Cherry Creek, Denver

A couple moved from near Boulder, Colorado into the Cherry Creek area of Denver.  They found a townhome that they thought had a lot of potential.  They are still working on it (mostly the basement), but completed a major remodel of the main floor kitchen area already.  I was not involved in the kitchen re-design, but I did enjoy helping with some paint colors, furniture and accessories along the way.  In the kitchen, dining and rear living rooms, a soffit with lighting above and below was added.   The “before” photos were taken during a walk-through before the previous owner (an older lady) moved out.  New color palette includes coppers, oranges, golds, greens, purples.  Prevailing wall color on the main floor is Sherwin Williams’ “Echelon Ecru” #SW7574.

These photos make it seem much darker in there than it actually is.  The color on the window wall is “Roycroft Adobe” (see below).  The green on the wall behind the sofa is Sherwin Williams “Olive Grove” #SW7734.  Lamp and window bench (Cost Plus World Market), tulip chair, orange textured rug (Scandinavian Design), New York Flatiron canvas and oval coffee table (IKEA), Yamaha baby grand piano (owned), window coverings (Bed Bath &  Beyond).  Curved leather sofa (Scandinavian Designs), wall art and toss pillows (Bed Bath & Beyond), large candle pedestal re-purposed as vase for sticks and side tables (Cost Plus World Market).

The center island is a cherry wood and all other cabinetry is white.  The granite they chose for the kitchen is a very unique blend of colors.  The coppers and golds play a part in it.  Metallic copper was brushed over Sherwin Williams’ “Roycroft Adobe” #0040 in the higher portion of the ceiling.  When the dividing wall was removed, the fridge moved to stairwell wall, along with addition of more cupboard and counter space (including microwave).  Pantry is behind fridge.  Tile behind stove is a combination of tiles from a tile store and some accent tiles from Home Depot.

Barstool table set (American Furniture) was added for entertaining, wine bottle displays and framed canvas (IKEA) finish off that corner.  The glass paneled door leads to the pantry.  The rock surround was added to fireplace, as well as TV inserted above, which is disguised as a mirror when not in use.  Cubes and green sofa (Scandinavian Designs), throw pillows (Crate &  Barrel), shag rug (IKEA), leather chair (American Furniture), ladder bookshelves (IKEA).

Couple desired “hotel look” and we settled on a palette of blues, greens and browns.  The paint is from Restoration Hardware, and the bathroom color is a lighter shade of the same.  Bedding (Restoration Hardware), bedroom set (Direct Buy).  We moved the plantation shutters from the main window in the front living room to the master bedroom, as they were a much better fit, as there were already shutters on the balcony doors, plus more privacy was desired for these windows.

Upon purchase, the courtyard between the house and the garage was most controlled by an overgrown hedge and had no character.  Multi-level stamped concrete was put in, as well as a fountain, a built-in grill, seating and this fantastic fire pit.
