The $19.5-million Elk Horn Ranch boasts stunning views of the surrounding mountain ranges. The luxurious main house has six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, large living spaces with vaulted ceilings and an entertaining-ready kitchen and bar. For guests that love to have their own getaway, the Wrangler cabin is a perfect one-room cabin complete with a bathroom and kitchenette. And, of course, don't forget the horses, who have a spacious four-stall barn to return to after exploring the ranch's 160 acres.
To create a warm, inviting great room, designers opened the space into other rooms in the home, making it easily accessible from several points of entry. Then, designers added a variety of textures in a warm color palette to create the space's comfortable, yet chic, appeal. To give the space a touch of glamor, bronzite metallic tiles were installed around the fireplace to give the appearance of metal cladding without adding the cost, putting the finishing touches on the elegant, contemporary design.
A glass-front fireplace is the focal point of this navy midcentury modern family room, which also features a seating area with brown armchairs, sofa and coffee table. Decorative animal horns create an additional focal point.
Inexpensive painted trays, which were popular in the 1950s and 1960s and are still made today, can bring a farmhouse motif to a kitchen, breakfast nook or adjacent area. Small silhouettes often are bargain-priced at vintage and antiques shops, or you can make your own by printing silhouette-style clip art and placing it in small wooden frames. Pick three or four types of objects, such as silhouettes, blue-and-white serving platters, trays and resin horns, and arrange them in a composition, says Susan Sully, author of “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques."
