Impressive wooden house in the mountains

Based in New York City and Newport Beach, California, M. Elle Design is a mother-daughter team that strives to combine understated elegance and comfort. The team is comprised of Mary Lynn Turner, a Southern California-based Interior Designers for over 30 years, and her daughters Marie and Emily Turner. With an impressive design portfolio, it is easy to see how the designer’s have made Elle Decor’s five to watch list.

This stunning home in the mountains is both warm and cozy, situated amidst conifer trees like a dream. This home features an understated elegance with its wood cladding, aged wooden beams and stone trimmings. For most, gray is a color that is typically not popular to immerse your surroundings in, but the way it has been used here is exceptional. The designer’s like to blend contemporary and old-world to create timeless casual chic. It seems they have blended these styles to perfection in this home.

What I love the most is that is see not one square foot of sheet rock or plaster! The painted wood walls communicate a special authenticity. This project reminds me of the earliest (and little known) American ranch homes designed by Cliff May. Very fine work.

Great interior, simple and beautiful.

I love the organic but yet very modern design and it blends all wonderfully ! That is what we tried to accomplish in our house to combine contemporary with natural wood and white elements.

Love the rustic but modern feel to this mountain home.

This has to be one of the most beautifully designed houses I have seen in a long time. Not cold and sterile looking like a lot of the houses that are being shown around the net. I love it!
