Opulence in Oxford Peak

A large traditional home nestled in the pines of the exclusive gated community of Castle Pines Village. The brief was to take the house beyond traditional and imbue it with a modern Arts and Crafts flair.
The clean lines and simplicity of modern Arts and Crafts style. My clients love of photography was also a big inspiration and we incorporated their beautiful images throughout the house.
Working with the traditional mountain architecture of the home, we painted the main living spaces in warmer colors to give the home the Arts and Crafts feeling the clients desired. We also painted the white fireplace surround in a rich deep bronze/chocolate to warm up the hearth and better match the newly painted walls. In order to maintain the balance of the Arts and Crafts look, I designed and incorporated straight lined, simple window treatments for the dining room and the kitchen (not pictured). Finally, we jazzed up the kitchen by custom painting the kitchen island with an antiqued and aged black process. To finish it off, we switched the chandelier over the kitchen table with a textured and warmer toned light fitting.
