dream cabin

A respectful renovation balances historical preservation and contemporary design. 

A historic log cabin, reimagined for a preservation-minded couple. Working with the architect, we thoughtfully swapped extraneous wood for panoramic windows and steel I-beams. The resulting interior feels simultaneously seamless and sophisticated, open and intimate. Layers of texture lend intrigue throughout: rustic timber walls complement the client’s contemporary art collection; plush upholstery softens such as a copious cobalt sectional soften minimalist lines of metal; cozy nooks, like one bridging the living room and master suite, invite relaxation. The master transforms the historic core of the cabin into a refuge defined by logs darkened to near black. Catering to keen chefs, we designed a gourmet kitchen as functional as it is flawless; opting out of a dining room in favor of a larger family area, the expansive kitchen island seats six. Every careful detail reflects the synergy we felt with this client and their respect for both history and design.

contemporary refuge

Tonal texture and a precise palette make this study in Scandinavian sophistication sing. Designed as a guest retreat for longtime clients, every exquisite detail underscores the harmonious aesthetic: for instance, the creamy, diaphanous drapes lining the kitchen, dining and living room feature flecks of red, making the understated fixture enlivening up close. Once dark with dated woodwork and heavy textiles, the ranch house now feels transformed into a peaceful, contemporary refuge. By applying a syncopated program of warm whites and grays paired with oak and walnut paneling, the home feels cohesive. Custom oak cabinetry and a sleek quartz countertops make the kitchen feel both calming and culinarily conducive. Meanwhile pops of color—expressed in accent textiles and original artwork—distinguish the bedrooms. Even the sculptural chandelier hanging above the custom pool table makes for an unexpectedly artistic moment out of entertainment.

alpine haven

A mountain retreat for an urban family of five, centered on coming together over games in the great room. Every detail speaks to the parents’ parallel priorities—sophistication and function—a twofold mission epitomized by the living area, where a cashmere sectional—perfect for piling atop as a family—folds around two coffee tables with hidden storage drawers. An ambiance of commodious camaraderie pervades the panoramic space. Upstairs, bedrooms serve as serene enclaves, with mountain views complemented by statement lighting like Owen Mortensen’s mesmerizing tumbleweed chandelier. No matter the moment, the residence remains rooted in the family’s intimate rhythms.
