#036 Mountain Modern Inspiration

Updated: Aug 18, 2020

Every once in a while, we here at modFORM like to share what is inspiring us. Today's inspiration blog post is a collection of homes that fit with in the Mountain Modern design aesthetic.

What is Mountain Modern? Mountain Modern is a style typically found in mountainous regions that blends modern styling with a more rustic lodge feel. In this styling we find lower pitched roofs whether shed or gable, exposed large wood beams and columns and sometimes a stone base. Sometimes steel and extensive glass is thrown into the mix. Without further ado, here is our list:
