Mad River Barn

The Mad River Barn Design

Meet Joanne Palmisano, the designer for the Mad River Barn. We found Joanne after browsing photos on Houzz (similar to Pinterest, for those unfamiliar with it). When we were daydreaming about the Inn we wanted to purchase, we were drawn to photos of properties with what we would call a "rustic farmhouse with an edge of industrial" design. Many of the photos we liked were contributed by Joanne. After we bought the Mad River Barn, we sent her an email, and the rest is history! 

Joanne is responsible for all aspects of the aesthetic design at the Mad River Barn, from the furnishings and fixtures, to the paint colors. She is immensely talented! You can check out her website at www.JoannePalmisano.com

 Then, take a walk through the Barn and check out some of her work:

The ladder lights are positioned above the Farmhouse tables in our Dining Room. Made using outdoor string lights and a recycled wooden latter, they make a stunning centerpiece for our community tables.

This Barn Door sign welcomes guests at Inn Reception. It is one of our most photographed pieces! It is from Vermont, and its crackly paint surface was protected from chipping using three coats of epoxy resin. 

This unusual light fixture resides in the game room. Yes, it is made out of old springs. In fact, out of old BED springs that were still in use when we acquired the Mad River Barn. Trust us, they serve a much better purpose as a light fixture!

 This sign welcomes guests to the Restaurant & Pub. Look closely and you notice the letters are made from old plumbing handles, most of which were found here at the Barn during renovation. 

 Reclaimed wood plays an important role in Joanne's design here at the Barn. The wooden tables in the Dining Room and Pub were made from pieces removed from the Farmhouse during renovation. 

 We threw virtually nothing away. Even small scraps of wood were re-used (in this case, as towel hangers).
