Big Sky Rustic Mountain Home Redo

Welcome to our favorite Rustic Mountain home redo!

We love redoing properties, but helping put our client’s own stamp on their mountain homes is our favorite part. Our design team completely customized this remodel to our client’s rustic, reclaimed style! We mixed reclaimed lumber and modern metalwork throughout the remodel, which helped update the space while paying tribute to traditional textures. We used beautiful cream colors juxtaposed against rustic metalwork and reclaimed wood in the entryway. Personally, we believe this comparison highlights the unique traditional and rustic style in the home.

One of our favorite custom features is located in the upstairs bedroom. Our contractor constructed the doorway using modern iron and glass which provides an intriguing entry to the remodeled room. We further updated the upstairs bedroom with custom stonework and reclaimed wood around the fireplace. We are thrilled with the result and can’t wait to take on similar projects that test our ability to design unique spaces.

Are you looking to combine your favorite styles in your Montana home? Reach out to us today and we can begin designing your own rustic mountain home!

A special thanks to our partners on this incredible project: Centre Sky Architecture, Montana Custom Build, and  Homestead Woods Inc.

Rustic Modern Rental Property

This incredible Silver Tip mountain home was so fun to furnish.  This project was an incredibly quick turnaround on a budget. We had 6 weeks to get this house ready for rentals! Designing in Big Sky is always a challenge. Adding a tight deadline means you have to get creative and rely on local Big Sky and Bozeman craftsman, and great local furniture stores like Montana Expressions to get the job done! We added a 10-foot kitchen island instead of a dining area to create a casual dining space for a more functional vacation home design. We created 3 master suites to accommodate the needs for this ski property. To further extend the use of this mountain cabin, we also added 2 bunk rooms that are perfect for large families traveling together. The art featured in the home was curated and customized by a great local artist, Tehya Braun. We loved using her paintings to add fun pops of color. In the spirit of creating a functional and practical mountain, rental property all of the material we used were made with performance fabrics. We loved creating this rustic and modern vacation rental in beautiful Big Sky MT.

Rustic Modern Interior Design-Timeless or a Fad?

We have been doing a Rustic Modern style on a number of homes here in Big Sky Montana. I get asked whether this style is going to be dated or a fad when discussing client’s tastes. Rustic Modern is mostly about open, clean living and if done right it can be timeless! That being said when you start walking in Target and seeing rustic modern knockoff furniture everywhere and then go get a coffee and overhear someone talking about doing their house in rustic modern, we might have reached a saturation level. Just kidding! My opinion, if done right the simplification and clean, muted colors have a long time before they become dated in our busy lives craving simple, beautiful living. I’m going to outline my tenets of Rustic Modern Interior Design.

 

Rustic Modern Building Materials

Rustic modern style is about beautiful but low maintenance clean lines. It is about bringing rustic warmth with modern amenities. Outside of the house can be reclaimed wood, stone with clean lines and concrete that might be treated or stained. Once you walk in the home it is about bringing nature inside with big windows and an open floor plan. The windows, of course, need to be wood. This is one area you don’t want to skimp on with a rustic modern style. Don’t forget the 5th wall(ceiling)which is not ignored in a Rustic Modern style. At the very least, you can do faux beams but most times you finish the ceiling in wood with beams to accent and add to the home. Remember, we are trying to bring nature inside with the warmth of wood.

 

Rustic Modern Interior 

Colors are going to be neutral, calming colors and the use of natural fabrics and animal rugs to add to the simple living. The kitchen should be very updated with appliances with clean lines and low care maintenance. The furniture is modern using leathers, natural fabrics and neutral colors with clean angular lines. Each person has their own tastes and I recently had a client where we did Rustic Modern and she is a color girl. We added some color with pillows and art. There is a very famous quote by an Interior Designer named Bunny Williams, “If you love something, it will work. That’s the only real rule.” She loved it and I loved it and most importantly, it worked for her and her family.

 

Rustic Lighting and Accessories

Lighting gives you the opportunity to add details and create the modern part of the Rustic Modern Interior Design. The shapes, type of lighting, shades, chandelier and sconces. The chandeliers, lamps and sconces can be metal with carefully chosen light to accent your modern look. It is your opportunity to make a statement and tie everything in between modern and rustic! Your accessories should accent everything else you have already done. Say if you have gone with lots of chrome on the furniture you can add silver trays, antlers and put skins on tables and floor and tie in with mirrors and other things that give the home a edgy look. We have chosen to do just blinds as window treatments in our modern rustic look.
