    I'm want to build this room as an addition to my home in Delaware. What kind of wood was utilized? Where can I read more about this beautiful home

    I'm glad you think it is beautiful. I am the designer that had the privilege of working on this wonderful project. This home is on Lion Mountain in Montana. It has gorgeous views so we wanted to make sure you could see them at every turn. If you go to my link http://www.houzz.com/pro/khunter1562/karlene-hunter-baum-allied-asid you can see more photos of this home under the title Lion Mountain. I did another project in Montana with similiar flair, it is titled Eagles Rest. The floors are walnut, the trim is cherry and the ceilings are cedar on both projects. The stone is found only in Montana. I have another client in another region of the United States that wanted this look as well. We were not able to locate stone like this in their area or the entire eastern half of the U.S. so they ended up having their stone mason make a trip out to Montana to select this stone for their project. The hearth is one big slab so we needed the mason to hand pick what would work appropriately for their space. The mantel is wood wrapped in metal that was treated to look like aged copper. With the wonderful vaulted ceiling we wanted a dramatically sized chandelier for the space. We could not find a ready made one so we had this one and the others in the space custom made. I was able to design and size them for the project. I also supplied the furnishings, custom hand knotted wool rugs and lamps for the room. The client wanted warm "mountain contemporary" which we accomplished with the warm tones and a wonderful play in texture with all the elements in the room. I would be happy to assist you in your project as well as I know this look inside and out. You would not need to re-invent the wheel so to speak. I have successfully completed projects around the United States. Let me know how I can help further. Happy Holidays! Karlene Hunter Baum.
