Enchanting rustic bunkhouse provides a welcoming retreat in Montana

bunkhouse-rustic-exterior

Studio Architects in collaboration with Carter Kay Interiors is responsible for the design of this rustic bunkhouse located in Ennis, Montana. Owned by a pair of couples from Texas, this guesthouse was built to compliment the main house, which we featured here. The bunkhouse would host the couples, adult children and grandchildren to come for a visit. This cozy home encompasses 1,600 square feet (149 square meters) of living space with three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The owners enjoy entertaining and hosting overnight guests, so building this guesthouse was the perfect solution. Nestled along the Madison River Valley, those who visit the ranch come for what the area is famous for, fly fishing. The direction of the interior design of this home is centered around a piece of art, a painting of a fly fisherman.

Colors were picked up from the painting and dispersed throughout the home, blues, greens, and khakis. The painting now decorates one of the bedrooms, hung over a custom-designed console table with iron legs, vintage gears, and a reclaimed wood top. Each one of the bedrooms has a private door that leads out to the exterior of the home. With the main house nearby, this allows everyone to be on their own schedule without disturbing other guests staying in the bunkhouse

The main entryway sets a casual tone with slate flooring that is easy to clean and a bench for taking off or putting on your shoes.

Above the console table is the piece of artwork that set off the interior design direction of the home (the color palette was selected from the hues in the painting).

The living room is very comfortable and casual, inviting you to sit down and have a great conversation. The living space is open to a breakfast nook and a small kitchen, a perfect arrangement for family gatherings. The wooden horses were discovered at a flea market, setting off a playful tone. There is a real Western flair that has been created in this space, with the hide chairs, wooden coffee table and blue denim fabric on the sofa, as well as the warm wood flooring.

What We Love: This rustic bunkhouse offers a cozy respite for visiting guests to luxuriate. A fantastic material selection of reclaimed wood, cedar roof shingles, and rusted metal appears like an old structure that has been given new life. Spaces are cozy and inviting thanks to a beautiful mix of antiques, vintage furnishings, and art for a playful, simple style.

This cool light fixture was custom designed for the dining space, crafted to simulate Montana ranch fences and ropes.

This small kitchen was designed with the idea that it would be more of a breakfast kitchen than a full kitchen. The owners wanted everyone to dine together, so they equipped the small space with just the essentials, such as a microwave and a spot for grabbing some coffee on the go.

To create warmth in the kitchen, countertops were crafted from reclaimed wood, as were the shelves. The area rug adds a pop of color to this space.

The home offers to master bedrooms on either side of the living area, with a third bedroom connected to this master, offering twin beds for the children. The walls are clad in a tongue and groove and wooden beams decorate the ceiling. A series of photographs above the bed adds a pop of color. The flooring is a cheetah print, adding personality to this inviting bedroom.

This dresser came as a set that was discovered while out on a shopping excursion for antiques; they were refinished to fit into the design scheme of each of the master bedrooms. The one pictured above was finished in a gray wash. The colorful vintage scarab scroll above the dresser was selected as a fun nod to the family’s history in the pest control business.
