When Stacy Ewing of Stacy Ewing Interiors was asked, “how do you create the best atmosphere in your home for the ultimate Super Bowl Party or homegating experience?” Stacy's response was, “keep it SIMPLE, like Betty Crocker.”

The original homemade cake recipe involved too much time, too many ingredients, people were struggling in the 1930's and just needed a darn cake on the table for desert. So, an alchemist came up with the perfect wonderful magical powdery stuff that by later adding a couple fresh eggs, vegetable oil and water (miraculously) you have the perfect cake baked within under an hour!

When Stacy Ewing's client's contacted her.  They were staring at stark white walls and ceiling, builder spec (Home Depot) Chandelier, awkward windows.  Now, we are looking at this amazing Modern, French, Elegant design.

What We Did: WIth the collaboration of Stacy Ewing's entire team, "we went quickly to work" stated Ewing.   "By adding color to the walls, custom painting finish to the coeffered, circular ceilng area (all the while repairing the imperfection to the bullnose), designed and constructed the custom window treatments, had my friend French Artist custom hand make the chandeliers and floor lamp in foyer and master bedroom sitting area.  Also, I carefully kept the modern balance of this the french/elegant design by designing and making the geometric closing panels in the master bedroom (with blackout lining).   Basically had to be careful to leave no detail unnoticed!"

At Stacy Ewing Interiors we are always looking to enhance our client's homes with unusual surfaces.  One of my favorites is our reclaimed Colorado Barnw Wood Tiles.  Our tiles are like nothing else - able to add instant beauty and dimension to any space along with a compelling story about the heritage of each piece.

Our wood wall tiles are made from repurposed barnwood materials, which make them extremely environmentally friendly.  While adding such beauty and character to any surfaces like walls in foyers, alcoves, dining rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, hallways, offices, backsplashes, ceilings and artwork.   I really enjoyed using them as a border trim in the Modern, Rustic, yet elegant Wine Grotto my team and I specially designed for our client's in the Back Country, CO.

Painted Kitchen Islands

D.I.Y. or Let the Experts Paint your Kitchen Island?

Is your kitchen lacking color?  One way to create the most impact while establishing balance between modern and rustic design is by painting your Kitchen Island in one of your favorite colors!   Once you've decided a color one of my most commonly asked questions is how much it'll cost to do it themselves vs hire a professional. 

collage,_Kitchen_Island_turquoise.jpg

Personally, my firm has rescued several D.I.Y. projects that have gone wrong!  With several new paints HOT on the market that state you'll get this look are kidding you.  In some cases it may work well, if your aspiring for a flat matte finish but to achieve this look it takes a little more than just a paint brush.  So, if you are like many of my clients I've rescued, PLEASE leave it to Stacy Ewing Interiors Design Firm's, Ronny's Kitchen Islands to do the HEAVY lifting to acheive this look.  It's way more technical than it appears.

Some quotes from other firms to do this island ranged upward to $2500, OUR PRICE $950.00!  This price included all time and materials.  Now, we have another happy client!
