Vertical Arts Architecture crafted this Colorado mountain hideaway that blends casual and modern elements, nestled into the hillside of one of Steamboat Springs’ most beautiful valleys. This custom dwelling sits in a private enclave in the woods surrounded by an aspen grove with sweeping views over a nature preserve.

The homeowners were seeking a light, airy, and modern home that would be idyllic for indoor/outdoor entertaining and could accommodate guests from multiple generations. The magnificent home is positioned to capture the best views and includes a wrap-around porch and patio on the upper level and a walk-out patio on the lower level.

The home’s unique mix of materials begins outside and continues indoors. The beautiful warm tones of the cedar wood siding stand out against both the dark steel beams and bright white limestone.

Organic Plus Modern Interior Design

Inside the owner’s minimalist, modern style comes to life using a balance of casual furnishings and glam fixtures with nods to a rustic mountain style. The cedar ceiling and steel beams continue into the house, as does the honey-hued stonework of the fireplace complete with a concrete hearth. Seating areas feel tailored yet casual by incorporating cozy accessories on top of modern furniture.

casual modern kitchen

Above: In the kitchen, matte lacquer and rift oak slim shaker cabinets create crisp modern lines which are then accented by a delicate blue/gray glass tile backsplash. Nature-inspired and rustic touches such as the cowbell-shaped pendant lighting, steel end caps on the island, and wave pattern created by the tile complete the cohesive look.

Throughout the home, you’ll continue to find the juxtaposition of neutral tones and moody accents paired with glam and natural fixtures, such as the powder bath with deep green walls, dark stone tile, dimpled pendant lights, and gold fixtures.
