When you think of vacationing in the northwest, does a rustic cabin surrounded by towering evergreens come to mind as the perfect place to stay? Today’s home by Dan Joseph Architects reminds me of excursions out west to the Grand Tetons. I especially love this home’s vanishing edge waterfall out front, that I’m assuming is man-made but gorgeous, nevertheless.
Decking leads right to the edge of the pond which finds its way to the refreshing waterfall. This is the perfect spot to dangle your feet into the pond and enjoy the great beauty around you. I think I’d set up a cot out here and sleep under the stars. If you read my blog regularly, you know how much I love water features, including my own little garden pond.
Warm and welcoming interiors await when you step inside the Montana homefront. Tree trunk beams combine with rich stone and soft furnishings to create a comfortable and impressive living space.
A lot of wood in a room can sometimes feel dark and overbearing, but today’s cabin has enough windows and a good traffic pattern to keep the eye flowing. The color red, as seen in the dining chairs, always adds energy to a room, too.
I love the shade of green brushed onto some of the kitchen cabinetry. It adds an unexpected element and a bit of whimsy. And look at that view out the window. I’ll bet they have deer and maybe even a bear or two that wanders by.
A gorgeous wooden sink that looks like a converted antique dough bowl takes center stage in one of the bathrooms. Note the sliding door barn you see reflected in the mirror.
An impressive, wood beamed vaulted ceiling in the bedroom creates an air of spaciousness and coziness all at the same time. Windows allow your eye to wander outside into the forest of evergreens.
Color is added by way of the upholstered headboard and area rug in southwestern patterns and hues.
