Enduring Design Classics: Bin Pulls & Farm Houses

Just outside Stockholm, Wisconsin, a modern custom farmhouse built amidst 40 meandering acres cuts the dramatic skyscape with the gentleness of a butter knife.  Simple in design yet high in function, this weekend getaway pays tribute to  the Swedish influenced mid-western sensibility of the region. Clean lines, nuetral colors, large windows, natural materials, high ceilings and built in cabinetry add to the design’s efficient grace.

Horton Brasses Nickel Pulls & Knobs

With 27 years of marriage under their belts, Jay and Jennifer Olson-Goude presently use the house as a weekend retreat. Eventually, they will retire there, along with their Golden-Child, Otto.

Homeowners Jennifer and Jay Olson-Goude designed their future retirement home in conjunction with Todd Hansen of Albertsson Hansen Architecture.  The custom blonde wood inset Shaker style kitchen cabinets were crafted by Ted Nolen of Total Home Cabinetry (Hudson, WI) and feature Horton Brasses’ hardware as the finishing touch.  Horton Brasses bin pulls and knobs are throughout the house,  contributing to the streamlined yet inviting aesthetic.

Dining Room Storage / Built-in Buffet


Built-in storage throughout the house keeps things neat and tidy.

Jay, who works in architecture, was looking online for bin pulls for cabinet drawers when “an internet search led us to Horton Brasses, who’s products looked much nicer than the many cheaper options out there. “ Jennifer works in the financial services industry. It is no wonder that between the two of them, they outfitted their home with an eye for detail and value.

For a complete look at the house, from construction (Hokeness Construction) to the breathtaking countryside, visit Jay’s online album.

Gasp! Gorgeous. Thanks for the pictures, Jay!
