Hello there from the frozen tundra. Yes we survived “snowmageddon” thanks to the trusty work of CNN’S blizzardmobile, lol. If you missed my post on what I really think about the weather reporters, you must click here to visit my last post. For some reason I have always loved and been inspired by beautiful mountain/lodge homes, farms, horses in “big sky” states like? Wyoming, Utah, Montana, Colorado. And the older I get the more I can imagine one day owning a beautiful home/farm in one of those naturally beautiful states or at least having that lifestyle somewhere. Now being my husband loves any excuse to channel his inner cowboy and that we both LOVE horses…….think it’s safe to say we could have an awful lot of fun! I absolutely love the warmth of the interiors, the rich rustic woods and beautiful colors with the vistas outside of every window being that of a postcard. What’s not to love? I imagine getting our eventual extended family together, our sons with their future wives and children…..what fun! So today this post is dedicated to that dream and for anyone else who has been captivated by that lifestyle or for anyone who just loves to see beautiful interiors. This ones for you…… Now this living room I could get used to…imagine being inside with a roaring fire while a huge snowstorm brews outside, so cozy! Proof that elegance and rustic can be done to perfection, Toad Hall How about this for a powder room…oh yes! Mary Bidets, Locati Architects ??????????????????????????????????? I would love to have a room like this, even? my “big boys” I think would fight over who gets top bunk:) And that includes my husband (OK and me) Isn’t this staircase? wonderful, a real work of art.? Locati Builders This might be a guest room, love the paler wood, pretty, don’t you think? I imagine my husband ala the resident cowboy might want to set up a cozy beautiful bar just like this one… It would be heavenly to have an outside covered area like this, imagine it during a snowstorm and with a cup of hot chocolate and a roaring fire, Locati Have had this picture in my online treasure trove of pictures for a long time, soooo love this dining room! ?Proof that I can bring my beloved blue and white to my future lodge home:) This is pretty fabulous! HGTV How incredible is this wine cellar? Yes please. Simmons Building This front entrance just invites you in…..(maybe without the tiger on second thought) Evening drinks would be enjoyed on this side porch with it’s outdoor fireplace This would be my inspiration for my kitchen in my dream mountain home, AD A home of this type calls for a lot of rustic woods in the kitchen and of course a big picture window If I could have a porch like this, I swear this is where I would spend all of my time….afternoon coffee, late afternoon cocktails, dinner for two? Now this is what I call a mudroom! Gorgeous and one Ralph Lauren himself would approve of Wouldn’t call this exactly roughing it…… Wouldn’t a bar like this cozy set up be amazing Could this get any cozier? Or this bunk room would do just fine, Canadian Log Homes This might just be my bedroom, the wood timber bed is fabulous! Circa Have always loved this room, it is so incredibly cozy but oozes elegance, Suzanne Kasler So….what do you think? Does this have you dreaming of your own wild west abode? I think this proves that you certainly do not by any means have to sacrifice elegance or sophistication for this particular style home, the two go hand in hand quite beautifully. And the richness of the woods, colors and textures is so appealing, warm and inviting. If you want to see even more of these types of homes/interiors, I have devoted an entire Pinterest board to it, click here to see. Hey…..you never know if there might not be an enchanted mountain home in my future:)? Would love to hear what you think about this style home. Wishing everyone a wonderful (and hopefully warm) day! Until next time….
