In the middle of a hot summer, it’s nice to find a retreat in the middle of moody blues. These cool blues create a soothing atmosphere in our client’s Montana home. We found the great bear painting at Visions West in Bozeman while the expansive blue sky of Blue Sky inspired the serene tones. Whether the house is full of visitors on holiday or one is alone in the woods, it’s nice to have a quiet retreat…even if there are bears overhead.
Irrespective of whether one’s preference is for bourbon or beer, a drink is always welcome after a long day on a Montana ranch. For our client, we hung an antique pendant fixture over the long custom bar where leather stools reminiscent of saddles invite people to gather. Although small, this home bar is large on style.
Simplicity with sophistication and style is a Peace Design principle, and this ranch bar stirs our spirits.
With a custom walnut butcher block island anchoring the space, this chef’s kitchen in Montana proves that rustic interiors can be luxurious. Ample comfortable seating can accommodate many guests, yet the space feels equally welcoming for two. Mountain living may frequently be more casual and relaxed, but this kitchen proves that it can be refined and sophisticated.
