Today we’re super excited to share a recently completed remodel project by Lisa Berry, one of the designers here at Home on the Range.  While they’re often the most difficult, remodels can also be the most rewarding type of design project because you get to see and be a part of an amazing transformation.  In this project, Lisa started out with a tired looking mudroom/billiard room and an unfinished garage.

 With that space she created a fresh and light “welcome room”,

a luxuriously lodge-y wine bar,

and a cozy cabin tv room that everyone in the family now enjoys.

One neat thing about remodels is they way that they evolve and change throughout the whole process.  According to Lisa, the original idea for the transformation of the space was to create a dedicated mudroom, and to use the rest of the square footage from the garage to add space to the “man-cave” and bar.

From the cave idea, the style grew into a look that is true to our Colorado roots.  Lisa said “throughout the design process, decisions were made to try and make the new space not look like an addition, but an actual old miner’s shack that the new house was built upon.”  So cool!

If you look closely, you can see the design elements that really helped this rustic space to come into its own.  Rustic-industrial Troy pendants over the bar are mirrored in sconces throughout the rooms.

Stone peeks through the plaster on one wall, and is carried through the tv area on a western built in bench, which is then met by a chinked timber (one of my faves!) wall on the bar side.  The chinked timber, as well as reclaimed wood accents and pops of red here and there transition the welcome room flawlessly into the bar, and on to the tv area. Western accessories peek through here and there for an overall feel that is just so natural.

The arched doorways welcome in a subtle uniqueness that sets this space apart from any other rustic space we’ve seen before.

Rustic weddings are all the rage right now, and we have a Home on the Range wedding of our own coming up!  It’s so fun to see how different interior decor items can be creatively incorporated into a rustic ranch-style wedding, and there doesn’t seem to be any end to what we can use!  All of our rustic decor fits right in, and today we wanted to share how we are getting creative and using different pieces that we have in stock to create the perfect rugged-elegant wedding celebration!

Flowing white or off white sheer fabric is a fantastic way to add elegance and class to your rustic setting- these drapes around the entry to the barn are beautiful!

Logs and tree slices are so popular in every type of rustic design right now!  We have birch poles, aspen slices, and slate and log cake stands all in stock!

Rustic chairs are a great way to bring in flair and add to the rugged look- even if you just use them for the bride and groom or wedding party table, they will be sure to make a statement!

Any kind of old bucket or container can find a lovely new home in a rustic or ranch wedding- we have seen everything from galvanized buckets, to baby bathtubs, to old wagons, to horse troughs used to hold flowers and drinks at rustic weddings!

Here is a great example of how to bring different elements together to create a look that is both rustic, and at the same time completely put-together.  How beautiful is this?!

Barrels are another favorite of ours right now- I adore the setup of this table, with the mirror, live edge plank and old wine barrels creating that rugged elegant look that we love so much!  Also love the stone backdrop here.

These birch buckets (also in stock at the showroom!) are the cutest idea for a flower girl basket.  Love how the couple’s initials were wood burned onto this one for a more personal look!

For a small town, Steamboat Springs sure has a lot of amazing artists, craftsmen, and talented people in general.  We are so lucky to get to work with so many creative and interesting folks, and would love to share some of their work with you too!

Doug Kenyon of Douglas Kenyon Collection here in Steamboat is a great example of talent, creativity and Western style.  His large scale reproductions and hand coloring of centuries-old photographs and engravings are absolutely stunning, and the process that he goes through to create them is fascinating!  I recently visited his downtown gallery and was treated to a personal tour of his collection, as well as a look into the history and story of many of the individual pieces themselves.  What I learned was amazing.

With a background in both painting and photography, Douglas Kenyon began his career in photo restoration when he was on a trip through Montana in 1970.  He came across the estate sale of L.A. Huffman, a photographer who captured the beauty, danger and culture of the American West in the late 1800s, and Douglas, realizing the value of what he had before him, purchased the entire photographic estate.  With his knowledge of art and nature and his eye for color, he began restoring each photo in a caring and time consuming process of by-hand recoloring.

Over time, Doug sought out and acquired the rights to more and more iconic photographs, with subjects ranging from all aspects of frontier life, to historic documents, to the original engravings of John James Audubon.  All of these works are on display in his Steamboat gallery, and each has its own special meaning and significance.  I personally loved them all for different reasons, but I think my favorite that I saw on my visit to Douglas Kenyon Collection was “The Two Bills”- a panorama of the crew of a travelling rodeo show, complete with Buffalo Bill himself, as well as (if I can remember correctly from our conversation), 200+ other performers in costume.  Mr. Kenyon blew this original image up to massive proportion, and then hand colored and detailed each individual face and outfit.  It’s amazing!

Another beautiful style of work that Douglas prides himself on is the updating of “gold tone” photographs.  From the DKC website:”An Orotone or Gold Tone is just one of many types of photographic prints which can be produced from a negative.  A gold tone is created by printing the positive image on a glass plate pre-coated with silver gelatin emulsion.  Following exposure and development, the emulsion is coated with banana oil infused with cold-colored pigment, yielding a gold tone image.”  The result of this process is a deep, warm, and inviting photograph that is completely unique in it’s style.  Here’s one of my favorites from Mr. Kenyon’s collection:

Doug has called the Yampa Valley home for over 20 years, and is a well known and respected member of the art community, as well as the larger community as a whole.  I was thrilled to tour his gallery and to learn so much about his process.  His love for what he does shows through in his work, and in his excitement about sharing it with others.  When you find yourself in downtown Steamboat Springs, the Douglas Kenyon Collection is a necessary stop!  Click here to visit the DKC website and see more of the Old West coming back to life!

We love being featured on Houzz!  It’s always such an honor to see our work featured on one of our favorite sites, and they always have such interesting articles to go along with the pictures!  This is a fantastic article about straw-bale construction and all the things you can do with it.  If the slides aren’t showing up for you (they aren’t for me), you can click the link above the slideshow to go directly to the article. Well worth the read!

Can you read the title of this post?  It’s okay if you can’t, I just made it up.  I combined the words rustic and eclectic because I thought it best defined one of my very favorite styles of design.  Rusticlectic spaces are beautiful and unique, and no two are alike because the combination of design and materials are so unique and personal.

There is nothing that particularly classifies a “rusticlectic” space, but you will know one when you see it.  They can be colorful, or neutral.  They can be bold or subtle.  One thing that they do all have is a glorious mix of materials.  These spaces can mix rustic, modern, cabin, contemporary, southwest, cottage, minimalist, lodge, shabby, chic, bohemian, you name it.   Are you still wondering what a rusticlectic room might look like?  Here are some of my favorite examples!

 

What this room lacks in color, it makes up for in style!  It mixes western cow skulls and laced leather pillows with a more western contemporary sheepskin throw and burlap barrel shades, with a native throw pillow, a bohemian woven swing, and to top it off a farmhouse crocheted quilt!  Beautiful!

This space is a prime example of mixing materials.  I love the layered rugs (though they’re not for everyone they can look beautiful in the right space!), and the mismatched chairs- it’s neat how the chairs are the same style but with different finishes.  The white brick on the wall helps to lighten the room and add another textural dimension!

Here are some “rusticlectic” soft goods- colorful and cultural with a rustic feel

Here’s another room without a lot of color that still packs a big punch.  The reclaimed wood with the whitewashed ceilings and walls is a great contrast.  Here we see fur, fair isle, and Suzani-ish patterns come together with a rustic industrial twist.  Love it!

This room is a little bit more on the shabby side of chic than I normally prefer, but I love the concept!  Barnwood, colorful prints, and a bold rug look great, and so does the “photo wall”!

Here is a beautiful rusticlectic room!  I love the colors and the canopy mixed with the rustic shutters and reclaimed accents- it looks like an old gypsy caravan built right into the house!

This room combines almost everything that rusticlectic has to offer!  Modern lines on the furniture transition to ethnic prints scattered throughout.  The woodburning fireplace, leather pillows and reclaimed floor help to drive home the rustic aspects of this living room, and the whitewashed wood walls and ceiling provide a cozy cottage feel!  I bet each accessory has it’s own special story!

Guess what?  We are currently help renovate and remodel an old bunk house near Estes Park, CO!  The house is super funky, crazy and unique.  It began as one very small building that was a livery (where animals are kept and boarded) years and years and years ago.  From there, new rooms were added one by one, so each room is on its own level, with its own ceiling height, and it’s own shape and angle!  It’s crazy!  But so much fun to work on- we get to come up with ideas to update the bunk house, while at the same time keeping it funky and historical.  Here are some of the design inspirations we’re using!

You may remember when we did a post a while back about using Google Sketchup for design and construction concepts.  Well, today I wanted to share something VERY exciting with you.  One of the rooms that we put in Sketchup to help our client visualize the space and make decisions on finishes is now on its way to completion.  I received a photo of it the other day, and I was floored at how amazingly similar it looked to our Sketchup rendering.  Take a look below!

This is the original image as it was built in Sketchup- we used the program to build this room from the plans to help choose finishes, furniture and accessories.

This is a photorealistic rendering that we did of the original image to make it more realistic and help our client visualize how it was really going to look:

Our client approved the finishes, wood, etc, and the building and installing began.  This is a photo of the progress of the room so far:

Isn’t that amazing?  Remember, in the first and second images, the room in the third photo was not in existence!  The first two images are 100% computer generated.  This really goes to show how far technology and design have come, and the possibilities of how far we can go with tools like this are endless!  Just thought I would share!

Can you believe that it’s already Thanksgiving-eve?  Where has 2013 gone?  Even though it seems like the time has flown, we have so much to be thankful for this year.

We are thankful for our our clients, we have the best clients in the world!

We are thankful for each other.  Working with people who care about each other and what they do makes for a joyful job!

We are thankful for our design projects.  They keep us busy all the time and bring us to new and interesting places.

We are thankful to be able to live and work in a place as beautiful as Steamboat!

We are thankful for everyone who supports Home on the Range online and locally, you guys keep us going!  Thank you!

 

We have been busy bees this year with projects and events all over the country, and are ready to settle into the holidays!  If you, like us, have been running around like mad lately, you may be looking for some last minute decor ideas to add that extra little something to your Turkey Day celebration.  Look no further!  Today we have compiled a collection of ideas that will truly make yours a thankful table.

 

The Place Setting: Whether you plan on hosting 30 people or 4 people this Thanksgiving, it’s the presentation that makes all the difference.  The smallest details can leave a lasting impression.  Here are some great ideas for place settings, menus, and seating cards that are elegant, simple and perfectly seasonal!

The Sideboard:  Chances are, you will be employing a sideboard, buffet, or table of some kind to house your delicious feast.  Make it beautiful!  Adding color, height, and layers will really make it stand out and become a focal piece of the celebration, rather than just a stand to hold your food.

The Table:  Finally, let’s talk table!  Once again, it’s the little things that count here.  Hunt for natural items to include in your centerpiece.  Use placemats or chargers to add color or texture.  Incorporate candles and candle holders of all different shapes and sizes.  Bring out your best china.  It’s time to eat!
