Michael Stokes’ family home is situated in some of the most beautiful nature you will ever set your eyes on. Step outside and you are dwarfed by a perfect snow-capped mountain (can’t miss photograph below) and a grove of old-growth pines swaying in the winter breeze. Nature, it seems, has even permeated his walls and crept into every nook and designed cranny of the home. From the bear-fur bedspread, to the weathered wood floors, to the stone and even steel, with the unmistakable patina of nature + time written all over them.
We had the opportunity to have a conversation with Michael and his hearth designer, Eric Walden recently. You could call this entire home a collaboration of designers, a passion project, or simply, an act of nature.
