Interior designer Kathy Geissler, Best of Kathy Best Design, is thrilled to have her elegant Alpine-style ski escape featured on the cover of esteemed lifestyle publication Gentry Home Magazine. The stunning three-story home, built by award-winning architects at John Malick & Associates, is a true mountain masterpiece and one of Kathy’s most prized projects. Kathy created the elegant abode for a family of five after her longtime clients said that they were ready to build a ski house inspired by the Tyrolean style winter homes they had seen while abroad in Austria.

Utilizing traditional materials such as stone, stucco, shingles, well-crafted woodwork, and copper-clad windows, the elegant ski abode’s intricate exterior detailing clearly reflects its Austrian aesthetic. The photographs that grace Gentry’s glossy pages display the designer’s ability to balance antique Tyrolean-inspired elements with modern accents. The article delves into Kathy’s masterfully crafted design details, such as how she custom designed a one-of-a-kind floral leitmotif to use throughout the home. With its bespoke details and Old-World appeal, the designer is proud to showcase a family ski home tailored to perfection.
