Rustic Luxury Interior Design: Mountain Chalet

A traditional ski chalet accepts a fresh touch of contemporary aesthetic

Hello everyone! I’ve decided to start to build out a new section of the blog that features rustic home tours by exceptional Architects and Interior Designers.  This post features the work of Miller Roodell Architects, located in Bozeman Montana. Their design aesthetic steers them toward the textures, color palettes and material choices grounded in the surrounding region. Ultimately, their goal is to build spaces that help you experience the surroundings, instead of merely insulating you from them.

The first project of theirs that I’d like to share is a stunning rustic luxury mountain chalet located in Big Sky Montana.  The home was completed in 2019 and has 7,240 square feet  of living space.

Focused on providing their family with a cozy slope-side ski retreat, this chalet was ready for a transformation that provided a fresh take on rustic being redefined.  A contemporary aesthetic influenced the overall layout and finishes throughout the chalet.  Introducing a lounge style theater, a games/activity area and opening the floor plan of the main public spaces, make this a perfect getaway retreat for the large family and their friends to gather after a day on the slopes.

I love the contrast between the charcoal cabinets, countertops and chairs, with the warm shades of wood. A live edge table provides the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or an informal meal.

Designer Christina Peffer believes that it’s important to combine styles when working to achieve a modern luxe home:  

“You can create a rustic vibe in a modern room by using wood elements, such as reclaimed wood beams and stone, keeping all finishes natural and selecting a palette that complements the natural materials. Juxtapose natural finishes with clean architectural details—wide-plank rift oak wood floors in a satin finish paired with white walls, for instance. Materials such as wood-paneled walls, field stones, black iron, brick, or a blackened wood finish (there’s a charring process that gives the wood age and character with a modern aesthetic) on either a paneled ceiling or walls create an unexpected punch. Some of our favorite types of furniture for this look are live-edge dining tables and petrified wood pieces with textured fabric on upholstery.”

  • Ranch Style House | Rustic Home Ideas

Ranch Style House Home Tour

This stunning ranch style house is perched high on a hilltop and nestled among the trees claiming its rightful place on a scenic 200-acre property in Texas. The owner desired an ample yet understated home with natural and simple architectural expression that would blend effortlessly into the landscape that surrounds it. Heavy timber columns and stone walls ground the home to the site. Reclaimed siding and simple barn-like structures give the architecture a sense of history and regional belonging. Referencing the owner’s love of the old west, many of the interior walls showcase the same stone and wood that is on the exterior of the home. This gesture alludes to a time when materials were not mass produced but simply gathered from the area and formed as needed.

She mingles sinuous profiles with hard lines, juxtaposing masculine and feminine silhouettes to create compelling, sensual spaces. Layered light is another crucial element bringing a sense of warmth, romance and contentment to Beth’s interiors.

  • Traditional Country Home

Atlanta Traditional Country Home

Today we begin a tour of a stunning Atlanta home where the pallet was inspired by the home owner’s (Jane Hight) vast collection of blue-and-white Imari porcelain inherited from her mother and grandmother. Having served as the accountant for interior designer Lauren DeLoach for several years, it was natural for Hight to enlist the designer’s help when decorating her home. When it came to a color palette, the pair looked no further than Hight’s beloved family porcelain. “While we knew we would use blue, finding the right shade took some study,” says DeLoach. “We didn’t want a too-saturated hue, but we didn’t want it too pale. We also needed another color to add punctuation marks here and there, so the salmon hue came from the Imari porcelain.”

Country Home Tour

The small and compact English-style country home is 1,400-square-feet and situated on a sweeping pasture across from the Inn at Brays Island in South Carolina. The owners hired Interior Designer, Beth Webb to create a pastoral blend of Anglo and Low Country traditions. “It’s interesting how a house this tiny can be so INCREDIBLY LIVABLE. Inside, all that extreme verticality means the rooms feel neither contained or compressed. Plus the house has a beautiful orientation on the property, so there’s a lovely dappling of light morning, afternoon, and evening. We took advantage of this as much as possible, especially in the galley kitchen, which we designed as kind of a non-kitchen kitchen, a space that looks more like a sun-splashed garden room with that huge window.”
