This newly built, lovely Lake Minnetonka home was placed on the lot in order to take advantage of the beautiful view of the lake. To make better use of the home's lower level space, homeowners commissioned designers to create a new pool, a spa, walking paths, a patio for outdoor entertaining and retaining walls to help control the flow of rainwater away from their home and new outdoor space.
The natural textures of this home create a lovely understated country design. A mulched yard and rock walls add natural texture. Red siding sections and blue shutters and door add pops of color. The polished wood of the entryway serves as the focal point with a rock bed and concrete walkway leading to it.
The details of this Rocky Mountain getaway really tie the space together. The couple wanted to incorporate the traditional, rustic cabin style into their home, but they also loved the more modern aspects of design, so they asked Trista to merge the two. With accessories such as antlers, natural wood and natural materials such as leather, the decor is fairly rustic, but Trista adds pops of the modern, like the printed Roman shades and the bold, natural blue to compliment the color of the beautiful colorado sky.
