As an architectural photographer I find myself in some amazing homes. From cozy, mountain cabins to large, modern homes I have seen it all. The great room is one of my favorite rooms in the house. This is the room that sets the mood of the entire home, a place where we love to entertain or relax after a long day. I have decided to put together a collection of my favorite great rooms from 2016.
1. Bright, open, & airy is how I describe this beautiful great room designed by Michelle Varda from Varda Interiors. I am obsessed with the furnishings, they brighten up the room perfectly! Builder - Big Sky Build 2. This cozy cabin was originally designed to mimic the iconic lodges of Yellowstone National Park. The stonework and cabin architecture makes this an incredible cozy space to lounge after a day on the Yellowstone Club ski hill. 3. This amazing Reid Smith Architects designed home is located on a bluff in Spanish Peaks Mountain Club. The burned wood wall, the windows, and the birch bark wallpaper put this great room as one of my absolute favorites!! 4. The vaulted ceilings, large open windows, and teal furnishings are what make me love this great room. Teal is also my favorite color! Architect - Locati Architects, Interior Design - Kelly Hohla Interiors 5. The medievil style windows is what draws me to this amazing great room. I love the soft, contemporary furnishings to brighten up the space. 6. This cozy great room is sitting on the edge of the ski hill at Yellowstone Club. The pops of color really make the room come alive. Architect - Locati Architects 7. You cannot beat the amazing views from this Reid Smith Architects Designed home in Moonlight Basin. I also love the furnishings by Carole Sisson Design. 8. I love all the furnishings in this Yellowstone Club home great room, but what really stands out is the custom coffee table. Gorgeous! Interior Design - Varda Interiors 9. Classic, elegance! I love how the great room flows easily into the formal dining room. Interior Design - Ilten Design 10. This room is AMAZING!! The walls of glass over looking the Spanish Peaks is incredible! What really draws my eye is the gorgeous light fixture over the dining table.
