Mountainside Retreat: The Entry & Great Room

Details from our latest project

Introducing a soft and contemporary aesthetic…

the entryway and great room of our Mountainside Retreat are filled with natural light, relaxed materials, and subtle details to enhance a muted color palette.  

Careful furniture selections highlight the architecture and build designed in collaboration with Lloyd Architects and Jackson and Leroy, bringing dimension to each vignette.  

When you step into… 

the open-concept entryway, you’re first greeted by light filtering in from the large black windows lining the hallway. 

Unlike any entryway layout we’ve ever worked with, this space brought an opportunity for multiple styling moments: A round table moment, a console table moment, and an unexpected built-in next to the streamlined staircase entrance. We used one of our favorite paint colors, Benjamin Moore’s Swiss Coffee, at 75% strength on the walls throughout to complement the natural light.

Integrated into the built-in..  

simple paneling brings interest to the large blank wall, carried from behind the stairs into the basement. The built-in styling separates the visual space between the staircase and the entryway, pulling the look together with storage and decorative pieces.

The double-sided fireplace… 

anchors the entire home. You see it immediately upon entering, and it leads into the great room and all the way down into the basement.

In the great room..

you are greeted by an open space where the living area, kitchen, and dining room connect. The incredible mountain views set the scene for the space and make a serene statement throughout. White oak T&G and beams throughout draw the eye up to the ceiling.  

“Our client loves a really soft palette, and so our goal was to add as much texture and interest as possible”

Our client requested… 

a really soft palette, and so our goal was to add as much texture and interest as possible through curved lines, boucle textures, and different shades of wood. We incorporated two different shades of wood tones in this space through light oak on the floors and a slightly darker tone on the ceiling.

Clerestory windows… 

create one of the most unique moments in the entire home. The chandelier suspended from the top draws the eye to the ceiling and beam detail we developed with the architecture.

Carried from the exterior of the home… 

the stone on the fireplace centers the cast limestone mantle, bringing a cozy feeling to the minimal floorplan. 

On the opposite side… 

of the living space, we had an extra wall to fill that wasn’t completely part of the living space. To make it feel separate while still connected, we added an extra-long, comfortable daybed, a tree moment, and drapes to soften and complete the look.
