The lower level of the vacation home contains the large living area with vaulted ceiling exposed wooden beams and stunning lighting. Next to it is the cozy family area kitchen and dining room that open up toward the mesmerizing snow-clad mountains in the distance.
The limited interior across two levels features a pleasantly captivating blend of contrasting styles that range from the industrial to the minimal. Contemporary décor is carefully combined with antique pieces vintage elements and rustic surfaces even while stitching together a home that feels both eclectic and chic.
