It all began with a piece of art. The homeowners handed interior designer Carter Kay and her team this painting of a fly fisherman, saying “OK, this is what we want.” Fishing is a favorite activity of those who visit the ranch, and the Madison River Valley has some of the best fly fishing in the world.
“We got all of our khakis and greens and blues from this painting,” Kay says. It now hangs in one of the bedrooms over a console table with iron legs, vintage gears and a beautiful reclaimed-wood top customized by a local craftsman. “We didn’t want to ‘brown them out’ by using too much brown and khaki,” Kay says. The blue on the gear in the center was a happy coincidence.
