Making the List

Welcome to our annual GOLD LIST issue, where we recognize design talents from across the country who have had homes featured in our pages throughout the past year. With the pandemic in our rear view, I am back to traveling across the country to connect with the incredible folks who create these stunning projects. Their gift lies in knowing how to be imaginative and inventive, source the most beautiful products and materials, and bring it all together for their clients.

Our editors and I are awed by the scope and style of projects that we publish, and we greatly admire the design teams behind them. Check out who made this year’s list. They are some of the best in design.

SCENE

MEET THE MAKER AOTH

For Malaysian-born, Denver-based artist AOTH (acronym for Apple of the Hour), early careers in interior and architectural design as well as photography provided the creative and technical underpinnings for a new pursuit: painting. Luxe met the artist to learn more. tappancollective.com

You refer to your style as romanticism. Why? When I was designing spaces, it was all about experiential design. With paintings, too, I want viewers to get a full experience, a story. And the story is always about love. Not just romantic love. I can romanticize anything at all. That’s why I’m a designer.

What inspires your luminous color palettes? I picked up the idea from photography that if you want to showcase light, you have to work with shadow—and I’m not afraid to play with darkness. I go with whatever feels right, but my colors often come from my passion for the desert. That’s the palette that calls for me.

Koi fish often make appearances in your artworks. I don’t like painting figures, but in an older piece of mine, some people saw koi, which symbolize good fortune, and commissioned more art with them. The more I’ve embraced this motif, the more I’ve come to realize that it’s a beautiful way to honor my Asian culture.

CHECK IN

THE WESTERN

One of Colorado’s last remaining wood-frame hotels began a new chapter as The Western hotel and spa, a 16-room gem in the heart of Ouray’s historic district. Originally built in 1891, the structure retained many of its mining-era details. These include its original front desk and hand-carved bar, an early-20th-century floor mural, stained-glass windows, tin ceilings and hand-painted wallpaper—which Denver-based Zeppelin Development and Dynia Architects painstakingly preserved during a two-year renovation. Now reimagined as a sophisticated, European-style lodging with myriad amenities such as a restaurant, general store and Nordic spa, the property features a palette of dark woods, rich leathers, and hues inspired by the dramatic landscape outside. thewesternouray.com

BLUEPRINT

AURA SNOWMASS

The Snowmass Base Village’s newest address is set to demonstrate just how effortless—and luxurious— an environmentally conscious lifestyle can be. With a sustainable mass timber structure by 4240 Architecture, the Aura Snowmass collection of 21 all-electric slope-side homes will exclusively use renewable energy sources for a nearly invisible carbon footprint. River + Lime, an interior design firm known for its biophilic spaces, imagined inviting interior schemes in a contemporary design style and cozy alpine palette that combines character-grade white oak millwork and creamy stone and tile to conjure serious hygge vibes. Completion is scheduled for summer 2024. aurasnowmass.com

OPEN HOUSE

MODERNO PORCELAIN WORKS

Porcelain has long been prized as a versatile and durable material for everything from tableware to tile, but it’s only recently been embraced by the design and construction industries as an alternative to slabs of natural or man-made stone. Leading that shift is Moderno Porcelain Works, which revolutionized the process of fabricating and installing large-format porcelain upon its debut in 2019. Now, the material’s potential is on full display at the company’s first Colorado showroom and fabrication shop, a 4,250-squarefoot space in northeast Denver. There, countless slabs (as well as countertop, flooring and wall installations) show off the material’s varied residential and commercial applications—and its striking natural beauty. modernoworks.com

ON VIEW

“VANCE KIRKLAND’S COSMOS”

The Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art may be best known for its impressive collection of international decorative objects but, this winter, the work of its namesake, Vance Kirkland, will take center stage. On view from February 15 through May 28, “Vance Kirkland’s Cosmos” explores the work of a distinguished Colorado painter whose fascination with outer space became the driving force for the second half of his career. Featuring examples from eight series created between 1954 and ’81, the exhibition includes Kirkland’s “Nebulae” paintings, which were rendered in unique mixtures of oil paint and water, as well as his vibrant and extraordinarily textured “Dot” pieces and a selection of rarely seen large-scale works. kirklandmuseum.org

ONE TO WATCH

EDIE URE

After years creating prints and naturally dyed fabrics for highprofile fashion clients in New York, Boulder transplant Edie Ure was ready to take her designs into the home—first with plantdyed velvet pillows, and now with wallcoverings available through WallTawk. Here, Ure shares insights on her practice. edieure.com; walltawk.com.

What drew you to wallpaper design? Many spaces have lost their sense of nature. My aim is to soften people’s homes with organic elements.

Tell us about your patterns. Some of my early motifs have an Arts & Crafts or Art Nouveau feeling, but I’ve started making bigger, looser patterns. One of them is a soon-to-be-released, full-wall design based on photos of a wild plum tree.

Do all your designs incorporate natural elements? I’ve created three categories: The first, named Earth, features patterns I painted using pigments made from ground-up rocks, dirt or even a burnt log’s ashes. The Botanicals category highlights flowers from my yard or the mountains, which were pressed, photographed and arranged in a repeat. And Indigo designs show off a deep blue from indigo plants that I grow myself.

Why do you favor natural pigments? I love the elemental colors of the natural world and I love the idea of weaving nature into design in a very pure sense. That has become my mission.

TALKING SHOP

KYNDRED

“Since the day we met, we’ve been collecting stuff,” designer Kyndra Georgeson says of the passion she shares with her husband, Larry. “Our basement is so full of antiques and thrift shop finds, you can hardly get in. We’d just been waiting for the right time and place to open a store.” That time was the fall of 2022, when the duo—who also helms the design and building firm Georgeson Style—opened Kyndred, a home goods boutique in the heart of Denver’s Park Hill neighborhood. Here, Kyndra’s taste for clean lines, traditional touches and patinated natural materials is on full display in an assortment of artisanal accessories for every room in the house. The shop’s selection ranges from textured stoneware vessels to plush recycled-cotton throws to cleaning tools that are pretty enough to display. “We want everyone to have products that not every store carries,” Kyndra notes. “As a designer and now shop owner, I want everyone’s homes to feel like a reflection of them.” kyndredshop.com

Pillars of Strength

POIGNANT AND POETIC, A NEW FURNITURE LINE HONORS AN IRANIAN DESIGNER’S FAMILIAL ROOTS.

Culture and design have always felt entwined for Iranian-born architect and furniture designer Saba Yazdjerdi. She honed her skills developing cultural venues in her native Tehran, including the award-winning Argo Factory, a century-old defunct brewery reimagined as a contemporary art museum. Now based in San Francisco, Yazdjerdi’s work continues to explore Iran’s heritage through the lens of modern day design. Her recently released furniture line, Pahlevoon Series, inspired by the millennium-old Persian martial art of Pahlevan, reinterprets the sport’s traditional training gear still in use by practitioners today.

Equipment like the mil—wooden clubs originally used to strengthen bygone mace-wielding warriors—were a familiar sight at her beloved grandfather’s house. “We were not supposed to touch them,” laughs the designer. “But I would

sneak in with my cousins and try to lift them.” She retained her childhood fascination with the sport that her grandfather helped revive, drawn to its sculptural paraphernalia and chivalric ethos. “Pahlevan means ‘hero’ in Farsi,” she explains. “The title is only given to someone with modesty, strength, respect and selflessness.”

Each piece in the collection subtly underscores these heroic principles. For her Mil-stone bench, the bleached-ash wood mil supports a delicate jewel slab of orange onyx. “Choosing a material that was beautiful and elegant, but also heavy was really important to convey that sense of vigor,” she says. Yazdjerdi also sees her work as a tribute to her grandfather and a way of continuing his legacy. “As a designer, it’s important to reclaim our Iranian identity, and introduce the culture, poetry and thousands of years of history to the world.” sabayazdjerdi.com

Below: Mil-stone, the latest piece created by designer Saba Yazdjerdi for the Pahlevoon Series, symbolizes the strength and spirit of the Iranian community. The bench is composed of bleached-ash wood, orange onyx and bouclé. portrait

WESTERN SENSIBILITY

Third-generation textile maker Kathryn Sanders is revolutionizing digital printing from her Missoula, Montana, studio. “Whatever idea you have about digital printing will vanish when you hold our textiles,” she says. Sanders has reimagined performance fabrics—utilizing water-based, non-toxic inks and techniques requiring less electricity. “If used correctly, digital textile printing can be as powerful a tool as the loom,” adds Chief Creative O cer Leana Becker, who is overseeing a new bespoke program for interior designers. The studio works with artists (especially those from underrepresented communities) and established brands like Philomela to bring unique designs to life. “We have unlimited colors and the ability to change scale at the touch of a button, plus digital printing is the most sustainable way to print textiles today,” Sanders explains. westernsensibility.com

DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE LUMINARIES HONOR THE LEGACY OF BOUNDARY-BREAKING ICONS RECENTLY LOST. AS TOLD TO MICHELLE BRUNNER

Cathy Kincaid on Robert Kime

Antique fabrics and furnishings bring history and gravitas to a room. No one knew that better than Robert Kime. He was really one of the first designers to incorporate antique textiles into his work and to use an ottoman as a coffee table, which is something we take for granted now because we see it so often. His rooms are relaxed—that’s the key. They are a true English-country look; soft, relaxed, elegant and classic at the same time.

I’ve always admired the drawing room he designed for Swangrove at Badminton Estate. T he walls are painted a very

pale gray. There’s a soft floral linen on the drapery and an antique oriental rug with faded warm colors. In photographs, even the cosmos appear at ease—they’re starting to droop just a bit in their vases. It’s so inviting; it makes you want to pull up a chair and Robert truly believed that rooms should be so comfortable, you don’t want to get up and leave.

The first time I met Robert was with John Rosselli at the Decoration & Design Building in New York City. He was a typical charming Englishman. Then at my London book signing in 2019, who shows up but Robert! We had the best time. We visited and chatted about books, and what was new in his shop—the usual things you talk about with a friend.

Storytelling through objects gives a room meaning and history, and Robert was such a gifted storyteller. I think that’s what antique fabrics, furnishings and accessories do to a room—they make it more interesting and also give the space a sense of timelessness.

When I look at Robert’s work, all of the different types of decorators come to mind. Some are like set designers, looking to create a totally new experience with dramatic transformations. Others work with things the client loves to conceive a room that is constantly evolving and changing. Robert was the latter. It’s been said that he always thought of himself as more of a collector than a designer, and I think that’s because deep down he was a curator at heart.

Richard Keith Langham on Carleton Varney

Carleton Varney was a real magician when it came to color; he understood its intensity and lasting power. Whether we want to admit it or not, pattern and color are stimulating. Carleton knew that. It’s what spoke to him, and—through the rooms he created—it’s what is still speaking to us today, in everything from his residential projects to resorts like The Greenbrier and The Colony Palm Beach.

The Greenbrier has such a majestic scale; Carleton really respected the bones of the resort. At the same time, he made it feel intimate through his use of saturated hues and vivid patterns. He once said that he hoped people would someday want hotels to be more than just lodging, that staying at one should be an event.

I think he would be happy to see the direction in which design is moving. There’s a resurgence of traditional motifs, fanciful prints and bold colors. You can even trace his influence to some of the newer talent today. They’re taking risks and stepping out with a little more flamboyance, which takes great confidence and panache, all qualities which Carleton had in spades. For someone like me who’s been in the business for 40 years, witnessing that continuum in design is wonderful. It’s exciting for our whole industry. There’s exuberance and good energy that you can trace back to designers like Carleton. He would have been thrilled knowing he laid the groundwork for that.

Not only was Carleton a man of style, but he was also known for his graciousness. It was that charisma that added to his ability to enliven rooms with such personality. He once said, ‘There’s so much ugliness in the world. If I can inspire people to look at their environment and help them to make it prettier, then I have succeeded.’ I love that sentiment.

In a Palm Beach villa designed by Carleton Varney, a bright rug mimics the waves of the ocean, while the painted mural includes one of the decorator’s favorite motifs: palm trees.

Robert A.M. Stern on James Polshek

When Jim Polshek became dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation in 1972, I was already teaching on the faculty. Jim had accomplished a lot as an architect and had a good sense of what the school needed after the student protests of the late ’60s.

When you’re the dean of a school, and good at the job, you should not only be a curator of talent, but also of diverse points of view. Right away, Jim did just that. He had a sense, perhaps coming from his days as a student at Yale, that an architecture school was an important part of a university. He had studied under George Howe, Eugene Nalle, Louis Kahn and Philip Johnson. When Jim arrived at Columbia, with the exception of

Romaldo Giurgola, the school did not have architects of the same high caliber. But he brought in different talents, like Kenneth Frampton and Mary McLeod, and put the school back on the map.

Later, Jim acquired a reputation as a preservation architect. He always said he didn’t believe in preservation architecture because he felt any good architect should be able to build sympathetically onto an older building. He had some interesting ideas, and with the support of James Marston Fitch, who started the preservation program at Columbia, Jim formally added “Preservation” to the school’s name. Before that, it had just been the Graduate School of Architecture and Planning—this helped Columbia become something important, especially in New York City.

Jim’s impact on the profession can be traced to one of his earliest projects: the

Teijin Institute for Biomedical Research in Japan—his first big commission. In those days, the connections between Japan and the United States were very slender. The war was still fresh in everyone’s memory. But Jim went with it and designed this extraordinary series of buildings, meticulously crafted in reinforced concrete. It was quite sophisticated architecture. To this day, it is one of his best buildings.

It can be difficult when you start out so strong, but not for Jim. He made his mark with many memorable projects like the planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History and a tower above 500 Park Avenue, which again, was a good example of a new building marrying itself to an older one. I studied many of his projects carefully, and while I may have taken a different direction, I always learned from them and from him.

Setting the Tone

EXPERT ON ALL THINGS COLOR, AUTHOR

Red is a kiss, a caress, a loving embrace. Red is also a warning and sometimes a welcome. It is a symbol of power and a badge of shame. Red is deeply personal, drawing us into the sensations of our own body as well as toward our attraction to others. It stands for the warmth of the hearth and the scornful flame of vanity. It is beauty. It is violence.

When we “see red,” the flush of anger pushes us to charge like a raging bull and yet bashful blushes are signs of modesty or shyness. On the other hand, the red-blooded among us bravely wade into danger in the name of love, duty and justice. And when those fires burn too hot, red can become a smoldering signal of transgression and decadence, like

A recent study suggesting that athletes wearing red win more often helps explain why, for many centuries, it is the color of kings and captains. Charlemagne even wore red from head to foot to underscore his new authority when crowned Holy Roman Emperor in 800 CE.

Red is also a sign of luxury and until the development of synthetic dyes in the late 19th century, saturated red textiles required great expense and effort, often set aside for the richest members of society. And designers of every era have harnessed its power in dozens of ways to bring the color of human life into the home. Billy Baldwin created a luxurious, immersive garden of

reds for Diana Vreeland’s living room and David Easton deeply infused his adaptation of historical styles with red’s heat.

In a more intimate context, red kindles our passions; think crimson dresses and lipstick. Recent branding for fashion labels like Valentino and Louboutin have used the color to evoke sex and power. In red’s seductive and warming embrace, we revel in its sensuality and potency, and in full doses or as a strategically deployed accent, red awakens the senses and makes us feel alive. cueva de las manos photo: javier etcheverry, alamy stock photo. textile

Double Vision

NEW WALLPAPER DEBUTS PROVE THE POWER—AND BRILLIANCE— OF CREATIVE PARTNERSHIPS.

ARTFUL GESTURES

NATALIA MIYAR X FROMENTAL

Tell us about the inspiration behind Ambia. I was commissioned by the Masterpiece London art fair to design a dining room. Knowing my heritage, they asked me to do something with Cuban influence. Soon after, Tim Butcher, Fromental’s co-founder and creative director, approached me and said, “I’d love to do a wallpaper together.” So, I started creating this idea in my mind to have an enormous artwork on the walls inspired by Cuban painter Wifredo Lam’s work. And that is how this abstracted, curvilinear design came to be. It’s not a flat print—it’s got raised elements with buckskin textures and hand-foiling. There’s a rich depth to the colors.

What makes Fromental a unique partner? Their enthusiasm for craft. My mother instilled a desire to not do what everybody else is doing, and Fromental is willing to be adventurous and elevate ideas. Tim even refers to himself as a weaver. There’s a handmade quality to Fromental’s work as if it came from the earth. Plus, there’s something fun about collaborating on a paper that’s different than anything either of us could do on our own.

How is designing a wallpaper and interior similar? It always starts with the brief—a combination of client, geography, architecture, history of place—and the context that I’m working in. From there, it’s about how I express that in the most elevated way that makes sense for everyone. nataliamiyar.com, fromental.co.uk

L U X E S O U R C E C O M
Interior designer Natalia Miyar conceived the Ambia wallcovering in collaboration with Fromental’s co-founders Tim Butcher and Lizzie Deshayes. The immersive design is available in four colorways and handmade by artisans in the UK.

SHADOW PLAY

What was the process like for this collection? I was beyond excited to collaborate with Calico because we have worked together many times over the years. They have set a high bar for designing wallpaper that evokes a presence beyond materiality—like a grass cloth or silk that just adds texture. When bringing a pattern and story to a room, it’s hard to come up with a concept that feels like the right scale and won’t overpower the space. I didn’t realize how difficult it is to do that well, and I have a newfound respect for those who do.

The designs are largely inspired by light. Did a certain place or time inspire you? I’m really drawn to shadows created in unexpected ways. With Bask, I had

this idea of being outside in the sun and feeling the warmth suffusing you, like being under a pergola. It’s not a specific place as it is a vibe. Then with Sylvan, it was more specific to skiing over the years and loving the view of the landscape, and bare birch trees, from the chairlift. You have the most beautiful shadows playing on the snow’s surface that are so pure.

Where do you envision these wallcoverings being used? I’m always looking for wallcoverings with color schemes, patterning and scale that can work in a myriad of spaces from a bedroom, even if it’s a feature wall, to a powder room where you might want something bolder, overscale and unexpected, to a kid’s room. I try to think of different contexts and settings for wallcoverings. kellybehun.com, calicowallpaper.com

LEATHERS

ILLUMINARE STUDIO X LONDUBH STUDIO

Talk to us about your studio. Brynn Gelbard: Londubh Studio specializes in surface design. My co-founder Lisa Donohoe has been in the decorative arts for a long time, originally working at a high-end New York studio doing work for designers like Ken Fulk and Peter Marino. I worked in independent film production, and we met on a project.

Lisa Donohoe: When we started the company, we wanted to push the envelope and keep experimenting with decorative applications—the potential is truly endless.

Tell us about your friendship and collaboration with Illuminare Studio. Brynn: Yes! Judy Amicangelo of Illuminare Studio has been designing car interiors since the ’80s, working with Mercedes, BMW and Porsche. She swims against the tide and is a real force. She taught us a lot when we launched our first collection of wallpaper, but this new release is all leather which is her specialty. We worked with a 130-yearold factory in upstate New York on the production. Lisa: When we got the first samples back, they took our breath away. Our work is very maximalist, and with these leathers we had an opportunity to explore something new.

And the designs? Lisa: The Greased Lightning pattern feels rock-and-roll, but there is a lot of architectural influence as well. For example, Neowise was inspired by a comet that was photographed over Newgrange, a 5,000-year-old Stone Age monument in my native Ireland. Brynn: Each pattern is created from steel plates engraved with motifs and then embossed onto leather. We started with two designs because they work best with the intricate process and hope to reach a different audience than perhaps our work has thus far. illuminarestudio.com, londubhstudio.com

THE MODERN GODDESS FEATURING THE ODIN¨ BATH COLLECTION

AU NATURAL LISA

Tell us about your background and how it influenced this collection. I grew up in Montana, but I knew there was more out there. I went to school on the East Coast, spent time in Florida, and now I live in New York. I was exposed to natural elements growing up on a ranch, but I didn’t embrace it at the time. Then once I started working as an interior designer in places like Telluride and Jackson Hole, I was able to appreciate the natural environment and the beautiful views of my clients’ homes. I’ve always been one to believe that your interior should reflect your locale.

And then Hartmann & Forbes called to collaborate. What are some of the materials and techniques at play? They’re not just printed designs—they are textural. Hartmann & Forbes’ materials were exactly what I was looking for in my projects. Our collaboration is a natural pairing. Sycamore, for example, is layered with laser-cut cork, sisal, silverpainted paper and metallic embroidery, while Rocks is made with faux suede and stitching that creates a three-dimensional

trompe l’oeil effect. And because the wallcoverings have reflective materials, the light hits it in a way that changes the colors and patterns throughout the day.

While inspired by the outdoors, these designs aren’t limited to country settings, right? This collection allows for a largescale installation of mother nature’s patterns anywhere! We took some of the rusticity out of the materials, which people tend to associate using in mountain regions, and added sophisticated elements like foils and shiny threads. These natural patterns would lend themselves beautifully to a more elegant, refined interior. lkid.com, hartmannforbes.com

CONTEMPORARY LIGHTING MADE OF NATURAL MATERIALS ILLUMINATES THE STORIED INTERIORS OF THE PARK AVENUE ARMORY. WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY KATHRYN GIVEN AND SARAH SHELTON PHOTOGRAPHY BY PATRICIA HEAL

PETITE PLAYER

Brent Warr’s Katie table lamp is compact enough to work in a range of environments while remaining functional. Shown atop the wood Paleta pedestal from Arhaus, both the shade and base are made of cast plaster and punctuated by playful semi-spheres for added dimension. When illuminated, the natural imperfections of its uneven surface reveal arresting shadows and color variations. Warr, an Auburn University graduate who is based in Atlanta, also offers the design in custom colorways. objectivegallery.com , arhaus.com

ETHEREAL ELEMENT

Porcelain’s materiality is reimagined with Polish-born interior designer-cum-ceramicist Natalia Landowska’s Cashew Cream wall sconce. The fixture is covered in multiple layers of glaze resulting in a delicate flaky texture that gives the piece an organic, earthen quality. At her circa-1900s Brooklyn studio, each thin, shell-like form morphs in the kiln and no two glazes appear the same after firing, ensuring that each design is a unique creation. natalialandowska.com

POWER POSE

Behold the Helena Floor lamp by Brooklyn-based ceramicist Danny Kaplan in collaboration with In Common With. A study in aesthetic purity, the fixture’s seductive form is achieved through coil-building, whereby rings of clay are stacked and then smoothed before firing. The matching shade conceals seven light bulbs, which can be dimmed by turning the brass knob crowning the top. Shown here in Stone, the lamp is available in six colorways and three brass hardware finishes. incommonwith.com

CLASSICAL NOTE

Designer Ryan Korban’s much-anticipated debut collection for RH Contemporary consists of five lighting pieces, including the Garonne Grand sconce. Pictured here against the layered walls of the historical Park Avenue Armory, the stately fixture channels traditional 1930s French silhouettes, while its sleek lines and matte finish echo a modernized, minimalist sensibility. The sconce is handcrafted with steal and finished in a smooth plaster. rh.com

MIXING TRADITIONS

Old meets new in Barbara Palatin-Doyle’s Charta Alba I table lamp. For the sculpted base, the Studio Palatin founder was inspired by 17th- and 18th-century designs as well as humble brown wrapping paper from an Amazon box. Palatin-Doyle, who splits time between New York City and her native Austria, worked said paper into unique crinkled forms before enlisting Augarten Wien, a 300-year-old porcelain factory, to bring the stunning white shape to life, which is topped with a handmade Japanese Hosho paper shade. lizobrien.com

TACTILE FORMS

The White Fins pendant is handmade by Atlanta maker Dana Castle of Crosland + Emmons. Each piece is composed of white stoneware and threaded through a brass stem that can be adjusted to the desired position, encouraging one to engage with the light like an evolving piece of art. Castle avoids color as not to distract from the raw beauty of her material, and finishes each design in a chalky white glaze that “adds a softness without hiding the evidence of the hands that made it.” croslandandemmons.com

STRIKING
THESE CAREFULLY CONSIDERED KITCHENS HIGHLIGHT A TIMELESS MIX OF MATERIALS,
PALETTES AND REFINED ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS. WRITTEN BY ALYSSA BIRD

PRO GRADE

When designer Bradley Odom was tasked with renovating this Atlanta kitchen for a chef and his young family, he played into the European sensibility of the residence, a Spanish Revival built in 1903. “We wanted to stay true to the home’s architecture,” says

Odom, who reworked the space to include a new pantry, more storage and larger windows that bring in light and take advantage of backyard views. With function top of mind, Odom arranged the long, narrow room with two movable islands—one for prep and one for serving—and a layout that provides easy access to the refrigerator, range, sink and dishwashers. Glass cabinetry replaced a cluttered desk area, providing display space for the homeowners’ collection of Astier de Villatte ceramics, durable bluestone flooring stands up to the wear of family life and a

backsplash of uneven tile lends texture. Meanwhile, a former laundry room was transformed into the new pantry, complete with a hidden door concealed within a wall of cabinetry painted a dramatic shade of aubergine that complements the kitchen’s green ish-gray cabinetry. “The clients were adamant about not wanting a white space and they set the tone, which is sophisticated and moody,” Odom says. Art also played a critical role, with two wooden game plaques-turnedsconces acting as the starting point for the entire scheme. bradleyodom.com

COLOR STORY

Fora Marina del Rey, California, kitchen, the pièce de résistance happens to be an appliance: a beautiful, blue range and coordinating vent hood by L’Atelier Paris Haute Design. The homeowner worked with the company, who specializes in bespoke ranges, cabinetry and fixtures, on the bold selection. “We landed on a custom 95-inch range with a 63-inch vent hood in Brilliant Blue that includes drawers for utensils and spice storage,” explains co-founder and creative director Maria Moraes. In addition to four gas burners, the range features a coup de feu for simmering and slow-cooking, a lava-stone barbecue and two ovens—not to mention stainless-steel countertops extending beyond the appliance for added prep space. According to Moraes, the finish color required much deliberation, and several di erent tones of blue were considered while the rest of the palette, including a brick backsplash and oak cabinetry and flooring, were kept neutral to let the range shine. Recently, the brand’s options became even more diverse: Their spectrum of colors has expanded to include five more shades (including Gossamer Pink, below), all of which is inspired by Parisian style. leatelierparis.com

“ We considered about 10 different shades of blue. The homeowner wanted something bold yet timeless and I love the nal hue we landed on.”

Tale ofTwo Kitchens

WHILE LOCATED IN THE SAME HOUSE, EACH OF THESE COOKING SPACES HAS ITS OWN DISTINCT FLAIR.

The entertaining kitchen in a GordonDunning project is inspired by a cozy English bar. The space is enveloped in Benjamin Moore’s Boreal Forest and illuminated by an RH light fixture (this page and opposite). Meanwhile, in the main kitchen, an antiqued-mirror backsplash and artwork found at a Paris flea market dresses up the area surrounding a Lacanche range. The cabinetry is painted Benjamin Moore’s Gray Mist and Circa Lighting pendants hang above the island (following page).

As part of the renovation of a Tudor-style residence in Atlanta, Lathem Gordon and Cate Dunning of design firm GordonDunning imagined not one, but two kitchens for a couple with a young child. The initial plan was to simply relocate the space—situated near the pool area—to a more central, family-friendly area of the home, but, in the end, the couple decided that having a second kitchen and bar area for entertaining better suited their lifestyle. As such, the

designers reconfigured the layout, added paneling and painted the cabinetry, walls and ceiling a deep green shade. “This cozy English bar moment is an homage to the home’s architecture,” Gordon says. “There’s a den and fireplace nearby, so it fee ls like the right part of the house to give you a hug before going out into the sunshine.” Meanwhile, the original living area was reworked to seamlessly flow into a new main kitchen. “Because you can see the space

from the living room, we wanted it to be clean and beautiful,” Gordon explains, adding, “the wife is very chic, and the barstools are a nod to her love of French style.” In fact, the client’s main requirement was a Lacanche range from France. Allowing it to take center stage, all other appliances are paneled, including the vent hood and walk-in pantry hidden behind what appears to be cabinet doors, making for an airy, streamlined aesthetic. gordondunning.com

Finer Points

A SALUTE TO THE ARTISANS TURNING DESIGN DREAMS INTO REALITY.

WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY GRACE BEULEY HUNT

Architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s famous dictum, “God is in the details,” is one we happen to agree with at Luxe We could fill a small library with the exquisite custom creations we’ve had the pleasure of publishing over the years. Allow us to start here—by plucking fantastic spaces from our archives and hearing from the craftspeople behind their defining features.

Caroline Lizarraga began her painter’s journey in college, flipping flea market finds for resale. After studying decorative arts, she founded her eponymous Bay Area studio. Here, Lizarraga’s one-of-a-kind art takes the form of classic harlequin-style, painted-and-glazed floors in a San Francisco home designed by Lynn Kloythanomsup of Landed Interiors & Homes. carolinelizarraga.com photos: haris kenjar.

ALL IN THE MIX

PATRICIA ARNILLAS, CONTRAPOSTO ART STUDIO

Tricks of the trade: I studied Fine Arts in Lima, Peru, where I was born. Incidentally, my professors were from Italy, Austria and Germany, and I learned 15th -century techniques, such as creating tempera using natural pigments mixed with egg yolk. This training made me resourceful and proved useful when I moved to New York City in the 1980s and discovered decorative painting. Secret sauce: I have become renown among my clients for creating murals on fabric and burlap to which I apply my own concoction of pliable plaster in layers. It strikes the viewer as mildly rustic and organic, yet contemporary. On view: This mural was inspired by the vegetation surrounding a residence in Greenwich, Connecticut, by designer Erik R. Smith and architect Eric J. Smith. The homeowner wanted to bring the forest into her dining room, so I spent time on the property observing, taking photos and drafting the landscape. patriciaarnillas.com

ART OF ILLUSION

Custom fix: Clients often come to me for stencil work. Other times, they want a painted scene on grass-cloth, or maybe they can’t find the perfect color or wallpaper. That’s where I come in! Arts evolution: While painting cabinets for a construction company in Palm Beach, I was exposed to murals, gilding and other decorative techniques. On one project, I remember walking through the living room and seeing artisans painting the walls like an Arabian tent. There were folds in the corners, drapings and tassels—all trompe-l’oeil. I was amazed. That was the moment I decided to step it up. Constant muse: The Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Miami. Each room has layers of hand-crafted details. My dream project would be working with a team to restore that building. On view: This dining room designed by Caroline Rafferty was a favorite project. The floor’s colors, sheen and tessellated pattern were a stunning design choice. @amelia.rossi.llc

BUILT TO LAST

CALHOUN DESIGN & METALWORKS

Mission statement: We are a metal fabricating company specializing in everything from doors and windows to railings, gates, range hoods and specialty items.

Origin story: I went to college for theater design; my studies included set design and metalwork. After graduating, I moved to Atlanta to work in film and started making furniture for friends on the side. My business grew out of a garage 27 years ago into the organization we have now.

On view: This railing is part of a project on Sea Island, Georgia, with Thad Truett and Suzanne Kasler. We worked to develop a design to follow the flowing structure of the compound cur ving staircase. Road ahead: I’m inspired by my talented employees, who are the future of this craft. I think everyone in design recognizes that artisans are harder to find these days. We have to find ways to inspire young people to continue these traditions. calhounmetalworks.com

AGAINST THE GRAIN

MILLWORK

In-house specialties: Custom doors, windows, moldings, shutters, gates, light posts, stairs, paneling and any other type of architectural millwork. Family affair: My great grandfather started this company in

a small town in Mississippi, but a mass fire destroyed everything. He packed up his family, and what little they had left, onto a horse and wagon, and moved operations to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1918, to start over. We’ve been here honing this craft ever since. Day in the life: We never know what’s coming next, which keeps things exciting. One day we’re making custom wine racks and the next, we’re building 18-foot-tall mahogany shutters. On view: So many amazing wood pieces were fabricated for this project with Phillip Sides, including the living room’s beautiful white oak-paneled walls. marshallmillwork.com

ALL THAT GLITTERS

JOHN OPELLA, MINIUM DECORATIVE ARTS & DESIGN

Sweet spot: Murals incorporating gold, plaster and lacquer on wall surfaces, furniture and glass. Road map: I’ve studied fine art, architecture and interiors over the years. First, while working for artists and later, working at design studios. My craft combines these experiences, from collaborating with designers at the early stages of a project to executing them on-site or in-studio. Inspired by: 20 th -century design, from the Art Deco of Dunand and Catteau to the modern movement of Le Corbusier and Eileen Gray. On view: This home bar mural was commissioned by designer Marie Flanigan for a client who collects tequilas. It is a moody evening lan dscape with gilt agave plants. My business has offices in Brooklyn and Portland, but I love getting to work with Marie because she is based in Houston, where I grew up. Plus, it’s fun to see how she transforms spaces in new and interesting ways. miniumdesign.com

TOUCH OF HAND

KIRBY SINCLAIR, SEGRETO FINISHES

Next generation: My mom, Leslie Sinclair, started Segreto Finishes about 30 years ago, so I grew up surrounded by art. When I was in school, I worked on the different teams within our company to learn more about various finish techniques. Before we opened our showrooms, our house was a revolving door of design and experimentation. Top line: We are a decorative arts and architectural finishes company, with a team of design, operations and artistic personnel, who work together to create beautiful surroundings for residential and commercial projects. We install different types of plasters depending on what our clients are looking for aesthetically, and how the plaster will be used. Material love: I’ve become addicted to plaster over the years. I love the organic feeling it provides; even our whitest plasters feel warm and inviting. On view: This image shows a bathroom of black tadelakt plaster, which is an all-natural, water-resistant lime plaster that can hold darker pigments. We loved collaborating with general contractor DJ Palmore and designer Ashton Taylor on this project. Talk about two inspiring people! segretofinishes.com

The story of K.H. Webb Architects is one of measured growth inspired by boundless passion. Based in Colorado but employed throughout the world, from California and Palm Beach to Nicaragua and Jamaica, the firm was founded by namesake and president Kyle H. Webb in 1999. While it jumped from an office of one to five in the first two years, that evolution has slowed, with most of those early hires still on staff 20-plus years later. According to Webb, this was somewhat intentional.

“Our focus has been on our craft more so than our own expansion,” he says. “Besides, we have a great thing going with this particular group of creatives.”

If client feedback is any indication, this is undoubtedly true. After all, what review is greater than a request for round two?

More than 60 percent of K.H. Webb Architects’ projects are done for repeat clients. Webb attributes this to his team’s approach. While he expresses a fascination with clean, modern design and warm, neutral materials, Webb

identifies his firm’s work as bespoke above all else. So naturally, the client must be heavily involved. “They are a part of our team from day one,” Webb says. “Ideally, we spend a lot of time up front learning about their vision, traveling to their other homes and getting to know their family, before we start drawing.”

Share your influences and inspirations.

Travel! Each member of our team seeks out incredible design wherever we go. We are especially inspired by the unique and regional materials we see, from stone quarries in the Alps to reclaimed woods sourced in forests throughout the world.

Up to this point, what do you feel has been your greatest success?

Our clients and the amazing sites they afford us the honor of designing upon, whether they are coming back for a “tune-up” or taking us to their new tropical getaway.

How do you see technology changing the design industry moving forward?

3D programs continue to evolve and the amazingly realistic digital renderings we are doing are becoming more commonplace. Soon, we’ll be standing in the virtual reality of our spaces as we create them.

“The design of a home is a tremendous puzzle to solve, and the completed view should bring dreams to fruition.”

Top This idyllic retreat in the Rocky Mountains was seven years in the making. The design maximizes views of the surrounding beauty. Left & Opposite left The owners of this award-winning home loved the original K.H. Webb design, but recently sought a dramatic change from mountain rustic to sleek contemporary. Right When a duplex unit came up for sale in Vail, the family living in the other half decided to buy it and transform the whole property. The resulting single-family home is perfect for the client’s grandchildren. Opposite right Committed to conservation of resources and energy, the owner of this residence wanted to make smart use of space, with the main floor being perfect for them when they are home alone and the other areas serving as guest spaces.

BERGLUND ARCHITECTS

Great design is the result of a thousand details thoughtfully and skillfully executed. This ideal is at the heart of Berglund Architects’ mission. Founded by Hans Berglund in 2004, the awardwinning firm has conceived and created a vast number of celebrated residential and commercial projects in Colorado, across the country and around the world. “Our first project was on Gore Creek in Vail and consisted of three prominent modern mountain houses that feature the curved roofline that has become our signature,” Berglund says. The tremendous reception that project received resulted in a number of commissions that helped launch Berglund Architects on the road to success. Today, they are a thriving, full-service architecture and design firm made up of 14 talented professionals. Adam Gilmer and Stephanie LordJohnson, two Berglund team members who were named as principals in 2019, add: “Among the myriad noteworthy design projects the firm has completed over the years, there are a few we’re

particularly proud of. These include a number of custom mountain modern homes in Vail, Aspen, Telluride and Denver, the net-zero, LEED-certified Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon and regional vernacular homes throughout the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean.”

ASK THE EXPERT

What influences inform your work?

Each project’s unique site and surrounding landscape are major sources of inspiration, as are our clients’ tastes, lifestyles and visions. Uniting the two is the most important part of what we do.

How do you include the client in your creative process?

We start each project with a charette— a series of on-site sessions where we walk the property, uncover the client’s goals and dreams, discuss budgets, priorities and inspirations, and sketch a variety of design options with them.

Describe your greatest creative strength. Our ability to create seamless indoor-outdoor environments that connect the home’s overall architectural expression with the land. Left

JACOBS INTERIORS

When someone has spent ample time exploring their craft and its industry, the experience is evident in their approach to the work. Such is the case for Yvonne Jacobs, who founded her firm, Jacobs Interiors, after building a long career at three other companies. Upon opening JI’s doors, she quickly embarked on a slew of exciting projects, the first of which she speaks on with fondness. “The Beaver Creek home was for a client with a modern aesthetic who wanted a full gut remodel,” Yvonne says. “We meshed well from the start—there was a lot of trust and creative freedom, and the rest of the team was amazing too.” That sense of connecting with the client is core to Yvonne’s design ethos. Her process always begins with conversations, both in-depth and casual, to discover the homeowner’s interests and how they want to present themselves in their space. “I’m looking to gain perspective on how they entertain and how they want to move and

LIGHT AS A FEATHER

A design team deftly transforms a château-inspired home on the Roaring Fork River into a comfortable modern retreat.

The proverb that “A man’s home is his castle” is usually understood to be a metaphor. But, in the case of this abode just outside Carbondale, the previous owners had taken it literally. Drawing inspiration from French châteaus, it had thick plaster walls, dark beams, wroughtiron light fixtures and oversized fireplaces. Then came in new owners, who possessed an eagle eye for good bones and a great location. Perched on a bend of the Roaring Fork River, the house offered imposing views of Mount Sopris and enough room to welcome their four adult children, along with their own growing families and friends. “It was the right square footage for us,” the wife explains. “We knew it would need some love.”

And so the renovation began, helmed by interior designer Denise Taylor of Aspen Design House, who worked in collaboration with senior designer Geneva Podolak Knox and Travis Jadwin of Silverado Builders, LLC. Instead of tackling everything at once, however, the couple decided to address the project in stages, allowing them to take advantage of the home during the summer and winter holidays. “Denise and Travis did a great job of making sure it would be livable during this process,” the husband recalls. And Taylor was on board with this plan. “People purchase a new home and they’re really excited to use it,” she comments. “It’s hard for them to wait 18 months to do that.”

The team ground down the home’s thick walls, washed them in a bright white and finished them in a smooth texture. Openings were also cut to accommodate new windows and doors. Tapping local stonemasons, they resized the fireplaces and removed arches on either side of the family room’s hearth. Now, with sliding doors stretching across the entire back of the house to reveal mesmerizing views of rushing water and snow-capped mountains, the refreshed abode is flooded with light, just as the couple had once imagined.

With the arrival of fall and the homeowners’ departure, part two commenced. The exterior

of the residence was painted a light cream and accented with dark trim. The primary bath was overhauled and a freestanding tub was positioned to take advantage of the view. Meanwhile, the kitchen was gutted and new custom cabinetry installed, leaving a wide berth for the 5-foot Wolf range Taylor had ordered. Unfortunately, the reality of supply chain issues brought about by the pandemic delayed the stove’s arrival. With the entire family—and their guests—poised to return to celebrate the holidays, Jadwin jerry-rigged a solution: He reinstalled the abode’s old cooktop, slid the original oven into the empty space and created temporary cabinets to disguise the gaps. Later, when the range finally made its appearance, he cut the countertop stone to accommodate it.

The new year brought stage three. The small balconies off the kitchen and dining room were connected, creating one large deck that wraps around one corner of the house. And, to infuse this home with new life from within, lighting played a central role. Rather than a more classic fixture option for the staircase, the designer created a sculptural design reminiscent of a flock of birds. A similar version crowns the family room, where a sprawling sectional and two plump armchairs offer room for the entire clan to gather and relax.

Where heavy decor once ruled, simple clean-lined pieces and upholstery in creams and camels now keep the focus on the view. Exuberant wallpapers abound as well. “I kept pushing for more and more fun designs,” the wife recalls. “It’s a huge home so you really can’t have white walls everywhere,” Taylor concurs. Artwork also helps to break up the expansive surfaces. Augmented by hints of gold in the fixtures and accessories, the interiors’ new warm tones help to turn soaring stone fireplaces from overpowering giants to inspired focal points. The final effect is of a light, modern space designed for family, friends and fun. “Everything we thought about and had a vision for, we got,” the husband says. “The outcome is fantastic,” concludes the wife.

The home’s boxy architectural volumes, or “pods,” as the owners call them, appear to be floating on the edge of the ski mountain. Some protrude, cantilevered, and others recede , the stacked, brown-and-white blocks not unlike the boulders and snow masses found in their natural surroundings. Construction was an architectural and engineering feat—double black-diamond level—but the clients had a specific vision for their vacation residence, where they planned to host family, entertain and, when they wouldn’t be skiing themselves, watch the slopes as up close as possible.

“I would make drawings to scale on graph paper and then photograph and send them over to Travis,” the wife recalls, speaking of Travis Mathey, the residential designer who worked on the project with the late Soda Mountain Construction + Design founder, Chris Rhodes.

The wife even took the lead on the interiors. “I’m the type of person who just knows what I want,” she says. And what she wanted was a decidedly untraditional ski lodge. “Something very modern and totally different,” she explains—different, specifically, from the log cabin they’d previously owned in Alberta, Canada. “Very sleek, uncluttered, not with an antler chandelier,” she laughs. “The minute you walk in through the door, the only thing you focus on is that mountain, because the entire wall is floor-to-ceiling glass.”

When the homeowners found the property, it contained an existing small cottage that needed to be torn down, and the restrictive site had a natural 30-degree slope. Some surprises at the foundation level—like a 16-foot-deep hole filled with concrete—necessitated revised excavation and a new civil and structural engineering plan for stabilization. The demolition turned out to be quite extensive. And then came the aesthetics. The owners didn’t want supports on the front of the house, so the team designed it to appear as though it was floating. This bridges a connection from the indoors, where much of the slope-facing south side is wrapped in glass, to the outdoors.

The layout too reflects the residents’ wish for airy views. The main floor contains the common rooms to the west and center—the kitchen, dining and living areas—while the primary bedroom suite anchors the east. And “transition rooms,” such as an office and gym with expanses of glass to the south and north, connect the spaces. Downstairs, accessed by a sculptural central stair, is the primary guest suite, three more bedrooms, a movie theater and luxurious spa and sauna, with a hot tub nestled in the cantilevered, glass-boxed eastern corner. “When you’re sitting in the hot tub,” the wife says, “you’re hanging on the edge of the mountain.”

Keeping with the sleek exteriors, she devised a plan for the interiors in a monochromatic palette, with consistent trims and plumbing fixtures throughout. Walnut is a prominent accent, as seen on the kitchen cabinetry and ceiling paneling in the living and dining areas. Meanwhile, she sourced black porcelain tile with horizontal veining and basalt for the fireplace surround. Horizontal variations elsewhere, such as the grain of the walnut doors, feel like extended undulations of the landscape. Porcelain paves the living area and the bathrooms as well.

Mathey notes that this home is a departure from current requests, not only for its modern spin on a ski lodge, but because of its closedoff kitchen—at the opposite of the “great-room paradigm,” he notes. “Instead of those spaces needing to communicate with each other, it’s more about prioritizing their views: Each room has a wide-angle lens for you to experience.”

The sights were so central to the project that, while the homeowners and the firm collaborated from different parts of the country over Zoom (in addition to site visits), they were able to review rendered sight lines on 3D drawings Mathey realized with the help of a surveyor and tweak plans in live time.

Now that the vision is realized, the house is exactly what the clients hoped for, if not more. The couple often visits their skiing-enthusiast friends in Vail or Aspen and then returns the favor with a weekend at their place. Everybody loves it. “We spend hours just sitting in the living room, watching the skiers,” the wife shares. “They look like little matchsticks coming down.”

MAKING HIS MARK

Michael Gadlin, a prolific abstract painter with his mind set on the future, finds purpose in altruism.

WRITTEN BY TANYA WARD GOODMAN | PHOTOGRAPHY BY MATT NAGER

Swaths of raw, unstretched canvas hang on the walls of Michael Gadlin’s studio, awaiting a paint swipe, sprayed stencil or the scrap beginnings of a collage. “I can’t think about a mark I want to make,” the artist says. “I just have to make it.”

A painter since 1997, Gadlin’s practice is improvisational, often working on more than one piece at a time. He combines spray paint, oil, acrylic and found objects—“Anything I can get my hands on,” he says. “Many years ago I stopped buying new materials.” Through the years, his art has evolved from a more figurative style and further into abstraction.

The artist splits his time between his studio and a newer interest: Building up the next generation of the Colorado arts community as executive director of PlatteForum, a Denver nonprofit fostering long-term educational partnerships between professional artists and underprivileged high school students. Gadlin’s position brings to full circle a relationship that began with his own postcollege artist residency and matured into a five-year stint on the organization’s board. “These experiences deepen my practice, because my own story has become richer,” he notes.

Gadlin’s work and life also honor his bicultural background, growing up between homes with his white mother and Black father. His father’s career as a scrap metal recycler and collector inspires his own commitment to recycled materials, as well as introspection on themes of race, class and ambiguity. And his sharp eye for the unusual and beautiful is as inherited as his altruism. “My mother was a writer and always introduced me and my brother to opportunities to serve our community,” the artist shares.

On Mosaic Community Campus, a cluster of buildings that will house the Denver School of the Arts, Gadlin is currently overseeing the direction of a public sculpture installation. The project allows him to collaborate with young art students and local welders, and to learn how to create large metal structures—a skill he now incorporates in his work. “I’m more and more interested in experiential things,” he reflects. “How do I transform a room?”

Gadlin’s desire is, at its heart, to create an impact by offering mentorship to the next generation of artists. “I am passionate about helping make sure the arts are accessible, available and remain diverse,” he says.

One glimpse of this Granby family home and you can almost hear America’s cowboy Gene Autry wistfully crooning “Home on the Range” while strumming his six-string. Nestled into a hillside with breathtaking views of the Continental Divide, the house sits on a 35-acre parcel within a bona fide dude ranch that’s been giving visitors a taste of Wild West living since 1919.

For over a decade, Steven and Sheryl Durham made the trek from their Pennsylvania home to the C Lazy U ranch for one week every summer with their children. So when the opportunity arose to purchase land there, they couldn’t pass up the chance to build their own Rocky Mountain getaway. “We have four young adult children and wanted to create a place where we could all be together during the holidays and summer,” Sheryl says.

To find an architect, Steven searched for images of rustic country houses and hilltop lodges. He noticed a running theme: Many of the examples he liked were attributed to Alabama-based architect Jeffrey Dungan. And when he reached out, he discovered Dungan was coincidentally working on a project two doors down from their Pennsylvania home. The Durhams took it as a sign that this design collaboration was meant to be.

Right from the start, the project demanded a dose of ingenuity. The lot came with a relatively modest 3,500-square-foot building cap—a rule which specifically applied to conditioned indoor living spaces. To make the best of this limitation, Dungan incorporated a series of indoor-outdoor zones to create an expansive living space. “There’s almost as much living area outside as there is inside,” Dungan notes. “You know when I say it out loud, I think ‘My God, how did we do that?’ It’s like getting 15 pounds of stuff in a 10-pound bag!”

On site, a team from Big Valley Construction, LLC led by project supervisor Greg Gardner helped execute the design, along with Dungan and the Durham’s longstanding interior designer, Barbara Gisel. “For Colorado, this house is unique. It’s not a ‘quote-unquote’ typical mountain home,” Gardner says. Architecturally, Dungan drew inspiration from small mountain cottages as well as the simple, abandoned mining structures that

dot the landscapes of nearby towns. The result is a sprawling manse that, despite its impressive countenance, still manages to project the same humble air as the architect himself. For the exterior, he relied on organic materials such as Colorado fieldstone and dark-stained wood that resembles the Japanese technique of shou sugi ban as a reference to the woodsy surroundings. “When we’re working in a context that is replete with nature, we want to use materials that express that same sense of honesty,” Dungan comments.

The continuation of stone and wood creates a seamless transition from the exterior to the home’s interiors, where hand-applied plasterwork and French oak floors lend Old World elegance. Designer Michelle Cone of Jeffrey Dungan Architects employed various wood stains to give the finishes a one-of-a-kind feel while keeping the overall palette neutral.

To further link the interiors to the home’s location, the Durhams displayed treasured artifacts and textile accents. Among them are a vintage American flag commemorating the addition of Colorado’s star and a collection of Navajo horse blankets that Steven tracked down himself. “The ranch has 200 horses and riding is one of the main activities here, so he wanted elements that added historical perspective and nodded to the home’s location,” Sheryl explains.

Because the house is at the foot of a hill, the outward-facing half of it gazes upon the majestic Rockies in the distance, while the other is enclosed by the hillside and pine trees. Landscape designer Kathy Aalto of Ceres+ Landscape Architecture used that dichotomy as a starting point for the plantings, incorporating a mix of evergreen and deciduous trees to avoid blocking any sight lines. “We wanted to make sure that what we introduced felt nuanced and natural to the site,” she explains.

And those views are certainly the main draw. “You can look at the mountains in the distance, and they’ll be different a few minutes later,” Sheryl says. But the abode itself invites relaxation and contemplation, too. “If this house could talk, it would say, ‘Be yourself. Look at these incredible views of the mountain, have a cocktail and let’s talk,’ ” Dungan adds. Steven agrees and offers a fitting conclusion: “Any spot that you pick—inside or outside—feels perfect. How many people can say that about their house?”

COLLECTIVE DESIGN

Life in Colorado is nothing if not inspiring. The environment has so much to offer with scenic mountains and ever-changing colors. Collective Design’s president of interior design Adrienne Rynes notes that the group is inspired by the outdoors, as she says, “The current state of design incorporates mountain modern design elements, clean looks with a rustic touch and a focus on bringing the outdoors in.” She adds, “We’re seeing a lot of neutral palettes with natural colors inspired by our surrounding environment.” The firm, established in 2016, is based in Frisco and serves clients all over the state, including Keystone, Vail, Steamboat, Winter Park, Aspen, Telluride and more. Rynes says, “We chose Frisco because it’s based in the heart of Summit County. Our location in the Basecamp Center shopping area makes it easy for clients to stop by to meet with our design team or browse our furniture store.”

COLLECTIVE DESIGN

Most Colorado residents choose to live there due to a love of the great outdoors. So it comes as no surprise that a frequent request from new home clients is not only to build a stunning home, but to do so in a way that brings the outdoors in. Collective Design architect Zane Levin says: “What’s so special about the current state of design and the Colorado community is the desire to embrace the outdoors, no matter the style of home. We are seeing more interest in walls of glass, outdoor spaces that feel intimate and indoor spaces that feel as if they are a part of the home’s natural exterior surroundings.” Servicing all of Colorado and beyond, the Frisco-based firm offers architectural and interior design capabilities. Levin adds, “The architecture team works closely with the design and construction teams on each project and throughout the entire process. That integration sets us apart.”

NATURALLY INSPIRED

What are your sources for fresh design inspiration?

We find inspiration in other Colorado mountain communities, seeking out styles that might be different from ours. Additionally, we are inspired by exploring other communities outside of the mountains to see if and how we can adapt different practices to our designs in the mountains. Every day—even on our commute to work—we are embedded in nature. That in and of itself is an inspiration!

GREAT GATHERINGS

What are your clients’ top priorities right now?

Family and friends! In our designs, that has materialized as large, open floor plans and bringing the outdoors in. Gathering spaces are the priority focus. That theme has been consistent over the years and heightened as of late. The aesthetic has simply shifted from traditional log cabin to clean, sleek design and from ornamental to understated.

The gallery represents quality 19th to 21st century regional Fine Art and museum-quality Native American Art—and after 45 years, they are recognized as an authority in both. Their client base includes museums, corporations, individuals and visitors to Colorado wanting to return home with a memento. “We sell to the consummate collector as well as the beginning enthusiast,” says Cook. He continues: “Although the internet has changed the way people buy art, it cannot replace the experience of seeing art in person.” Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and appointments are welcomed.

ART THAT INSPIRES

• Where do you find your inspiration as an art dealer?

We seek art wherever we are. Art in nature, museums, art galleries, auctions, books and, of course, in people’s homes. We also have a group of art enthusiasts that gathers to talk about—what else—art! We share recently found information or newly purchased art, so to expand our understanding and appreciation for art and artists.

As we represent deceased artists that can no longer represent themselves, it is our passion to preserve their legacy and promote their artwork.

• What local museums do you enjoy? Colorado has some world-class gems. In Denver there is the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art, the Cly ord Still Museum and the Anschutz Museum of Western Art. The founders of the Denver Art Museum were pioneers as they became the first museum in the country to exhibit Native American Art in a Fine Art setting.

DESIGNSCAPES COLORADO

A love of nature is one thing all Colorado residents seem to have in common. As Phil Steinhauer, owner and CEO of Designscapes Colorado, says: “Our state has a lot of diversity, with many people moving here from all over the country. Appreciation for the outdoors is something everyone has in common.” As a result, a big focus for home design is outdoor living spaces. Phil explains, “Two top priorities for clients right now are creating an outdoor space and excellent customer service. Actively communicating and working with our clients to make sure their space is tailored exactly to their liking is what helps us stand apart. Our customers appreciate the excellent care they receive.” The landscaping firm’s core values are central to their success. Phil adds: “We believe in being professional, delivering exceptional quality, always doing what’s right and échale ganas—give it all you’ve got!”

SUPPORTING LOCAL ARTISTS

Designscapes Colorado does custom-build landscaping and frequently works with local artists to create pieces for projects. Their retinue of experts includes masons, craftspeople and artists who use Colorado materials to create beautiful walls and art pieces. Phil says, “Projects include a custom steel art piece in a firepit, steel pendulum lights with star cut-outs and statues built to grace gardens.”

WEATHER WISE

The local natural environment is a tremendous influence on the creations the team generates. “The landscape, weather and seasons have to be taken into consideration,” says Phil. “They impact plant selection and material choices.” Designscapes Colorado also supports sustainable landscaping, using native plans and coming up with creative ways to add beauty to landscapes while being thoughtful about the environment.

INTERNATIONAL DESIGN COLLECTION

303.557.0999 | idcbuilding.com | idcbuilding

In all areas pertaining to real estate, location is everything. For International Design Collection and their extensive collection of wares, the location on Quivas Street just off of 6th Avenue means easy access for Colorado home designers and that the showrooms are even a first visit for out-of-towners. As Stephanie Herlory, marketing director for IDC, says: “As more people are building second homes in mountain towns, we often receive guests flying in who come to our building as a first stop. We love that!” IDC was founded in 2019 when some of Colorado’s finest interior design showrooms came together to create a beautiful, open space where homeowners and designers can be inspired for their home building, remodeling and interior design projects. As Herlory says, “Running fingers through a carpet or feeling the soft, suede texture of a Venetian plaster wall is unparalleled. There’s simply no replacement for the showroom experience!”

HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE

Herlory notes what makes IDC special: “We are fortunate to have working showrooms that allow our clients to see and test many of our products. In today’s climate of online purchasing, our clients can experience the form and function of many products in one location.”

DESIGN PARTNERS

When discussing the state of design in the area, Herlory cites the strong creative community and growing green movement. She says: “Colorado is awash with creative and thoughtful sustainable design. Organizations like Women in Design and the American Society of Interior Designers keep the community informed and connected. IDC is proud to partner with a number of these organizations in building engagement and forums to share ideas and improve lives through better design. We have an event space we offer to partners where some of these connections are nourished.”

JSM BUILDERS

It’s often the climate that lures people to Colorado, but it’s the culture and community that convinces them to stay. Jeremy MacGray came to the region in 1996 to ski and train for competitive mogul skiing. He says, “The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club drew me here for training, but the community nature of the town is what kept me here.” In 1998, he co-founded JSM Builders with Brian Heit. MacGray describes the Steamboat Springs-based company’s niche as “a blend of very high-end design and smart design,” noting that they specialize in “finding the best ways to spend the budget dollars so that the monies are actually experienced by the client when they live in the home.” Building for the future and with sustainability in mind, MacGray adds: “We use a lot of reclaimed wood to keep the spirit of the old west alive and to reuse discarded material that still has a lot of life left in it.”

EXPERT TIPS

MacGray shares long-held expertise based on nearly three decades of living in the region and running a business.

• How would you describe the current state of design? Colorado has transitioned to a mountain modern style over the last 10 years. It also has the challenges of designing for snow loads and the freeze-thaw process that happens throughout the winter-into-spring months.

• How does your company exemplify peak design practices?

We are a very collaborative company, working closely throughout the design process with the architects to ensure that the final product fits not only the desired aesthetic, but also the budget.

KASIA KARSKA

In the world of real estate, buying property sight unseen might be one of the most dramatic signs of commitment. Designer and builder Kasia Karska made that step after one visit to Colorado. She returned to her home in the New York City region after falling in love with the area, and quickly bought a Lake Creek property near Vail without even visiting it. She then bought a log cabin from Poland and had it shipped to the site. And in Hallmark-movie spirit, not too long after that she rented the constructed cabin to a man that she later fell in love with and married. Wow! Karska is based in Eagle County and works throughout the Vail and Beaver Creek area. “We have custom home builds, remodels and interior design work across the Vail Valley.” She says the current trend is leaning towards “mountain modern”—meaning open floor plans and spaces, big windows and meshing outdoor and indoor spaces.

EXPERT INSIGHTS

Kasia Karska shares some of her firm’s design techniques and current artistic inspiration.

• What do you consider your signature style? Our signature look is placing glass windows as a backsplash in the kitchen to bring nature into the space. We also use larger-than-normal size windows and run our floor material from the interior into the exterior spaces.

• Do you have any tricks you can share about home design? We give each of our custom builds a special name to create a feeling of “home” rather than “house” right from the start. Recent names include Shambala, Shagrilla, Leo’s Crossing and Baan Jai Dee.

• What is your inspiration? We are heavily influenced by our Colorado surroundings. We try to blend our natural environment with our indoor and exterior spaces by using reclaimed wood, Corten roofing material and naturallooking stone or tile.
