We've been working on a "cabin" in Crested
Butte, Colorado. It is probably about 4000 square feet, not exactly a "cabin" ~ as I know it. It has
a large screened-in porch area, overlooking a fabulous view of a small lake at the top of the mountains. The home is in a
perfect place to get away from everything. Every window in the home has incredible views. My husband and I were invited
to stay at the home this past summer. It was a perfect place to escape the summer heat of Texas, especially during the
month of August.
I wrote the article,
"Fabric Applications 101," which was inspired from that project. It was probably the first project,
where we were actually asked to use all "outdoor" fabrics, throughout the interior. We were able to
successfully complete the inside of their home with about 90% indoor / outdoor fabric. The house was designed for High
Country Living. Wet ski equiptment, dirty hiking boots, fly- fishing gear, kayaking...you name it...hiking... and all the
outdoor activities which mountain life offers.
The interior selections ~ were all thought through, thoroughly!!! The number one objective was low maintenaince
and moisture friendly. The home owners wanted an "old time-y" feeling with all the conviences totally
up to date. I've posted a collection of photos on meiselsdesign.blogspot if you like to get a more intimate view of
the finished project.
