Mountain Living – September 2022
Moving From Traditional to Mountain Transitional
Update your home without undertaking a full remodel
When your home feels stuck in another decade and the thought of a full remodel sounds too overwhelming, updating the furnishings is the perfect solution. The architecture of most mountain homes features timeless design elements from natural wood beams and stone fireplaces.
The original construction was meant to bring the outside in and reflect the surrounding landscape. With the demand to remodel being so high, more often than not, contractors can be booked months to even a year out. This is where simple updates such as a fresh coat of paint, furniture, textiles, art and lighting can bring an aging home back to life.
Paint brightens and lightens a space
Keep the wood trim and stone fireplace, but freshen up the walls with a hue of white paint. This will make the natural elements pop and add contrast to the space. Some of our go-to whites are Sherwin Williams Pure White, Alabaster, and Drift of Mist (for more of a greige tone). We recommend blue-taping several options to your walls and observing them during different times of the day to narrow down your decision.
