Hosting a fundraising concert for 75 people in a private residence sounds like a daunting task but with the help of the experienced Strings in the Mountains staff and the Home on the Range designers, the hostess, Carrie Hayden is pretty relaxed about the whole process.  Kathleen, my design assistant, and I met with Carrie Hayden to go over little additions we need to make in order to have each area of the house looking picture perfect!   We know the house intimately, having worked through every detail of the interior finishes and furnishings with our client, the Haydens, over the past 4 years.  It’s exciting to see it showcased for such a wonderful event.


I will arrive the afternoon of the affair to “fluff the pillows” and to help with the table arrangement and last minute touches.  White tablecloths with yellow napkins will create a simple yet vibrant backdrop for the colorful  arrangements made up of Colorado wild flowers that will grace the tables and enhance the feeling of being in a garden setting.  Marno’s Custom Catering will provide the appetizers and  dinner and One Fine Day will create the flower arrangements for the tables.

One of our biggest concerns is what the weather will do!  The plan is for cocktails to be served on the lower decks followed by a sit-down dinner at tables positioned on the lawn with spectacular views of the Steamboat Springs Ski area and the south valley towards Lake Catamount.   After dinner, the concert will be on the upper terraced stone patios.  If this monsoon weather pattern continues into next week we may be faced with bringing the event indoors and finding creative ways to seat 100 people for both dinner and the concert – not ideal but certainly doable.   We went through the contingency plans today, thinking about what chairs we will need and how to position them so everyone can see and hear the wonderful vocalist, Mark Masri.

If you are in Steamboat Springs that night you should definitely try to attend – it will be a magical night.  If you can’t attend I will let you know how it all goes!  I will be heading to Denver after the concert to be there for a 7:40 a.m. flight the next morning so it will take a few days for me to post my follow up to the evening!  I’ll post some pictures as well so you can see how much fun we had!

I am so excited about the Strings in the Mountains Fundraising Concert that will take place on July 28th.  This amazing event will take place at the home of my clients, John and Carrie Hayden. Their home is quite frankly, a masterpiece that was designed by architect, Joe Patrick Robbins, and my design team and I have had the pleasure of designing the interiors.

Mark Masri will appear with special guest Anne Cochran.

The Strings Music Festival Annual Encore fundraising event will provide you with the opportunity to enjoy a private concert, with vocalist Mark Masri and special guest Anne Cochran. While there you can take in the  Hayden home in Dakota Ridge while you enjoy dinner and drinks.

This tax-deductible fundraiser will support the Strings in the Mountains Music festival and provide you with cherished memories of gorgeous design and beautiful music.

Now in it’s 24th season, the Strings Music Festival presents over 55 concerts throughout the months of July and August. The concerts take place in the Strings Music Pavillion and throughout the Steamboat Springs community. By attending the fundraising concert, you are doing your part to support this important community cultural event.

I hope you will you will do your part by purchasing your tax-deductible ticket online. Check back soon to learn more about our preparations for the concert at the home of John and Carrie Hayden (pictured below).

Hi, everybody – Welcome to Home on the Range’s brand-new blog!

Lynne Bier

My name is Lynne Barton Bier and I am the owner/founder of Home on the Range Interior Design and Home Furnishings. I am writing to introduce you to our new blog and also to let you know about what we can do for you to help make your home into something that’s special to you and everyone who sees it.

Having been personally involved in the home furnishing and interior design business in Steamboat Springs, CO for over twenty years, I am continually engaged, along with my design team, with a wide range of projects, ranging from minor remodels/quick makeovers to multi-year custom home projects and everything in between.

We are known for the distinctive versatility of our design styles, which include traditional Western, Mountain Contemporary and Mountain Lodge – we also aren’t afraid to blend styles to come up with that totally unique look for our clients. One of our consistent design goals is to apply our skills in tandem with our clients’ tastes to create cozy, inviting interiors that are timeless in their appeal.

Our showroom is filled with home furnishings and accessories, including unique pieces from around the world, together with antiques and high-quality upholstered furniture. We are able to commission pieces specifically to meet our clients’ needs for those special, one-of-a-kind situations that deserve custom colors, sizes and design.

Through our blog, we intend to keep you up to date on what’s new at Home on the Range, give you some fun and practical design tips as well as showcase some of the artisans who we work closely with to help create that special “Home on the Range” look. Soon, we will be adding a section to the blog for furniture and accessories — anything that’s displayed can be shipped to you for your convenience.
