Interior Decorating Big Sky MT -Cozy Big Sky Ski Cabin

Here is a project we did on the slopes of Big Sky Resort. Interior Decorating in Big Sky MT allows me to look at some of the most incredible views while working on client’s homes. Sometimes when you are interior decorating in Big Sky space becomes one of the most important considerations.This is a cozy cabin built right on the slopes of Big Sky, MT. A small two bedroom cabin that needed to maximize space while bringing in color and giving an inviting place to enjoy after a day on the slopes. The interior decorating included new carpet, rug, antler accents and bringing in bright reds and comfy leather sofa and chairs. This Big Sky ski cabin is all about skiing, rustic log accents and showing off the wildlife of our beautiful area. This kind of interior decorating can vastly improve the amount of return a home can get from vacation rentals. It creates a place to enjoy at the end of the day!

Modern Big Sky Ski House

This project was a modern Big Sky Ski House. We call it Modern Mountain Rustic. Clean lines and bright colors with modern leather mixed in. It is a beautiful modern Big Sky ski house in a beautiful setting. Big Sky Interior Design is about adapting to the client and giving them a house that they can be proud of and live comfortably for years to come. This was an enjoyable project to be a part of since it was a change from what we normally do here in Big Sky! This is a ski in/ski out home right on the mountain.

Mountain View Cabin Design Project in Big Sky, MT.

You should see the views from this very secluded Mountain View Cabin. This interior design project was a joy to work on and every time we drove up we had to run the wildlife off to get into the cabin! There were two cabins and a lodge to this property that needed some love. Our clients had the vision to turn this property into a showcase of a mountain view cabin that they could be proud of! This is the beauty of Big Sky is finding out of the way places that are decorated well so you can stay in or go into town for any of a number of activities. We would have never even known this property existed at the top of a vista that overlooks all of Big Sky and the surrounding mountain ranges.

This project is ideal for a romantic getaway. Creating a place you don’t want to leave is something we pride ourselves on! Of course, we realize at some point you have to go fishing, horse back riding, skiing or go into the Park! The greatest part is coming back to your Mountain View Cabin for the night and waking up to see what wildlife will be out your front door in the morning!

Mountain Ski Cabin Big Sky, MT

This is a classic Mountain Ski Cabin Big Sky, MT log home that was a redesign to make a warm and inviting home close to the ski area. Using leathers, animal rugs, Kilim rug, Moose head and Moose Chandelier. It was about bringing in neutrals and accenting with bright colors to make you say Aah! when you walk into the home. After a hard days skiing it is nice to come in and relax in a comfy home decorated in Montana Mountain Rustic theme. At Tatom Design, we want to create an inviting house that is durable yet very stylish. That fits with the clients taste and style for this Mountain Ski Cabin in Big Sky, MT.

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!

Fly Fishing the Madison River Height 600

Quite a few people head through Big Sky for fly fishing vacations. You have quite a few choices of blue ribbon streams to choose from but I thought I would talk about the Madison River on this post. The Madison River is known for larger fish than the Gallatin and from Big Sky you have two choices of where to go fish the Madison(Maddy).

If you want a calm float you head north towards Bozeman and then take a left at 4Corners(Main & 191). Stay on that road and you run into the Maddy in about 30 minutes. This is called the Lower Maddy and is good for early season, winter fishing and beginning drift boaters. It is about a 7 mile float from Warm Springs to Black’s Ford. Where you run into the river is Black’s Ford. Just keep following the road upstream for 7 miles and you can’t miss Warm Springs. A calm river here, it is much more forgiving for a beginner’s float. You can still screw up but if you have rowed a canoe and pay attention it is the perfect classroom. Why early season and winter? Because this is float tube central during the summer and the temperature’s get high enough that fish are sluggish and get stressed easily. The float tubing is fun and can be anyone from college kids to families floating down the river. Pretty shallow and you can stand up in most places so it is nice for families. We float it while one person drives the RV to one of the pullouts and you can get out eat, relax and then continue on down the river. It is a 2-3 hour float or drift. If you are drift boating it is a good idea to stop and wade fish a nice pool.

The upper Maddy is a different river. You would drive south from Big Sky and turn right on 287 near Hebgen Lake. Continue past Quake Lake and you are quickly at the Upper Maddy. From Big Sky it is about 1.5 hours to the start. You can fish all the way into Ennis. The river has boulders and is a bigger river and opportunities for big fish. Not made for your first drift boat trip you have ever taken but once you know how to handle a drift boat it would be wise to take someone that has done it before and give it a try. Boats are turned over in this part of the Maddy and most all of us are going to bounce off at least one boulder on the float. Not trying to scare anyone just want everyone to be safe. You can wade in numerous spots. I would carry a wading stick to steady yourself. Three dollar bridge is a famous place to wade from. There are numerous public put ins and there are numerous opinions on which is the best float. You will most likely see several low bridges(rods down), buffalo jumps and a few bald eagles. I love to float this part during late summer, early fall when the hopper hatch is going on. Always, fish with a buddy and stay within eyesight of each other.

I would always talk to local fly shops and if you haven’t fly fished much I would highly recommend getting a guide for a day. Doesn’t guarantee you will catch fish but it certainly increases the odds and you will learn a lot.

One last very important thing! If you have a child that would like to catch a trout, take him/her over to Ennis and get some worms and a bobber at the grocery store and go to the pond. Fun will ensue! Click on the pic of my daughter to see the size fish you can catch. Just make sure and put them back so another child can have the same amount of fun!

Until next time, I hope you get a chance to enjoy Big Sky and if you need an Interior Decorator please let us know.

Thanks,
