Designing for the Western Lifestyle: Mountain Lodge
Mountain Lodge style can range from a European ski lodge to a rustic cabin. Mountain Lodge evokes the scent of pine trees and the warmth of a cozy fire. Mountain Lodge décor brings the outdoors into the home with the use of color and materials found in the environment around the house. When designing with any of the Western Design styles, it is important to stay away from what is trendy and focus on timeless design elements.
In this bathroom by Home on the Range, we painted the cabinets and walls with a pine green. Birch bark mirrors and pinecone accent tiles bring the feeling of the outdoors into the room. Naturally shed antler handles were used to accent the doors and drawers of the vanity.
The custom twig light valance on the bookshelves, the use of reclaimed oak floors and the rawhide chandeliers from Hammerton Lighting add rustic mountain touches to this European lodge home.
Chinked timber walls and a random-lay stone floor are used to create a mountain cabin feel in this lakeside home. The antler wall sconces from Sua designs add another touch of the mountain lodge feel to the entry, and the feathers in the vase complete the look.
You can use any of the accent ideas highlighted in this blog to add a touch of mountain lodge to your home.
