Sun Valley Architecture and Interiors
Sun Valley has always been a place where folks could relax and recharge. Early explorers camping out in what is now the town of Ketchum noted that ". . . the place was promising, the weather fine and the grass good, so that our worn out horses both fed and rested."
Over the last century, the beautiful Idaho landscape became infused with movie stars and millionaires, ushering in a whole new level of "roughing it in comfort." Sun Valley residents take great pride in ensuring their personal space is as unique and beautiful as the surroundings; faddish ways do not exist here. No matter where a Sun Valley resident spends time-big screen, office building, or at the nearest fishing stream-their homes exude a blend of elegance, contentment, and unique Western charm. From timeless rustic designs to ultra-modern interiors, Sun Valley Architecture and Interiors explores some of the homes that exemplify the Sun Valley lifestyle-living in luxurious comfort.
Devoted to the variety of architecture and design of the Western Teton region, Sun Valley Architecture and Interiors is filled with stunning photographs of homes that capture the unique charm of this Idaho gem. From contemporary homes highlighted with wrought-iron and shiny glass to ancient fishing cottages still standing beyond all expectations, all the homes have an accessible common-sense elegance and each one exudes personality.
Also included:
The fascinating history of Sun Valley
Vintage photos, posters, maps, and other memorabilia
A look at the popularity of recreation in the area and how it influences the style
