Chic Mountain Decor

We’ve been in Jackson Hole now almost a week having a great time relaxing and enjoying the outdoors – I even saw a bear with her two cubs while out on a hike (from afar), it was beautiful yet quite scary to see all at once.

We’ve visited with friends and attended a few parties as well while here and I have been able to see some fantastic examples of chic mountain décor.  I know there are some die-hard mountain traditionalist who revel in heavy wood, rustic animal motifs and dark fabrics while designing a mountain home but there is something about adding in lighter more contemporary touches that really can boost a mountain home to the next level.

Here are some of my favorite examples of chic mountain décor.

I love these bedrooms, even though it gets pretty warm during the day its great to find a cozy place to read or sleep:

These spaces would be ideal for hosting a dinner party or to have a relaxing family dinner:

How great would it be to relax in this tub after a long day of hiking, ideally this tub would come with a fantastic view of the mountains:

Hope everyone is having a great week!!

Heading out to Jackson Hole!

We leave tomorrow for Jackson Hole for a couple of weeks.  Although known as a winter ski haven visiting in the summer months are my favorite and its a great escape from the Dallas heat!  I’m looking forward to long bike rides, hiking, yoga, the farmers market in town and just being outdoors and enjoying all the fresh air – along with fun family parties and dinners out:)

The mountains have a calming effect and the architecture often reflects this through the prevalent organic designs and landscapes in the homes here.  We are staying in a beautiful Jonathan Foote designed home minutes away from the Snake River and on its own little tributary with stunning views of the Tetons.  Jonathan Foote is well-known for designing homes that “walk softly on the land”, his designs are not only innovative but typically require old world craftmanship and are always environmentally sensitive.  Below are some of the gorgeous homes he has created throughout the years.  You can read more about Jonathan Foote here:
