When you walk into the model my team and I designed for Victory Ranch, it’s easy to forget that you’re in the open wilderness of the rural Utah back country —and that’s just the idea. I wanted to create a chic yet casual atmosphere by utilizing materials common in mountain homes while also introducing very modern and industrial elements. The soaring glass windows and beautiful beams of local reclaimed wood are the bones of the sanctuary while the metal collar ties, concrete counter tops and steel strap detailing on the fireplace set the tone for a more urban ambiance. With uninterrupted scenic outlooks from every room I maintained the warmth of the space by layering a variety of textures and roughhewn finds; including hair-on-hide benches, distressed leather lounge chairs, fur throws and horned accessories. By combining these elements with a muted color palette and low profile seating, the seamless marriage of traditional and contemporary continues resulting in a unique and inspiring setting perfect for taking in all the natural beauty that abounds.
