Last night (and pretty much all day yesterday) it rained, and rained, then rained some more. Our new couch had just arrived, so I spent my evening curled up there with some good movies (Adjustment Bureau anyone?) and browsing beautiful mountain homes.
I think our weekend trip to Denver got me dreaming of mountain homes, and the thought of a cozy mountain home on a rainy night sounded really nice!
My ideal mountain home would be a good mix of traditional mountain style with modern touches like huge windows, high ceilings and high-end finishes.
I can’t stand when mountain homes are filled with so much wood that they look like a log cabin. Adding those modern touches brightens up the space and makes any wood detailing look perfect!
This one is a little ornate for me, but I love the ceiling and those big windows. You can’t beat that view of the mountains, can you?
I love this more modern take on a mountain home. So often they’re like log cabins and that’s just not really my vibe. The ceiling in these two above ( same house, different angles!) are absolutely stunning.
Paired with layered, eclectic touches, this space feels cozy, yet spacious and I would absolutely love to hang out here.
A more neutral space, but stunning! These wooden beams bring so much warmth and coziness to the space!
Again, another more modern take, but it totally works. There is so much natural light in this space. I love how they’ve incorporated wood and stone without it feeling like a log cabin.
This last one actually has a ton of wood, but I think they did a good job of picking other elements that don’t look too old. If it was my place, I’d whitewash the walls to brighten up the space a bit more!
By decorating with neutral colors and mixed patterns and textures, these homes let their natural setting take center stage. Don’t these make you feel so peaceful? My only question — when can I move in?!
