Enchanting modern-rustic dwelling in the rugged mountains of Big Sky

This modern-rustic mountain home was designed by  in conjunction with interior design firm  on the slopes at the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana. Rugged mountain architecture is defined by reclaimed timer and native stone as the backdrop for interiors with bold pops of color, extraordinary fabrics and exotic skins. The homeowner’s wished for an escape from the city, a place where they could enjoy entertaining family and friends and outdoor activities.

The dwelling is perched on a steep slope of almost 8,500 feet to maximize views of Pioneer Mountain and the impressive Lone Peak, one of which is framed by an unobstructed expanse of glass just off the great room, the other generates a dramatic focal point in the dining room. “Our intention was to create a home that was understated yet inviting from the exterior so that the surrounding views would be temporarily lost, only to be rediscovered in grand fashion upon entering the house,” states the architects.

The exterior facade of the home is very rustic, with reclaimed Douglas fir timbers and Montana moss rock, which has been set close together in order to attain a dry-stacked look comparable to that of the Incan temples. The interiors offer an unexpected twist, diverging from the typical Western mountain homes featuring subdued colors and traditional shapes. Instead the home boasts striking colors infused with captivating shapes of contemporary design.

The dining room showcases a mixture of rustic and chic, infusing contemporary style in the clean lines of the coffered ceiling, the native stone floor, modern pear-drop crystal chandeliers and stunning furnishings. The eclecticism continues to the great room, with a custom geometric-patterned rug, color furnishings, lots of texture and city-chic style. The kitchen offers functionality and fun with French lava stone countertops in a green-apple shade and red ceiling tiles with cabinets in a deep walnut.
