Top Three Trends in Mountain Modern Home Designs
It's all about the experience
Being surrounded by the majestic outdoors provides an exciting challenge; how does one style their interiors to work in concert with, rather than compete with, the surrounding views?
Our philosophy has always been to bring the outdoors into your interior spaces, utilizing natural materials from our neighboring landscape. If you’re looking for your next Mountain Modern home or thinking of revamping your home’s living spaces, here are three top trends to consider.
Love to host? Then this one’s for you. Friends and family love to gather around a spacious kitchen island or sit and sip a glass of wine. When you opt for a floor plan with a spacious, open-concept living, dining, and kitchen area, you create an inviting atmosphere that eases movement around your home. Although decorating may feel tricky to balance, Pacific Northwest antique oak, natural steel, and local granite are key materials recommended to design the Great Room of your dreams.
While your common area is the heart and soul of the house, we cannot forget about one of the most personal rooms—your sanctuary for rest. Embracing natural light in your bedroom is one of the best ways to bring in the outdoors year-round. Whether you incorporate French doors or floor-to-ceiling windows, each option can bathe your room with copious amounts of lights and views. This is a timeless design feature that will never go out of style.
Just like we all must define greatness in our own personal terms, here is how we define a luxurious primary bathroom. Outfit your space with high-end finishes, a soaker tub, his and hers sinks, and an oversized shower with the option of making it multi- functional. And when possible, the incorporation of panoramic windows brings you closer to nature. Additional features could consist of turning your shower into a steam room or equipping it with heated flooring for those winter mornings. Installing his and hers closet, complete with a floating island perfect for accessories, jewelry, belts, ties, and travel necessities, are a great way to balance space, luxury, and functionality.
