Out West Week: A Montana Lodge by Paul Bertelli and Markham Roberts
Reclaimed wood and native stone join forces to dramatic effect in a lodge by architect Paul Bertelli and decorator Markham Roberts.
I am smitten with this Big Sky, Montana home for the Frist family of Nashville. The details are divine as is the story of how the home was created leaving no detail unfinished.
A Remains Lighting chandelier hangs in the living area. Displayed above the fireplace is a photograph by Roberts from James Sansum Fine and Decorative Art; the George Smith sofas are covered in a Pierre Frey wool, and the carpet is a Roberts design for Doris Leslie Blau.
A rough-hewn timber ceiling crowns the room.
A seating area contains several Roberts designs, among them a sofa in an Old World Weavers fabric from Stark, faux-horn side tables, and a set of chairs in a Jasper stripe; Yuji Obata prints hang above the mantel, and the abaca carpet is by Stark.
A trestle table and benches anchor the dining space.
The Frists’ bedroom features a pendant light by Vaughan and a 1940s French writing table and chair from James Sansum Fine and Decorative Art; the bed linens are by Pratesi, the throw is faux chinchilla, and the carpet is by Thomas Jayne for Stark.
A lantern by BoBo Intriguing Objects was installed in the master bath; the tub, its fittings, and the towel bars are all by Waterworks, and the towels are by Pratesi.
A guest room features headboards and bed skirts in a John Robshaw print and a Stark jute carpet.
The bunk room is partially sheathed in reclaimed corral boards.
