open-concept floor plans is creating a cohesive palette that flows from space to space while distinguishing one area from the next. This home’s living room opens to the kitchen, dining room, and bar area, making it the ultimate gathering and entertaining spot. Brick on the island carries through from the fireplace, while the Mondrian-inspired geometric mural makes a statement. 

Although the bar area got a significant makeover, Adriana kept the original layout and painted the existing red cabinets, allowing for more breathing room in the budget.

A Cozy Plastered Primary Suite

There’s just something about plaster paint in a bedroom that feels fresh and timeless, and we love how much texture it adds to the muted color palette in this primary suite. A bold chandelier moment speaks to the lighting in the living room, and a cognac-colored sofa brings some cozy seating to the foot of the bed. Opting for sconces rather than lamps on your bedside table is a great way to add some unexpected interest and create a more custom look, and these gold Workstead pieces couldn’t be more fit for completing the look here.
