A Home for the Holidays: Memorial Weekend 2011

Ceasarstone looks wonderful on the countertops.

Although quite bare, The Great Room is still very inviting and ready for holiday guests.

Missing  In Action. Dining table and chairs can't stop the celebration.

Homeowner is in Heaven. She is so amazed at the outstanding view.

Breakfast will be served on Sunday.

  The  invitation to a modern family lodge in the mountains can  be very welcoming.  With the upcoming Memorial day holiday,My client really wanted to give her delightful family a preview of their extended family retreat in the beautiful high mountain country in Northern California. Although not complete. The modern family lodge was ready to move in at least for the holiday weekend. Earlier the upholstered pieces were in the warehouse in Portland, Oregon. The dining chairs have been slightly delayed.the dining table is being refinished. The beautiful Donghia chair will be socially late for this weekend of family fun.  The king size box spring was not ordered. The pale grey canvas Roman shades go up in the bedrooms next week.  The Indonesian bench found its way in the hall  near the door of the bunk house. The whimsical pony hide stools are sitting at the desk in the library.The pendleton blankets(modern solid wool ) carefully rest on the the other beds awaiting the guests that will be arriving shortly for a good old fashion back yard barbecue. What a back yard! filled with teak outdoor furniture.
      Here are a few photos of the Great room. It will be exciting to see it come together even more. It is just the right amount of a subtle hint to the lodge yet it it modern, the architecture, the furniture, the outdoors are in a quiet harmonious symphony.

Family heirloom area rug finds a new home in the Lodge.
 Soon, the cheerful chatter and laughter will fill this space as another  guest arrives this weekend. The jobsite became a lodge. This lodge is becoming a home.

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend where ever you may spend it with your family.
