We’re headed to the mountains mid-december to spend the holidays and new year. So much progress has been made on Tad’s family home – it’s really at that perfect intersection of charm that can’t be purchased, and modern updates that can.
There are a few big things on the list – like curtains, a few rugs, and some lighting – that need to be planned and measured for. the lord really opened the thrift store for the majority of our house scores, but these last bits need some decorator decisions, and I’m scrambling to get at least a few done we can enjoy this season.
Coincidently enough, last trip out, as we were lounging at the Aspen airport waiting to depart, eating the best dang quesadilla I’ve had in a long time (it’s worth getting there a little early – plan some time for a burrito picnic at their charming tiny terminal), I was thumbing through the latest Architectural Digest and struck inspiration gold.
This Lake Tahoe home, as my friend Jeff would say, Can. Get. It. It’s the perfect modern mountain mix – retaining 100% of the character of a log cabin, with updates that nod to the natural, finds that actually look found, and layers of luxe that prove the design was thoughtful. I’ve permanently bookmarked the feature, with Tad totally on board, and we’re making mountain moves to bring some of this cool AF cabin vibes to our rustic retreat this winter.
ps this dude founded instagram, and Ken Fulk designed the house. I founded Furbish, and I’ve started at least 4 experimental instagram accounts, my Pinterest page is robust and, well. Basically, same.
