Nestled in the heart of Golden, Colorado, the Genesee Mountain House stands as a testament to contemporary design harmoniously integrated with its natural surroundings. Designed by Ashleigh Weatherill Interior Design, this rejuvenated 1980’s mountain home embodies the essence of modern living while paying homage to the majestic landscape it resides in.
Contemporary Living in the Mountains
The living room, a confluence of comfort and style, sets the tone for the Genesee Mountain House. Plush blue sofas offer a welcoming contrast to the earthy tones of the custom-built wooden shelving that lines the walls. The careful positioning of windows and doors captures the light and frames the pine-studded vistas, ensuring that the beauty of the outdoors is always a glance away.
Transitioning to the kitchen, the heart of the home, the design maintains its contemporary aesthetic with sleek, dark countertops and light wooden cabinetry. Here, functionality meets sophistication; orb-like pendant lights cast a warm glow over the space, while state-of-the-art appliances promise culinary adventures.
Dining with a View
The dining room serves as a scenic spot for both feasts and intimate meals. A sturdy wooden table anchors the space, surrounded by elegantly upholstered chairs. The striking geometric light fixture overhead is a nod to the home’s modern ethos, and large windows ensure mealtime is accompanied by an ever-changing backdrop of the Colorado landscape.
Adjacent to the dining area lies a room that whispers relaxation. A white shag carpet cushions every step, while a classic Eames lounge chair beckons one to unwind. The high ceiling and large windows create an airy sanctuary, the perfect enclave for contemplation or conversation.
Step outside onto the terrace, and the home’s seamless transition from inside to out becomes palpable. A bold red umbrella pops against the tranquil hues of nature, offering shade above a modern outdoor lounge set. Here, the home’s design comes full circle, encapsulating the expansive views and the essence of Colorado’s grandeur.
The Genesee Mountain House, a complete reimagining of a 1980’s mountain home, stands as a beacon of contemporary design. It is a space where the outdoors is not just viewed but experienced, a harmonious blend of design and nature that captures the imagination and inspires a lifestyle in tune with the environment.
