Inside Emily Henderson's Mountain Home
Emily Henderson’s mountain home required a complete renovation to become the serene, light-filled family retreat it is today.
Beloved designer Emily Henderson’s escape in the mountains features soaring A-frame windows and tranquil nature views.

The family room underwent one of the largest transformations and is now one of the most-used spaces in the home. The fireplace in the corner of the room was relocated, a staircase was removed (a redesign of the room above made it no longer necessary), and large scenic doors were installed for easy access to the outside.
“The scenic door from our family room to the back deck makes the house feel 10 times bigger (and our kids can’t stop getting a kick out of the fact that they are both inside and outside at the same time),” Henderson said.
In the previous layout of the home, no master bedroom existed. Henderson got smart about the floor plan, borrowing space from one of four family living areas to create a brand new master suite with windows where there once were none.
“Our master bedroom is up high and had really pretty forest views, but no windows to let us enjoy it.” Henderson said. “The function and layout of the room changed once the windows were installed because they became the focus; we oriented the room to face them.”
The downstairs guest room provides easy access to the outdoors with custom swinging French doors that let light stream in through large glass panels. Light-blocking shades, copious greenery and a relaxing private bathroom complete this calming oasis for guests.
