Featured Home: Colorado Modern

Known for its beautiful mountains and unapparelled ski slopes, Colorado boasts a rugged style all its own. Often reflected in architectural design through the use of rough-hewn beams, wrought iron, and rich hues in wood flooring, sometimes the effect can be overwhelming—great in a mountain cabin, but maybe not so much in a suburban setting.

This month’s featured home proves that you can have both—a touch of rustic, with a modern twist.

An open great room defined by darkly-stained wood beams on the vaulted ceiling looks into the crisp white kitchen, where stainless appliances and modern pendant lighting pose a pleasing contrast.

The Mountain Ledge stacked stone on the fireplace with an Alder mantle matching the beams creates a Colorado mood, bringing visions of chilly winter evenings spent by a cozy fire.

The view from the kitchen, with light pouring in from the surrounding banks of windows, can’t be beat!

while the glowing ivory quartz on the perimeter counter tops leans more to the modern. Don’t miss the the peek into the owner’s entry, where shiplap cubbies wait to hold coats and shoes.

An elegant study with double, full-light doors can be found off of the foyer, tucked quietly in the front of the home.

The more traditional painted balusters and stained newels of the open handrail and the stained wood stairs pair well with the modern touch of vertical paneling on the facing wall.
