Modern Mountain Home

How to Create a Modern Mountain Home

I recently discovered the web-site of Studio McGee, a full service design firm based in Salt Lake City. Not only do they have stunning images of their design portfolio, but they also have a gorgeous selection of home decor that can be purchased through their online store. It has inspired me to create a series on several of their projects to share.

About Studio McGee

Studio McGee was created in a spare bedroom with lots of big ideas and no room for fabric samples. After many late nights of brainstorming and collaboration, husband and wife team, Syd and Shea McGee decided to take what was a small business for a stay-at-home mom and turn it into something much more.

After graduating with a degree in Public Relations, Shea realized that what she really wanted to do was design. A few semesters into design school, her bright and clean aesthetic had attracted a waiting list of clients and no idea how to handle the workload.

Meanwhile, Syd had worked for six years to build a start-up digital marketing firm that was acquired and left him searching for a new start-up to dive into. He soon realized there was the perfect candidate right in front of him.

Syd and Shea McGee launched their design firm in 2014 and it has quickly grown to become one of the most well-known design studios in the nation. With a team of 30 and clients across the country, their work has been featured by Architectural Digest, Domino, Vogue Living, and House Beautiful to name a few.

Promontory Project

This beautiful stone fireplace is perfect for a modern mountain home. A dramatic look is created by taking the stones all the way to the ceiling. The stones were hand selected to control the range of color used and to provide a warm and homey feel. The Bernhardt Bangor Petrified Wood Side Table adds an additional touch of rustic to the space.

The entrance-way uses tile to define the space that mirror the colors and style found in the stone fireplace in the living area. The flooring had to be durable in this modern mountain home to receive wet boots and skis. The statement console, Gannet Table Lamps, Shaka Traysbaskets and Blackwell Mirror create interest.

Board & Batten Powder Room

Subtle board and batten are used on the walls in the powder room. The custom concrete vanity with light wood base lightens up the dark walls. The basket is the perfect additional for extra storage.

Modern Mountain Kitchen

This modern mountain kitchen has white waterfall edged counter-tops, natural wood barstools and dark cabinets in Benjamin Moore’s Cheating Heart. The white pendants help brighten the space.

Modern Mountain Bedroom

The master bedroom incorporates a dark-on-dark concept to create a deep and dramatic effect. Blue grasscloth wallpaper was paired with dark gray nightstands. The Frankfurt Articulating Sconces provide contrast to the statement chandelier. Additional items in this room include Holden Pillows, Restoration Hardware Alpaca Pom-Pom Bed Throw & 19th Century French Iron Canopy Bed, Schumacher Harshaw Pinstripe Sisal and Pierce Hand-Knotted Glacier Area Rug.
