Vacation homes aren’t always a gorgeous completely custom space that you can deck out yourself, but for mother and daughter design team of M. Elle in California, it just so happens that was the case. For their family’s vacation space in Idaho, there was many a cabin inspiration from Provence, France to multiple other European adventures.
The end result of this beautifully layered home is an interesting space that feels so old world and lived in, even though it is new construction. A recycled barn was used to create parts of the structure, and the home’s ‘great’ spaces are certainly encouraged by a heaping of upcycled parts and pieces.
Mixed wood tones, stone, rustic lighting and wooded built ins are all a part of the meticulous project. Burlap looking pendants and other unique elements all keep to a very California-French chic design aesthetic while still making the space look old, worn and yet full of new life.
