Dream Home: A Modern Mountain Retreat in Sun Valley

We’ve been dreaming of getting out of the house and escaping into nature. Last week we couldn’t get our favorite lake-side home out of our mind, this week it’s this mountain retreat. Located in beautiful Sun Valley, ID, this modern mountain home features floor to ceiling windows, white oak wood, and layers of warm linens. You’ll want to cozy up and enjoy the incredible views.

Warm White Oak Details

White oak is used throughout the mountain home. It adds organic warmth while still feeling light and airy. We love it paired with crisp white walls and marble kitchen countertops. If your home features dark wood, consider adding light wood styling accents throughout. The contrast in wood tones is beautiful.


Floor to Ceiling Black Windows

Our favorite feature of the home are the floor to ceiling windows. The black windows frame the beautiful mountain views and maximize the natural light. They also emphasize the angles of the vaulted ceiling in a cool way.

Woven Textures

Woven textures of the rugs, accent furniture, and lighting add depth to the neutral palette. This has been a huge trend in the last year and one that works with many different looks.


Pops of Color

Set against the neutral tones throughout the house, colorful works of art pop. Art adds beauty and sophistication to any space. Even on a budget, you can find great art. Try a high quality print from Minted, or buy vintage on Etsy.


Ceramic Lighting

The offset mirror in this bathroom is balanced by the hanging terra cotta pendant light. Such a pretty and unexpected detail that keeps things interesting in the minimalist space. Ceramic lighting has been another big trend this year. We wrote about it here.


Layers of Linens

Piles of pillows and soft blankets throughout out the home invite cozying up. Belgian linen sheets have become a favorite of ours. They are soft, breathable, and add a rich lived in vibe to your room.
