Space under a staircase is often a missed design opportunity. Here, interior designer Linda Woodrum recaptured the space for use as a room just for Fido. The Dutch door allows the pet to stay inside its area when guests come over, yet still be able to see or hear the action.

Floating stairs — chunks of oiled Douglas fir without risers — look modern and allow light to flow between them.

Interior designer Linda Woodrum repeated a square motif throughout the house to create a cohesive look. Here, the shape is featured both in the geometric squares featured on the powder room walls and in the artwork just outside.

A mix of rustic, traditional and modern, the powder room makes a bold statement, starting with the sage-green walls and stained wood blocks applied in a grid pattern. A porthole-style mirror, antiqued brass vessel sink and hammered metal pendants add texture and shine.

"As you walk by, it has wonderful dimension and interest," interior designer Linda Woodrum says of the powder room. "It's a room that's used a lot, and it's important to have something interesting there. "

A series of bold transfer prints by artist Annie Hooker featuring Truckee, Calif. landmarks and curiosities picks up on the blues and greens featured in the mudroom area.

Wood and metal — common mountain home materials — are given a modern twist as two contrasting wall treatments. The bamboo flooring featured throughout the house lines the stairwell wall, while a corrugated metal installation accents the foyer.

Welted steel supports, stainless steel mesh and an oiled wood railing extend the modern look up the stairs.

Contemporary furniture and gold-tinged accessories create an inviting alcove at the top of stairs.
