A remodel gives new life to A home in Big Sky, Montana’s Yellowstone Club
They say the kitchen is the heart of a home. So when a family from the East Coast decided to update and renovate their house in Big Sky, Montana’s Yellowstone Club, they chose that very room to focus on. The home — dubbed Southern Sky — was originally designed in 2006 in a heavier, darker mountain style, and the family was ready for a lighter, fresher look. “We wanted to modernize the living areas, particularly the kitchen where we spend a great deal of time,” the husband says, explaining that they often gather there to cook and drink wine around the island.
For the remodel, the family asked around for recommendations, seeking a team who could bring their vision to life. They chose to work with Brianna Farland, senior design partner at the Bozeman, Montana-based ICON Interiors. As the lead interior designer, she met with the “amazing, fun-loving, vibrant family” to learn about their style preferences. She knew this slope-side gem, with incredible views of the ski runs and the main lodge, could be brightened and modernized while retaining a distinctive mountain aesthetic. “They really wanted a place they felt comfortable coming home to,” Farland says.
