Creamy, dreamy interiors are as soothing as a café au lait among the bold, espresso-hued interiors of the west.
The great room evokes a fresh Provencal feel complete with light white walls, towering french-paned windows, and traditional furnishings. A natural stone fireplace and rustic, rough-hewn beams maintain a relationship to the western, high-mountain setting.
An enchanting, open kitchen is enhanced by artful lighting. The dark granite countertops and rustic barstools “anchor” the ethereal color palette. The farmhouse-luxe, reclaimed wood floors add additional warmth.
Understated French-country style is perfected in a breakfast room illuminated by a chic, look-at-me chandelier. The pretty dining chairs and delicate console are bucked up by a substantial, straightforward table.
A deep soaking tub occupies the corner of this glass-walled bathing room.
French country motifs including a wrought iron rooster chandelier and checked fabric on the chairs maintain the European ambiance. The dark dining table adds the requisite “grounding” and a gilded painting and crystal candlesticks ensure one knows this is a formal dining space.
