Crescendo's 2016 Transformation

Crescendo – The King of the Mountain:  even more comely.

(part 4, our new Interior, continued)

              Our Dining Room/Great Room –

Crescendo Dining Room Festivities



All of Crescendo’s rooms have expansive windows, and all of those windows sport our new roller shades.  The shades provide a considerable amount of solar protection, while preserving Crescendo’s incredible mountain views.  The views of the Monashee Mountains from the Dining Room and from the Great Room, of course, are breathtaking (an understatement, truly).

Great Room Makeover


By design, every room at Crescendo offers its own unique experience, but the Great Room has always been Crescendo’s focal point.  Well deserved, then, is the complete makeover that room has received.  The extraordinary amount of natural light that streams through the Great Room’s 30’ floor-to-ceiling glass causes just about everything in that room to come to life:  our new color palette, inclusive.

With that new color palette in place, we replaced all of that room’s furnishings:
- two beautiful Italian leather tufted couches, and two stylish chairs;
- three new contemporary lamps (in addition to the custom lighting introduced last winter);
- four new end tables;
- dazzling red carpet;
- new artwork, new throw pillows, and more.

The total package serves to underscore Crescendo’s already established reputation as being the mountain’s most sophisticated and most modern home.  More importantly, though, our Great Room is exceptionally inviting, and we believe it will be your first choice for entertaining your friends, for sharing time with your family, and for relaxing with a book in view of the fireplace.

              Interior:  Our Master Ensuite –

Master Bedroom

Starting from the top (literally), the Master Suite has been totally transformed with a very rich grass/copper foil wallpaper.  To fully appreciate the wallpaper’s rich detail, we also added to the lighting in that room.  That lighting helps, too, when standing in front of the Master Suite’s new full length mirror.  Crescendo’s Master Suite has always been sweet, and a separate retreat all to itself.  Even more so now, though, since we also added a full-sized couch and chaise.  Combined, the Master Suite’s transformation further emphasizes what we had always hoped to create therein:  that sensation of Ahhhhhhhh …


Guest Bedroom

Our Guest Bedrooms –

When showing off our Guest Bedrooms to new guests, we get a kick out of their awe-struck expressions and from their audible gasps.  Yes, simply stated, the wallpaper in those rooms, entitled, “Corrosion,” is stunning.


                                 Our Pool Room –

The Pool Room, exterior

All of the Pool Room’s windows have been coated with energy saving film, protecting that room especially from the sun’s intensity as it ricochets off the snow.  A serendipitous perc surfaced, too, by the film’s mirrored finish to the Pool Room’s exterior.  Seeing the mountain’s natural beauty reflected across Crescendo’s exterior, for us, was truly an “OMG” experience.

Another example of action driven by guest feedback, is the addition of four height-adjustable stools placed inside the Pool.  While seated, you and your friends can now relax in the Pool/Jacuzzi with your favorite beverage in hand.  The suggestion that brought about our Pool’s stools, though, had little to do with one’s bottom and more to do with one’s top:  specifically, hair.  Preferring their hair to stay dry, some of our guests prefer to brave the weather in lieu of entering/exiting the Jacuzzi from the comfort of our toasty Pool Room (26 C, 78 F).  Imagine that!   Regardless, the stools facilitate an outdoor entry/exit by providing that needed boost.  

Those who want to enjoy your company near the Jacuzzi, but not in the Jacuzzi, will appreciate the outdoor seating we added to that area.  We think the seating will be especially appreciated by our guests joining us during Big White’s new summer season.

Our Great Room … What an unbelieveable change!  Instead of ... (next post)

Crescendo's 2016 Color Scheme


We hear you, and we take action.  

No, we’re not like one’s teenager.  We actually listen to our guests.  Better yet, we take action.  We’re very interested to know what might make your stay at Crescendo even that much more enjoyable, so we not only actively solicit feedback from you, but we actually implement your requests and/or make the changes you suggest.  How great is that?


Changes/Upgrades/Additions:  Interior

Although our original color scheme was attractive, we agreed with a guest who suggested that Crescendo might be due for a makeover.  Voila!  Our new color palette is at the same time both bold and sophisticated.  

Speaking of “bold,” wait till you see our new Great Room carpet!  Oh, tongue hold still.  Don’t let the cat out of the bag just yet.  

We believe our new colors serve to enhance Crescendo’s rather dramatic architecture, while providing a cozy cocoon of comfort for the beleaguered snow-sporter or mountain biker/hiker.  This new color palette, however, necessitated new furniture and new accessories, and those, too, had to be consistent with our contemporary style and with our bent toward integrating both form and function.

As you can see …  Oops, not so fast.  Crescendo’s new furnishings will be revealed in a later post.
