The Ridge at Cintarosa was designed to be a private retreat for the luxury resort clientele.
"Through the interiors, we wanted to make home owners and potential clients feel that they have arrived and that they never wanted to leave," says Mary D. Miranda, a principal with HRi Design.
The territorial ranch architecture has hand-hewn beams and trusses, natural stone, rustic wood plank and antique terra-cotta stone floors. Custom-forged iron pendants, warm leathers and antique reproduction furnishings are complimented with the textures and palette of the surrounding landscape.
"They wanted us to create a contemporary version of the rustic ranch," says Miranda, "and combine a sense of elegance with a very timeless quality of what one would expect when one come to a western retreat like this."
