What is Mountain Modern Style?

From the Appalachians, to the Pacific Northwest, we have tailored our look to incorporate all aspects of mountain living. Clean lines, local stones, wooden structures, and a large variety of inviting textures make up our contemporary forward thinking mountain look.

What Defines the Mountain Modern Look?

Individual interpretations of the style are unique and varying, yet the overall components remain consistent. Largely defined by architectural features, mountain modern interiors consist of fresh spaces using local materials, neutral color palettes, and a combination of wood contrasted with wrought iron and stone. The key is to blur the lines between natural and man-made to marry our native surroundings with our interiors.

How Does Mountain Modern Differ from Traditional Western Style?

Both trends feature similar materials, such as stone, lodgepole timbers, natural fibers and metal. How these materials are incorporated into a space is where the two trends diverge. The traditional mountain aesthetic is dominated by rough hewn timber, native stone, and maintains a rustic feel. This style layers thickly framed artwork, accessories and dark, heavy furniture to create a moody atmosphere. Mountain Modern defines its look with refined materials and thoughtfully accessorized open living spaces to allow breath into the home. Both styles connect a homeowner to nature, yet mountain modern seeks to incorporate a contemporary feel to a traditional space.

What Furnishings Define Mountain Modern?

To create your Mountain Modern home, pare down your color palette to a defined range of neutrals. Let artwork and unique accessories add depth to your home. Incorporate a statement piece, such as a sideboard, to your great room and highlight the space with a unique accent chair. Soften the space with a cowhide rug, fur pillows and blankets, and leather upholstery. Consider including items made from reclaimed or natural wood. Local antiques and Native tonal designs are fantastic additions to incorporate both history and personality.
