A mountain retreat is an endless theme – this is where every designer shows what he or she can do and every owner asks what he or she likes, although the most popular decor is modern with rustic touches. This luxurious chalet with modern decor is called Lower Foxtail Residence and was designed by Reid Smith Architects. Its exterior, defined by the use of stone, wood, and glass, manages to somewhat hide the design tidbits inside. The social area is filled with natural light and emphasizes the high-end design features. The overall dark color palette creates an elegant feel and draws attention to the natural pleasure outdoors. A strikingly modern style and a lot of comfort are the best ideas for such a residence.
