Elegant Understated Style for Western Homes
As many homeowners embrace the design concept of “mountain modern,” interior designers are also coming up with ways to re-imagine Western homes. Featured in the Winter/Spring 2011 issue of Western Art & Architecture, interior designer David Michael Miller has perfected an elegant understated style that casts a whole new light on the home.
As demonstrated in his Scottsdale, Ariz., remodel, Miller’s interior aesthetic is inspired by both art and architecture. The contemporary white walls and simple forms of the desert home are a canvas for a blend of eclectic furnishings, a pleasing balance of rustic and refined.
To get this timeless look, Miller suggests:
- Resisting the trends of the day.
- Trust your instincts when making design decisions.
- Use colors that make you feel good.
- Go for versatile, tailored furnishings.
- Incorporate natural, authentic materials.
