Iconic Californian homewares brand Heath Ceramics embodies thoughtful craftsmanship thanks to the extraordinary vision of founder Edith Heath—and it's this approach that the company drew on when transforming a cozy 1973 cabin in the Bear Creek neighborhood of Lake Tahoe’s Alpine Meadows Valley into a year-round getaway. Designed by local architect Charles O. Matcham Jr., the interiors have been given a sleek makeover with a focus on handcrafted details, while existing details—such as the fireplace crafted from local rocks—bring tactile touches of the rugged wilderness inside.
