A Fun and Hip Ski Retreat in Tahoe, designed by .
A bachelor client, for whom we have worked with on two urban residential projects, hired us to create a fun and hip ski retreat in Tahoe.
A floor-to-ceiling cold-rolled steel fireplace, highlighted by artist “Pixel Deer”, dominates the principal room. Floor-to-ceiling stacked wood adjacent to the fireplace becomes a design element and hides the entertainment center. The seating area consists of a large leather sectional and a pair of 1960s swivel chairs by Thonet purchased by the client in Miami. Photography by and a mixed-media collage on a wood door created by Tim Weldon add a touch of whimsy. The dining area has a 7-foot recycled wood square table surrounded by classic armchairs, able to accommodate up to 16 guests.
The powder room features a live-edge floating shelf, a mirror Designed by Jacques Adnet and custom Union Square wallpaper by . The corridor leading to the bedrooms showcases 19th century albumen photographs of the Tahoe region.
Each of five bedrooms was given its own personality: the burlap bedroom; the log bedroom; the gray bedroom; the antler bedroom; and the master, with a circular metal hanging chair overlooking the unobstructed view of the mountains. A large vintage “hotel” neon sign in the master bathroom adds nostalgia to the space.
The perfect mountain retreat: a casual and inviting house to welcome the owner’s many guests.
