Contemporary Mountain Cabin

This is a contemporary mountain cabin located at the base of Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, MT. This was a particularly fun project to work on alongside our client who craved a unique design that would serve their family’s needs. Together, we centered this design with the use leathers, animal furs, clean lines and natural tones. The final product is a light, airy, and contemporary design that has the perfect natural palette for a mountain-modern dream home. We loved putting together this sophisticated yet functional design.

What do you need in your Montana dream home? Do you want a place to relax and recharge? We designed this log home to be a warm and inviting space to unwind after a long day of playing at the ski area close by.

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.

Can your Interior Designer help you make Money on Redoing a House?

Can you increase the value of a home by freshening, redesigning or changing the Interior Design before putting it on the market? As an Interior Designer in Big Sky we can only speak about SW Montana and from previous experience in Dallas, Tx but we definitely have seen it pay off time and again.

Let me ask you this. If you go into a home that has tastes that are several decades old versus a home that is up to date and furnished well, which are you going to drive a harder bargain for. One appeals to you and the other you know you will need to spend money to get it to the level you want. I know there are many factors that affect this decision such as location, needs, etc…but all things being equal putting a house on the market that is updated and shows well brings more money and sells it sooner than the other end of the spectrum. Over the last 18 months we have been asked by several realtors in Big Sky to freshen up a house that has been on the market for a while. Every time the Big Sky house sold quickly after putting it back on the market with the sell price being fairly close to the listing price. Coincidence? We don’t believe so! A redesign of at least part of the house gives buyers a vision and reduces some unknowns that affect home value. You certainly have to spend your money wisely but doing one or two rooms can change how buyers view the home.

The biggest rooms to consider are kitchen, den, master and master bathroom. Is it foolproof? No, but our experience is if you have two homes of comparable size and locale and one shows good taste in design and one does not it becomes easier for most buyers to trust what they see versus what they may not be able to picture.

Many times adding one accent or changing a few things that are out of date gives you an advantage over the rest of the competition in the market. At Tatom Design, we aren’t Realtors. They are the experts. We can only go by what we are being asked to do and what we have seen happen after helping a home become more desirable.
