For the renovation, the clients' desire was to strike a balance between mountain-rustic and modern, so they kept the exposed beams, wood ceiling and walls to bring the rustic look into the design. They modernized the space by adding sleek, white cabinets and black countertops. Then, they added cool pendant lights, a bold wall color, a matching backsplash and unique window treatments. The open shelves give the couple storage space while displaying the couple's dishes.

Trista continues her design into the bedroom with the bold, blue bedspread and accent pillow. She added a modern touch with a metal chandelier hanging from the ceiling, but kept the rustic design alive with the exposed beam in the ceiling and the natural wood door to the right.
