Metallics aren’t something that’s typically seen in home design and architecture, but the Dutchess House No. 1 by Grzywinski+Pons went bold with the metallic silver facade and colored accents. Located in Millerton, New York, the home sits on the edge of lush greenery with a contemporary cottage feel. But Dutchess is a modern take on the cottage style, with vibrant yellow accents and wooden areas as well.
Once inside, the design gets soft and somewhat muted with neutrals of all shades and simple fixtures and hardware for things like the stair railing and other design elements. Somehow the less is more concept translates nicely indoors, and makes the outside seem a lot less involved.
There are plenty of other design features that really cater to the client and their needs– including a space that’s off and away from the main house for out of town guests (like parents) as well as the potential to rent out a guest cottage for a short period of time.
