2010 Summit County Parade of Homes Award

Karen Wray of Mountain Log Homes & Interiors was honored with second place in Interior Decorating and Furnishings in the $1million to $1.49million category. A Panel of judges consisting of an Interior Designer from Denver, and General Contractors from Grand County and Aspen made up this year’s panel of judges. Karen was pleased to be honored by the Parade of Home, but even more happy about her clients response to the home. When Leawood, KS second-homeowner Lynn Dahl arrived on September 11 to see the completed home for the first time, she called Karen with tears of joy and was so overwhelmed she could hardly speak. This was the best reward Karen could hope for.

Karen worked closely with Lynn to create the Bear Creek Cabin as a cozy mountain retreat. They met in person once per month since April to order tile, flooring, furnishings and accessories, and Karen sent photos and texts in-between as she found special pieces that seemed to be just right for the home for Lynn’s approval. “Although the home is a comfortable 3,600 square feet, we created intimate cozy spaces for reading, enjoying the views, and gathering the family together for conversation and meals. All of the spaces stayed true to our original color pallet and Mountain Lodge design” says Karen. “When we started planning for our Breckenridge home, the thought of choosing all the finishes and furnishing an entire home prior to even walking through it was overwhelming to me. Karen came to my rescue! She was involved in our entire interior design process from start to finish. Her creative ideas couple with her sensitivity to my needs was a perfect partnership leading to our absolute joy with our completed home” Lynn said.

You can see this Breckenridge Home Sept 25 & 26, 2010 in the final weekend of the Parade of Homes, or by appointment with Mountain Log Homes staff following the Parade. Watch the Mountain Log Homes web site for photos after October 1, 2010. Lynn hopes to keep the final furnishings and finishes a surprise for her 3 children flying in to their new family retreat and doesn’t want to leak the photos early.
