Modern Log Home

Aspen, Colorado
United States

The owner of this home in Aspen, CO, desired modern flair on the traditional log cabin look. This required contrasts throughout, pairing warm and cool tones, and the integration of lighting in unexpected ways. Backlighting and recessed lights provide consistent ambient light and a sense of comfort while transitioning from one space to another.

The Great Room incorporates truss uplights with amber sleeves keeping them hidden to provide a soft warm glow in the space. In contract, blue LED light emanating from the cove provides balance to both the Great Room within and the hidden perimeter railing on the deck.

The powder room uses an unexpected arrangement of wall sconces to provide visual interest. Hidden lighting beneath the bench emphasizes the overall warmth of the space. A variety of methods in the bathroom lend consistent illumination for occupants preparing for the day or readying themselves for a night out.
