Mountain living never looked so good. At the 2021 Park City Showcase of Homes, designers and builders put their best work on display. Each home offered a different taste of traditional alpine style met with contemporary flair, showcasing fresh design solutions that push boundaries. Here are five fresh trends you won’t want to miss:
Playing the Angles
Designers are ditching one-dimensional style in favor of sloped ceilings and inverted windows. Striking lines provide a bold border for alpine views while making already sizable rooms appear more spacious.
Drawing inspiration from their wooded surroundings, several homes incorporated natural materials and textures in their designs. In a powder room, a distinct vanity brings the outdoors in. In a Midway home’s kitchen, custom stonework meets a neutral wood ceiling to deliver a warm cabin feel.
Gone are the days of recessed lights and plain drop pendants. The designers of today are in favor of bold fixtures that make a statement in every corner of the home. Take this office chandelier, where an ocean-like fixture adds luminescence to the otherwise moody decor.
Mix and Match
Pairing textures and patterns in a harmonious duo is no cake walk—designers at the Park City showcase showed us how it’s done. From living rooms and breakfast nooks, layering varied materials and furnishings, adds visual interest to contemporary interiors.
Take in the View
Appreciating the mountain vistas is no problem when faced with wall-to-wall windows. These homes couple gathering spaces with wide-open views.
