Big Views and Fancy Fixtures at a Preserve Estate

Have I mentioned how lovely fall in Park City is? The air–if it can be so–is crisper. The light is warm and rosy and lays sideways in the afternoons. The leaves are golden across the valley. And let’s just say evening open house event attendance is quite high because who wouldn’t want to drink in as many moments of this as you possibly could:

What a dump.

Tonight’s reveal was a newly constructed five bedroom, 7 bath, approximately 6,879 square foot home in a community called The Preserve, up behind Kimball Junction. Generally 10 acre lots, the definition of “big mountain views.” Wide open spaces and wildlife abounds.

Not actually a Lexus commercial.

One cool thing I’m seeing is a move away from the stark grays, whites and chromes of Mountain Modern and a shift towards Baroque Modern, with more golds, more taupes, more rounded shapes and embellishments. No curlicues or embellishments here but the warmer, brassy colors are a welcome addition.

I love this ceiling fan, I think I take a picture of it every time I see one.

But this one, this one is lovely as well. Reminds me of Saturn. Mid-mod planetary? Look I’m sure there’s a design classification here but I don’t know what it’s called.

Another trend I see frequently is one random powder room with dramatic everything. I wasn’t disappointed in this house, with disco-ball tiles and a cast-iron looking sink.

One thing I haven’t seen yet is this awesome tile. It’s a stone (origins unknown, I’ll update as I find out), cut into cylinders and shaved off at an angle, the way that bamboo or sometimes even barrel staves can look. This was a bar backsplash with floating shelves.

Very interesting movements in design here you guys. Lots of veneer cabinets in a whitewashed walnut color. More golds. More globe lights and…disco ball tiles.

Wait.

Isn’t there a cycle in home decor design, just like fashion but every 40 years or so?

I CANNOT WAIT FOR MY CONVERSATION PIT YOU GUYS
