This modern cabin has an open concept living and dining room separated by a contemporary built in gas fireplace, midcentury modern dining table and chairs and pendant light, coffered wood ceiling and exposed beams, and hardwood floors.
“I’ve always imagined spending a snow-filled Christmas in a cozy mountain cabin, so I decided to pretend that’s where we were hanging out when I created this tablescape,” says Katie Nathey of Mountain Modern Life.
“Most of the table decor came from shopping our home,” Nathey says, “such as the vintage Mason jars and candle holders.” The napkins were made out of leftover fabric, and she added liquid gold leaf to glam up thrifted glasses.
We’re all a fan of the deep grain texture that a wood deck offers, but aren’t fans of the maintenance that goes along with it. Good Life composite decking from Fiberon, in the subtle Cabin color, showcases rustic graining against more modern furnishing and clean, white composite railing – but never requires staining or painting.
Knowing that his clients wanted a building that had presence in and subservience to the wild landscape, architect David Coleman and his team designed the building forms to be angular and elemental, not unlike the surrounding mountain peaks. The result is a dramatic design that's deceptively simple, deeply rooted in the site and unexpectedly crisp and modern.
This guest bathroom is given a modern touch with the slate gray walls, streamlined sink and modern light fixtures. The natural wood mirror brings in a splash of the rustic design, striking the balance that the couple was looking for. The dark walls will help keep stains and dirt at bay in this guest bathroom, while maintaining a stylish look for the guests.
Pewter gray cabinets and stainless steel appliances serve as a handsome foil to this open plan kitchen and dining area's redwood ceiling. Reconfiguring the layout in the lakefront cabin allowed designers to show off views and make interiors feel lighter and more airy.
The dining room in this space embraces the cabin's modern roots. With the exposed beams in the ceiling, the natural wood table and the plaid dining chairs, the space is very cabin-esque. However, Trista adds some modern accents, such as the chandelier and the artwork on the walls, to incorporate some of the modern touches that the family like so much.
As seen on HGTV's Rocky Mountain Reno, this bedroom, once covered in wood, dark and outdated, is now a bright, beautiful place for the couple to relax. A large window with neutral window treatments let in plenty of natural light, while the light color of the walls and ceiling help to reflect that light and keep the space feeling lights and open. 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.
As seen on HGTV's Rocky Mountain Reno, Trists' design has expertly combined the natural aspect of the cabin with the modern aspects that the couple desires. In the living room, the rustic design is brought to life with the wood wall, exposed wood beams, the original wood burning stove for extra warmth and decor such as the antlers on the wall and the wood candlestick holder. She brings the modern into the design with the window treatments and the rug. The natural blue color on the wall and the curtains adds a pop of color to the space.
As seen on Rocky Mountain Reno, the couple renovating this log cabin in Minturn, Colorado was interested in bringing both rustic and modern designs together to make the home of their dreams. The clean, white tile, grey stone vanity and grey patterned and mosaic tile, the modern style is greatly represented. To incorporate the rustic design, Trista used natural wood in places like the exposed beams in the ceiling and natural wood baseboards.
As seen on Rocky Mountain Reno, the couple's new living room contains a seating area for them to enjoy. With two overstuffed leather chairs placed directly underneath a window, plenty of natural light enters the seating area. The natural elements of the space-the wood walls and table and the leather chairs-bring a rustic feel to the space, while the metal lamp helps incorporate the modern. Trista brings in the natural blue from the kitchen by adding a Roman shade on the window.
