Denver Country Club Condo Refreshing Remodel

This project has been SOOO fun for me! I was contracted by my client to "refresh" some areas in her Denver Country Club Condo. After living in it for several years, she grew tired of her "usual stuff and style" and wanted to breathe new life into her space. Well... this "refresh" took on a life of it's own and turned into a full-blown remodel. We took each room in her place and gave it a face lift with new paint, furniture, artwork, accessories etc. It has been such a pleasure working with her and transforming her space and I am thrilled to share it with you!

Exterior of her Building
Living Room:
 Overlooking Denver Country Club golf course....stunning during evey season!
Office/Second Bedroom with closing bookcase wall on either side
 We updated with new countertops, new backsplash, new hardware, new sink and faucet but kept the existing appliances and cabinets.
Master Bedroom
Master Bathroom
Second/Guest Bath

Now that you have seen her space, you should know that she has recently purchased a new home so this condo will be for sale very soon!!

Golden Kitchen Remodel

This project has been a treat to work on!!! Not only was I able to assist and design this gorgeous kitchen in Golden Colorado, but I had the pleasure of working with and watching the transformation as the homeowners did most all of the work themselves.....while having full time jobs!!! Yes I know....I was impressed too.

This wonderful couple just celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary and rather than going on a trip, they decided to gift each other with a brand new that's my kind of gift! Even though they washed dishes out of their laundry room sink, lived in a construction zone for months on end, and compromised with every decision, I think they would both say all of it was worth it now!

Now they have a kitchen that they can enjoy and appreciate their hard work, not only for the upcoming holidays but for years to come with their friends and family!!

The countertops are a gorgeous quartz that have little hints of metallic copper that nicely tie in the cabinetry finish. I also love that the back splash is neutral and compliments the countertops, yet has a nice metallic touch with the decorative bronze inserts to break up the travertine.
 The AMAZING picture window is the prefect backdrop to the gem of a kitchen which overlooks a stunning deck and tree shaded backyard. Because the window is so large, we ordered custom Hunter Douglas Silhouette Blinds which allow flexibility for privacy and light control. The neutral, yet textured fabric compliments the space well without taking away from the beauty.

Scottsdale Vacation Home: The Master Bed and Bath

This master bedroom is HUGE, so the challenge for the room was to make it feel more cozy and intimate. We definitely could have done more with this space, however giving the time restriction, I am thrilled with how is turned out. It is a departure from the rest of the house that is much more contemporary because my client wanted this to feel more like her home and have a "pottery barn" look. With the softer color palette and the spectacular custom upholstered headboard, I think we found the balance between contemporary and comfortable.... CHIC!!!

I love this custom upholstered headboard. it has a slight pattern to it, to give it depth without being too over powering. Also the contrast linen trim/welt, help to emphasize the dramatic camel back shape.

I love this shot looking into the room. It shows off the beautiful coffered high ceilings, along with the GORGEOUS mirror that you see as you walk into the space.

Master Bath
This master bath is STUNNING!! There wasn't much for me to do besides add mirrors, hardware and accessories. I thought it was worth showing though.

Scottsdale Vacation Home: The Media Room

I love this little room!!! My client and I envisioned this space being used by the kids for gaming, movies and jumping around. With that being said, we also wanted it to be comfortable and stylish because it is positioned in the middle of the house and is very visible... especially from the great room. We wanted it to flow but not be in the same color schedule as the great room, so we chose this fun circle pattern with navy, teal and lime green, and ran with that palette. Not only is is fun and whimsical space, it also very practical with a queen fold out sofa. I love when a space looks good and serves multiple purposes :)

The ottoman is such a cute addition. By putting it in the same bold circle pattern, and contrast welt, it brings the space together. It is also great for additional seating.

This room had this great built in nook which was perfect to store board games and bedding for the pull out sofa.
I love the bold, graphic art we found. Both make for great additions for the room.

Scottsdale Vacation Home: The Great Room

I am absolutely ECSTATIC to share this post with you today. I have several other beautiful rooms on this property to show; however this is the one I am most excited about.

 This room when we arrived was just a large open space with A LOT of travertine tile on the floors. Because it was so wide open I wanted to create some defined areas around the two focal points (entertainment built-ins and fireplace) with area rugs. I wanted these spaces to stand on their own, but all work together seamlessly. Keeping in mind that this is a vacation home, I really wanted to keep it very comfortable for the whole family, but also functional when entertaining others. With the combination of a wonderful, cool color palette, over-sized furniture and whimsical textiles and fabrics, this is now a home away from home:)

Won't this be the PERFECT sofa for the guys to plop down on with a beer, and watch some TV after coming back from playing golf?
 Or where the family could all hang out on a watch a movie... That was the idea of this area :)

 PERFECT for entertaining!
After the furniture was delivered, my client and I found ourselves on these over-sized chairs catching our breath.
 When looking for furniture, she fell in LOVE with these chairs because she really wanted a place where she could curl up with a book or drink her coffee in the morning.

 I LOVE these bar stools. The perfect combination of wood detailing and upholstery.
 This is standing with my back to the windows looking at the front door. A great glimpse of the the 3 defined areas.
 The detailing on the base of this table is stunning! It is like its own work of art.
