This beautiful guest bedroom was designed for a new build in the Broadmoor area of Colorado Springs. The views from the second story windows are breathtaking. The client asked for a bright and colorful pallet that complimented the neutral tones in the rest of the home. We mixed some blues and golds with gray and white to balance the colorful bedding.
Adding Live Cedar to a Flocked Tree
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!
Our family decided to decorate for Christmas early this year. We usually decorate the day after Thanksgiving. But, this year we felt like we needed more than 25 days of Christmas Joy. we haven’t put our trees up yet but we are in full tinsel mode at the Kautz House.
Coordinating Light Fixtures
Mixing and matching your lighting in an open floor plan isn’t as hard as you might think. Here are a few tips: Gather some photos/images for inspiration and to help you define your style. Next, select your metals. You can add something beaded or mix metals like black and gold if you want to. If you add a glass fixture check to see if the exposed metal coordinates with the other metals you’ve selected. This will maintain cohesion. Be mindful of how your new light fixtures will blend with existing drapery rods, door hardware and the pulls on your kitchen cabinetry. You may not want to be too “matchy-matchy” for example: hanging lanterns above your kitchen island and then handing another lantern above the table of an adjacent dining area. Have some fun with mixing different textures and coordinating metals.
Girl’s Room Design with a Nod to a love for Snowboarding
We had the distinct pleasure of working with a young military family, on Ft Carson, to design their 4 year old’s pink and purple room with a nod to her love of snowboarding. This family was the winner of the @cospringsmoms 5K Giveaway. Stay tuned for photos of a custom rock wall, for the opposite side of this bedroom, that we are working on right now. Because the family lives on base the rock wall will be detachable so they can take it with them when they move.
New Build in Aurora
I had the pleasure of designing the theme, color pallet and furnish this entire, newly built home. The homeowner was a dream to work with and is very happy with the look and feel of his new home. He wanted a Rustic, Modern Farmhouse with a touch of Industrial flair. I think we hit the mark.

Succulent Wall Art DIY
I have been working on a new project for a client building a large piece of natural wood and succulent wall art. Finally….we are completely finished and ready to deliver and mount on this baby on the wall. This succulent wall art is going to be the focal point on an accent wall in a new build I’ve been decorating for a bachelor. I like it so much I think I might make one for my own house.
Boy’s Space Themed Bedroom Makeover
We are almost through with this makeover. We plan to make 3D planets to replace the wall stickers on the accent wall behind the bed. This 9 year old boy is so excited about his new space!!
DIY Faux Marble Carrara Countertop
I really, really love Carrara marble. I don’t love the price tag, but who does? I decided to try painting my existing countertop and using an Epoxy coating. I had a 90’s guest bathroom that I’ve hated since we moved into our house. I decided to take down the ginormous 90’s mirror, change the lighting and faucet and update the countertop. I’m not quite through with this mini renovation but it’s coming along nicely.
