This was a big, 3,200-square-foot condo with three bedrooms and four bathrooms in Telluride, Colorado with spectacular views of Mount Wilson and the San Sophia Mountain range.
The project was primarily interior design with a few custom-built furniture pieces, including a mirror to bring in more light, a leather-top desk, and oversized bunk beds with storage. We also created faux-Venetian plaster walls, which was a great juxtaposition to the rough stone throughout the space.
We sourced everything locally, all the stone work and other materials to add to its sustainability design component. But local takes on another meaning in Telluride because there really is nothing else around. So, sometimes we had tradespeople and specialists coming from Vail or Aspen, which are both about five hours away.
I dealt with all the local tradespeople and vendors personally, and consulted on some particularly tricky specialty painting and AV work for the space. I also procured some amazing paintings of featuring Bride Vail Falls and the Valley floor in Telluride. I actually found these painting hanging in a dark hallway of a nearby hotel. They were for sale, so I tracked down the artist, doing some old-fashioned detective work, and found him in Maine of all places. Unfortunately, he has since passed away, but the paintings have quadrupled in value!
The duration of the project was about a year.
