m. elle

mmmmmmmm ... m. elle. It's easy to see why this mother and daughters design team (Mary Lynn Turner and Marie and Emily Turner) made Elle Decor's 5 to watch list. Sophisticated interiors throughout their portfolio but it was this mountain home that had me from the first picture. Understated elegance yes but also casual and inviting. Cocooned in dark rooms with blazing fires and layered textures. Enticed by the bright and white. It's a stone and aged wooden beam dream with conifer clad hills thrown in for free. Retreat is definitely the right word. What a wonderful interpretation to match a stunning site. So much more after the jump.

Well they've designed my PERFECT house. I am so in love with that breakfast nook. All the cushy furniture, the dual vanities, the baskets. Oh I'm seriously in love.

Before today, if you told me I would fall in love with a house done in grey, I would have told you no way, go fly a kite, I'm not on that trend train and that's that. But, I LOVE this house and all the grey in it!
Another prejudice turned on it's ear.

Hello dream kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, everything. I love the whole house is warm and earthy. Very Colorado. I also see a green ski slop in back means this place close to the slopes...I want to go to there even more!

Absolutely stunning. I love that the entire house looks and feels warm and welcoming. Nothing to precious here and that's perfect when you have kids (as I do). The windows and doors alone make me pee my pants! lol GREAT post! xoxo

This is officially my dream home, great inspiration!

I can't wait to see the rest of their portfolio...if only it was working. Their website seems to be running extremely slow-maybe this beautiful post of yours caused too many of your readers to want more and they're overwhelming the m. elle site. I'll have to try tomorrow.

This is my absolute favourite post yet!! My dream home!!
