Rustic Retreat

Even though our ski condo renovation is almost entirely finished, I still find myself combing the web for inspiration… This Aspen getaway designed by Cheryl Tague, completely stole my heart.  Despite all the rustic design trappings of wood paneling, fur throws and antlers, this charming home still manages to retain such a light and airy feeling.

  13. I love the whitewashed wood and the addition of linen and whites in the wood spaces – it keeps it fresh and avoids being too dark and log-cabinish. šŸ™‚

  14. WHAT a coincidence. I too am redoing a ski cabin (in my head) and these are just the kinds of inspirational images I need!

    Very nice indeed. We live about 10 minutes away from Sundance Ski Resort (Robert Redford's) and every year we stay in one of the winter retreat homes up there. These images reminded me of the one I like the most. Love that kitchen.
