Merry Christmas from the Snow Queen Ranch

Hello friends! How was your Christmas? I hope you were able to enjoy yourself even though the holidays are quite a bit different this year. We decided to spend time at the Snow Queen, enjoying some peace and quiet with our four dogs. It’s a different world out at the ranch, it’s near Telluride, but the vibe is so different from the ski resort. Instead of skiing, we are busy painting the house, refinishing furniture, plowing snow and tending to the yard. It’s a simple and very fun life out here. Christmas was low key and very enjoyable.

It was quite the challenge getting our four Powder Hounds to pose for a holiday photo.

It’s been a fun challenge to decorate our Telluride Ski House and The Ranch. They are both quite different from one another. Here at the Snow Queen the aesthetic is Shabby Chic, whereas in Telluride the feel is Swiss/Mountain Modern chalet. For the holidays I kept the unique design themes in both homes.

Sweet Pippin is our new rescue and she is quite the silly girl.

I hope you enjoy these photos of our holiday decorations and silly pups!

I’ve never had a white Christmas tree before, but I’m happy we took the plunge. I think it goes really well with this house!
