Log Homes/Mountain Retreats

Mountain homes, whether in the Rockies, the Sierras, or Flagstaff Arizona, have a different palette of materials than their urban counterparts. The environment is usually colder, so a warm comfortable place to relax by a fire is greatly appreciated. When doing a project in a mountain community, we find ourselves leaning toward the use of more wood on the interior of the home, whether it's actual logs, as in these 2 examples, or in the use of wood paneling on the walls and ceilings. Rich colors go beautifully with the earthy tones of wood, and area rugs add wonderful finishing touches to the overall scene.
