This beautifully designed mountain lodge home in the state of Montana is owned by Tommy and Julie Frist. Their designer, Markham Roberts, took a classic approach with a minimalist attitude to create a very calming yet beautiful family room. The exposed beams, stone fireplace with beam mantle and candle-style chandelier all invoke the peace you’ll find in the country overlooking the majestic forested mountainside. A romantic blend of deep red and white add a beautiful hint of cottage romance.

Get The Look:

If this style suits your fancy, then you will love being able to recreate a similar look for under $6000. These pieces will give you a monochromatic look, but it’s easy to add red (or another accent color of your choice) by choosing the correct accessories.

The Furniture

Add soft texture with the blend of leather, soft velvet, and faux stone. Ground your room with a contemporary coffee table that brings together the white and gray furniture.
