What we love

Top left: Wood columns define spaces within one large open area. The columns are aligned with the ceiling detail and create a hallway to divide the living and dining spaces without blocking the views.

Bottom left: The natural stone and wood details combined with the soft fabrics create a cozy master en suite that could be mistaken for an Aspen lodge, except for the view of the May River.

An off-center wood beam mantle adds character and charm.
