Traverse Mountain Modern Entry, Office & Living

Design Tips | July 9, 2018

Our latest project is one that we’ve been very excited to share! Our clients are young, super hip and have a modern aesthetic.  It was fun to push ourselves past our normal comfort zones and design such a modern home. We wanted it to feel classic and sophisticated but still fun and fresh. For this new build we worked with Murdock Builders.  They were incredible to work with!


In the entryway we didn’t have a lot of space so kept it simple with statement art and a mid-century inspired leather bench.

Right off the entry is the husband’s office. He loves things that feel modern and masculine so we went all dark in here! It was a challenge to balance the dark elements and not make it feel cave-like.  We added pops of white accessories and lighter chairs to give the room some space to breathe.

Our clients were set on glass stairs. We custom designed this installation to include metal posts and glass walls instead of railings.

The Living Room is the heartbeat of this home.  It has souring ceiling heights and incredible views of Utah Valley.  We wanted everything in here to feel airy so the natural light could bounce off the walls and fill the room. The shelves are simple but still make a statement.  The acrylic lamp, chair and glass coffee table let your eye wander around the room.
