Design Boards – Rustic Modern Family Room

In the next segment in our series “Design Boards” we introduce you to a spectacular home in Telluride, Colorado.

Custom home featuring distressed wood floors from Carlisle Wide Plank Floors.








This home, built by Michael Bradley of Refined Custom Homes, and photographed by Merritt Design Photo of Denver features a sophisticated combination of modern and rustic decor.  From its vintage distressed wood floors to its ecclectic styling throughout, you will love the ambiance of the home.

Step inside for an up close, and personal look, at all the stylish details and our finds for our “Design Boards”.

As with most of the custom homes we have reviewed so far, finding an exact replica of the products has not been easy.  This is very common because when it comes to custom homes, the upholstery, furniture, and other interior details are custom made to meet the clients exact needs. 

This family room has a perfect balance of modern and rustic styling. 

Let's start with the furniture.  The dark brown leather couch has a rich color, and iron nail detailing on the arms and front of the couch.

Restoration Hardware has a terrific replica for this look with its 10' Collins Couch.

The room also features matching mission style armchairs.  Hard to see from this photo so let me show it to you from a different angle.







The fabric on the chair is actually a soft plush-like fabric – hard to find even in custom choices available. 

Ethan Allan has a classy Wagner Chair that creates a similar look, although the side detail is completely different, with the Ethan Allen chair being open, and the original chair have a “plank” like apperance with dovetail detailing.

Ethan Allen also offers you the option to customize the upholstery.

Between the armchairs is a unique accent table.  It looks like an old wine or whiskey barrel but it has a piece of wood as the table top that was cut from an entire log.

This has been nearly impossible to replicate, but we did find a tasteful replacement from the Pottery Barn.

The metal drum accent table will still lend a vintage charm.

Another unique piece of furnture in this home is the coffee table, crafted from, what appears to be, two solid pine beams.   We found a gorgeous option from Uhuru Design in Brooklyn, New York.

The wood floors in this home make a statement all their own.  They almost seem to weave together the rustic modern charm that is being created. 

The dark wood flooring – crafted from Walnut hardwood flooring – gives the room a luxurious feel, and complements the fireplace mantle, furniture, window and door trim. 

The floor features a Watermill Surface, giving it a distressed wood flooring style which softens the formal appearance of the room. 

The accent pillows were a challenge in and of themselves.  Who knew something so small could be so hard to find – impossible in fact.  Probably another example of custom upholstery – an easy solution when it comes to throw pillow.

But we thought these Embroidered Silk Pillow covers were a nice alternative.
