We have been getting ALL SORTS of new things at the showroom in the last few months!  Lamps, rugs, accessories, mirrors, and lots and lots of pillows… and more is on the way!  Here is a little smattering of some of the newest gems!

 

This is just one of the many beautiful rugs we have- all different shapes and sizes!

2x3-Embers-Rojo

This glass pine cone platter is really pretty!  We also have smaller “dipping plates” to match.

We have lots of new adirondack twig and birch accessories, this is one of my favorites!

This is an Axis pillow- an Axis is an animal, have you ever heard of it?  The pillow is soft, and looks so neat and unique.

How cute is this zebra print rug?  It’s not real zebra, it’s actually a printed cowhide.  Pretty neat!

We got quite a few different types of vintage winter equipment- skis, snowshoes, snowshoe shelves, and snowshoe tables!  We’re pretty excited about them, they’re unique and perfect for Steamboat.

This candle holder is made from old tequila barrels, and holds three round candles.  We are also getting one that holds 5 candles, as well as wall sconces and vases!

This table-top is also made from an old tequila barrel.  It looks so great in person that we ordered four of them!

We also love this deerskin pillow.  The fringe and beads are a great western accent!

This faux fur pillow and throw are called the “feathers” collection… isn’t that a great name?  They’re so soft and fluffy, that the name fits perfectly.  They will help add a creative texture to any space.

Guess what?  We are currently help renovate and remodel an old bunk house near Estes Park, CO!  The house is super funky, crazy and unique.  It began as one very small building that was a livery (where animals are kept and boarded) years and years and years ago.  From there, new rooms were added one by one, so each room is on its own level, with its own ceiling height, and it’s own shape and angle!  It’s crazy!  But so much fun to work on- we get to come up with ideas to update the bunk house, while at the same time keeping it funky and historical.  Here are some of the design inspirations we’re using!

In our last post, we talked about how important small details can be in the overall scheme of design, and how sinks contribute so much bang for your buck.  We shared why we love farmhouse sinks, as well as some really neat unique variations on the traditional farmhouse sink.  Today, we’re doing the same thing with trough sinks!  What is a trough sink, you ask?  Well, let me start by saying that you will know it when you see it!  But, to give you some background info, a trough sink (pronounced like “off” with a “tr” at the beginning), is called such because it emulates a food trough that farmers and ranchers use to feed their animals.  It is long, with multiple faucets, and while it can be similar to a farmhouse sink, it is usually set into the counter-top and lacks the apron that characterizes it’s farmhouse counterpart.  We love trough sinks because they bring a fantastic rustic vibe to a space that no “normal” sink ever could.  They transport you directly back to the ranch, without ever having to leave your own bathroom!

Today we’re going to share some fantastic trough sinks.  Some of them are traditional troughs that fit seamlessly into their environments, and others are unique twists on troughs that add a big bang to their space.

 

This is the most common version of the trough sink.  See, I told you you’d recognize it!  It looks beautiful here set into the hand hewn wood vanity top, and the more finished mirror frame and sconces add a nice contrast of styles… very elegantly rustic!

This is a western bathroom from one of our projects located at the Steamboat ski-area.  Here, the trough sink completes the rustic barn feel with ease and style!

The stone trough sink on the chunk work bench vanity, along with the plumbing, backsplash, mirror, and textured walls make for an absolutely incredible space.  There are no words for this- it’s beautiful.

Here’s another fun and funky bathroom with an unusual twist on the trough sink.  It looks to me like a giant old dough-bowl.  All of the different components create a look that is rustic all the way!  What do you like about this bathroom?

This final trough sink was hand forged by a blacksmith.  It doesn’t get any more unique than that!  It fits in so beautifully with the also hand hewn beam vanity, and once again the contrasts here really add interest!

These sink posts have been one small example of how important the little details can be to the overall outcome in design.  Whether it’s rugs, hardware, plumbing, lighting, furniture or finishes, each element should be well thought out and carefully selected if you want your end result to be just perfect!

At Home on the Range, we are detail people.  While we know that the “big picture” is important, we also know that it is the tiny details that actually make up the big picture.  We try to focus on every tiny thing in the space, including fixtures, finishes, trim, flooring, furniture, fabric, leather, accessories, materials, etc, because we know that each one of these things contributes to the overall feel of the room, and if the details don’t work together, then the “big picture” is flawed.  Little things that seem insignificant, like sinks, light fixtures, and hardware, can make or break your space.  We love creating rustic, western, and mountain designs, and farmhouse and trough sinks are great additions to these themes.  Today I want to show you some great examples of some sinks that don’t detract from or neutralize their spaces, but instead contribute a huge style element that would otherwise be overlooked.

 

Just for fun, we’ll start out with the most traditional farmhouse sink.  The deep bucket with an apron across the front is what characterizes a farmhouse sink, though these days there are so many creative variations on the original!

Here’s a great example of a “creative variation” on a farmhouse sink.  You can still see the deep bucket and “front apron”, but I love how they used galvanized tubs instead of a single porcelain sink.  What a fun look!

This is a bathroom version of a traditional farmhouse sink.  They did a great job of incorporating the apron into the vanity, and the contrasting colors of the vanity, sink and mirror look beautiful together.

Here’s another unusual sink- I don’t know if it could really be called a farmhouse sink or not, but I’m still including it in this post because I love it and I think it has the same feel!  Again the use of galvanized metal transports you to a farm or ranch bathroom, and the rivets on the sides add a great visual element too!

Yesterday morning I took a delivery of antler furniture and accessories at a client’s house.  Since then, I haven’t been able to get antlers off of my mind.  I just love them!  I don’t know exactly what it is that I love so much, maybe how natural they look,  or how no two are the same, or how many different uses they have.  Or maybe all of that and more.  To add to my day’s antler obsession, Pinterest started doing this new thing, have you seen it?  It’s called “Explore Your Interests”, and when you click on it, it puts all of the most common things you look at and pin into neat little categories.  And can you guess what showed up first on my interest categories?  I bet you can.

It was antlers.

So, I spent about half an hour looking at every picture of antlers that Pinterest had to offer to me.

At the beginning of this post, I mentioned how versatile antlers can be when used in decor, and it’s really true!  Not only do they have billions of different practical uses (ranging from furniture, to lighting, to hardware, to purely and simply decorative), they also transcend different design styles.  You will see antlers used everywhere from western and rustic decor all the way to contemporary and modern design.  It’s like the buck of all trades.  Haha.

Another plus of using antlers that some people don’t always know (and we mentioned this in a previous post), is that they are naturally shed, so no animals need to be harmed when they’re collected (unless they’re attached to a skull… then things change).  Every year deer and elk drop their antlers and grow new ones, kindly leaving them on the ground for us to put in our houses.  At least that’s what I like to think.

I was so inspired (and obsessed) by all of the antler beauty that I found that I wanted to share it with you all today!  I mixed some of my favorite ideas and styles from around the web and threw in some of the pieces that we have recently put into our clients’ homes.

 

I think mixing antlers in on a photo wall is a great idea!  It adds depth and interest and helps to break any rectangular monotony that might occur.

Okay, an antler towel hook… how great is that?  We’ve seen and used small antler hooks and hardware in the past, but I love how they used the whole antler here- it makes for a piece that is functional AND aesthetic!

We used this adorable little antler stool for a client recently (actually it was one of the things I installed yesterday that made me antler-crazy).   It’s small and unobtrusive, and adds a great statement in a little package.

Okay, so I realize there are a LOT of antlers in this picture.  But I like it.  I like how they’re used all the way down the hall, it creates a neat visual effect when you look at it this way, and would also provide a linear look that complemented the beams when viewed from straight on.  Just make sure no tall clumsy people walk down this hallway!

Here’s another creative use for antlers!  We don’t normally use tie-backs on drapes, but I love this idea.  Again, it provides that natural woodsy look without overwhelming anything.  A little bit goes a long way!

You can’t really tell from the picture that this is a mirror, but it is!  It’s a beautiful mirror!  This is another piece that was delivered to us yesterday, and it looks fantastic.  We are putting it into a cabin near Lake Catamount here in Steamboat, where it is a perfect addition for our clients who love to hunt and fish.

Finally, here’s a beautiful picture of antlers just being antlers.  I love how they are interspersed with vintage mercury glass for a super unique tablescape.  There is just so much you can do with antlers to spice up your decor!

Trunks are wonderful.  Especially old trunks.  Not tree trunks (although we like those too), I’m talking about travel trunks.  In the past, people used to transport all of their belongings in trunks.  They were often very personal, and well traveled.  Like a person, each one had its own special story.

These days, people don’t travel with trunks anymore.  We prefer things with handles, wheels, and zippers that fit just perfectly into overhead compartments.  While trunks may have lost their significance in the travel world, they are increasing in popularity in the design world, and are far from obsolescent.  The use of old trunks (and new trunks, and new trunks that are made to look like old trunks) has been gaining momentum in interior design, thanks to the current re-purposing and upcycling trends.   Rather than holding a persons’ dearest possessions, you will now instead find them incorporated into furniture layouts.

We have seen trunks re-purposed into all sorts of things, mainly tables of one kind or another.

Old trunks make fantastic coffee tables, and you get an added bonus of extra storage as well!

If you can find a smaller trunk, or even a pair of them, you can have a great set of matching end tables.

We have also seen thinner trunks put on stands and used as entry tables and sideboards… which we love!

One of the most creative things that we’ve come across is a trunk-turned-bench or ottoman.  It really transforms the piece into something new and different!

We have quite a few different trunks in stock right now at the showroom- in all sorts of sizes, from all sorts of places, and with all sorts of stories!  Come in today to find one to incorporate into your very own unique story!

At Home on the Range, we are lucky to get to work on projects of all shapes and sizes, from massive second homes to one-bedroom condos.  Each space has its own personality, and each project takes on its own story.  But, though all of our projects are beautiful and unique in their own ways, they all have one thing in common: they’re stationary.

So we daydream.

I have always been captivated by travel, and by the freedom that comes along with it.  RVs and campers have embodied this freedom for decades, and the idea of creating a “home on wheels” just absolutely delights me!  It’s like that very same feeling of freedom spills over into the design aspects- you can do just about anything you want!  I love the thought of making something so small but perfect in every way.  I love the thought of embodying a feeling in a space, and my favorite renovated campers do just that: they pinpoint America, the West, travel, comfort, and craftsmanship, and then drive them home all in one tiny little box.

Our good friend Ralph Lauren (well, we don’t know him, but we love his home goods) is a camper renovation master.  My Airstream daydreams mostly feature his designs.  The detail in his rolling rooms is minute, and I honestly think I could probably live in one of these.

I love the woodwork here, and the mix and match fabrics.  It gives me the feeling of riding in an upscale version of a covered wagon on the Oregon Trail.

Who WOULDN’T want to take a fishing trip in this baby?  Again, every detail has been perfected, and a solid “Masculine Modern Lodge” style has been achieved beautifully.  See the snowshoes in the back?  Love those!  I also love the subtle colors in this camper.

This is a little picture, but you can see how wonderfully Western it is!  The use of reclaimed wood with bold reds and blues make this camper a cowboy’s paradise!

Here’s another cowboy camper.  My favorite thing here is the way they hung the curtains, but look at the other elements as well- they just work!

I love the idea of making the bed into a nook with the use of curtains.  Also, the fairy lights make this space magical!

In this renovated bus, they really made use of the light from all of the windows.  This space just feel so comfortable, clean and airy!  I would love to drive around the country in this!

My favorite thing about this camper is the barn door.  Just wanted to share that.

So this little camper is provably too heavy to actually drive anywhere, but it’s beautiful nonetheless!  Look at the stained glass, and the hardware on the door!  Such a neat little space!

Rustic Reading Nook | Home on the Range

This is the view from my window today.

It doesn’t show signs of stopping!  Kind of makes a person want to curl up in a warm place with a blanket, a good book, and a cup of hot tea, doesn’t it?  In a cozy little hideaway?  Full of pillows and cushions?

Rustic Reading Nook | Home on the Range

Yep, that would be perfect.

We have seen some pretty creative reading nooks in our time, but our very favorites seem to be of the rustic variety.  There’s just something about the mix of materials that make rustic nooks that much more cozy and inviting.

 

I’m pretty sure that I could actually spend the rest of the winter in one of these little utopias.  Couldn’t you?

More Christmas fun today!  We are just days away from our favorite holiday, and today we wanted to share something that we thought would bring a little smile to your day!  There are ALL SORTS of Christmas trees, and everyone seems to have their very own special methods and traditions for decorating them.  Some people use white lights, some used colored lights.  Some people use tinsel, and some use garland.  Some people use ladders, and some people use books.  Some people use tutus.

Wait, what?

Yes, that’s right, today we are going to be sharing some of the craziest and most over the top trees that we could find.  Tell us what you think!  Which one is your favorite?  Which one do you think is the most creative?  The most outrageous?  The most normal?  Share with us!
