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.
This luxurious master suite has an exciting feature-the space can either be an outdoor oasis or an indoor getaway. Designers thought it would be a shame to waste the couple's magnificent mountain views, so they planned a way to bring the outdoors in. The windows that make up the walls of the master suite are retractable, giving the couple options with their space.
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.
Susan Brunstrum designed her client's second home in Park City, Utah employing a "Mountain Modern," theme, which contemporizes the natural look of rustic furnishings for today's lifestyle. For this great room, the designer added contemporary furniture to contrast with the more primitive resonance of the stone fireplace and dark woodwork. The color palette of the room is soft and subdued, which plays nicely against the room's more masculine elements.
Sculpted glass walls and modern lines characterize this luxury home in Lugano, Switzerland, which is designed by architect Milan Jacopo Mascheroni. The 3,658-square-foot home has views of Lake Lugano and surrounding mountains.
The design strives to make the home's outdoor areas a perfectly graceful extension of its indoor ones. Here, the living room opens up entirely to the enormous backyard, the large opening framing in mountain views.
Open and airy thanks to exposed pine beams and bright, soaring ceilings, this modern mountain bunkroom at HGTV Dream Home 2014 is designed for children, but the array of red-and-white patterns makes it sophisticated enough for adult guests.
So many windows and a ceiling that angles up make the interior of this contemporary cabin feel as spacious as the mountain setting around it. A huge rug with a geometric pattern unifies the large living area.
This great room can easily accommodate a crowd, what with its open kitchen, formal dining space and nearby sitting area. Wood paneling overhead draws the eye to the mountain views and helps the modern interior feel a little more connected to the wilderness.
Decorative modern lighting adds a splash of contemporary to this rustic mountain retreat. Wood and metal mix together for a nature-inspired staircase, while exposed stone and wood add organic texture to the space. At the bottom of the stairs is a pair of cowhide benches for seating.
The Swan home, in Rancho Mirage, California, was built in the 1960s and has been reimagined for the twenty-first century. Glass walls around the home provide a three hundred and sixty degree view of the valley below and the mountain range above.
Walls of glass give the sloped roof a sense of lightness. They also provide incredible views of the Cascade Mountains, which the owners can enjoy from the comfort of their living room sofa. The coffee table was custom built by the owner and complements the modern interior, as well as the woodlands beyond it.
The designer of this mountain home wanted the living room to feel cozy and be a modern twist on a rustic cabin look.
