We live part time in Mammoth Lakes, California, high in the Sierra mountains.
In the winter there is world class snow skiing and in the summer, breath taking
hiking, mountain biking, golf and fishing.
Gather color inspiration for your home from your surroundings.
As my husband and I hiked around, Convict Lake, one of the many lakes in the area,
inspiration for mountain interiors was all around us.
Benjamin Moore “Snow on the Mountain” #1513
“Look at that snow. Some white or light grey wash on beams
and ceilings would lighten up dark interiors.”
Benjamin Moore “White Dove”
Benjamin Moore “Imperial Gray” #1571
“Imperial Gray (has some green that warms it)
on the walls in a bathroom with Whale Gray stone flooring?”
Benjamin Moore Silver Song #1557
“Kitchen cabinets in Silver Song and an accent wall in Springfield Sage?”
“Pink and white linens in a guest room?”
“Night Mist” #1569
“‘Night Mist’ on the walls in a bedroom and ‘Greyhound’ on bathroom cabinetry
with ‘Deep River’ colored stone counters?”
Another hike (Mosquito Flats elevation 10,300 ft.)…
Look at the sapphire blue of the lake. I could see this color on velvet pillows
on a oatmeal colored washed linen sofa. This pillow is from Jayson Home and Garden.
With my friend, Sue
The driftwood pieces are natural sculptures…
appropriate for mountain interiors.
It is impossible not to be happy when you are hiking and enjoying the fresh air
(and thinking of your next decorating project).
Can you bring your surroundings inside?
