"Mountain modern"  homes are starting to become the new trend in these high top, mountain retreats.  This style of design allows for the cozy, intimate feel of the mountains without the dark and heavy, claustrophobic textures.    The mountain modern home has more of a connection to the natural surroundings, an open airy feel, and lighter textures.  Peers Homestead in Spanish Peaks Mountain Club in Big Sky, Montana is a perfect example of  "mountain modern" at it's finest.

Exteriors are the icing on the cake.  I spend most of my time shooting the interior of a house, but some of my favorite images are the exteriors.  Living in Montana we have no shortage of amazing views.  Architects spend a lot of time and thoughtfulness in designing home to make the most of the views while also considering the layout of the land and the owners needs - not a small feat.
