A Modern Mountain Retreat

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.

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.

Incredible Marble Bathroom

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.

This home is a little different from my personal style, but I love many of the elements used for a mountain house.
