This glass-filled modern mountain house in Martis Camp, a luxury community in Tahoe, California, was reimagined with a strong, masculine vibe by Jay Jeffers Studio. The four-bedroom dwelling was originally designed by Truckee-based Kelly & Stone Architects but needed a surface refresh to cater to the lifestyle needs of its inhabitants.

The designer changed out the lighting and enhanced what was already in the home, including accenting the walls with patterned wallpaper in a deep rich color and designing a custom headboard to fit the entire wall in the main bedroom. Continue below to see the rest of this spectacular home tour…

Above: The Dutch armchairs are custom upholstered in a graphic pattern from Pollack Fabric. Originally the dual-height wall on the right next to the steel-clad fireplace was all white. The designer felt this was too cold, so he applied a blue tartan wallpaper on the wall by Aesthetics Wallcoverings — lending a more tailored aesthetic.
