Finding Reasonably Priced Art for Big Sky, Mt Interior Design

 

Inspiration comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Being an Interior Designer in Big

Sky, MT I have to be versatile and fit all styles and budgets. Art becomes a very

interesting part of the budget. People want color, style and images that make a house

warm and inviting and show what they love and who they are. The problem is that close

to half the houses I interior decorate are used as vacation rental. This means that people

do not like to spend a great deal on high dollar art that could be subject to

traffic and potential wear.

 

This started my quest for finding good art at reasonable prices. My husband and I use to

own The Odee Company which is a printer and promotional product company in Dallas,

Tx. We sold to two long time employees and a friend. They have been very successful

and one of the areas they expanded into was wide format printing. One thing led to

another and they partnered with two artists and launched Canvaskick.com. Wide format

has become very accepted for art and Canvaskick does giclees that the artist can hand

sign. The giclee can have a resin finish added that makes it appear to be encased in

glass. Cost is around $650 for the giclee and the resin finish is extra. The originals go

for $6000 and up. So, this is an inexpensive way to have great color and art.

 

Canvaskick started with Carolyn Joe and Dara Burriss and have added Matt Jones

Photography(great trout pictures), Dustin Doskocil Photography, Felix Art Studios and

Walter Eduardo Soza. There supposedly are more artists and works from present artists

to soon be added. It has developed enough of a following that it has been featured on

Cassie Freeman’s,  Hi Sugarplum webpage  and has participated in her

One Room Challenge. I heard Cassie was in Big Sky for her sister’s wedding. I would

have loved to shown her some of my projects and some Dallas hospitality! Maybe next

time! My husband could have shown her some beautiful property on a pretty river!

I have used Canvaskick and Odee for both the giclees, as well as, other prints. They

turn them quickly. As an Interior Designer, we know everything happens yesterday.

Being a Big Sky Interior Designer with people wanting 2nd homes perfect for family and

friends really means yesterday. Canvaskick says two weeks to turn the art but I

would urge you to call. They have turned things for me in a crunch in very short order

and are great to work with, so always call Travis. I also would like to add, their shipping

is bulletproof. They ship nationwide. So, they custom build the box and the art is bubble

wrapped extremely well.

Next time you have a project that needs some reasonable art options consider wide

format and look up Canvaskick. Great way to add color and style!

Another favorite of ours is Venture West Ranches where you can find your dream Montana Legacy Ranch with wildlife, water and views! They specialize in Recreational Ranches. In fact, they are starting to do Eastern Montana Ranches Estate Planning Seminars. There first one is January 18th.

Interior Design Blog Montana – The Things We Get to See!

Lone Mountain Sunset in Big Sky, MT

 

I call Big Sky, MT home. I love it! I am an Interior Designer and get the opportunity to work on some of the most beautiful homes in the country but the things I see and the people I meet are some of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. I decided to share some of these experiences with you by doing a Interior Design Blog Montana theme. It is not all about interior design. I try and share some of the pics of what we get to see everyday. Both in scenery and wildlife! This is a picture that I took one evening when the clouds moved in as the sun was going down. You will find grizzly bear pictures, elk and fly fishing pictures also in the blog. After all, what is a Interior Design Blog Montana theme without some beautiful wildlife and scenery mixed in!

Our Big Sky, MT is in a unique part of the country. Located 45 minutes north of the NW entrance to Yellowstone National Park, Big Sky is the largest ski acreage in North America. Bet you didn’t know that! Our lift lines are non existent. Christmas time you might have to wait 5 minutes. Big Sky has grown dramatically in the last 15 years but is still a very small town most of the time of the year.

Big Sky is blanketed in snow 6 months out of the year and sometimes longer. Today’s date is March 25th and we have had 14″ of snow in the last 72 hours. It is beautiful, although, at this point we are ready to start seeing some flowers and we are still 2 months out before we start seeing them. The beauty of this time of the year is very soon it will be muddy and yucky with the town deserted but the wildlife and fishing opportunities become tremendous over the next month. See here for my last years early trip into Yellowstone in April. April and early May are your big opportunities to see Grizzlies and controversial Wolves in the Park. You have to deal with very few people and you will find the Park Rangers much more relaxed this time of year. You will also have the opportunity to see Bison calves. They are very cute just be careful about Mama! The fly fishing opportunities also abound this time of year before runoff. Trout are starting to get more active and it is the Rainbows turn to spawn in the spring, while the Browns get to follow and nibble on eggs. You have better opportunities for bigger and more plentiful fish this time of year than you do when there are almost as many fisherman as fish during the summer!

Of course with an Interior Design Blog Montana theme we will also talk about Interior Design and what is happening in Big Sky and Montana in general. We will show you some of our interior design projects and some of our remodels and new construction. Bottomline you never know what we will talk about or too in our Interior Design Blog Montana!

So, while most of you are starting to see spring flowers we are still blanketed in the white stuff but don’t feel sorry for us because this is a special time of the year to be in Big Sky, MT believe it or not. If you are curious about our other posts please check out our Blog and if you want to see some of our latest projects take a look at our Portfolio. You can also check us out on Pinterest, Facebook and Houzz.

If you are trying to decide between a 2nd home in Big Sky or want to get away from the crowds and purchase a Ranch or Farm in Montana, let us know. We would highly recommend Venture West Ranches in Bozeman as a farm and ranch real estate broker. They specialize in Legacy Ranches. We know there are decisions to be made when investing and both a 2nd home in Big Sky or a Farm or Ranch in Montana both have great opportunities for appreciation with the growth we are seeing.

Montana Interior Designer – Countertop Discussion

Montana Interior Designer - Countertop Discussion

 

As a Montana Interior Designer in Big Sky, I get involved in discussions and decisions on countertops. Both in new construction and in remodels where we are trying to upgrade a home. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and one persons likes may not match another persons. My bottom line is if you love it then it is right! There are a number of choices and materials to choose from and things to consider. Hopefully, this article helps enlighten you on some things to consider when deciding on countertops, whether for your kitchen, bathroom or wherever else.

-Granite Countertops are what the majority of people want in their homes. They are beautiful and Granite is unique. It is a mined slab of natural earth material where no two slabs are alike. Because they are natural material, they are imperfect and some people are concerned that one countertop in a room may not match another countertop exactly. Some people love that slabs show character and some are bothered by it. Costs have dropped recently and granite is more reasonable than in the past. Chances are you will have to have seams depending on the size of countertop. The person that installs can minimize the seams but they are still there. This is due to slabs coming in somewhat uniform sizes and countertops coming in all kinds of lengths! Costs are a concern for me as a Montana Interior Designer and there are a few ways that I can help you in deciding on granite. Many times I can find remnants of an already used slab. Another cost consideration would be thickness of the slab. While the kitchen will normally be a 3″ slab a number of people are now going to 2″ slabs for bathroom and elsewhere countertops. You can also sometimes find excess inventory of certain colors or something that might have been around the yard for a while. Another cost consideration for countertops of all materials is the edge treatment. If you want a edge that is something different than comes from the mine it is going to have to be machined and normally that is going to add expense. The other consideration to consider on granite is if you want a non maintenance surface granite may not be the best for you. It needs to be periodically cleaned and sealed. There is one recent consideration on granite. There are slabs coming more and more from countries such as China that are lesser grade. They are much cheaper but can discolor and are not always as durable. I would ask where the slab has come from and discuss the origin with the supplier. As a Montana Interior Designer, I talk to as many suppliers as I can because they all have different materials, slabs and you never know when you might be able to save a client money!

-Quartz is manmade and is actually more expensive than granite right now. I say manmade, it is actually crushed quartz particles that is then formed with the help of rosin into a solid material. Very durable and has a look and feel of stone. There is no maintenance for quartz. At this point and time it is more expensive than granite. Some people are bothered that it is manufactured but if you want a countertop that you can place and not have to worry about quartz is it. I have used quartz countertops being a Montana Interior Designer and have no issues with using them in a home. In fact, in rentals, it is a very good choice. In theory it is stainless and incredibly durable. Quartz can be effected by sunlight over a period of time so if you have an area that gets noticeably more sunlight you would need to consider that. Because quartz is manufactured versus real stone if there are seams they will be much less noticeable. Quartz is made to look like stone and is much more uniform in color, texture and pattern. If that is important to you consider quartz.

-Quartzite is not to be mistaken for quartz. They are different materials. Quartzite is actually sandstone that has been put under pressure and heat. Choices of colors are more limited in Quartzite, usually, more whites and grays. Quartzite will have more streaking and may have colored streaks depending on materials present in the naturally occurring process. Quartzite, unlike quartz, requires maintenance since it is a stone. You need to seal and reseal to keep material from penetrating the stone. Costs are comparable to quartz.

Other Materials for Countertops

I like to mix things up as a Montana Interior Designer since I can be doing rustic, modern rustic, cabin, ski chalet or any of another styles. There are a couple of materials that I like to use as countertops on more of an accent basis mixed in with some of the materials talked about above. I will just name them alphabetically and not necessarily in order of preference because so much depends on the style and the design.

-Concrete is a great accent piece for islands and smaller areas. It is manmade so you have to seal it a couple times a year and it will stain. Most people view concrete as something that develops character and you can use different color mortars to accent your design. You can do a very light color all the way to black. It is a change of pace that is more of an accent than a long counter. Islands are perfect for concrete.

-Stainless Steel is also a good accent piece, although some will use it for a whole counter. Nothing wrong with either. It is in the personal taste category. Stainless will scratch easily and you either mark that down as character or you can get burnished stainless steel that you will be able to buff out some of the scratches. Stainless is good for a modern look and more of a commercial kitchen look where scratches would not matter anyway. Easy to clean and isn’t going to stain.

-Wood would be the other material I would like to mention that I have used as a Montana Interior Designer. We will use butcher block in limited areas to accent a kitchen. I love the look of butcher block mixed in with a darker colored countertop. This is something you have to seal and clean more than other materials but people that like to cook, love butcher blocks.

Cleaning of Countertops

Just a thought on cleaning of countertops. Over the years in my job as a Montana Interior Designer I have been taught a few things. Any of the natural earth made materials, the best way of cleaning them is with hydrogen peroxide and rock salt. This sanitizes all the little cracks and crevices without damaging the material of your countertop. On the manmade surfaces you can use more normal sanitary cleaners. I would not use bleach on any surface that you will be preparing food.

I hope you have found this article to be helpful. I know I have left out some surfaces so if you love a surface that I did not mention please feel free to drop me a note or comment.

Interior Designer Big Sky MT -Do you work outside of Big Sky?

Cozy bedroom in Mountain home in Big Sky, MT.

One of the questions that I receive from Realtors, Builders and other potential clients is do you ever work outside of Big Sky MT? Of course! If you want to know about out of state, I have done projects in Texas and South Carolina. Most are talking local and I have done multiple projects in Bozeman and West Yellowstone. I travel anywhere within Montana and have travelled elsewhere. Once a client has a certain comfort level it is easy to do another home for them or their primary residence. I adapt to any theme or design quickly. I attribute that, to doing jobs in Dallas where Mountain Home is not high on the list of decorating themes to consider and the extensive time I have spent in areas such as Seaside, Florida and other beach areas. Being an Interior Designer Big Sky MT the area I would travel would certainly include these areas: Bozeman(of course), Ennis, Livingston, Big Timber, Manhattan, Three Forks and then Island Park, Idaho. The developments I have worked with in Big Sky are Spanish Peaks, Moonlight Basin, Big Sky Resort and all over Big Sky proper. If you live and work as an Interior Designer in Big Sky Montana, you are going to travel.

I’m known for being able to pull off an Interior Design job quicker than most designers.  In fact, close to half my Interior Decorating business is quick turn projects. So, I can travel anywhere and between on site and Internet I can do a design job very quickly. It might include an onsite visit with measuring, getting a feel for the client and house and then shipping in items and time on site to bring it all together. In Montana, you need to be able to do things remotely and then pull it all together if needed in just a few trips to minimize cost while creating a home that pleases the client!

What is key is the organization of ordering and delivery in a more rural setting. It brings me back to my former career of having to pull a number of media and print projects together and making it all come together within a timeframe. I did this for Fortune 500 companies under very tight time and budget constraints while sourcing products both internationally and domestic. It is very similar to the organization of construction, painter, appliances, furniture, etc..takes a special talent to communicate, organize and have everyone get along, while keeping the end goal in mind! Especially, as it gets close to transition times from construction wrapping up, cleaning of the house and furnishings starting to be delivered, placed and the final touches. There are a lot of moving parts!

So, if you are looking for an Interior Designer Big Sky MT located in SW Montana we may very well be the designer you are looking for! Feel free to look at our Portfolio page to see some of our recent projects. We can adapt to most any style! You can also check us out on Pinterest, Houzz and Facebook.

Video Ideas for Interior Decorating Big Sky MT

I feel the best way to keep up with new and exciting Interior Decorating ideas is watching shows, talking to people, reading and going to shows. Here are a few videos with my thoughts after each one. The beauty about an Interior Designer is that none of us are going to agree with each other 100% of the time! I know Big Sky MT Interior Decorating styles and others outside the area don’t know what the trends are in our Montana mountain town. What styles are bringing top dollar and what skilled labor and the harsh weather can do to some of these trends! Here is our first video: Top 10 Design Trends Of 2016

My thoughts are:

#10-I love the hard lines for the right place and design. I would limit it to some of the statement pieces. You just need to be careful and not overdue. New concepts can be fun and exciting. They just need to fit!

#9-Retro is in and we have used it on several Interior Decorating Big Sky MT projects. We are using it a lot between art and furnishings! We love games such as Foosball or Old Pinball Machines and we mixing in Big Sectional Sofas.

#8-Natural Fibers are a big part of what we do here in Big Sky. Seagrass or Jute rugs. Artwork or furniture using reclaimed wood. Exteriors and finishes using stone and wood finishes. The new and exciting things for 2016 are mixing in color on there natural fiber pieces. I am very excited about doing this in 2016!

#6-Love space savers and things that help in organization!

#5-Simple is in! It is me with accents! You come to Big Sky to get away from your busy life and you need a Big Sky Interior Decorator that understands that and gives you a soothing home!

#4-Love glass in the kitchen! Let your dishes be art!

#3-Again you come to Big Sky MT to relax. Pretty and practical helps soothe you!

#1-Maybe. This would work in some of our Interior Decorating Big Sky MT styles but not all! Love the design just would depend on the project. With a number of Modern Interior Decorating projects coming up for us in 2016 you will definitely see us use this design idea!

Next on the video is: Tiny Cabins in the Woods by Grig Stamate. I think this is very appropriate for Interior Decorating Big Sky MT ideas because a number of homes have or are considering guest cabins or cottages.

Home sizes are trending smaller and this gives you some good ideas on weekend cabins in the woods. These, of course, are perfect guest cabins for larger homes. My thoughts on making these small cabins bigger or living bigger are having lofts, bunk beds, porches, natural wood burning stoves, and I love the flower boxes! I would try and always use as much reclaimed materials in the project and I love how some of these small cabins are using bright colors for trim! I want to give full credit to Grig’s blog: howtobuildahouseblog.com

So those are 2 videos I thought you might find interesting and hopefully entertaining! If you want to see some Big Sky MT Interior Decorating of small cabins try here or you can view some of our recent projects here!

Rustic Montana Home

Interior Decorator Big Sky MT-Furniture Discussion

Rustic Montana Home

Can I Use Furniture I Already Have? 

I have many questions that come up repeatedly when talking to prospective clients about doing the Interior decorating for their Big Sky, MT home. The question of whether I can use furniture or art in the house or brought from the client’s home. My job is not to spend your money to fulfill my dreams or to put the project into my portfolio. There are numerous projects where I have done the interior decorating here in Big Sky, MT and used pieces that are already in the home. As long as the piece looks good I love saving money for everyone involved. In fact, you will learn there is nothing that pleases me like a good deal!!! You might have a couch, dining room table or any of a number of pieces that might fit in the design. Maybe we stay with the dining room table and get new updated chairs or vice versa. Big Sky, MT can be an expensive place for a second home and sometimes budgets can get a little tight after paying for the home. So we look at the overall theme and if we can use present pieces or pieces from home and still have a professional looking interior decorated home, we do it! You don’t have to tell your friends that if you don’t want to. Mums the word from me and I feel like that is part of my talent! I think it is very important for me to note, I am interested in you being pleased both in the looks and what everything costs.

How we do this is after deciding the theme, we see what fits. Ideally, you don’t want the existing furniture to drive the decor. We have done it that way and it has worked for the most part but that is not the ideal situation. You don’t want to force the interior decorating in your mountain home in Big Sky. It should fit. If it doesn’t fit, I have connections where I can sell your furniture to offset budget costs if you would like. So you can send me photos of pieces and we make mutual decisions on whether something might work. What you will find is I like deals and spend your money like it is my own. Very carefully!

Should you have an Interior Design project coming up in Big Sky Montana please feel free to get in touch with us so we can discuss your Big Sky, MT dream home. You can also check us out on Houzz or Pinterest to see some of our collection of projects or ideas that we will use to help determine your tastes and likes. You can also find us on Facebook or check out our Portfolio page. I love Interior Decorating in Big Sky, MT! One of the most beautiful places in the world!

Big Sky MT Interior Designer – My Tastes vs Your Tastes – You Win!

Montana mountain view cabin sitting area

My Interior Design Tastes vs Your Interior Design Tastes-You Win! – Big Sky MT Interior Designer

I’m going to start writing blog posts on some of the most common questions clients ask before hiring an Interior Designer. These are questions that come up across the board no matter the size of house, budget, style, location, etc…Let’s take Big Sky, MT where I live and do Interior Design, as an example. Big Sky is a ski resort with a wide variance of developments. You can have very large homes in super high end developments such as: Spanish Peaks, Yellowstone Club and Moonlight Basin. Then, on the other end, we have more modest homes in the meadow and mountains surrounding Big Sky. Big Sky Resort was started in the early 70’s, so you are looking at many homes and developments that are 30+ years old. So, you have many homes that need updating to maximize their Big Sky, MT Real Estate values. If you are going to be successful as a Big Sky MT Interior Designer, you have to be adaptable. You better be able to do Rustic, Rustic Modern, Ski Chalet, Cabin look, Modern, European, Lodge and whatever else clients want. It is enjoyable to decorate in different styles and keeps me excited and energized!

Which gets me to the title of this post. When I decorate am I decorating for my tastes or yours? First of all, I am not decorating for my portfolio or to please myself. I please the client first and get my satisfaction out of bringing their tastes together to make a home they can love and enjoy. So how do I learn your tastes? There are a number of ways! We do a lot of talking! The more, the better! This is easy for me because I love to talk and make new friends! We use to show pictures out of magazines to find someone’s Interior Decorating likes and styles. I still have piles of them! Now, I can send you to my Pinterest, Houzz, or Webpage. You pin or like my ideas or share your ideas. We can even have a private page that just you and me and maybe a friend that knows your tastes can visit and make notes and comments. This leads to a discussion where we start to get to know each other(remember friends). If you are in Big Sky, we go see houses I have decorated and go shopping together for an afternoon. When the buying starts I send pictures at first asking for feedback. Do you like this? What do you think of this? I have done over 100 projects between Montana and Texas so the system works. Most, all the items I purchase are returnable and we usually will return a couple of things that don’t fit your idea of the house.

This whole process is to try and get inside your head a bit from a Big Sky MT Interior Designer standpoint. A good Interior Designer picks up on the little things and comments you make such as: Love this, To die For, I’d Marry That, Gotta have that, Yes, and all the other funny things I’ve heard through the years. This process is all about us having fun while turning your Big Sky, MT home into something you love!

Feel free to visit my Houzz, Pinterest or Facebook page or look at our Portfolio section to see some of the recent projects we have had the honor of doing! If you have a need for a Big Sky MT Interior Designer and have a project please feel free to call or email me. It’s easy, I live in this beautiful place! Contact me.

If you liked this article, you might find this one on What size Interior Design budgets we deal with here.

Front Porch located in Big Sky, MT

Montana Interior Design Firm – What Size Interior Design budgets do you work with?

Living Room-Big Sky, MT

Montana Interior Design Firm – What Size Budgets Do You Work With?

This will be one of the first questions my future interior design clients will ask me. Big Sky, MT can be an expensive place but doesn’t always have to be. Budgets, first of all, depend on the scope of the design project. A Montana Interior Design Firm can save you money just from being local.

Are we talking about a home that someone purchased furnished that you just need to spruce up with accessories and bedding?

Is it a rental unit that needs to have pieces added to maximize rental revenue?

Do we need to open up a floor plan to make the home flow easier?

Are we repainting, new floors, tile, etc…

Project Scope Defines Budget

Being a Big Sky Interior Designer, I am usually dealing with 2nd homes for absentee owners. That means I get involved and help watch over a number of different facets, as you can see from above. Furnishing is just one of many things I do here in Big Sky as an Interior Designer. A third of the time, the Interior Design project involves some construction facet along with furnishing the home. That means hours spent picking finishes, paint colors, floors, tile and talking with the construction crews on schedules, order of installation and just getting the job done right. This seems to be the most overwhelming part to homeowners. This is where it is nice to have professional help in picking complimentary finishes and colors. If you are someone that enjoys being more involved in the choices of finishes, paint colors and tiles, it is nice to have someone to bounce ideas or confirm choices.

Once the construction ends, the furnishing begins. I will have done a great deal of background work so we will have furnishings moving in as the construction crews go out. So when someone wants to talk budget sizes it can be a very wide variance of numbers. We have done simple bedding projects for as little as $3000 and have done construction oversight, interior design and furnishing for as much as $500,000. A wide variance but when you consider that we have a number of factors that me might get involved in or it might be a very simple interior decorating job where we are just freshening up a house it begins to make sense. You have to be versatile to be a Big Sky Interior Designer. Big Sky has older developments that are being freshened up and new developments like, Moonlight, Spanish Peaks or Yellowstone Club where new homes are being built.

The best way to get a budget is for you to have a general idea of what you are wanting to do with your home. We can give you a rough ballpark figure over the phone. We are all about maximizing value and how you interior decorate your home in Big Sky will have an impact on what you get in return both as a rental or if you eventually want to sell it after you enjoy it. That means we might give you two ranges or suggest a few pieces where you will not want to skimp. What we have found over the years is those clients that are so tightly budget minded might short change themselves on maximizing value of their home due to a few thousand dollars. I respect that decision, just feel we are not doing our job if we don’t give options that potentially maximize your asset.

Interior design budgets depend on the scope of the work, what you have in mind for a home and how far along you are with the vision of what you want your home to look like. It also depends on what step of the process we are brought in. Many times we can save you significant dollars if we are early enough in the process to help conceptualize furniture and make suggestions on finishes. Being a Montana Interior Design Firm we know what finishes, furniture and accessories are readily available here in Montana. That can be a big advantage in our little town of Big Sky!

I hope you have found this helpful. There are so many factors in Big Sky, MT that can affect your budget for Interior Design and Construction. Time of the year, difficulty of getting product to sight, availability of labor, etc…If you have a project coming up that you are going to need a Montana Interior Design Firm that actually is in Big Sky please contact us. We would love to help and if you want to see some of our projects you can visit our Portfolio pages or you can visit us on Houzz, Pinterest or Facebook.

Big Sky, MT Interior Design Redo

Sometimes we get real excited and go out and do something out of the norm! This is our 2nd home that we have purchased out of foreclosure to redo. We look for a home that has good bones that is outdated and maybe been neglected the last few years. Then we get after the Interior Design part of it! We knock out walls to open the floor plan, widen doors, give it new flooring and carpeting. New architectural accents with porch downstairs, shutters and window seat in master. Then finish it with new paint, new lighting, new front deck and new landscaping. It turned out very nice and has had rave reviews from Realtors in Big Sky. This home is in the Aspengrove neighborhood of Big Sky, MT. From an interior design standpoint this is the type neighborhood that we think anyone would love to live in. Quiet, wildlife, off the beaten path but still has great access to the mountain and town. The house is set off from the road a good distance, set in it’s own forest of pine trees with good views. You will see moose, elk, deer and maybe a bear or two. The goal as an Interior Designer was to have the house fit in to the natural surroundings of Big Sky. It needed to accent what was already put there by Mother Nature. All the feedback is that we did a good job in doing that on this Big Sky, MT redo! Please feel free to contact us if you have a home in Big Sky, MT that needs a loving touch!
