7 Design Finds to Elevate Your Mountain Home

It’s that time of year when temperatures drop and we look for warmth and inspiration indoors, at least until the ski slopes open. That means crackling fireplaces, cozy nooks and lots of soft, textured layers.

Here are seven of our favorite design finds to inspire your mountain home design this winter. You can see and touch all of these pieces in person at our interior design retail store and showroom, Stel House + Home, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.


No. 1: Moscow Mule Mugs. You want the fire hot, and your cocktails chill. Keep your favorite 5 o’clock delight nice and cold in these mugs made of stainless steel with a copper finish and brass handle. Each mug measures 3” round and 4” tall. Get yours at Stel House + Home for $16.99.

No. 2 & No. 3: Snoopy Chair without Arms (2) and with Arms (3). Cocktail in hand? Check. Now sit back and relax while sipping on your favorite mule. Constructed of hardwood and furniture grade laminate, these headturners can be customized from a selection of fabric and leather samples, but the alpaca fur options shown retail for $7,500 (2) and $8,850 (3). Stop by the Stel House + Home furniture showroom in Steamboat to see all the options.
