Inside a stunning Montana mountain house with elegant and rustic interiors

modern rustic mountain home exterior entry

This incredible mountain house was designed as a welcoming retreat by architect Kirk Michels together with Urbaine Atelier in the Yellowstone Club, a private resort community just west of Big Sky, Montana. Created for a couple from Florida, the interior design of this classic lodge-style home is influenced by the owner’s distinct backgrounds.

Inside, you will find stacked stone, rustic wood ceiling beams, and chinked walls. The owners desired a log home yet with a contemporary feel—the furnishings and decor nod to the wife’s Peruvian heritage and the husband’s Scottish roots.

To create a balance of rustic and contemporary styles, the design team added contrasting finishes to select interior spaces. This includes plaster on the ceiling in the dining room and main bedroom suite—balancing the rougher wood elements.
