For a classic, masculine spin, wooden taxidermy was made for the boys' room by tracing shapes to two-inch-thick cedar planks with a pencil, then cutting them out with a jigsaw, sanding and then adding a whitewashed finish for a clean look. Picture hanging wire is attached to the back for easy, level installation.
A few steps up from the larger sitting area is a small nook that's transformed into a cozy bedroom. Whitewashed wood plank walls lighten the room, while windows help to expand the space visually. Narrow wicker tables act as nightstands and a pair of sconces hang on opposite walls for reading lights.
The bed’s headboard with whitewashed planks of wood includes different high and low points, similar to the peaks and valleys seen in the local mountains around this beautiful Whitefish, Montana property.
The mudroom also includes two wall-mounted mail holders with chalkboards for schedule reminders and hooks for easy-access storage of keys. Made from planks of solid reclaimed wood, the mail holders have a weathered whitewash finish for a lovely antique look.
This open and airy room features a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace in the same neutral, whitewashed tones that permeate the decor of the entire house. A wood plank ceiling runs the length of the space, adding architectural interest and setting the tone for the home's rustic-modern style.
The inviting queen bed includes a custom bed frame made with whitewashed planks of wood that create a look similar to a classic white fence. An industrial-style chest with metal frame and engineered wood finish on one side has three drawers for handy storage of bedroom essentials, with a clear glass table lamp with cotton shade on top for nighttime reading.
