ASHTON TAYLOR INTERIORS
Perched atop Big Sky Mountain in Montana, this vacation chalet was designed to be everything but cliché. Ashton Taylor Interiors used the clients love of art and their sculptures and paintings to direct the design path of a boasting contemporary interior with subtle nods to nature.
The first item selected for the project was a 400lb bronze mountain goat sculpture, by Tim Shinabarger, that was craned straight from a local gallery into the home. Its positioning is meant to continue the landscape from the exterior to the interior.
The home needed to be luxurious enough to host its significant neighbours but durable enough to handle grandchildren, wet jackets, and the bulk of ski attire. With these requirements Ashton decide to incorporate a cool furniture palette of alpaca wools, chrome and lacquered finishes in juxtaposition with the deep textured wall plaster and wooden trim detailing.
In the master Ashton Taylor Interiors designed a soft haven with a full Silk rug and furniture that reads sculpturally itself. The smooth modern headboard is wrapped with a simple cow patterned hide and the table lamps bring in warm metals and suede. This chalet was meant to be shared, so the designers included bunk rooms whenever possible to host the maximum number of guests for this couple’s winter retreat.
Suggestive and artful, Ashton Taylor Interiors ensured that this magnificent ski chalet was designed for the senses.
