Sun Dial Rim Road, Back Country, CO

Project

The project was to take this large newly constructed unassuming home and transform it into a French Modern-Eclectic home while also incorporating a Colorado Mountain Chic flair.

The Client

As the saying goes, "Work Hard/Play Hard!" These are the words that describe the husband and wife team that I am blessed to have worked with and entrusted me with the design and development of their entire home! By day these 2 hi-powered executives are very determined and hard working, but by night they truly enjoy a glass of good wine and the company of each other! They also have a true appreciation for art and getting outdoors and enjoying the mountain air!

Project Inspiration

After the first meeting with my client, I realized how much they had a passion for the Modern/French/Eclectic look. Therefore, I decided to balance these themes with a Mountain Chic flair to create a luxurious high end feel throughout the home.

What We Did

After the design work was completed on the upper levels of the home and all the installations were complete. We then focused on some of the dead space in the basement. My clients felt stuck with 3 separate storage rooms. So after carefully reviewing the 3 spaces, I offered the suggestion of taking the larger of the 3 storage rooms which happened to be off the main area of the game room of the basement and convert it into a Wine Grotto. Immediately, my client's fell in love with the idea and said go ahead a draw something up and we'll take a look. So, after designing a double stoned archway leading into the Grotto cutting back the existing 3' doorway to a luxurious 41/2 ft entry way (which feels like your walking thru a tunnel of stone) and using reclaimed wine barrel wood as the floor and ceiling concealing the original monogram of the wine barrels they were hooked! All the while, I designed their Media Room cabinet and installed custom hand made French sconces to each side of the posts lending to a very French/Modern design!
