GOLD- Residential New Construction 3,500-7000 sq ft.
Nestled along the bank of the Beaverhead River in Montana, this sportsman’s lodge provides its owner and his guests a retreat from their busy lives. The maverick embodies the Western spirit and as such there are long days out in the wilderness to be followed by lively evenings at home. The deep connection between the surrounding landscape and the interior environment is evidenced by the dedicated use of wood and stone throughout the home, the same elements found in the surrounding environment.
The living room where people gather is outfitted in warm natural tones and materials that stand-up to the rugged lifestyle. The custom hand-hammered iron chandelier; mohair, leather, and fur upholstery; antique French fruitwood cocktail table; custom leather Jean De Merry lounge chair next to the fireplace; and a unique floor lamp from Senegal in venne wood, all add stylish layers to the rustic interior. Though this space may seem too luxurious for dusty boots, performance materials and rugged furnishings were thoughtfully planned to live up to the client’s day.
This outdoorsman knows how to soak into the natural surroundings to disconnect and re-charge. His space, true to the region’s history and environment, reflects the same.
