Denver Designer Show House: Foyer

In 2011, I was thrilled to participate in the Denver Designer Show House, a project to support The Children’s Hospital. Twenty-eight Colorado designers pitched in to give this century-old, historic Tudor in Denver’s Country Club neighborhood a fresh look before it went on the market for the first time ever!

Inspiration Objects

Beginning a room's design with a piece of art or object you love is a great source of inspiration. I've found that many clients have a treasured piece they want to be sure to include. As a designer I try to take inspiration from those special pieces. Finding fabrics or furniture that falls in line with what they already like is a sure win.

In this room, the client owned an antique Suzani and a pair of antique Argentinean chairs that she wanted to incorporate into the home.  We used a local upholsterer to center the design on the seat and back of the chairs. We made a contrast welt choosing one of the colors from the Suzani.

 

 

Here the client owned a piece of art from a local denver artist, Duke Beardsley . http://www.dukebeardsleystudio.com/  We included darker piece of furniture to balance the art work and move ones eye around the room.
