Designer Thom Filicia was responsible for the interior overhaul of this rustic log cabin that is surrounded by mature growth aspen trees in the Rocky Mountains of Vail, Colorado. This cozy home is an all-season weekend retreat for a family that resides full-time  in Boulder. During the winter, they enjoy outdoor activities of skiing, snowboarding, and sledding. While in the summer months, they visit a nearby ranch for horseback riding.

The ceiling is painted in Day’s End 2133-30 | Benjamin Moore.

For the interior decorating scheme, the designer selected some traditional pieces while mixing in eclectic objects from the families extensive travels around the world. This includes, “a French étagère, a Turkish kilim and an Indonesian rain drum used as a side table.” Not your typical furnishings, but the designer wanted to infuse some fresh ideas to make this home unique. Constructed in the 1990s, the architecture also needed some refreshing. The logs were lightened while the stone floors were sandblasted to remove residual finish. The aesthetic is now more natural, the place feels more crisp and chic.
