We have several ski trips planned this year now that Mr. Whitt is a bit older. A bit older, he's 3.5, but he's now old enough to go to ski school. Thank goodness! So I've had mountain homes on the brain lately. But not the mountain home that is covered in logs with animal heads in every direction you turn. But modern mountain homes, that prove you don't have to have a log house for it to be a mountain house.
I believe the perfect equation for a mountain home is a mix of materials. So mixing stone, wood and metal. But also when selecting your hardware, mix up the finishes. Remember that this is a mountain home so you want durability as number one, but also of importance is comfort. Nothing "too perfect" that it feels like you can't kick your feet up and relax.
By keeping your furnishings neutral you're able to focus on the true architecture of your space and your view outside. Because no matter where your mountain house is, the views have to be remarkable.
If you go back and look at the first photo you will notice that the ceiling and walls are almost the exact color. There is nothing wrong in doing that, but when you do that you must think about what color or stain you will be using. When you go with a more subdued color, like grey or a "worn" color, it is much less intrusive.
So who's up for a visit to go skiing and take in these amazing mountains?
Thanks for reading!
