Bring in natural materials:  

Whether you prefer the appeal of large timber log cabins or you  lean more toward modern detailed mountainous homes, natural materials are always at the forefront of the interior design. Wood walls, floors, and artisan furniture can be brought into your home to recreate the look of a ski-lodge or rustic cabin. Large boulders or stones are popular for fireplaces, walls, and accent areas that demand a commanding presence. Expansive glass in many cabins lets the homeowner take advantage of gorgeous mountain vistas and this same look can be achieved in your home. If you live in extreme temperature climates, ensure double paned and energy- efficient glass is used.
