Modern Meets Mountain in North Carolina


If you’re looking to run from the Florida heat, this family built the ideal place to do it. Come along as we explore this modern mountain home.


When this family of five flees their full-time home during steamy Florida summers, they are ready for some relaxed mountain time. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, their vacation home is all about gathering time for a family that includes three teenagers. Interior designer Pam McKay created spaces for entertaining and kicking back, using materials and preserving views that connect the interiors to the spectacular surroundings. More important, there are plenty of comfy spots where the family members can visit, read, nap, watch TV, have friends for sleepovers — and telecommute too.
