About the Project
“Not too fancy, but very sophisticated” are the words the homeowner used to describe how she wanted her new ski house to look and feel. Beefy and bold, yet subtle and refined finishes and furnishings evoke the sophistication of ski resorts in Colorado and the warmth of Austrian chalets. Large-scale furnishings in a limited color palette stand up to the enormous volume of space found throughout the house. Varying textures create interest while the sparing use of the color red provides a little pop, and subtle references to the winter sports theme appear in the antique sleds over the fireplaces, the ski pole basket shaped bases of the bar stools, and the custom gondola lighting perched above a bed.
