Blending Modern and Rustic Designs

As seen on HGTV's Rocky Mountain Reno, Trists' design has expertly combined the natural aspect of the cabin with the modern aspects that the couple desires. In the living room, the rustic design is brought to life with the wood wall, exposed wood beams, the original wood burning stove for extra warmth and decor such as the antlers on the wall and the wood candlestick holder. She brings the modern into the design with the window treatments and the rug. The natural blue color on the wall and the curtains adds a pop of color to the space.

Modern Bathroom with Updated Fixtures

Before, this bathroom was an outdated, disorganized mess. Now, the design has been modernized with a whitewashed wall, a decorative mirror and sink and updated light fixtures. A large tub adorns the back wall, and the wood wall behind it adds a rustic aspect to the otherwise modern space.

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.

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.

Flex Room Off Living Room

Once all the reconfiguring was done, the downstairs had ample space to include this multipurpose flex room adjacent to the living room and entryway.

Dining Room with Modern Touches

The dining room in this space embraces the cabin's modern roots. With the exposed beams in the ceiling, the natural wood table and the plaid dining chairs, the space is very cabin-esque. However, Trista adds some modern accents, such as the chandelier and the artwork on the walls, to incorporate some of the modern touches that the family like so much.

Open Functional Kitchen

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

Modern Stairs in Entryway

With the original front entryway restored, a portion of wall and old wood bannisters were removed and the stairs were given this modern, open treatment to help unify the downstairs spaces.

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.

Rustic Touches in Modern Bedroom

As seen on HGTV's Rocky Mountain Reno, this bedroom, once covered in wood, dark and outdated, is now a bright, beautiful place for the couple to relax. A large window with neutral window treatments let in plenty of natural light, while the light color of the walls and ceiling help to reflect that light and keep the space feeling lights and open. Trista continues her design into the bedroom with the bold, blue bedspread and accent pillow. She added a modern touch with a metal chandelier hanging from the ceiling, but kept the rustic design alive with the exposed beam in the ceiling and the natural wood door to the right.
