Eskuche Design Group was responsible for this incredible home with a mountain modern aesthetic, located on Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota. The goal of this project was to combine the open feel of a desert home with the coziness of a mountain lodge, infused with a modern twist. This project was met with design constraints, which included a narrow lot on the street side and restrictions from severe bluff setbacks on the lake side. With clever design ideas, the project team was able to mitigate all design constraints to create a stunning home with a harmonious layout and maximized views. Above: The siding is Hardie Artisan series (no corner boards) which is painted Sherwin Williams SW 7027 Well-Bread Brown.

Martha O’Hara Interiors was responsible for the exquisite interior design and furnishing selections throughout the interiors. Their goal was to create a rustic contemporary, dog-friendly residence that brings the outside in through a thoughtful floor plan layout that caters to entertaining. Not only did the interior spaces need to relate to the outdoors, the designers were challenged with combining the homeowners’ two distinct design styles to create a sophisticated design scheme with durable furnishings.
