Contemporary Rustic Home in Big Sky, Montanta
The homeowners love to entertain, so the house is designed to create an open and casual atmosphere with a strong connection to the outdoors. The home is oriented toward the best view of the river while maintaining good solar orientation for taking advantage of solar heat gain in the winter and keeping out the hot summer sun. The large roof over the living room serves to shade large areas of glass in the summer, while geothermal heat pumps and high levels of insulation help keep it warm and energy efficient in the winter. With such an extreme climate in Big Sky, Mont., the house is specifically designed to withstand both sides of the temperature spectrum.
Painted cabinets with antique-looking glass add to the lodge look of this space by Tami Holsten of Bear Trap Design. Freestanding storage pieces complement built-ins for the assembled-over-time look characteristic of country decor.
Bold colors, fanciful patterns and rustic details define this 6,000-square-foot mountain ski home in Park City, Utah. The rustic exterior combines with interior elements that blend the client’s love of pattern and color with the ruggedness of the Park City landscape.
This spacious eat-in kitchen features two large kitchen island areas with striped upholstered stools, as well as a small casual dining area. The exposed beam ceiling and stone accent wall add rustic flair, while glass pendant lights and a chandelier with mini lampshades provide finishing touches.
Rustic Green Home Exterior With Stone and Wood Accents
This private 13-acre estate features a light green siding exterior paired with wood and stone accents, giving it a rustic look. Evergreen trees line the property, while a stream and pond provide a natural backyard water feature.
This Lake Tahoe-area home is located directly on the skyway, which gives it ski-in/ski-out access to Northstar Ski Resort in a neighborhood of only 25 home sites. The gated community offers exclusivity and privacy, while the home's orientation on its lot provides 180 degree views.
This rustic sitting area features timbered walls and broad windows that offer a view of the gorgeous Wyoming countryside. A comfortable blue sofa adds a pop of color, while artwork gives a nod to the surrounding wildlife while bringing a touch of whimsy. A doorway opens to a wide wood deck, giving the room's occupants a private spot to hang out and enjoy the view.
This elegant living room is covered from floor to ceiling in lustrous wood for rustic lodge feel. A charming fireplace offers a cozy spot to relax with one of the many books that fill the built-in shelves.
Birthing Room: Farley Garrison House in Gilmanton, N.H.
As in most all homes of this period, just past the kitchen is a small borning room. While you may not be inclined to use the room for its originally intended purpose, it could be a cozy spot for reading or napping. Originally built in 1665 in Billerica, Mass., this Pilgrim-era saltbox garrison home is believed to be one of the oldest homes in the country. It was dismantled and reconstructed board-by-board in Gilmanton, N.H.
Rustic Wood Meets Industrial, Urban Design Features in Tea Bar
Warm, rustic wood meets industrial and urban design features in this San Diego tea bar. Just as the eating bar features reclaimed wood on black, iron legs, the accent wall blends a black-and-charcoal graffiti design above wood paneling for continuity in design.
This spacious and luxurious game room features faux-weathered walls, a pitched, beamed ceiling and barn-style doors, giving the space a rustic charm that fits its woodsy Lake Arrowhead, California, setting. Farming implements serve as wall art, and comfortable sofas and traditional rugs add warmth and homeyness to the game area.
Reclaimed white-washed wood planks sourced from an actual barn create a stunning feature wall behind the headboard in this rustic master bedroom. A southwestern-inspired trunk adds visual texture, while the room is grounded by hardwood floors and a subtle area rug.
