The words “mountain home” still conjure up images of dark paneling and ornate antler décor; but, while this 10,000-square-foot home in Bachelor Gulch, Colorado, is certainly a mountain home, it is nothing like the ones that have come before it. The distinction was drawn the very first day interior designer Eddy Doumas met the would-be homeowner for the first time. “She strode onto the construction site wearing Chanel boots, and it was obvious she had an amazing sense of style and fashion,” he says. “We knew we had to do something totally fun and unexpected.” Inspired by his client, he injected a feminine whimsy into the traditional log architecture by TAB Associates. Shades of rose, fuchsia, tangerine and tomato liven up the interiors and make the view inside as extraordinary as the one of the majestic mountains outside the panoramic windows.
