Gallery: Drool Over this Stunning Burgundy Barn Renovation by Josephine...

This bathroom has a large shower and a tub for soaking. Although having no enclosure to the shower (aka, a wet room) might be considered sustainable in saving materials during renovation, but we don't see much in the way of water saving in this room. In an open shower space like this, it is also harder to keep the bather warm. A rain shower, and a large soak tub are not the best choices available. There is however natural materials for the flooring, and and the ceramic tile.

The renovation was completed by Josephine Interior Design, owned by the energetic and eclectic Josephine Gintzburger. Gintzburger previously worked in the fashion world, and she translated her skills to make interior spaces look their most flattering. She shows us that even an old barn in France’s wine country can be given a fresh and stylish feel by incorporating sustainable elements.

The kitchen features a long concrete island with a lowered seating area extending off the end. The island has open storage on one side for displaying dishware and appliances, and concealed storage on the opposite side.

Above the family room areas is an additional gathering space with amazing natural light coming in through large plate windows. We noticed that the consideration for natural light throughout the home has allowed Gintzburger to limit the use of artificial light.
