Light Up Your Mood

I love using lighting to add that special statement and style to the rooms that I design. Listed below are highlights on how our Denver interior design studio uses lighting in different parts of a home.

BEDROOM

Cherry Hills Residence Master Bedroom Design

Geometric metal chandelier

This master bedroom has a neutral, earthy palette with warm wooden floors and an abstract rug. It’s a simple, clean-lined look, so I used lighting here to create a dramatic contrast to the tame design language. The geometric, metal chandelier creates a focal point and stands out in the room. At the same time, it’s a sleek piece, so it’s consistent with the room’s minimal aesthetic.

Denver Showhouse Bohemian Style Bedroom Interior Design

Edgy metallic pendant

Our studio designed the above master suite for the Denver Design Showhouse. We used natural materials and finishes with a light palette and modern furniture — the floating pendant adds an edge to the rest of the room’s soft design features.

Modern, glass chandelier

This custom chandelier weighed 200 pounds and had to be pieced together one piece at a time — there were around 200 individual pieces. The final look was well worth the effort, and it makes a breath-taking design statement. This video explains how we installed this gorgeous light fixture.

KITCHEN AND DINING

Kitchen Interior Evergreen Design

Metal pendants

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and a well-lit kitchen is essential for stylish and functional purposes. When I was planning the lighting for the above kitchen, the team had to get creative.

Challenge: We realized that there isn’t enough place between the ceiling and roof for recessed lighting.

Solution: To ensure the kitchen is lit well, we built ceiling beams and installed recessed lighting on those, while the metal pendants create the perfect ambient lighting. This video shows the complete look of the kitchen with the new beams and lights.

Floating Pendants Denver

Floating pendants

I wanted the lighting in this kitchen and breakfast nook to reflect the space’s light, fresh feel. These dainty pendants helped me achieve that — we used single pendants above the island and a cluster for the breakfast table. This video explains the entire look.

Cherry Hills Village Dining Room Design

Statement light as a room’s focal point

The minimal sophistication and clean-lined elegance of this formal dining room deserved lighting that made a style statement. I love the abstract look that this fixture adds to the room.

Artistic lights

The four floor lights and the chandelier play off each other — lighting becomes art and a conversation starter. I chose these pieces for their artistic and aesthetic value.

LIVING ROOM

Cherry Hills Village Family Room Design Denver

Modern-rustic chandelier

This living room is all about modern, farmhouse style. The double-height ceiling allowed for large windows that keep the room bathed in sunlight, and the modern-rustic chandelier complements the design language of the room perfectly.

BATHROOM

Denver Showhouse Luxe Master Bath Interior Design

Pretty pendant

This bathroom was part of the master suite that we designed for the Denver Showhouse. The look for the suite was fresh and natural, with earthy colors and a light palette. The bathroom reflects that style with its wooden cabinetry and clean-lined elegance. The dainty pendant looks pretty perched above the independent tub.

The wall lights are an ode to nature and add an interesting design element to enhance the impressive vanity.

ENTRYWAY

Castle Pines Village Entryway Design

Dramatic chandelier

This statement piece creates drama and grandeur in this foyer. It impresses at first sight. The lighting works perfectly with the high ceiling and fills the space in style.

KID’S ROOM

Cherry Hills Residence Boys Bedroom Design

Playful, geometric pendant

This quirky, wooden pendant has the right balance of playful and stylish, just like the rest of this kid’s room.

Cherry Hills Village Kids Bedroom Design

Minimal pendant

It’s basic and beautiful — a minimal light for a cozy kid’s room.
