The owners of this reverse-story-and-a-half wanted to stun visitors upon entering. Built to showcase modern mountain design and custom materials, the goal was to combine luxury materials in unexpected ways while maintaining the cozy, relaxing feel of a home surrounded by trees in the mountains.
This project’s challenge was to incorporate dramatic features while not letting any one detail detract from the overall harmony of the home. Beautiful slabs of quartzite and large pieces of stone are worked seamlessly into the design.
Two large eight-foot statues flank a mirror at the end of the dining room, visible from the open entry. The walls lined with horizontal stripes of light-stained wood and dark metal provide a restful vibe. The living area is open with neutral tones to complement the custom metal tone fireplace and interior stone. The L-shaped kitchen has a center island that’s perfect for the cook to function and dramatic enough to wow guests. The island was topped with heavily veined quartz flowing over with a waterfall edge. All cabinets are richly stained dark wood that mimics the heavily treed landscape visible from the windows lining the back of the house.
Custom chandeliers act as art leading to the lower level. More large windows drench the lower level in natural light. The lower level bar boasts a four-screen television system on the back wall with extensive seating. Above the island is a mirrored, coffered ceiling that adds a dramatic impact. Multiple seating areas are designed for comfort, conversation and relaxation.

A true labor of love. The clients had been planning this home on private property for seven years when the design team was brought onboard. Taking their time to get the vision and budget right, they wanted to create a modern home that was not sterile and felt like a family home.
The overall goal for this custom home was to bring a sense of modern Prairie style, instilling a feeling of the past with common sense for the future. The homeowner emphasized the concept of a modern luxury hotel—warm and inviting with clean lines. The design team chose limestone and rift oak throughout the home to contrast each other in a warm, earth-tone feeling.
