This stunning cabin in Telluride mountain village, Colorado has been designed by architecture studio TruLinea Architects in conjunction with interior design firm Studio Frank. The owners of the cabin wanted a home that was rough, organic and timeless. The home’s original existence was a nearly derelict cabin, one of the first houses built in the area. The 3,871 square foot home with five bedrooms and five bathrooms was in need of a major overhaul.
Incorporating high-tech steel contrasting with low-tech logs into the design would solve a variety of design problems; leaving it exposed offered a fresh point of view. Most of the rooms on the main level were demolished and the upper floor with its new roofline offered unobstructed views of the San Sophia mountain range. Unified with wood, steel and ceramic tile, the rooms create a backdrop for the refined—mixed with fun—furnishings and fittings. The designer wished to have a contrast with the hard-edged architecture by infusing soft, handcrafted elements into the design.
A chandelier of vintage wood and wire cages custom designed by Studio Frank, supports this home’s old-fashioned-with-an-updated-twist design theme.
Smooth-to-the-touch linen upholsters a Montauk sofa while rugs throughout are vegetable-dyed Moroccan vintage pieces from the 1930s. The coffee tables are rugged, reclaimed wood from India with lots of hidden storage. Aluminum-clad Aviator chairs from Restoration Hardware add a unique touch to this space.
Viking appliances blend with metal cabinetry and contrast the custom designed island in this rustic kitchen.
In the dining room, a light fixture from Obsolete hangs over a metal topped dining table that is surrounded by leather-clad Gunnison chairs by Hickory.
Halcyon stone, concrete and wood cabinetry work together in this bathroom.
