design_play - Barclay Butera at the Denver Design District by Annabelle Guldner

design_play - Barclay Butera at the Denver Design District
We were fortunate to attend this informative and inspiring event last night at the @denverdesigndistrict Barclay Butera's talk on how to run a successful design business and the path to it was fascinating. He also touched on the modern mountain style and the shift the mountain living has gone through; from stuffed and very stimulating interiors to simplicity, less clutter and calming living environments that draw the attention to the actual environment and nature. He made a beautiful analogy and called interior designers the therapist of a home; how true it rings. The fine balance between beauty, functionality, the client and what we know is the right design solution for a specific client and space. We wandered around the showrooms and took in the latest trends and styles for mountain living.

LIVE SMALL- LIVE WELL - we need less than we think by Annabelle Guldner

AT_play COMPACT LIVING MAKES FOR A HIGHER QUALITY OF LIFE
that is the issue today. we think we need more than we actually do need. once we realize and analyze our daily patterns and habits within a home, we will understand that it's not bigger spaces we need, but well DESIGNED areas; clusters of different activities. take a hard look at what you have and what you actually use all the time... the space we actually need to function will surprise you... it's very little. let design follow your needs and you will be happier on a smaller footprint, because it functions better!

furniture_play NEED A GUEST BED? A QUICK AND CREATIVE SOLUTION... by Annabelle Guldner

furniture_play A QUICK AND UNIQUE GUEST BED DESIGN
We had just moved to Colorado Springs and were expecting our first house guests there. Having moved from Savannah, Georgia to Colorado we downsized and took as little as possible, therefore only one original and custom master bed went with us... leaving us short of a guest bed.

Yes we could've bought an inexpensive bedframe and mattress at IKEA... but what's the fun in that?? Instead we bought some concrete block, a couple of 2x6's and 2 sheets of plywood.... voila! It's comfy, unique and original! It took us about 4 hours of our time and some imagination! Our guests love it!
