A Mini Mountain Chateau
This three-bedroom Vail Valley town house makes the most of its 1,560 square feet.
Where: East Vail Racquet Club
WHAT: Three-bedroom town house
THE MAKEOVER: A young, Denver-based family with daughters aged 6 and 4 purchased this town house overlooking Gore Creek from its original owner. The family wanted the dark, aged space to be lightened up and given a traditional ski chalet feel.
THE MOVES: Interior designer Courtney St. John sourced traditional wood furniture, as well as timeless materials from Ralph Lauren, Clarence House and Kravet for a fresh update that still feels old-world château. Showcase Mountain Homes created custom cabinetry throughout for maximum storage space.
The girls’ room combines the practical, the pretty and the pink—Ikea storage, RH beds, Serena & Lily wallpaper, and Manuel Canovas fabric on the Roman shades and cornice board. The Flokati rug adds a grounding softness that even the family hound can appreciate.
Antler sconces from RH and a vintage oil landscape from Chairish bring a bit of Western flavor and a sense of place to the guest bedroom. The headboard fabric is ClassicCloth, and the Roman shade is Ivory Swiss Dot from Gretchen Bellinger.
