A guest house adjacent to a Western ski resort home reveals modern cabin decor in a warm, woodsy setting. The house is oriented around a three-sided stone fireplace that makes for a natural gathering spot.

Plywood and planed wood beams create the backdrop for the clean-lined contemporary furniture, some of which was designed by the home's architect. The sofas' cobalt blue is echoed in the pool table and provides a jolt of color in the great room.
