The Adirondack Mountain region of New York is a visually stunning landscape of mountain peaks, vast forests, lakes and waterfalls, and soaring blue skies. It’s no wonder the area attracts so many tourists to its millions of acres of natural beauty. Many aspects of the Adirondacks translate well into interior design.
Natural, organic materials form the basis for design inspired by a wild place like the Adirondacks. You don’t have to live in a post and beam home to borrow the beauty of the look for your own rooms. No ceiling beams in your home? They can be installed and either stained or painted by a professional decorative artist to match existing wood or look like any type of wood you might prefer.
Wooden beams don’t need to be confined to the ceiling. Reclaimed wood beams make furniture that is rustic, beautiful, and green. A nice complement to this look is an accessory reminiscent of old tin roof or barn tiles.
The extensive forests of the Adirondacks can also provide inspiration. Luxurious wall coverings evoking wood patterns or leaves as well as paintings or prints can easily reflect the botanical influence of the Adirondacks.
