Come to the Lighter Side

Lighter and brighter is the name of the game when it comes to a modern ski lodge look. All the rustic charm remains — a textured stone mantel and hearth, wood plank ceiling and even furry lamps — but with a distinctly refreshed sensibility. Clean-lined, oversized seating pairs with sleek tables in this living space that's topped with an avant-garde chandelier.

Keep Up With Entertaining Essentials

Get the look and feel of a ski lodge while incorporating all your favorite modern amenities. After a day of hitting the slopes, curling up in front of a cozy fire and great movie is just the ticket. This reclaimed wall has a flush-mounted fireplace, flat-screen TV, hidden storage and an integrated wet bar.

Opt for More Pattern

After spending a day out in the cold, a warm, comfortable living space is a necessity. This eclectic sunroom pulls together a mix of cozy seating, including leather-strapped armchairs and a swinging daybed. To step out of the typical ski lodge style, pattern plays a big role in this house. Animal prints, graphics and faux furs bring a decidedly up-to-date aesthetic to the room.

Cue the Windows

No stuffy, dark design here. The combination of a cathedral ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows allows for truly stunning views of the Lake Tahoe region and plenty of natural light pouring into the contemporary living space. Low-profile leather sofas are positioned to take advantage of the heat off the texture-filled fireplace, which echoes the geometric area rug.
