In a post a few weeks ago, I told you guys about a bunkhouse that we are currently working on outside of Estes Park, CO.  It has been so much fun to come up with ideas for the different rooms, and ways to keep each room funky and unique.  To go along with the bunkhouse style, we are doing a lot of built in bunks and cabinets with different kinds of reclaimed wood.  Since I have bunkhouses on the brain, I thought it would be fun to share some of our different inspiration pictures, along with some other bunkhouse pictures that we aren’t using for this job, but are still pretty neat!

 

This bunk room is dark, but seems very “lodgy” and comfortable!

I love the curtain and the reclaimed wood in this little bunk nook!

This is an incredibly rustic bunk room!  The big logs are beautiful!

Look!  This room is covered in canvas!  I absolutely love the feel that all of these elements create!

 

The natural trunks and branches add so much to this room, they really help it feel like it’s a part of nature, and look great with the beams!

 The light wood and fur throws make this look like a very classy bunk room!

This room is so cute!  I love how the beds are tucked away in the corners of the room.

This is a big bunk room!  It has a sink and everything!

 

I love the mix of the chinked timber and metal ladders in this room, and the rug on the floor is really pretty too!

Welcome to our third post on color inspiration!  In the last few weeks, we have talked about the colors green and blue, their different shades and meanings, and how to use them in different places. Today, we are going to talk about my own personal favorite color: red.  We love love love using red, because it has so many facets and hues, and also because it seems to make everything it touches just super warm and cozy!  Red is used everywhere, you can find it in every style, culture and location.

Because we love red so much, we thought we would share today how we have used the color in our own projects!

 

In these ski area homes, we used sparing pops of red to draw you into the room, and to hold the warmth in the winter months when the snow is blowing (like you can see out the window in this first picture!)

We love to use reclaimed wood and old barn wood in our projects.  These next three images show how subtly red can be presented with the use of distressed barn wood.  The first picture also shows how bolder reds can be incorporated by adding accessories like towels and washcloths!

Bathrooms can also be a great place for reds.  You can see in these bathrooms that the shades we chose are very different from the reds you have seen so far (they are closer in hue to orange, but still provide the red “warmth” that we love).  Powder rooms are a good place to use the dark reds and the bold, bright reds, while master baths and guest baths are better places for a more relaxed tone.

Finally, dining areas are a fantastic place to use reds.  We love using red in dining rooms and kitchens because of the cozy quality that it creates.  Warm reds in these rooms make you just want to sit down and chat and stay a while!

Last week we began a journey into the world of color.  We started with the color green, and shared some unique images of different shades and styles of the same color.

This week, we’re going to move on to the color blue.  Blue is both beautiful and tricky.  It can be very serene and comforting, and it can also be cold.  Cool colors work well in warm areas, but in areas where it is cold, snowy and white for a good portion of the year, blue can often seem cold and stark.  That doesn’t mean that it can’t work though!  We just have to be a little bit more careful in the mountains in how we incorporate blue into our design.  There are a few different tricks for incorporating different styles of blue into cold-weather design, and they can make any blue room warm and inviting.

First, blue occurs in nature all the time.  Since we live in the mountains, using local, natural blues can help keep a more comfortable feel year round.

Next, using only a POP of a bright blue here and there can be much more effective than painting walls blue, or using the color in large areas.  A small pop actually provides a fun and bold aspect, rather than an overall cold feeling.

Finally, incorporating blue with other warm colors is the best way to keep warm in the cold months.  Rather than using blue and white, try blue and cream, blue and ivory, or blue and almost any other warm color (we have a lot of Broncos fans around here who are proud supporters of blue and orange, but we don’t necessarily suggest that in your home color scheme!)

 

These are only a few of the ways to incorporate the color blue into your space, and many of them depend greatly on what type of environment your space exists in.  Where is the color blue in your home?  Share with us on Facebook!  Or, you can also follow us on Pinterest!  Next week’s color is red (my favorite!) so make sure and stop by!

I have a very strong love for nature in design.  More than anything, I love rooms that take the outdoors and bring them in.  Where the boundary between interior and exterior is blurred, and you can visit the wilderness from the comfort of your own home.  Bringing nature into the home can be achieved in many ways, but today I want to share some beautiful spaces where people have literally broken down the barriers that separate us from the wild.

 

This bathroom looks and feels like it is part of the woods that live outside.  I love how they used natural materials and colors that mirror the forest outside the window!  The log column and bamboo wall are great accents here.

This room isn’t actually a room, it really is outside, but I still love it!  This is the porch of a treehouse in France built by a helicopter pilot and his son, and the small cabin fits perfectly into its surroundings.

If I had a dining area like this, I don’t think I would ever go anywhere else!  I love how the walls are open floor to ceiling, creating the feeling of being completely outdoors, while the ceiling provides protection and the reminder that you are still in a dining room!

This little room looks so warm and comfortable.  Would be a perfect summer escape!

This bathroom really is half in, half out!  I absolutely love that there are plants and vines growing up through the floor and walls.  Tropical!

This room brings nature in without being completely exposed.  I really like the stacked log wall, and the opening in the center for the sun to shine through!

This porch looks like the perfect spot to snuggle up and watch the snow fall!

This last image might be my favorite.  In this house, there is nothing between you and nature!

We love color.  Color drives the world and how we see it.  No one sees color in the same way, but nevertheless every color has some sort of strong significance to every single person in the world.  It’s amazing!  In interior design, we’re lucky to get to work with color on a daily basis.  We get to study it, enjoy it, and more interestingly, we get to learn how each of our clients view color in their own way.

This love of color has spurred us to start a series on color in design.  We will dedicate a post each week to a different color, and share some pictures that speak to and inspire us about each of them.

This week’s color is green!  Green is an easy color to talk about, especially where we live.  We have green leaves, green needles, green grass, green pastures, green rivers, green pastures, green everything!  For a while, it was a little bit harder to find green indoors, as the color had fallen out of favor in the design mainstream.  Thankfully though, we are watching it’s return, and in bold fashion!

Think of different shades of green, what do you see?  A cozy lodge fireplace room, a peeling farmhouse hutch, a wilderness walk, a velvet upholstered chair in the hunt club?  Something else entirely?  That is what is so beautiful about color, we can make it our own.

We would like to share some beautiful images of green, each very different in style and presence, but that all still embody one specific color.

Let’s take a little trip today, shall we?  Around the world perhaps?  To a place buried in the sand, but steeped in culture and history.  A place where the landscape is stark, but the people are colorful and so are their creations.  Where nomads wander and converge and deal and trade. Let’s take a trip to Morocco.

 

Colors, textures and pattern are all integral pieces of Moroccan design.  Glass, ceramic, textile, wood, paint, dye, metal, and leather are all incorporated in these creations, and the more colors the better!

Moroccan textiles are absolutely gorgeous.  They are known for their rugs, pillows, poufs and tapestries.

Color doesn’t always characterize Moroccan style though, sometimes it is pure and white, fresh and inviting.  Exactly what you crave when you’re in the Sahara desert!

I love the mix of materials in these poufs, look at the seashells inlaid into the tops of some of them!  Beads and sequins are often hand sewn onto these beauties.

Lights and lanterns are also well known items in Moroccan design.  They are generally made from glass and metal, and are all different shapes and sizes.  Aren’t they beautiful?

Inlaid furniture and mirrors are another characteristic element of Moroccan style.  Traditionally done by hand, these pieces are always stunning and one of a kind!
