Open Functional Kitchen

The kitchen is now opened up and reconfigured into an enlarged and more efficient galley-style layout.

Contemporary Rustic Living Room

The old, outdated living room with this updated, stylish living room. The couple wanted to blend the natural, rustic style of the cabin and a more modern feel. To make this a reality, they used natural materials such as the leather ottoman and pillows and the wicker storage baskets. They then added modern, open shelving next to the television. With the suede couch, the couple now has plenty of seating.

Small Modern Bathroom with Rustic Touches

As seen on Rocky Mountain Reno, the couple renovating this log cabin in Minturn, Colorado was interested in bringing both rustic and modern designs together to make the home of their dreams. The clean, white tile, grey stone vanity and grey patterned and mosaic tile, the modern style is greatly represented. To incorporate the rustic design, Trista used natural wood in places like the exposed beams in the ceiling and natural wood baseboards.

Sitting Area with Rocky Mountain View

With the walls separating the spaces gone, Trista had room to add a sitting area just off the dining room. This provides a comfortable place for the couple to lounge and take in the beauty of their Rocky Mountain view.

Combined Living and Dining Room for Larger Feel

The renovated downstairs made use of an open floor plan that now includes this combined dining area and living room with exposed wood beams, wood-burning stove and plenty of windows.

Converted Bedroom Nursery

As seen on Rocky Mountain Reno, an upstairs bedroom was converted into this nursery, a welcome addition since David and Rachel were expecting a new baby.

Island with Butcher Block Extension

This open concept kitchen leads straight through to the mudroom on the left and the living room on the right. The amenities in the space include new appliances and light fixtures, as well as a new countertop that is stain and scorch resistant. There is a butcher block extension to give the family more prep space when cooking dinner.

Natural Blue Tones in Kitchen

Trista's design plan took inspiration from the outdoor surroundings, deliberately bringing colors and themes of the natural surroundings indoors. A muted but rich blue was key in the color palette and reflective of the clear blue Colorado skies. As seen on HGTV's Rocky Mountain Reno.

Plenty of Seating in the Flex Room

This flex room is complete with lots of lush seating. The overstuffed couch easily seats three, while the chairs and ottoman add seating as well.

Rustic Sitting Area with Modern Lamp

As seen on Rocky Mountain Reno, the couple's new living room contains a seating area for them to enjoy. With two overstuffed leather chairs placed directly underneath a window, plenty of natural light enters the seating area. The natural elements of the space-the wood walls and table and the leather chairs-bring a rustic feel to the space, while the metal lamp helps incorporate the modern. Trista brings in the natural blue from the kitchen by adding a Roman shade on the window.
