Along a four-mile stretch of river and outdoor natural beauty, sits an unmatched private mountain community. Victory Ranch is a special place. Be it winter, spring, summer or fall, this private community is set amid 6,700 pristine acres of hiking and skiing landscape.
It didn’t take any convincing for the international interior design team from Barclay Butera Interiors Park City to take on two of the luxurious mountain cabins that call Victory Ranch home. The iconic designs Butera is known for matched perfectly with the vision of a developer from Chicago, who has been involved with numerous residential projects. In fact, his father is an interior designer, so the team knew they would have a lot to live up to.
This was not a renovation project—the two model homes, Cottonwood and Willow, are new builds, allowing the design team to bring fresh, modern ideas to the unique cabins. “What made the project special to us was the team effort involved, along with the open-mindedness of the owners. We were able to be creative and original, and it stood out in the community,” according to the Park City design team.
The goal of the design team was to introduce a new aesthetic to the Park City buyer, giving a unique modern twist on the classic mountain cabin. “The golf-course and backcountry setting allowed us to focus on the beautifully organic material selections, and complete the look with simplified yet luxurious interiors.”
For the Cottonwood Cabin, the team opted for a monotone color story with textural elements. “The furnishings we selected not only had clean lines and cooler-toned upholstery, but also were meant to have a casual nature,” says the design team, however for the Willow Cabin, a warmer aesthetic was chosen, “we still wanted to keep a new/fresh look.” The overall feel of the cabin might be contemporary, but the features have still have contrast and include rustic details.
The design process began with inspiration boards and images for every aspect. “We looked not only in the direction of architectural details, but also towards inspiration from fashion, nature, and lifestyle. Implementing our look began by choosing material selections based on the setting of the cabin,” the team says.
But the team didn’t just look inward for inspiration. The impeccable views of the resorts, the Provo River and the Jordanelle Reservoir influenced their choices of organic elements. “Furnishings, art, and other details were selected along with the developer, who has an impeccable eye. It was a real team effort,” admits the design team.
The modern design of the warm and cozy cabins was received with accolades from the Victory Ranch community when revealed at a local realtor event.
Some of the team’s favorite details include the cantilevered powder vanity and the matte plaster details around the fireplace in the Cottonwood home. And the fireplace façade and the beautiful herringbone floor in the master bath really stood out in the Willow model.
According to the Barclay Butera Interiors Park City design team, the Cottonwood and Willow model homes are just the beginning of their exploration of luxurious modern mountain designs at Victory Ranch.
“We are excited to have an ongoing relationship with Victory Ranch and the developers. They understand that good design comes from a holistic approach.”
