Walton Architecture together with Aspen Leaf Interiors has completely reimagined this stunning mountain house nestled in Martis Camp, set amidst the setting of the pristine Martis Valley in Truckee, California. The goal of this project was to infuse the home with more light, introduce contrast to the predominantly brown color scheme, and cultivate a more contemporary and soothing aesthetic.

The homeowners desired a serene, zen-like living environment where they could enjoy the tranquility of the natural surroundings. The layout of this spacious dwelling is designed for hosting gatherings, offering ample private accommodations for family and friends. The open and airy great room highlights the sweeping mountain views and serves as a central gathering space.

To achieve the design aesthetic, the designers selected all new countertops, lighting and plumbing fixtures, tile for the showers, backsplashes and mirror surrounds, paint for the cabinets, as well as new furnishings, art, and accessories.

A light paint color was selected for the walls, while the beams, window trim, and baseboards were stained with a darker hue. The hardwood flooring was refinished, while reclaimed wood was added to certain walls to create more contrast and add warmth. All of the bathroom cabinets were painted white, and accented with mosaic tile.

The kitchen was updated to be much brighter with a stunning white Calacatta waterfall countertop, white glass mosaic backsplash and cabinets painted light grey. The stools are the Arteriors Henson Wood Iron Swivel Counter Stool, while the light fixtures are by Hubbardton Forge.

Careful furniture and fabric selections keep to a warm palette of whites and light greys and add texture with geometric patterns and plush sheepskin rugs and throws. Wall art made from natural elements and woods finishes the aesthetic.

The contemporary styling fused with rustic materials gives this home a refreshed look and feel. The result embraces the zen-like space the homeowners envisioned while keeping the classic Tahoe-style backbone of this 4,839 square foot home intact with the high ceilings, beams, and hardwood.
