All About Home Design has created this mining inspired house that captures the perfect mix of grace and casual elegance, located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. When designing this gorgeous retreat, the designer looked to the past for inspiration, and then stepped forward and took a giant leap of imagination. The result is Mining inspired architecture reinterpreted with a contemporary, streamlined design. 

Set to capture the breathtaking surroundings and honor the natural landscape of the area, living in this home feels like “being on vacation” all year round. Cross the bridge to the front door and step inside this 3,382 square foot, four-bedroom and four-bathroom home. You will find rooms that harmoniously flow from one to another, providing generous spaces for family and friends to gather and grow together.

Industrial design details mixes with the colors and lines of Country French to create a feeling of warmth and vibrancy from the main living areas, through the bedrooms and work areas including a prep kitchen and homework room, to the Guest Cottage suite with its own living and kitchen spaces.

Reminiscent of a time when life was simpler and full of joy, this idyllic family home represents “comfort food”: a feeling of satisfaction and fulfillment.

What We Love: This mining inspired house design offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere thanks to wood floorings and layers of texture. Timeless in its design style, this is a home that turns family gatherings into family traditions with friends that will never wish to leave… courtesy of that incredible cottage guest suite! We think the exterior facade is absolute perfection — drawing from traditional vernacular mining structures of the region.

Tell Us: What do you think of this design style of this home? If this was your house, are there any details that you would have done differently? Please share your thoughts in the Comments, we love reading your feedback!

Note: Have a look at a couple of our favorite home tours that we have featured from the portfolio of the project team responsible for the design of this home: Urban farmhouse exudes a refreshingly chic style in the Rocky Mountains and Cottage style home showcases drool-worthy interiors in Colorado Springs.

The beautiful interiors feature wood floors with a vintage patina, decades-old beetle-kill ceiling beams and lavish uses of white woodwork and shiplap. The styles of furnishings are updated Country French with touches of industrial chic. Striking and sumptuous fabrics adorn black-framed windows. Furniture, accessories, and art add layers of color with an emphasis on cobalt blue and marigold yellow.

the house is not my style, but what i do like is that the architect accomplished what he set out to do. when i looked at the front elevation, it did remind me of the kind of structures that you would see in old mining settlements.

Absolutely loved it, colors, details and everything!! Can you share the color of the walls in the basement?

Another house designed and decorated by the crew that does TGI Fridays and Bubba Gumps restaurants, or the Vegas strip. When everything in the photos is decorative, it’s really hard to take, including contiguous rooms where one has a quasi-cathedral ceiling while the next is beamed with no deference to a structural rationale that could exist, it becomes a cartoon.
