In Refined Mountain Style, the woods tend to be more finished than in other more rustic styles. We often use cherry or alder for the doors and trim, and the beams are surfaced rather than left in the rough sawn or “crusty” state.
The furniture we incorporate into Refined Mountain Style is a little more European in feel, and the cabinetry is often a blend of natural woods with furniture-style painted and distressed pieces.
As in all of our interiors, we will mix in touches of cowboy and lodge with Asian furniture pieces and European antiques to keep it interesting and eclectic.
Things like white painted distressed cabinetry keeps rooms looking light, and fresh fir ceilings, reclaimed fir beams and alder trim bring back in the natural materials that are so important to the Western Design style.
