The holiday season is behind us and most of us are trying to shake off the festivities and rush as we get back to work. But for those still looking to hang onto those last few remnants of festive bliss we have a gorgeous vacation home among the majestic peaks and wild landscape of Montana and it seems to perfectly capture the holiday spirit!

But it is much more than the color scheme that catches your eye here with hickory quartz countertops and raw metal adding textural contrast and beauty to the polished interior. Moroccan-inspired tiles in the bathroom and a partition in the living area bring pattern while a cool sliding barn door makes a bold visual statement in the bedroom.
A stone wall in the living room acts as a charming accent addition that veers away from the coastal style of the home while understated décor and a muted color scheme create a smart alchemy between contemporary finesse and beach-inspired hues.
