Antler chandeliers and elk art prints increasingly have some competition with metal lamp shades and abstract photography. The desire for the Colorado standard of rustic log and stone is falling to the simple color schemes and clean lines of a contemporary home design. If you are looking for that Colorado nostalgia and you favor the subtle feel of a modern home, mountain meets contemporary for a “Mountain Modern” home at 3407 Apres Ski Way in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
Post and Beam construction with handscribed pine for that slightly rustic log look. Rock accents, rusted metal roofs and beautiful contemporary interior finishes fill the desire for a mountain modern home. When you enter the front door, you’ll most likely mumble “Wow!”. The great room spans 30ft with very tall exposed beam ceilings. The kitchen has 2 dishwashers and a 6 burner gas range - again “Wow!”.
Recent sales and modern designs in new speculation homes being built today, are further proof this change has taken hold. Not to soon for my wife and modern artist Michelle Ideus (painting pictured above) who was fortunate to kickoff this trend when One Steamboat Place purchased her paintings and prints to be displayed in most every condominium unit. One Steamboat Place is now very close to selling out.
