Modern Cottage Style: Park City, Utah

One of our favorite places to visit is Park City- not only for its scenic beauty, charming Main Street, and relaxed atmosphere, but also for its innovative architecture. In Old Town, you'll find these incredible resort-style ski homes that are part cottage and part modern, often with a bit of lodge influence mixed in. The smaller lots dictate modest facades, which means the details really count; The focus is on beautiful front doors, garage doors, and fixtures, as well as materials that will withstand all that snow during winter (think rockery, metal roofing, concrete, and steel). These are a few homes (and garages) that caught our eye... some vintage, some new, each with its own distinct personality. We couldn't resist also capturing a few images from Old Town. Enjoy!


  1. Hello!
    I did a Google search for a blue garage and found your blog. :D I am building a dollhouse garage and was looking for inspiration. I LOVE the third photo you shared here! It has inspired me to change my little garage from red to BLUE!
    You have a great blog! I'm off to read more.
    Thank you!!!
