For the Pilgrims, corn wasn’t yellow and sweet, but more of a colorful affair, much like these ears. The colonists dried the kernels on the cobs, later pounding the dried corn into meal or flour. Corn was a part of nearly every meal in some form. ‘Painted Mountain’ is a high yielding corn developed in Montana from over 1,000 strains of commercial corn and that grown by Native Americans. It tolerates drought and cold, yielding in a short growing season.
Take in the panoramic views of the mountains, meadows and forests from this modern home retreat. The exterior features canyon stone details, plank cedar siding and black metal composites, along with a perfect paver driveway leading to the three-car garage.
The homeowners of this mountain home are minimalist and wanted a simple space to hang out with family and friends. To add drama above the fireplace, designer Emily Esposito used Modular Art Panels. The wavy pattern ties in with the curved roof and plays off the water of the home's surrounding lakes.
A warm and inviting entrance inspired by the surrounding aspen forest greets its occupants and guests upon arrival. Reclaimed wood and organic rock cover the exterior of the home, channeling the neighboring mountains.
This master bedroom brings the warmth and coziness of staying in the mountains, but with updated amenities. A nature inspired color palette brings the outdoors inside and compliments the room's outdoorsy atmosphere.
