Big News: Our Feature in Denver Life Home + Design

This summer, we had the distinct honor of being featured in the Spring/Summer 2017 issue of Denver Life Home + Design for our luxurious laundry room redesign, aptly dubbed “Command Central”.

This multi-functional space was originally a part of the garage, and quickly became one of the first items on the new resident, Robin’s, to-do list.

Today, the 245-square-foot room serves as the stylish and functional epicenter for family activities. It hosts not one, but  two washer and dryer sets to facilitate the laundry needs of four children. The room is also an organizational heaven, with double trash bins, a broom closet, loads of custom cabinetry from Kitchen Traditions, a large island, open lockers and cubbies for each of the kids, an extra fridge, a laptop/ work area and a Blanco laundry sink from Dahl Distinctive Design.

“The whole laundry room was designed to enhance the operation of the kitchen and family lifestyle,” Marianne Wise explains. “We did have some fun with other rooms in the house as well, but the show is all in that laundry room.”

Robin’s favorite design element are cabinets lining the space. In contrast to the cabinets in the rest of the house, which are a dark wood, these are a gorgeous, light buttercream maple.

The renovated room has become a favorite space, even with guests. “Every time people come through our home, their reaction is ‘Oh, my gosh!’ ” Robin adds. “My friends can’t wait to hang out in it.”

Colorado Custom Homes: The Devil is in The Details

Colorado Custom Homes: The Devil is in The Details

A home is more than a structure– it’s a tangible and technical representation of the family that inhabits it, and the life that they’ve created. Your home should tell a story, and communicate your sense of style.

When it comes to creating the perfect custom Colorado home, the delight is truly in the details. From bespoke tilework to personalized iron finishes, the smallest design details often make the strongest visual impact. Take a tour through some of our favorite projects to start dreaming up your perfect details.

Your foyer is your home’s chance to make an impactful first impression. Custom tilework is an excellent way to draw attention inward, while creating a beautiful focal point within the grand entrance of your home.

We cannot get enough of these incredible wood ceiling beams, complete with hand-carved detailing and an elegant iron chandelier. Beam accents are a great way to draw the eye upward to the lovely vaulted ceilings.

Elegant, sophisticated, and just plain fun! Paired with unique iron balusters, this staircase spans three stories and is the perfect visual pop, no matter what floor you’re viewing from.

You might not be able to fly to Napa this weekend, but you can certainly bring the wine country to you. In this home, custom iron accents frame the wine cellar entryway, bringing a little California flare to a Colorado home. We love layering different materials and patterns, like angular stone and whimsically curled vine detailing.

Whether you’re an expert in the kitchen or a chef in-training, an elegant custom backsplash will make you feel like you’re cooking in a 5-star restaurant. Bonus detailing: Check out the gorgeous carved wood piece above the backsplash, adding an extra pop of sophistication!
