As I have mentioned before, I love a modern mountain house. If you are going to have a vacation home, you may as well keep your space clean, simple, and refined. Everyday life brings enough clutter as it is! The home in Aspen, which I am currently staying as a house guest, took a modern approach in their remodel, and let me tell you it feels right. Your interiors should compliment your exterior surroundings, especially when your view is so breathtakingly beautiful.
Today, I wanted to feature an Aspen home that takes a more sophisticated, simplistic, and contemporary approach to decor. This home is built by Studio B Architects and designed by Studio Sofield. They did an excellent job making the mountain view apart of the indoor design. The wood paneling and beautiful marble work is awe-inspiring.
The home was featured last year in Architectural Digest. Photos by Scott Frances.
The home sits directly on Red Mountain in Aspen, Colorado. I love the stone and mahogany exterior.
The house is full of windows that bring a great amount of light into the clean spaces full of texture and natural materials.
A modern glass railing and allows the upstairs to take-in the view.
An accordion window in the corner banquet gives breathtaking views and really allows the outdoors to be the focal point.
A stainless backsplash and sharp lines help the kitchen blend into the home.
A perfect space for entertaining. I love the wood walls and ceiling. No corner was left unaccounted for.
A sleek oak-paneled media room. The back of the custom Studio Sofield sofa is very interesting.
A black-walnut staircase. I can’t get enough of the great juxtaposition of natural elements in the home.
Can you believe this Burma-teak marble wall? Seriously, that just looks phenomenal against the Waterworks tub.
The master bedroom is adorned with perforated suede wall panels. A soft and warm look. I love the oversized kimono hanging from the ceiling.
A little marble, a little wood, a little stone, a little glass. A lot of design!
A vintage George Nakashima bed. Incredible for a guest room.
A simple and modern dressing room. I love how the doors go all the way to the ceiling.
The intricate mottled details of the Esmeralda onyx are showcased by the wide plank wood floors. It gives the appearance of a gorgeous sheet of Florentine paper.
Serene, simple, and clean.
This home is a little different from my personal style, but I love many of the elements used for a mountain house.
