Hannah and Paul Catlett trusted long-time friend, architect Matthew Hufft to build their home on three acres outside of Springfield, Missouri and he didn’t let them down. Hufft transformed their vision of a traditional farmhouse into a sleek porch house with uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside.
The master bedroom is a perfect example of the Catletts’ take on American modern with solid walnut furniture and a sliding barn door that leads to the bathroom. Airy windows framing the hallway let Hannah and Paul look outside to “see what our boys are destroying.”
Paul built the walnut bed with the help of Hannah’s two brothers, however, we like the simple look of Modernica's Case Study Alpine bed, also in walnut. Like the Catlett’s version it is made in the USA. From $3,495
The family also built the nightstand, but we found a similar version: the solid walnut Darwinizm side table by IZM. There is a special slot for your reading material so the tabletop stays tidy. $1,150
Designed by Michele de Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina for Artemide in 1987, the Tolomeo Classic LED strikes a delicate note amidst the hearty wood furnishings. $530
A neutral duvet cover ensures years of use, like the Catletts’ Estrella duvet cover and shames in Mineral from Inhabit. From $80
Inhabit's Pussy Willow pillows in ice have a basic, stylish pattern and contrast well with the somber gray and brown tones. From $45
Paul’s American flag was a gift from one of his clients at the hair salon he owns. A flag should be fairly easy to procure at thrift stores or eBay, but this vintage stock from Urban Outfitters is a quick pick. $389
