This Montana ranch house gets a cozy update with peaceful river views

This modern rustic ranch house was reimagined for family living by Kylee Shintaffer Design, nestled next to a fishing river in Montana. A modest home was gutted and re-configured to better suit the client’s needs. Finishes sourced locally were employed to be more authentic to a building that could have always been there and was complimentary to the home’s surroundings.

The furnishings and fabrics were carefully curated to reflect the rustic architecture but to also express a spirit of refinement and sophistication while feeling fresh and current. The house is filled with antiques and pieces crafted by artisans, creating an interior that feels as authentic as the land surrounding it.

I have never seen a better designed interior. Comfortable, not overly decorated, a delight to the eyes, AND window coverings over the large windows artfully placed. Bravo!
