VRBO in Woodland Park, Colorado

We had the privilege of creating and implementing the design plan for this rustic retreat that will be available to rent later this month. This vacation rental has three bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, an open floor plan and a large back yard surrounded by trees. This project was so much fun to work on! Scroll down to the bottom to see some “before” photos. This home has been transformed!

The Home Is Designed Around Emotional Needs. ~Amanda Talbot

Isn’t this quote the truth?! I feel that my previous background in social work really helps me tune in to people’s emotional needs and translate that into a design that brings comfort to their surroundings and feeds their soul. Understanding how color, texture, lighting and space makes you FEEL is so important. Do you agree? I love how walking into a well designed room makes me FEEL. It’s all about the “feels” for me.

Broadmoor Townhome

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.

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.

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.

This is my ugly 90’s guest bathroom before I started.
This is the vision for our updated guest bathroom.
Here is a short video of how I applied the epoxy glaze.
This is the “AFTER” photo.
The end result of our guest bath makeover. I wanted to remove the built in cabinet on the left side wall but wasn’t able to at this juncture. We are happy with the final results. On to the next project! 😊

Boy’s Ski Themed Bedroom Reveal Video

His excited reaction when he saw his room makeover for the first time.

This ski lodge themed room was designed for my 11 year old son. He loves skiing very much. Since the ski resorts all closed early due to COVID-19 I thought we would bring the slopes a little closer to him. He was elated!

2068D939-57D2-4101-80AF-76B5831894C5I have been working on a design project for a young couple who just purchased a new build together.  The husband is currently deployed and the wife wants to make sure their home feels “like home” and is a breathtaking sanctuary upon his return. Being a military wife myself this project has really stuck a chord with me.  Their colors are Gray, Royal Blue and White.  Its going to be crisp and clean with a traditional yet a little modern flair.  This is a design board for the couple.  Cant wait to share photos of the final result!
