Elk Ridge Lodge
Elk Ridge Lodge
Centre Sky Architecture Ltd
Designed as a prominent display of Architecture, Elk Ridge Lodge stands firmly upon a ridge high atop the Spanish Peaks Club in Big Sky, Montana. Designed around a number of principles; sense of presence, quality of detail, and durability, the monumental home serves as a Montana Legacy home for the family. Throughout the design process, the height of the home to its relationship on the ridge it sits, was recognized the as one of the design challenges. Techniques such as terracing roof lines, stretching horizontal stone patios out and strategically placed landscaping; all were used to help tuck the mass into its setting. Earthy colored and rustic exterior materials were chosen to offer a western lodge like architectural aesthetic. Dry stack parkitecture stone bases that gradually decrease in scale as they rise up portray a firm foundation for the home to sit on. Historic wood planking with sanded chink joints, horizontal siding with exposed vertical studs on the exterior, and metal accents comprise the remainder of the structures skin. Wood timbers, outriggers and cedar logs work together to create diversity and focal points throughout the exterior elevations. Windows and doors were discussed in depth about type, species and texture and ultimately all wood, wire brushed cedar windows were the final selection to enhance the "elegant ranch" feel. A number of exterior decks and patios increase the connectivity of the interior to the exterior and take full advantage of the views that virtually surround this home. Upon entering the home you are encased by massive stone piers and angled cedar columns on either side that support an overhead rail bridge spanning the width of the great room, all framing the spectacular view to the Spanish Peaks Mountain Range in the distance. The layout of the home is an open concept with the Kitchen, Great Room, Den, and key circulation paths, as well as certain elements of the upper level open to the spaces below. The kitchen was designed to serve as an extension of the great room, constantly connecting users of both spaces, while the Dining room is still adjacent, it was preferred as a more dedicated space for more formal family meals. There are numerous detailed elements throughout the interior of the home such as the "rail" bridge ornamented with heavy peened black steel, wire brushed wood to match the windows and doors, and cannon ball newel post caps. Crossing the bridge offers a unique perspective of the Great Room with the massive cedar log columns, the truss work overhead bound by steel straps, and the large windows facing towards the Spanish Peaks. As you experience the spaces you will recognize massive timbers crowning the ceilings with wood planking or plaster between, Roman groin vaults, massive stones and fireboxes creating distinct center pieces for certain rooms, and clerestory windows that aid with natural lighting and create exciting movement throughout the space with light and shadow.

Even though hallways are primarily pathways between rooms, they can be so much more if designed well. Despite being a rather small space, the range of hallway decorating ideas is surprisingly big; adding built-in bookcases or shelves to display books or interesting knickknacks is just the tip of the iceberg. Browse plenty of pictures of hallways for inspiration and read the following tips to make sure yours is flawless and functional:

How do I add storage to my hallway design?

If you have a small home, adding hallway storage solutions is a great way to save much-needed space. When executing your hallway ideas make sure to avoid narrowing an already narrow space. Instead, think about how you can take advantage of the vertical surface of the walls. Stay away from full-sized furniture and try to incorporate built-in bookcases and skinny console tables into your hallway design ideas. Also, consider adding narrow shelves on the wall, just make sure they don't cut into your walking space since that is the hallway’s prime functionality!


Another more involved hallway storage idea is to actually open up the walls to tap into unused space between the studs. This is a great way to add small nooks and shelving that don’t actually take up any precious space, but are perfect for showcasing hallway decor. You’ll want to hire a professional to make sure there isn’t any plumbing or electrical running through the spots you want to open; if there is, and you absolutely need that extra space, you can always pay to have it moved or rerouted.

How do I incorporate hallway decor?

Your hallway decor should not overwhelm such a small space, but instead enhance it and complement the home’s interior. If you want to display a photo collection, grouping frames in odd numbers and varying the heights is one of the best hallway decorating ideas you can easily implement. You can use shadow boxes and art shelves to display quirky small accessories in your hallway design, but try to rotate them out occasionally to keep in fresh and interesting. Wall space is key, but don't forget about your ceilings and floors as well. Ceiling lights, chandeliers or wall sconces can act as additional decor, while runner rugs are a quick, easy way to add color and pattern to a traditionally all-neutral space.


Put in extra thought when choosing a paint color for the walls. Lots of hallway ideas will feature light colors, which will keep the space feeling open and bright, especially if it’s lacking natural light. Don’t let that stop you from using dark or bright colors though, as these can have an equally impactful presence. If you are planning to use deep hues, consider using contrasting hallway decorating ideas, like white picture frames and bright artwork. Also, keep in mind what color the doors in the hallway are — if they clash with the paint color you should paint them to coordinate, or consider going with a different wall color altogether.
