BACK TO BLACK
From the little black dress to a furniture accent or full black wallcoverings, the color black is never short on mystery or sophistication. I like to punctuate a room with a few black finishes, accents or hardware to create contrast and drama against lighter tones. Black creates instant elegance and can be used in any room.

RUSTIC VOGUE + COTTAGECORE
Nostalgia and comfort have replaced the previously popular stark modern designs. Rustic vogue is the idea of old and new pieces that work well together; ideal for a home with exposed beams, original floorboards or paneled walls. Cottagecore is rural, yet chic and involves a muted, pastel palette with patterns, along with vintage barware and gold accessories.

Using natural materials is a great way to add texture to any room and can be incorporated into many different aesthetics. The addition of a handmade piece to any design creates a sense of grounding and embodiment in the space.

TIME TO GET OUTSIDE EASE OF LIVING As outdoor living environments continue to rival those indoors, designers are on the lookout for dependable, genuine and innovative furnishings. Enter, Lloyd Flanders, the heirloom-quality outdoor furniture manufacturer on a mission to enhance homeowners’ lives. With impeccable workmanship, timeless style and unmatched comfort, Lloyd Flanders’ furniture achieves this goal, seamlessly. Made from materials that look as good as they last, each collection is handcrafted from the company’s Lloyd Loom® wicker fabric, woven vinyl or teak—and never burrs, cracks or peels.
HIGH ON STYLE ®
800.526.9894 LLOYDFLANDERS.COM LLOYD_FLANDERS
Lloyd Flanders never loses sight of its centuries-old heritage, constantly moving the needle forward to meet the wants and needs of today’s homeowner. “We’ve seen a growing increase in the use of color over the past few years,” says president and CEO Dudley Flanders. “While neutrals are still in high demand, we’re seeing a signiﬁcant growth in our brighter colored ﬁnishes: Denim Blue, Sea Glass and Woodland Green.” Another trend, notes Warren Juliano, senior vice president of sales and marketing, is the “new traditional” design style. “Consumers are mixing and matching classic pieces with bolder, more modern items to create a comfortable, custom look,” he says. A perfect ﬁt for the Lloyd Flanders family.
A D V E R T I S E M E N T
IN TODAY’S WORLD, GOOD DESIGN IS THAT WHICH IS TIMELESS, ATTRACTIVE AND LIVABLE.
HERITAGE MEETS HOME Lloyd Loom® furniture is still made in the same facility where this special process was ﬁrst developed in 1917. As an alternative to the then-popular method of wrapping cane around a frame, Marshall Burns Lloyd created a process where cellulose strands were woven into a wicker fabric. Each handcrafted piece of Lloyd Loom furniture made today uses the same process as more than 100 years ago.

Drawn to Design
As we emerge from the pandemic, we’ve all felt the need to be more inspired, by both big ideas and small pleasures. That led me to create a sketchbook filled with some observations on home and living. I’m sharing a page here that’s influenced by stories from this issue. I hope that you, too, will find your creative spark.

BLUEPRINT P OP U LU S
Architect Jeanne Gang’s designs have been called daring, visionary and neighborhood-regenerating, but when describing her first Colorado project that takes shape at the intersection of Colfax Avenue, 14th Street and Court Place, the best term may be “city-defining.” Called Populus, in honor of the aspen tree (Populus tremuloides) that inspired its design, the structure’s unique fenestration evokes the eye-like patterns on an aspen’s trunk. “On the exterior, the ‘lids’ of each window stretch outward according to solar orientation to shade the interior, improving the building’s energy performance,” says Jon Buerge, chief development officer at Denver-based Urban Villages, the firm behind the project. “The windows change in size in response to how an [interior] space is used, mirroring the growth patterns of aspens.” The 13-story mixed-use building— slated for completion in 2023—will include a 250-key hotel, 40 micro-apartments, event spaces, multiple food and beverage offerings, and a rooftop bar and view deck. It’s a building “that is worthy of Denver’s rising prominence on the national and international stage,” Buerge says, and “an impressive architectural legacy for generations to come.” urban-villages.com
What’s your take on “mountain” design? The days of embroidered bear pillows are over. I think good mountain architecture and design has evolved to be a reflection of the
location—a more harmonious response to the environment and how clients are interacting with nature. Do you have any current design obsessions? I’m currently obsessed with Caste, a furniture line from Montana. Their pieces are sculptural and organic—functional pieces of art that make a statement. What’s on the horizon? I’m really interested in the artisans and makers behind the products we buy. Last year, through Jaipur Rugs Foundation, I visited a rug-weaving village in India that helps to create opportunities for women through entrepreneurship and social development. I want to move our firm toward partnering with manufacturers like Jaipur Rugs, so that our purchases can have a much larger impact.

Denver-based design firm River + Lime operates under a simple premise when creating spaces for homeowners, architects and developers: “To complement, not compete with, the natural environment,” says founding principal Margaret Selzer, who oversees residential projects that span the mountains of the American West. “You’ll see that we’re drawn to organic materials and the layering of textures to create warmth and interest; minimal palettes that complement the uncomplicated beauty of the location.” Here, Selzer shares what drives her designs and what’s next for her firm. riverandlime.com

SALVADOR DALÍ: GARDENS OF THE MIND This spring, intriguing species will make their debut at the Denver Botanic Gardens—courtesy of Salvador Dalí. Nearly 40 works by the artist whose name is synonymous with Surrealism comprise the exhibition “Salvador Dalí: Gardens of the Mind” (on view through August 22 in the Freyer-Newman Center). Among them are fanciful color lithographs from the rarely seen “FlorDalí (Les Fruits)” and Surrealist series, for which the artist invented whimsical hybrids of botanicals and symbolic imagery. For Lys (Lilium musicum), he grafted vinyl records and sheet music onto a graceful lily plant (far right). In Pisum Sensuale (Lips), painted fingernails and lips dangle as fruit from a twining pea vine. Beneath the vibrant plants are equally unexpected figures, rendered in simple lines—an equestrian on a unicorn here, a pianist there—completing the scenes Dalí once described as “hand-painted dream photographs.” botanicgardens.org
POST MASTERS WHO: Mother-daughter style mavens Margot Hampleman and Kirsten Schmit, whose international assortment of timeless and trendsetting tile and stone—by brands including Artistic Tile, Pratt + Larson and Salvatori—is showcased in four Colorado showrooms (Denver, Vail, Basalt and Telluride) and on their vibrant Instagram feed. WHAT: Decorative Materials’ feed is “all about bringing the products to life,” Schmit says of photos that showcase some of the team’s favorite projects, products and application techniques—think shimmering gold grout lines, mosaic tile baseboards and pattern-play galore— in inspiring vignettes. WHY: Visualizing tile and stone in your
own home can be tricky. This feed makes it easier by showcasing a wide range of styles—from rustic wood-look porcelains to of-the-moment terrazzos—in myriad residential applications. And there’s no better place to discover what’s hot right now. “We look at fashion trends for color and pattern cues, and we are constantly in communication with our vendors to stay on top of what is on the horizon,” Schmit says. “Italy and Spain provide a great forecast of what we will see in Colorado over the course of the coming 12 to 24 months.” IN THEIR WORDS: “Currently, our clients are drawn to products that show the hand of the maker, whether it is a handcrafted tile that allows light to dance across the undulating, glossy surface or the organic pitting and chipping of a Moroccan zellige tile.”

DISPATCH DESIGN SCENE
MEET THE MAKER TED BRADLEY
A career in tech may seem like an unlikely prelude to the pursuit of fine lighting design, but for Boulderbased artist Ted Bradley, who left Google in 2019 to pursue his passions for ceramics and sculpture, it couldn’t have happened any other way. “I definitely couldn’t have created my designs without being a mechanical engineer,” Bradley says of his light sculptures, like the Samsara fixture, which marries graceful, LED-lit porcelain rings with rigid, geometric brass vertebrae. “The art part, where I envision the design, takes sometimes as little as a few seconds to imagine and 30 seconds to sketch. The making part, the problem-solving, is raw engineering that, in the case of the illuminated rings, took 12 months
and over 1,300 pounds of clay.” Coaxing the delicate New Zealand porcelain—one of the whitest varieties in the world—into the perfect rings required by Samsara and other designs is so complex, in fact, that it takes Bradley more than 300 steps and several weeks to complete just one—“and for every good ring, there are two or three that failed,” he says. But for Bradley, the reward is in that process. “Even deeper than my desire to finally bring together these two areas of perpetual tension—the artist and the engineer—was the desire to pursue the impossible goal of perfection,” he says. “To create a perfect circle with the imperfect tools of my hands.” tedbradleystudio.com
ELECTRIC PASS LODGE
What’s in a name? In the case of Electric Pass Lodge, a new development comprising 53 two- and three-bedroom ski-in/skiout residences at the base of Snowmass Ski Area, the name celebrates a design that’s completely powered by renewable energy. “We set out to design not only a contemporary, Scandinavian-inspired alpine lodge, but the most sustainable, all-electric condominium building in the Colorado mountains,” says Christian Barlock, principal at 4240 Architecture, which collaborated with interior design firm River + Lime on the project. Upon its anticipated spring 2023 debut, “Electric Pass Lodge will set a new standard for the future of building design in Snowmass and hopefully for ski resorts across North America.” A combination of a rooftop solar array and off-site renewable electricity will power the building, which includes a health club, lounge and ski locker room. Triple-pane windows, robust insulation, phase-change ceilings that retain and release heat, and a mechanical system that pre-heats or -cools incoming fresh air will all minimize the structure’s energy appetite while keeping residents comfortable even on the coldest winter days. electricpasslodge.com

THESE DUOS ARE PARTNERS IN LIFE … AND IN DESIGN. AS TOLD TO MARY JO BOWLING
Ben and Susan Work Homework, San Francisco
SW: At first, we were both skeptical about working together. Ben had a new architecture career, but in my interior design practice, I had a desperate need I knew he could fill. For some time he toggled between two jobs. After a while, we asked ourselves: “Are we really going to do this—be married and work together?” We are so aligned in terms of vision, narrative and goals for the client, that in the end it was effortless. BW: We respond to our clients’ needs and desires, but we are known for a soft minimalism—or, in some ways, a feminine brutalism. SW: I’d be the “feminine” in that phrase. There’s a tension that we think makes projects so exciting—it’s when opposing forces meet. Generally, Ben is more of a minimalist and prefers less adornment. Though I appreciate that, as a designer I like to get in and mess things up a bit. In the end, we value and find meaning in each other’s perspective, and it balances things out.
Ben and Susan Work at their San Francisco home with their dog, Toby.
BW: At work, we don’t have disagreements; it’s more like a merging of ideas. We might have two competing thoughts, but by hashing it out, they eventually merge into one. It’s more of a push and pull than a conflict, and it leads to the best ideas for sure. The end product is so much richer, and more filled with surprise and unexpected elements. SW: We both like to be strategic about lighting, and we always agree on unconventionally shaped rugs, streaky dramatic shadows, sculptural wall art and travertine. BW: She usually wants to put a banquette in every room, and because it’s an architectural intervention in interior design, I agree.

Kismet Connection Hunter Fleetwood and Mariapaz Fernandez
Fleetwood Fernandez, Los Angeles
HF: We met in a park in Washington, D.C. She had a Dalmatian, and I love dogs, so I said hello. In truth, I was smitten. A year later, she walked into the architecture office where I was working as a new employee. I was dumbfounded and remembered her after all that time MF: I really didn’t remember him! But we became fast friends. We had a lot in common from the get-go, especially both being architects, and we ended up dating, then marrying and then moving to Los Angeles.
HF: We both have a fascination with Los Angeles architecture and its spirit of experimentation and indoor-outdoor living. MF: I was born on the island of Mallorca, and the Spanish approach to architecture resonates here—it’s a natural, Mediterranean feeling.
HF: We seek simplicity. We hew to stylistically simple solutions that have informal derivations and a quiet aesthetic signature. MF: We begin a project by looking at a client’s rituals. We are more interested in what they do every day, and what they appreciate about their daily moments.
HF: Our process is collaborative. We come up with an idea together and pursue it. Married friends ask us how we do it without arguing, and I tell them that when we’re working we never disagree. MF: We have skills that complement each other. Hunter is good at committing to a concept or idea, and never steering away from it. I am good at spatial interactions and interventions.
HF: At home, Mariapaz doesn’t want anything in the house that is not beautiful. So, the simplest elements can become a project. We had a plastic Brita pitcher, and we wanted something more attractive, so it became a search for the most beautiful glass pitcher in the world. MF: It is hard not to work 24/7. We try to have non-work time, but work does permeate everything we do. To us, it is all one life.

Heide Hendricks and Rafe Churchill Hendricks Churchill, Connecticut
HH: We are both from the same town, Woodbury, Connecticut. We met at my parents’ house—my family was building a rock wall, and Rafe heard about it and showed up one day. We knew of each other’s families, but we went to different high schools, and we never met before that day. We both moved to New York City a year later and started dating, and we’ve now been married for 25 years.
Rafe Churchill and Heide Hendricks in the sun room of their Sharon, Connecticut home.
HH: When it comes to style, I’d say he’s more adventurous, and bolder with colors. I’m bold when putting things together; like hanging a Renaissance painting next to a modern Abstract Expressionist painting. RC: I’d say we are on the same page. After 25 years, we can walk into an antique shop, and she will be able to pick out exactly the things I like.
photo: lesley unruh.
RC: In college, I majored in sculpture and architecture. But my whole family was in construction, so I grew up in construction— I came to design work as a tradesperson. In New York, I started working on renovations of galleries and loft apartments. HH: I was working in publicity for art museums. But Rafe and I were buying homes, fixing them up and selling them on the side—that’s how we first started working together. It was my hobby before it became my full-time job. RC: In 2003, we got our first opportunity to work together on a project for someone else. It was what we called the “New Farmhouse” in Sharon, Connecticut. Heide joined me officially halfway through that project as an interior designer. A lot of firms offer just architecture or just interior design—and working with another firm can be a careful dance, making sure you don’t step on any toes and that you are speaking the same language. We have the advantage of speaking the same language.

ago—one stone on top of the other. We’re lucky as design professionals, not just because it’s an active market, but because it’s an exciting time of innovation in material development and production.” Energizing her outlook of late, Schicketanz has partnered with several like-minded prefab home companies on executing her designs. As opposed to trucking in materials and labor, the approach cuts time, energy and a staggering amount of construction waste. “Producing highly customized homes offsite,” she says, “is really the future.”
A home in Tennessee by Bobby McAlpine and Greg Tankersley boasts a connecting barn that doubles as a play area for grandchildren and an easily convertible party space.
In a sea of change, authenticity’s stronghold sets a reassuring undertone. Extended time at home “has taught us what serves us as a friend,” says McAlpine. “Decades ago, we were building houses that we learned to want whereas now, people are asking what the truth is about their life.” Adds Tankersley, “Clients are designing forever homes. I don’t think you can build more green than that.”

SPEAKING A R C H I T E C T U R A L LY RADAR
A strange thing happened this past year: Nobody visited. Stripped of show and distilled to domesticity, slowly, home began to look a bit different. If you ask architecture partners Bobby McAlpine and Greg Tankersley, it began to look like a country house. “I’ve found that people transfer more of their hearts to their second residence,” explains McAlpine. “A primary home asks, ‘How do I present myself to the world?’ Whereas the second home is all-eyes-off. It’s the truth.” Arguing the shift, the architects cite growing requests for insular amenities like spirited-away offices, accessory dwellings devoted to health and hobby, and outdoor rooms. In the same thread, they’ve observed a return to country home traditions of yesteryear in a departure from open-concept floor plans to “destination kitchens” and defined dining rooms, and in a fresh emphasis on workhorses like mud rooms and cloak rooms. For Tankersley, “beautiful, casual spaces that speak of humility” crystallize the mood switch. “I don’t think anybody finds ego attractive anymore,” he adds. With e-design now de facto, it’s an interesting time for realizing these shifting ideals of luxury. Architect Peter Pennoyer offers a robust menu of in-house services, from virtual renderings that allow, say, finish sampling under different lighting exposures, to 3D-printed resin models that are accurate down to exterior brick count. The final tier? Virtual reality, a custom, hyper-realistic model in the cloud that clients access via headset, allowing them to “visit” and further specify their home before ground breaks. The technology has proved valuable on the back end, too. “During Covid, we’ve had meetings between our Manhattan office and our engineers in Connecticut where we’re all ‘together’ in a house in Florida, slapping Post-it notes on a virtual wall,” he laughs. “I think it challenges us to do things that are even more special for each project.” Technology is also fighting climate change. In California, architect Mary Ann Schicketanz has been championing sustainability for decades. Net-zero principles are as integral to her practice as permits, yet looking forward, she says, will require a more radical stance. “We build the same way we did 5,000 years

Ebb and Flow OSCILLATING SURFACES MAKE WAVES IN THE HOME.
Manhattan architecture-engineering firm edg’s custom interior wall panels and coverings—the first to be designed entirely by Artificial Intelligence—utilize a client’s design preferences and complex technology to offer endless options of visually compelling surfaces.
“I don’t think this is a flash in the pan,” says Josephson. “The more people see that this is achievable, the more people are going to want it and pursue it.” Creating surfaces with an interesting and compelling presence is exactly what Manhattan architecture-engineering firm edg is doing with its new customizable interior wall applications. While leveraged through 3D printing and AI technology, the firm oﬀers “organic forms” consumers wouldn’t traditionally find in a contemporary box-like apartment building. “Living in a very ornamental city,” says the firm’s founder, John J. Meyer, “there is a natural desire to be creative when construction is extremely limited to brick and concrete.” Using hundreds of thousands of permutations from one algorithm to create these patterns, the options are limitless when it comes to creating wavelike, fluted or densely repeating patterns. This reinvigorated biomimicry reminds us that as humans we crave a connection to nature, and as interest in sustainability grows, the future will always be organic. “No one can deny in these designs that there’s dynamism and movement,” says Josephson. “The things we celebrate most, even in classical art, are decidedly organic.”
VIGNETTE: COURTESY EDG. PRODUCTS: COURTESY RESPECTIVE COMPANIES.
It’s no coincidence that fluted, linear designs are making a major comeback. Often visible on surfaces and architectural details—think interior walls, exterior siding, stairwells and furnishings with wood grains—architects and designers say the undulating design is a nod to nature, oﬀering a soothing, pleasing eﬀect that’s right for the times. “Many believe the art you hang on the wall is what gives a home character,” says architect Kevin Alter of Alterstudio Architects. “However, I believe architecture allows walls to have their own charisma and not just as a kind of neutral surface, but actually something that has presence. I think that is powerful.” The oscillating details create a sense of coziness—akin to hygge— and standout visual appeal, especially when applied to wood materials, Alter explains. Similarly, Jonathan Friedman of Torontobased architecture studio Partisans says these striking applications allude to the modernism movement. “It’s a mashup—a lot of diﬀerent eras are resurfacing right now,” he says. “By looking back and resynthesizing them, we can actually reinvigorate the architecture of today.” The firm’s Fold House project in southern Ontario, which showcases an undulating pool house structure enveloped into the side of a hill, puts the modern organic concept front and center. Cofounder Alex Josephson says that as these sculptural forms become more accessible, they grow more popular in the residential world.

Both Geotzzo Ribbon by Artistic Tile (center, left) and the Terrazzo Renata Fluted Collection by Ann Sacks (center, right) offer fluidity and old-world charm. The Maelstrom side tables by Caleb Woodard Furniture (below), which double as stools, combine curvaceous form and function.

One of the surviving relics of decadent early20th-century New York is linked to none other than Gilded Age banker J.P. Morgan. An avid collector, Morgan commissioned a personal library by architect Charles F. McKim in 1906, which later became public in 1924. Three levels of books soar upward of 30 feet to a ceiling of ornate lunettes and spandrels depicting signs of the zodiac and famous contributors to the arts and sciences, cementing itself as an impressive example of American Renaissance style. themorgan.org

Libraries have long been a communal gathering place and beacons of optimism, and the colorful façade of the Chicago Public Library’s Independence branch is both literally and figuratively brightening the neighborhood. In a brilliant move of urban planning, atop the two-story, 16,000-square-foot library proudly sits four floors of affordable and senior housing apartments. A challenge in and of itself, John Ronan Architects succeeded in ensuring that the mixed-use building accommodates—and inspires—residents and visitors alike. chipublib.org

“Rammed Earth is a spectacular artisan alternative to traditional building methods.”

n a time when efficiency—be it that of energy, function or flow—is top of mind, EarthBuilt is bringing a wholly unique solution to homeowners throughout Colorado. “We design and create spaces with rammed earth that we could never accomplish with other materials,” says Brett Fitzgerald, who founded the firm alongside Anthony Monteson in 2012. In the years since then, the two have established a team of trade professionals who share their passion for doing things a little differently. EarthBuilt’s portfolio showcases the stunning, mostly modern residences that have resulted. And it seems there is much more to come. Recently, during the Boulder Green Home Tour, EarthBuilt’s Terresen Estate was one of the most popular destinations. “We repeatedly heard people ponder why there aren’t more buildings like it, and utter in awe, ‘It’s as quiet as a cave,’” Monteson shares. “It definitely heightened the general public’s awareness of our approach.”
WHY RAMMED EARTH? Compared to more typical methods, rammedearth construction lends many unique benefits. • It’s quiet and efficient. Exterior walls that measure 2 feet in width block out most external noises and, in winter, help hold in the heat created from radiant floors. A solar panel array tucked discreetly above the garage can contribute to low electricity costs. • The planet will thank you. Rammed-earth construction promotes natural heating and cooling, reducing energy usage. Earth is also the most abundant, globally available natural resource to which humans have access, and using it instead of massproduced materials avoids harmful chemicals. • It will last lifetimes. Earthen walls extend the life span of a home into centuries, not decades.

GOOD SPIRITS BUNSA STUDIO
Designer Jennifer Bunsa aims for each project to be distinct. “I like for the personality of my clients to shine through—it should really be all about them,” she explains. When the time came to renovate a residence in Connecticut for homeowners in the food and wine industry, devoting a separate area in the house to a beautiful bar was agreed upon from the outset. jenniferbunsa.com Where is the bar located in the house? The renovated room you see here is actually a connector between two historic structures that date back to 1790. It’s really the first thing you see when you walk in the front door. I wanted the shiplap to echo the exterior of the old farmhouse while the reclaimed beams nod to original wooden posts unearthed during building. How is this spot used? Because of the homeowners’ line of work, we wanted to craft a special space for pouring beautiful wine and stirring cocktails—this is important to them. The wife also makes coffee here each morning, sits down and has a moment to herself after the children go to school. I like to think this nook provides a calming influence at any time of the day. Talk to us about the materials. The idea was to create contrast within the room but to keep it elevated with warmer tones and textures like the charred pine cabinetry, striking marble surfaces and unlacquered brass hardware, which is used throughout the home. I worked closely with Amuneal on the design and they completely understood the vision! In Weston, Connecticut, Jennifer Bunsa incorporated a Vola faucet, Miele coffee maker and Sub-Zero wine refrigerator into the bar space she designed with Amuneal, which features charred pine cabinetry and brass detailing. Benjamin Moore’s Simply White decorates the walls; the leather chairs are by Bassam Fellows.

Master fabricators Amuneal do it all—from creating doors and stairways to designing sleek kitchens and closets—but the brand’s sophisticated bar configurations are truly top of the line. CEO Adam Kamens discusses what goes into creating these polished vignettes. amuneal.com Make the bar specific to the space. It’s common to see these areas against a wall but Jennifer Bunsa took a look at every angle in her project and created a beautiful combination with mounted, see-through shelving that incorporates the rest of the home. Consider the finishes. Texture is very important and can actually create depth and warmth within a space. Shou sugi ban was used here, and we actually take the wood and char it, creating a very tactile effect. Fabricate a focal point. Concealed bars used to be very popular but now people are really embracing these elegant schemes and making them an anchor of the room. Mix up shelving. Amuneal offers open and closed storage, as shown here. Sometimes you want to hide the mess. Doors can create a nice weight, while open shelving adds airiness.
When outfitting the bar, don’t overlook the essentials: consider appliances, fittings, hardware and ice. Elevate your sipping experience with these market introductions.

The suite includes No. 78771 Faceted Pull and No. 78740 Faceted Door Knob, shown below. peguerin.com

Working with architect Garrett P. Nelson, designer Jolee Fennebresque chose a Brizo faucet, Niermann Weeks chandelier and RH pendants for this bar room in Charlotte, North Carolina. A custom paint color from Eastway Paints and art by Sarah Helser from Hidell Brooks Gallery completes the look.

Jolee Fennebresque of Fennebresque Interiors knew that a moody statement bar was on her client’s must-have list for her new-build home in Charlotte, North Carolina. But it wasn’t until Fennebresque saw the Tropical Storm Quartzite at the stone yard that the scheme started to take shape: the honey tones of the countertops
complement a custom brown-black paint color, setting the ideal backdrop for the art adorning the walls. To add warmth, she opted for brass detailing unifying the hardware, lighting, sink and faucet. The end result is a master class in balancing elements to achieve a glam but livable space. fennebresqueinteriors.com

IN GOOD HANDS
Wine enthusiasts know that how bottles are stored, and at what temperature, can make all the difference when uncorking a prized vintage. As bar and beverage centers continue to morph beyond the wine cellar, refrigeration for all types of drinks is top of mind. From craft beer and cold brews to sparkling water and homemade sodas, these new appliances keep refreshments fresh.
Zephyr has introduced its Presrv Panel Ready Single Zone Beverage Cooler, which can be worked into existing under-counter cabinetry or rooms like the office, gym, bar or kitchen. One of the coldest units on the market, the appliance holds 7 bottles, 112 cans and goes down to 34° F making it ideal for storing soda and beer. zephyronline.com
KEEP COOL Designed for total flexibility, the innovative 24-inch Undercounter Convertible Drawer Refrigerator by Signature Kitchen Suite allows users to toggle between several temperature zones depending on what they need at the time. The six modes include pantry, fridge, bar, seafood, meat or freezer and can be instantly changed from -7° F to 50° F to accommodate grocery store purchases. Plus, Wi-Fi connectivity on the SKS app allows you to manage it all remotely from your phone. signaturekitchensuite.com
EASY ACCESS Known for its amazing wine preservation systems, Dacor has added to its offerings with the 24-inch Integrated Wine Dispenser, shown in the new Graphite Stainless Steel finish. Using Argon gas technology, the latest model can store up to 4 bottles in dual temperature zones and keep the contents fresh for 60 days without the loss of flavor or aroma. dacor.com

Warm Embrace THE SEASON’S NUANCED, REASSURING PALETTES UNDERSCORE THE INNATE COMFORT OF COLOR.
Color is personal and visceral, the perfect hue as cosseting as a cashmere wrap. Just ask designer Danielle Balanis, who swathed the walls of her office in an uplifting sage green and the ceilings in a sunny paisley wallpaper. Formerly the shadowy basement of her Mountain Brook, Alabama residence, Balanis made it her mission to imbue the newly crafted work-from-home space with optimism and inspiration, relying on garden-fresh tones and her collections of cherished artworks and antiques. “The colors are healing,” she says. “It’s my cocoon of creativity. I come down here, get lost and find my groove.”
WR I T T E N AN D PR O DUC E D BY G R ACE BE ULEY HUNT
“Mustard is my number one, go-to color,” effuses designer Danielle Balanis. As testament, buffalo check portieres, Schumacher’s Katara paisley wallpaper on the ceiling and gimp fabric trimming the millwork bring a cheerful disposition to her otherwise deep green office space. daniellebalanis.com
Raised between Istanbul and Washington, D.C., interior designer Sara Bengur has a unique perspective on color associations. Luxe caught up with Bengur in the vibrant family room of a Manhattan client to hear her hot take on hue. sarabengur.com Where does a palette begin? I start by going to my clients’ homes with a giant bag full of fabrics, paint samples and carpets. I tell them to choose textures and colors they like— no stress, no ‘where would it go?’—just pure instinct. The pile they create becomes my starting point. Tell us about this room. The inspiration was the Proportio Exhibit at Palazzo Fortuny at the Venice Biennale, which my clients had seen and loved. In Venice, you notice lots of layers and rich colors. The room faces east onto a courtyard, so I felt using warmer tones of red and orange would ground the space. Advice for the color-shy? There’s a big difference between vegetable and commercial dyes. One thing I’ve found is that if you stick with natural vegetable dyes, and combine similar tones, you don’t get that unnecessary stimulation.

REPORT THE LIVING
What shades bring you comfort? Growing up in Turkey and vacationing in the Mediterranean, it was layers of ochre, terra-cotta and turquoise—whereas blue and green are the calming colors of the west. I find it fascinating that different cultures have different views on what nurtures. Where are you drawing inspiration lately? Anywhere! It could be an artwork or a great dress. The other night, I was watching the movie Luxor, and spied this Egyptian ferry painted in the most beautiful patterns of blue, red and peach. I had to pause and snap a picture. I’ll probably end up incorporating it somewhere.
Naturalistic, multifaceted color compositions distinguish the rug collections developed by Christopher Farr in collaboration with British designer Gregory Parkinson. This year, ‘Intertwine,’ a new range defined by space-dyed yarns yielding dimensional color effects, joins the inaugural collection, ‘Woven,’ sampled here in Color Weave Kilim in Mauve Straw and Beach Weave in Ocean Jade. Each rug is made-to-order in Mirzapur, India, with the ability to customize across hue, construction, size and style. christopherfarr.com
BEATA’S COLOR NOTES
“Blue is a really nice way of adding color without it feeling too dominant.” Naivasha Cotton / warrisvianni.com
“I almost always use this particular white on the ceilings, which has a bit of gray to it.” Strong White Paint / farrow-ball.com
PERFECT COCKTAIL “People think of our work as colorful, but if you actually look it’s quite neutral and restrained in a way,” insists designer Beata Heuman. Take for instance this London snug, where orange tigers prance across the walls and a theatrically canopied azure sofa stares down a moss green rug. Somehow, the tone is serene. “Generally, I do neutral backdrops with flashes of color where you wouldn’t expect it,” explains Heuman, whose whimsical portfolio shines in her new book, Every Room Should Sing. “In this room, the traditional order would have been plain walls and pattern on the furniture, so we tried to invert that.”
Another trick: Using the same white paint across a home’s ceilings and woodwork, a move she deems “really important to tying things together.” Heuman credits her philosophy to a deep-seated passion for art, citing Vermeer’s color mastery in particular as aspiration. “Think of his paintings. They’re all dark and neutral, and then you’ll spot these flashes—a white collar, a red lip.” Similarly, “every room needs a pop of color,” she says. “Here, it’s the red beak of the bird on the pillow, and I have to say, that pillar box red is great. If a room doesn’t feel quite vibrant enough, adding a tiny splash of it can really lift things.” beataheuman.com
“This fabric is a good balance of ‘out there’ and natural with the sandy background.” Tiger Silk / dedar.com

GRASS ROOTS DESIGNER BENNETT LEIFER SHARES THE QUARANTINE COLOR JOURNEY THAT MADE HIM LOVE HIS APARTMENT AGAIN. AS TO L D TO G R AC E BE ULE Y HUN T
My dad worked in finance, but he was very artistic. When I was a child, we’d spend weekends at the tiki bar in my grandparents’ basement painting and drawing. In college, I studied art history (as well as business), and I’ve always admired landscapes in particular. There’s this pensive, thoughtful quality to oil paintings that I love staring at—something about those rich, botanical greens. Which brings us to Covid. I had become a bit of a workaholic, rolling out of bed, crawling into sweatpants, going to the computer, and before I knew it, the day was done. I was looking for a hobby, and I thought, ‘Why not try oil painting?’ I did a ton of research, ordered my materials, and set out for the park near my apartment. I have to tell you, it was … truly embarrassing. There I was setting up the easel with an instruction manual, dabbing at my painter’s palette. At first there was this fear of judgment, but pushing through that fear to the other side was really wonderful. As the weather grew cold, I came inside and realized I needed a dedicated space for my hobby. Rekindling my love of botanical green, I began refreshing my apartment, starting in
the living room where I got rid of my enormous dining table (since I haven’t been entertaining at scale), adding a tea table for meals and artwork in its place. Then, I began pulling in threads of green scattered through my home. My favorite decorative screen—a gift from deGournay—used to sit in the foyer where I never saw it. Now, it anchors the space. Similarly, I had a beautiful Tai Ping carpet in my bedroom, where it’s wonderful, sweeping pattern of green and blue was hidden under a mattress. Now, I enjoy it every day. I added plants and reconceived my art collection. You know those moments when you just feel chic at home? The other night, I was FaceTiming with a friend, drinking from a green Baccarat glass, and I thought, ‘I feel chic!’ And I think it’s because I’m living in color. Green is amazing: It’s that perfect lagoon water, that perfect emerald jewel, that perfect eye color. There are these few tones of green that just make me smile. bennettleifer.com

TRENDS IN RENOVATION In the hands of the building and renovation pros on the following pages, houses become homes, outfitted with every comfort, convenience and high-tech amenity. Whether a kitchen island-turned-study station, a home office-turned-workout space or a bedroom-turned-Zoom room, the lines of design have blurred. But their focus remains clear to honor the unique voice and soul of every project. Through communication and collaboration, they deliver livable designs that find the line between purpose and beauty—all with one overarching goal: to create happy, healthy homes for people to live in, work in, and love.

FROM OVERHAUL TO ONE-DAY UPDATE Whether you want to fully gut your spaces or crave a quick and simple pick-me-up, flooring can accommodate. •M ajor changes: Ripping out the flooring in a room—especially a sprawling open-concept living space— can completely evolve the feel of it. Another idea Elicker deems popular is barn board around a bar, on a bedroom wall or as a fireplace wrap.
CREATIVE FLOORS 970.855.0250 | creativefloorsvail.com |
Flooring is the foundation of any space. It both makes a statement and can guide the rest of one’s aesthetic. No wonder so many homeowners pursue updating the floors as their most impactful renovation investment. Enter, Creative Floors. The Edwards, Colorado, showroom and design studio invites locals to shop an unparalleled selection—chosen by experts and chosen for your home with their insights at hand. “We go through thousands of sample options and narrow them down to only the best,” owner Shannon Elicker says. “Shopping for flooring can be overwhelming and it isn’t something you do very often. When you do, you need a professional who can make the right recommendations and keep the process fun, affordable and easy.” A pro is key, too, when it comes time for install. Creative Floors employs craftspeople Elicker calls “passionate perfectionists,” and when working with something as exact as flooring, who could be better?
Top This space features 8-inch wideplank oak flooring in the Tuscan style. Right A custom Moroccan rug in the White Beach style rests on 10-inch wide-plank oak flooring in the Lazio style. Center This gorgeous wool-andsilk stair runner is a custom creation in the Lizelle style. Far right Genevievestyle 9-inch wide-plank rustic oak flooring is perfect in this kitchen.
•M inute but influential: “We are known for our one-ofa-kind area rugs, sourced from all over the world,” Elicker says. “A stunning Moroccan or Tibetan silk piece makes such a statement—it’s an easy game changer.”

ABOVE ALL, BE BESPOKE When approaching a remodel, it’s important, McLaughlin says, to focus on the home’s biggest issues in the eyes of the client. While one might be tempted to open everything up because that has been a lasting trend, that isn’t the perfect move for everyone. “If they love the layout, it might be as straightforward as changing paint, lighting and furniture,” she says. “If the problem is small or unused rooms, lifestyle comes into play. Should an unused formal dining room be walled off to create a home office, television room or playroom, or should it be opened up and incorporated with the living room?”
4 TRENDS TO ELEVATE HOME McLaughlin shares four of the top trends the Elevation team is noticing. •P anoramic doors and windows to create indoor-outdoor entertaining space
ELEVATION INTERIORS 303.731.2965 | elevationinteriors.com |
For the passionate team at Elevation Interiors, successful projects come down to three
•F unctional and/or hidden storage, like mudrooms, charging drawers and space for small appliances in dedicated pantries •S mart features that enable one to control window coverings, lighting, audio, security and appliances from the palm of one’s hand •P erformance fabrics, which make livable luxury possible even when children and grandchildren are present
things: listening, communication and follow-through. These tenets, championed by owner Stephanie McLaughlin, have served the full-service interior design firm well, informing a process guided by connection toward the goal of personalization. “The best designed homes are those with well-thought-out spaces that function for the homeowner for years to come, accommodating their families and evolving lifestyle,” McLaughlin says. “We start every project by gaining understanding. We walk a client’s existing home and learn what they like and don’t like about it, which gives us our starting point. From there, we explore photos, furniture styles, colors and materials.” Known for creative problem solving, Elevation Interiors takes that initial inspiration and turns it into chic, yet cozy, and fully custom, spaces.

MORE FUNCTION: ALL THE BUZZ When it comes to what Colorado homeowners are seeking out for their remodels, maximizing space seems to be the overarching goal. Here are some of the requests Factor acts on most often: • Pop-top additions
FACTOR DESIGN BUILD 303.872.3482 | factordesignbuild.com |
•K itchens that have better storage solutions •B athrooms with enhanced features for pamper and prep •D edicated spaces for work and homeschooling
While popular movements are often defined by design approaches everyone seems obsessed with, the idea of a perfect home is today much more tied to customization. This is what guides the team at Factor Design Build, a full-service firm specializing in renovation and remodel. For more than 30 years, founders Josh Fiester and Kent Simpson, and their team, have been involved in all phases of residential and commercial construction in and around Denver and Boulder. And their secret sauce is innovation combined with a personalized approach. “Whether a project is big or small, we strive for all-inclusive and collaborative relationships,” Fiester says. Simpson adds, “This transparent dynamic allows for each project to reflect the homeowner’s personality.” The Factor team also works fluidly between its own departments—interiors, architecture, construction—and longtime trade partners.
Top & Right For a charming home on Humboldt Street in Denver, the Factor team remodeled this bathroom and dining room. The latter has a staircase leading to the upstairs living space.
A TAILORED PERSPECTIVE Asked to discuss how they approach a major remodeling project, Fiester and Simpson point to their design philosophy. “We’re about where form meets function. Factor delivers environments that are equally fresh and functional, and although our architects and designers have won their share of awards and recognition, their focus is on you. We will come up with ways to improve your daily life and breathe vibrancy into your home. We take the time to get to know you—your needs, how you live and work, what excites you. We then strategize the best use for every space and explore possibilities to make you comfortable but inspired. In short, you’re about to have a lot of fun.”

SIGNATURE WINDOWS + DOORS 303.442.4277 | signaturewindows.co |
With a renewed interest in outdoor living continuing to grow, windows and doors are at the top of many a renovation checklist. But they are also one of the more complex elements to execute. Signature Windows + Doors is stepping in for homeowners throughout Colorado, with best-inclass products and expert installation and service. Not to mention, a passion for working closely and collaboratively. Company vice president Rick Garhart elaborates, “We start with two questions: What is the design intent? What will be the primary purpose of the windows and/or doors? We address both form and function, and begin a conversation about what role our products need to play within the architecture.” Asked to share some advice for homeowners, he offers, “The hour-long, low-stress projects we see on HGTV are not realistic. Construction is ugly at times, but the batter never looks as good as the cake!”

reate a plan: •C “If moving out during construction is not an option, consider advanced prep for meals that can be reheated easily using a temporary kitchen setup in an alternative area of the home. Additionally, takeout is never a bad idea. Start your renovation during the summer months when more grilling and dining alfresco can take place. This will ease the burden of no regular kitchen access.”
To help homeowners turn their “six walls” into the ultimate haven unique to them—this is the mission behind Six Walls Interior Design. Inherently, it lends itself to renovation. Led by founder, CEO and owner Dawn Wilkinson, the Denver and Mercer Island-based studio has accomplished countless successful updates and overhauls. As of late, that has meant rethinking the way clients want to live. “Families want carved-out spaces to keep work and play separate and organized,” Wilkinson shares. “We are also seeing more requests for sustainable, eco-friendly materials and integration with technology.” Relevant, too, is a return to bespoke aesthetics. “More and more, we have the opportunity to bring out a client’s history and personality within their interior spaces, rather than design something that might be universally desirable but lack individuality.”

An unexpected mingling of glass, steel and stone within this Vail Valley home invites residents to relax and get comfortable.
Architecture: Mike Foster, Triumph Development West Interior Design: Erika Dowe Fitzgerald, Dowe-Studio Home Builder: Sean McGinley, Meadow Mountain Homes
omes tend to silently suggest a name, and this Vail Valley abode seemed to recommend its moniker, “The Linger Longer,” to its new owners. It’s true that there’s a dichotomy here of classic mountain features and sleek modern elements, but, as the name implies, that mix invites residents and guests to pause, get comfortable and enjoy the view. Designer Erika Dowe Fitzgerald freely admits that the home defies definition. It has the markers of a classic ski chalet—rustic wood, fireplaces, fur throws, antiques, even some antlers—along with mudded stone walls crafted with a classic “smear” technique. But any mountain overtones are tempered by the uber-modern use of steel and glass. The contrast comes to a crescendo in a striking glass-encased walkway that flows into to a window-filled, aspen-ringed great room the homeowners refer to as “the treehouse.” You could correctly call the home traditional, modern, transitional, European, even a bit eclectic—all living together under one high-sloping roof. “That is why it’s hard to classify,” says Fitzgerald. Even the home’s history is unconventional: It was originally used as a bachelor pad. When architect Mike Foster first glimpsed the home, tucked within Avon’s picturesque Mountain Star community, it had a bare-bones kitchen that lacked an oven and a primary bedroom without a door. That wasn’t going to cut it for the current homeowners, a family of seven that has long split time between homes in Kansas City and Vail. Foster addressed those initial issues immediately. Then, after the family had spent a few years in the house, he devised phase two: the addition of three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a great room for entertaining. It was a major expansion, ringing in at about a third of the total square footage. And to seamlessly marry the wings together, Foster proposed what’s become the undisputed standout: a striking atrium-like passageway topped with lengthy spans of glass. “It is now the most surprising feature in the house,” remarks the homeowner. Atriums aren’t exactly the norm in Colorado, yet this house has two. The existing entrance was already a sunny double-height space with a steeland-glass ceiling, and a sensitivity to the original architecture led to Foster’s proposal of extending
that idea for the passageway. But it wasn’t easy to pull off. “It was a challenge, with so many complex angles and slopes, but it was the best way to honor the pre-existing design—and it turned out to be amazing,” says Foster. Adds builder Sean McGinley, “It’s an art piece. I’d never done anything like that before, and I haven’t done anything like it since.” The other way that Foster and McGinley extended the original design was through continuing the “German smear” stonework in the addition—a style so named because of the irregular stone and heavy mortar found in the centuries-old cottages and castles of northern Germany. “It’s kind of an older, pioneer type of masonry, but it’s right next to the glass and the steel, which becomes such a cool mix,” notes McGinley. The juxtaposition plays out again through the great room’s traditional log cabinstyle accent wall, which is crafted from reclaimed barn wood beams and “chinking,” an old-school joint sealant, creating a dramatic divergence from the floor-to-ceiling glass wall beside it. “What we were hoping to achieve is the feel of a European chalet, with all these gorgeous textures, while having other modern elements that enhance rather than detract from them,” says Fitzgerald. As the architectural elements moved into place, Fitzgerald conjoined the home’s traditional and contemporary elements with furnishings that nod to both styles. A pared-back palette emphasizes the clean lines. “The design is driven by aesthetic, but also by comfort,” Fitzgerald explains. “The name ‘The Linger Longer’ inspired the ethos we used when approaching everything.” The stylistic push-pull is summed up in the great room, where modern Minotti chairs play off a substantial antique-style bar custom-crafted from 17th-century doors found by the homeowners in Denver. Everything, from the dining room’s soft slip-covered bench to the custom sink-right-in sofas, encourages relaxation. And yes, there’s fur, antlers and even some taxidermy (passed down from the homeowner’s brother-in-law) that say chalet, not beach house. “It nods to a strong sense of place,” says Fitzgerald. That sense of place is important to the homeowner, who envisions his house as a family gathering point for generations to come. He and his wife are eager to introduce the magic of Colorado to their new grandchildren. “We’re surrounded by aspens and wildflowers, so it’s amazing yearround,” he says. “It’s a literal breath of fresh air.”
This Vail Valley home’s existing structure is connected to a new addition by a glass-topped passageway. The large-scale oil painting hanging on the stone wall is a 17th-century still life by Flemish artist Adriaen van Utrecht.
The original open living room features dramatic soaring ceilings and mudded stonework. A striking circular chandelier by Fontana Arte draws the eye up, while a pair of sofas customized by designer Erika Dowe Fitzgerald and two Eames chairs are arranged to encourage conversation.

A pair of Allermuir counter stools is placed in front of the island. Colorado Buff flagstones, used throughout the home, are underfoot. Opposite: A dining room links the kitchen and living room. Fitzgerald designed the large square table with parquet detailing, playing off the high-gloss wood finish of the vintage French Art Deco chairs sourced from 1stdibs. The pendant is by Apparatus.
Above: “In every bathroom, we really wanted the materials and the lines to be sleek and clean yet incorporate the mudded stone and plaster walls for contrast,” says Fitzgerald of her juxtaposition of modern and rustic elements in this powder room. Left: One of just a few colorful notes amid the home’s neutral-driven palette, the jeweltone teal velvet upholstery of the primary bedroom’s Savoir bed adds a luxurious touch. Tom Dixon’s Melt pendants and the Kyle Bunting rug echo the bed’s gentle curves.
A grassy lawn, a forest of aspen trees and distant mountain views ring the residence, which is fitted into a slope. An atrium-style center entryway acts as a pivot point, dividing the lower previously existing home from the new higher addition dubbed “the treehouse.”
Out of the Woods
A design team addresses the dated details in a Castle Pines home to stunning effect. W R I T T E N BY H I L A R Y M A S E L L O S WA L D P H O T O G R A P H Y BY E M I LY M I N T O N R E D F I E L D
Interior Design: Mark Tremblay, Marc-Michaels Interior Design
nyone who has spent time looking at houses on Colorado’s Front Range is familiar with a certain design vernacular, defined by large-scale interior architecture and many layers of wood finishes. Such was the aesthetic of this Castle Pines home when Ed and Ashley Brown first purchased it. “We loved the exterior; it looked like Snow White could live there,” Ashley says. And because the residence offered the amenities they wanted—including fantastic views and a location right on the Castle Pines Golf Club, for Ed’s favorite hobby—the Browns bought it and turned it over to their design team, led by Mark Tremblay. Tremblay had six months to transform what he calls “a typical lodge-like home” into something brighter and more contemporary. “We had to be mindful of what we should remove and what we should leave alone because it already worked,” he says. “The house was in great shape and the owners liked the layout, so we didn’t have structural changes to make, which allowed us to focus on interior scale, finishes and fixtures.” To that end, his team—including senior project managers Melissa Adair and Rachel Ortiz, who oversaw the interior detailing—squared up a sea of dated arches that defined the interior doorways and revamped a series of stodgy fireplaces that were too large for the rooms they occupied. The designers also removed nonstructural columns in the entry and the basement that chopped up visual lines through the home. By simplifying the architecture, Tremblay’s team created a clean backdrop. “We really had to ‘de-wood’ the place,” Tremblay says, by which he means that the team deployed multiple strategies—including staining, painting or replacing the wood. In Ashley’s office, for example, the team reworked the built-ins by removing shelves and adding a mirrored backing. Across the room, an elegant marble-and-steel fireplace surround balances the look. “Keeping original elements was important to us all,” Tremblay adds, noting that simply staining ceiling beams darker, and therefore removing yellow undertones, preserved the textural charm of such details while bringing the space up to date.
Only two spaces got a complete overhaul: the primary bathroom and the basement. A warren of small, oddly shaped spaces prior to the renovation, the primary bath was gutted and reimagined as a contemporary oasis with his-and-her bronzeframed shower enclosures and a handsome copper tub. A shimmery copper screen hangs behind the makeup vanity, making “the most beautiful place for Ashley to sit and start her day,” Adair says. The basement bar area—which, before the work started, resembled an Olive Garden restaurant— became a contemporary entertaining space after Tremblay’s team removed wood floors and cabinetry and a stone arch above the wine cellar door. In their place, handsome black cabinets and modern glass-and-metal shelving—all atop a sleek honed limestone flooring—create a gorgeous space for the Browns to entertain. Throughout, layers of textural finishes and decor make the rooms feel both cozy and elegant. Upholstered furniture in tactile linens, velvets and leathers, in mostly muted hues with shades of blue woven smartly into the mix, make for pleasing scenes. “We pulled furniture from countless lines,” Tremblay says, “which helps make the interiors endure the test of time.” Carefully selected wall treatments, such as the metallic raffia wallpaper in the basement living area and the painted walls with gold-leaf detail in the primary bedroom, are stylistic counterpoints to the warm white walls throughout most of the home. Against these ideal backdrops hang exquisite, sculptural light fixtures. “Our philosophy on lighting is ‘the bigger, the better,’ ” Tremblay laughs. “We found unique pieces, and nearly every room has one that takes your breath away.” His favorite: the Skakuff fixture that extends into the entry from the second floor. Outside, the architecture remains entirely unchanged—enhanced only by fresh paint on the stucco, a light editing of the landscaping, and a contemporary stone sculpture by the Phillips Collection. While the Browns live primarily in Florida, the Colorado summers draw them to the Centennial State, where they relish their new pad’s fresh style and the opportunity to entertain, indoors and out. “When it’s just Ed and me, the home feels livable and cozy,” Ashley says. “But when we have company, the space is magnificent for entertaining. We use—and love—every space in this house.”
Homeowners Ashley and Ed Brown loved this Castle Pines home’s stone exterior, which designer Mark Tremblay and his team updated by painting the stucco Sherwin-Williams’ Shoji White and adding Sherwin-Williams’ Sealskin to the trim to accentuate the original architecture.
In the lounge adjacent to the bar, Tremblay embraced the original stone fireplace and stained the existing mantel and wood ceiling beams a deep gray tone. A custom sofa from Florida-based Interiors by Beverly is upholstered in a Holly Hunt fabric. It pairs handsomely with the leather Clemence swivel club chair by Verellen and the Hauser cocktail table by J. Alexander.
Above: The sleek bar area gets its good looks from updated cabinetry—painted a dark, moody charcoal and accented with brass hardware—and new stone countertops with a waterfall edge. Floating glass shelves showcase Ed Brown’s collection of Patrón Tequila bottles, amassed during his time as CEO of the spirits company. Opposite: To modernize the kitchen nook, the design team laid new stone floors and painted the existing built-ins Iron Ore by Sherwin-Williams. Arteriors’ Goulding chandelier crowns a seating area composed of a Maya round table by Taracea and armchairs upholstered in Tiger Leather.
Above: Framed family photos hang on the wall. In the guest room, a chair and ottoman with Holly Hunt fabric join a glamorous Juniper coffee table by Eric Brand and an Arteriors floor lamp. An agate-and-brass chandelier by John Richard illuminates the space. At the entry is an Infinity Bench by Outpost Original. Opposite: A Desert Modern Queen bed by Ralph Lauren Home pairs with nightstands by Made Goods and lamps by Jamie Young Co. to create a charming guest room. The ivory linen duvet cover by RH and ceramic discs by Loren Yagoda add textural interest.
Above: The main bathroom—anchored by a pair of bronze-and-glass shower enclosures—is one of the only spaces the design team overhauled completely. A Santorini copper tub by Native Trails and Waterworks tub filler stand atop Bianco Carrara herringbone tile, while a Fenwater pendant from Hudson Valley Lighting shimmers above. Opposite: Decorative ball chain from New York-based Shimmer Screen defines Ashley’s makeup station in the main bathroom, where his-and-hers vanities are topped by vein-cut Brilliant Black quartzite. The pair of Melange pendants— antique-burnished brass with alabaster shades—is by Visual Comfort and the mirror is by Robern.
The outdoor space is divided into zones for lounging and dining, all of them furnished with pieces from RH. A Costa teak outdoor sofa, Cosimo coffee table and pair of Havana lounge chairs make a cozy space in front of the huge outdoor fireplace. Nearby are a Marbella teak round dining table and Balmain aluminum chairs, ideal for enjoying sunny Colorado days.
POETIC LICENSE Honoring the craftsmanship of realism, a Denver-based painter finds beauty in everyday modernity. W R I T T E N BY M O N I Q U E M C I N T O S H P H O T O G R A P H Y BY C A L E B A LVA R A D O
bowl may seem like any other vessel, until Denver-based artist Daniel Sprick lays eyes on it. In the ethereal light of his paintings, any moment can become profound and precious. Whether creating still lifes, landscapes or portraiture, he is dedicated to extracting the sublime. “Beauty is what matters to me,” says Sprick. “Art is supposed to bend the world toward beauty.” His portrayals include classic scenes like ancient ruins and the churning currents of the Pacific. Yet Sprick is equally transfixed by the unglamorous, from highway overpasses to a pile of bones. When choosing what to paint, “I am not drawn to saccharine prettiness,” he explains. “Beauty can have ugliness in it too.” In this pursuit, the artist has become a modern master realist, with works exhibited at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Denver Art Museum and Denver’s Gallery 1261. A longtime lover of Renaissance painters, Sprick trained early on with figurative doyens Harvey Dinnerstein and Ramon Mitchell Froman. These traditionalist techniques ground his work, whether painting carefully posed models and vignettes in the studio or hiking with an easel in hand across hills and fields to paint on site. Painting outside has remained fundamental to Sprick’s practice, including producing a recent exhibition of plein air works for the Museum of Outdoor Arts in Englewood. He believes the experience has only enriched his more studied pieces. “It helps me synthesize a complicated thing to just a few strokes,” notes the artist. “That’s a skill I find really useful to make studio painting more alive and spontaneous.” Indoors or out, the process begins the same way. Primarily using oil paints on boards, “I try to establish the compositional shapes, the big patches of light and dark, then make the rest of the elements fit,” he says. Sprick’s overall palette remains subdued, caught in gentle shades of dawn or twilight. The final effect feels fleeting, on the verge of disappearing with a shift in the light. Producing the work, however, is far from brief. Sprick can spend years fine-tuning his pieces. His studio features a few of these unfinished treasures among the pottery and skeletons he keeps around for his still lifes. He remains ever patient. “You don’t know if it will ever come,” he confesses. “But I think somewhere in the ether, the greatest beauty has yet to be discovered.”
Artist Daniel Sprick constructed his studio on a piece of land he shares with another artist. Inside, a portrait of his mother hangs above a worktable (opposite). Shelves hold many books for inspiriation (left). The abundant natural light makes perfect working conditions for the artist (below). Many of Sprick’s paintings hang on the studio walls for months while he studies and perfects them (bottom).

Striking Gold In Aspen, an art-filled home takes subtle cues from the beauty of the natural landscape. W R I T T E N BY M A I L E P I N G E L P H O T O G R A P H Y BY R O D O L F O M A R T I N E Z
nn Cook and her husband have deep roots in Aspen’s historic West End, so when they decided to move, they didn’t want to go far. Luckily, the house they hoped to find turned out to be just a few blocks away. Set on a generous triangular lot, it offered such tempting potential that the couple bought it without ever seeing it in person. And while Ann’s brief specified “a home, not a showcase,” architect Greg Tankersley and designer Clive Lonstein gave them a little of both—and it worked. “We love every nook and cranny,” Ann says excitedly. Built in the 1960s, the property had undergone numerous updates and been given “a kind of Prairiestyle treatment,” recalls Tankersley, a longtime collaborator with the owners. “There was nothing special about it architecturally, but it is sizable for the area,” he explains, noting a large addition that had been grandfathered in, something current restrictions would prohibit. “We were always mindful of the surroundings and how this house fits into its historic setting,” adds builder Briston Peterson, a fan of the neighborhood’s walkability, tree-lined streets and Victorian residences built long ago by successful prospectors. Without changing the footprint or the roofline, “We realized we could move things—even the front door—to give the place some drama,” Tankersley continues. “I like experiential dwellings where you have to discover things throughout.” Working with project architect Holly Payne, Tankersley devised a floor plan that reveals itself slowly. “We created a process of walking in and through the house with chambers,” explains the architect. From the new entry gallery, a small vestibule offers pause before entering the kitchen and keeping room to one side or stepping down into the great room. On the other side of the gallery, a cozy library leads to the couple’s bedroom suite and private outdoor spa. Throughout the home, windows are “as narrow and tall as possible” for added height and better views of Aspen Mountain. “The rooms have interest now,” he adds, noting that “a little exploratory surgery” encouraged them to remove
the great room’s tray ceiling and add detailed beams and bracketing that instantly brought a certain rusticity, albeit a sophisticated one. “The couple has family with their own properties in Colorado, so we weren’t looking to incorporate space for relatives to stay,” explains Lonstein, who focused on conceiving entertaining areas with an easy indoor-outdoor flow. Ann, an art consultant, is on the boards of the Anderson Ranch Arts Center and the National Council of the Aspen Art Museum and wanted interiors conducive to hosting events for both institutions. To that end, Lonstein designed airy living and dining areas that lead to the terrace, and with the primary bedroom now on the ground floor, the second story could be given to guest suites. Responding to Ann’s request for rooms that were “modern but not stark,” Lonstein began refining what he calls “my mountain interpretation of an urban home.” “We knew we wanted something cosmopolitan, but we still wanted a nod to Aspen,” he continues. “One fabric started the whole thing—the sheer in the great room with a brown herringbone stripe that links to the trees.” He also let nature guide the palette, opting for creamy whites and soothing blues that “work well in winter or summer.” But there are surprises too, like the leaf-green shearling on the living room sofa. (“I like to bring in big color on rich materials,” he notes.) Lonstein also designed custom pieces inspired by the region’s rivers, trails and train tracks: a travertine console references sedimentary rock, a glass-topped coffee table mimics ice, and a blackened-steel light fixture that spans the living and dining areas brings an industrial edge. “It’s all about local influences modernized for today,” he says. “It’s also a good backdrop for the art collection,” he adds, noting works by Simone Leigh and Julie Mehretu. Outside, the understated character of the façade is reinforced by charcoal-gray siding that makes it recede into the very setting that inspired it. “There’s nothing overly ‘mountain’ here, except for the influence of the natural landscape,” says Lonstein. “It’s what the mountains really are versus what people think they are. It’s not a stereotype anymore. It’s the new way to ‘mountain modern.’ ”
Designer Clive Lonstein placed a custom oak-and-travertine console at one end of the living room, topping it with a lamp by ceramicist Peter Lane and vintage pieces by Nils Kähler, Svend Hammershøi and Carl Sorensen. The navy wool draperies are by Holland & Sherry and paired with Loro Piana sheers.
Lonstein designed the living room with custom pieces. The far coffee table is by Peter Lane and the glass-topped table was made with John Lewis Glass. That company also collaborated on the ceiling fixture with metalworkers at Vigilant Design and leather from MGH Studio, Inc. A Simone Leigh sculpture rests on a tall pedestal and a rug by Beauvais Carpets lies underneath it all.
The dining table was created in collaboration with Carlton House and is joined by Børge Mogensen chairs found at Vance Trimble and reupholstered in a Christopher Hyland fabric. The custom console is another Vigilant Design collaboration. The central painting is by Oscar Murillo and a work by Analia Saban hangs to the right.
Above: Custom pieces also feature in the primary bedroom, including cerused-oak nightstands and ceramic lamps by Peter Lane. The coverlet and embroidered linens are by E. Braun & Co. Opposite: Handmade plaster sconces by Atelier Demiurge illuminate the powder room, where Lonstein paired a bespoke bronze vanity with a Waterworks faucet. The 1950s vase is Gunnar Nylund for Rörstrand and the artwork is by Lari Pittman.

Susie Dews, real estate maven and founding agent of Compass Denver, has been helping clients buy and sell for more than 31 years. Today, 96 percent of her business comes from past clients and referrals, a fact she takes as a compliment and uses as inspiration to excel over and over—no matter the goal. “I work in all price points and enjoy every hunt for the perfect home,” she says. “When someone is in this process, it is usually their most important focus at that moment in their lives.” Dews finds ultimate fulfillment in helping them navigate it with ease and successful results. And when she says all price points, she means it. In 2020, her highest sale closed at $8,125,000 and her lowest at $440,000. The common denominator, she notes, is that space and location are still everyone’s prerogative. “Denver has a strong offering on both fronts, so our market is moving fast.”
“While many locals are in the market, we have seen an influx of outof-state buyers eager to call Denver home.”
Sitting atop one of the highest points in Cherry Creek North, 467 Saint Paul Street is a spectacular custom home as good as you will find anywhere. With an entrance that takes you through breathtaking perennial gardens, an arbor gate, tall and well-positioned privacy trees and many other mature landscaping features, you will feel completely insulated from the outside world. It was recently remodeled by the acclaimed Diamond Homes, and the owners spared no expensive in doing things right with an eye toward perfection that will be in stylistic favor for years to come.
FAMILY HAVENS According to Dews, buyers are loving Denver— and Colorado at large—for its unique ability to offer land and bustling location in one spot. She elaborates on a few of the communities that do this best: • “ I focus quite a bit on Cherry Creek, Cherry Hills Village and Greenwood Village. People are attracted to these areas because they have larger lots but are close to Denver.” • “ I myself have resided in Glenmoor Country Club for more than 25 years, and it is one of the hottest, hippest places to live. With more than 1,000 kids under the age of 16, it is a lovely place for young families.”

ALPINE MOUNTAIN RANCH & CLUB 970.875.1200 | alpinemountainranch.com |
A custom mountain retreat can be an absolute dream, but realizing it is often a daunting endeavor. Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club is a uniquely stunning residential community with a solution to the problem. Bordered by Steamboat Resort and connected by a cart path to Catamount golf club, the community features 63 5-acre homesites tucked away within a wildlife preserve. And the team behind it is offering buyers an in-house design and build program engineered to bring bespoke homes to life with ease and excitement. “We offer A-to-Z design and build services where our owners can be involved as little or as much as they like in the home-building process,” says Suzanne Schlicht, SVP and director of sales. It appears the approach has indeed been an
Currently, Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club is offering 3 custom market homes and a limited number of 5-acre homesites available for purchase. The community’s in-house design-build team is on-site to allow the purchaser the opportunity to finish interior build-out of market homes, with completion estimated in spring of 2022. The photo above shows 33250 Meadow Creek Drive listed at $5,965,000. Priced from $1,600,000 to $5,965,000.
LUXURY ENVISIONED ANEW According to Schlicht, there is an interesting trend taking place in luxury real estate in Steamboat Springs and many resort markets across the country. “There is a notion of a new ‘world-class,’” she shares. “Gone are the days when luxury meant rubbing elbows with others at a white glove-serviced country club. Today, the luxury market is about seeking wide-open spaces, with room to roam. Authenticity is the name of the game.”
enticing one, with more than 11 residences scheduled for construction this summer. Asked what the homeowners’ customization looks like, Schlicht says, “Mountain contemporary and transitional are our most sought-after design styles right now.”
“Ski-in/ski-out access and fly-fishing on the Yampa are two of our favorite amenities.” Top All Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club homeowners can access this barn and hay meadow, just one part of the development’s 1,216 acres. Left Lonecast Lake, Alpine’s fishing lake, is always fully stocked.

GET TO KNOW JORDAN •W hat is your favorite weekend getaway? I recently remodeled a home in Aspen for my husband and myself, and now that it is completed, I go as many weekends as possible with our children and grandchildren. •W here do you like to eat, drink and shop locally? My office has always been in Cherry Creek North, so it is my home away from home. Le Bilboquet, Quality Italian, Matsuhisa and Barolo Grill are my favorites. I also love to give local boutiques my business, and of course, there’s always Neiman Marcus! •W hat makes or breaks the sale of a home? Negotiation. My 25-plus years of building this skill come in handy often.

SUCCESS BY AFFILIATION
CORCORAN PERRY & CO. 303.399.7777 | corcoran.com |
Less than three months after becoming a Corcoran affiliate, Corcoran Perry & Co. agents brought the buyers to 7 Cantitoe Lane in Cherry Hills Village. The property closed with a final price of $9,450,000, which was the record high price for all Colorado Front Range single-family home sales in 2020. From Colorado Springs, through Denver, north to Boulder, and beyond, this home transaction led all 2020 Front Range sales.
Since its founding in 1971, Perry & Co. has built a reputation for family culture, collaboration, integrity and selling Denver’s finest properties. Last year, these qualities, as well as its history of attracting the city’s best real estate agents, resulted in an opportunity company owner Jon Larrance and his team couldn’t refuse: “We were chosen by Corcoran to affiliate and, with their assistance, mindfully expand throughout the state as Colorado’s only Corcoran operator.” Thus, Corcoran Perry & Co. was born— and in good time, too. Because according to Larrance, the market is “crazy hot.” “We have just not built enough houses in Colorado in the past 10 years to handle the demand of net migration to our state.” In fact, in 2020, Corcoran Perry & Co.’s agents have had to branch out of the Front Range to find their clients suitable homes and retreats, further necessitating the company’s expansion into Colorado’s mountain communities.

TEAM DENVER HOMES 303.874.1327 | teamdenverhomes.com |
With 40-plus collective years of experience, the experts that comprise Team Denver Homes believe that real estate is a marathon, not a sprint. “We intend to be a continuous value add for our clients, whether they’re buying, selling, remodeling or exploring market stats,” managing partner Michele Ciardullo says. “We invite them to call us year-round with questions.” The approach has resulted in an ever-growing client base. Today, the top-producing Denver metro and suburbs team has come to represent a diverse demographic and all price points, from $100,000 to $10 million and up. “We pride ourselves on our creative solutions for showing any property, negotiating any deal and winning every offer,” operating partner Mor Zucker shares. “Key to this is our true collaboration as a team. We all hustle and compete in a friendly way, but we are a family.”
“We think outside the box to help our clients compete in even the most intense markets.”
One of the most inspiring homes to be offered in Cherry Creek North (which is saying something), 475 Madison Street is a stunning Mediterranean Revival masterpiece. Immaculately designed living spaces give way to a luxurious 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, and the kitchen is outfitted with the best of the best: Sub-Zero, Wolf and Bosch appliances. Outside, a fountain, fireplace, trellis and gas grill invite open-air living. Priced at $4,250,000.
MUST-HAVE: AN ARDENT AGENT Asked to share the most essential tip for buyers, Ciardullo and Zucker point to having a pro. It’s not just about keeping organized. “We can see homes before they hit the MLS, which becomes more and more necessary as markets experience tight inventory,” Ciardullo says. A skilled agent is also able to target marketing efforts in the most impactful way. “And,” Zucker adds, “we network with not only our own friends and family, but also colleagues and past clients. Those relationships can prove lucrative.” On top of all that, Team Denver Homes perfectly showcases one other big bonus of having a real estate agent: their passion makes the process fun.
Top With picture windows and exquisite finishes, this kitchen and dining spaces epitomizes “bright and open.” Left Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the North Ranch at Ken Caryl Valley, this captivating home features mountain views, a parklike backyard, a theater room and a koi pond—just a few of its notable features.
