“We used high-performing, sustainably sourced Accoya wood

The sheshed is something

Taking inspiration from the Scandinavian side of things, Shanty wanted to make sure the home incorporated a sustainable sensibility. “We used high-performing, sustainably sourced Accoya wood on the exterior of the house. We also have a custom-built bioethanol concrete fireplace that is smokeless, ventless, and eco-friendly

The Japandi design doesn’t end with the interiors, either. As Shanty explains, one of the most challenging processes of the renovation was executing the particular style outside of the home (custom millwork on the façade) and planning and implementing the landscape design (lush zen gardens and seamless indoor-outdoor transitions). “My goal was to create a home that embodied the Japandi design movement, and I wanted the exterior appearance to make a dramatic statement,” she says, of the hand-cut design. “I was most excited to change the home’s façade and landscaping.”

Another one of the designer’s favorite parts of this project? The she-shed, which can be used as an office, a yoga studio, or just a place to zen out. “I also love that by adding this structure, we created extra privacy to the home,” she says. “We kept the architectural elements of the she-shed cohesive with the rest of the home with its unique design and Accoya wood millwork.”
