From Concept to Completion: A Tour of a New Home Construction

It is never too early to bring an interior designer onto a project- especially when your project is a new home construction.

I was brought in during the early stages of this new construction in Denver’s Observatory Park and feel thankful that I was able to contribute so much to the outcome. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights of the project:

EXTERIOR & ENTRANCES

Exterior Entrances

Home EntranceThe home greets you with a red brick facade and a black tile roof. The framed front entrance with pillars creates a portico, and a white beamed pergola defines the back patio. Including a mudroom is a great way to keep dirt from shoes from going all over the house. We equipped the mudroom with abundant storage with shelves, drawers, and wall hooks.

Entry Design Observatory Park

We designed a classy entryway with a bold gray patterned wallpaper. A metal framed glass console and wooden ledge mirror were placed against the wallpaper. We also highlighted a statement art piece in black and gold with a shimmery frame. We used wood paneled flooring for the entire home.

KITCHEN AND DINING

Kitchen And Dining Design Observatory Park

Kitchen Breakfast Nook Design

The client wanted the kitchen as the centerpiece of the house. The open concept kitchen has a timeless white kitchen island that is juxtaposed with dark shaker-style wood cabinets and appliances accented with stainless steel. A marble tile backsplash complements the countertop. Highlighted with industrial pendant lights, the island is equipped with upholstered bar stool seating for a quick breakfast or some great conversation. Adjacent to the kitchen, we created a cute breakfast nook with a white pedestal table and fun Chartreuse chairs.

Elegant Dining Design

The main dining area features a more elegant setting. A dark wood dining table paired with highback upholstered chairs is set on a gray-brown patterned rug. The space is brought together with pendant lighting, a soft brown patterned wall, and modern art.

LIVING ROOM

Minimalistic Living Room Design

For the living room, we went with open, minimalistic, classy, and functional. A warm color palette makes the room inviting, especially for a family-friendly setting. A unique vein-cut silver travertine stone is showcased on the fireplace for a striking accent piece. The dark wood mantel features another attractive showpiece in gold. We chose contemporary furnishings including a patterned rug, mid-century modern sofa, highback single seaters upholstered in velvety fabric, and metal-framed cushioned single seaters. A wood coffee table is a central element, while side tables have been added on to display decorative items and personal pictures.

MASTER BED AND BATHROOM

Master Bed Bathroom Open Wardrobe Design

We kept the master bedroom clutter-free and simple, perfect for peaceful repose. The walls are kept a soft neutral shade, while the upholstered bed features a deep brown. Twin metallic lamps adorn the wood side tables. The bed is set on a chic shaggy rug. We introduced a low laid back chair in a corner for the clients to enjoy a good book. The space is highlighted with an attractive pendant light. The bedroom features a walk-in closet with ample storage for the couple’s clothes, accessories, and shoes.

Striking Master Bathroom Design

We designed their master bath to reflect the client’s preference for a clean, classic style. We used white cabinets and marble countertops, as the look will never go out of style. For a striking contrast, we added an interesting touch with modern vessel sinks that highlight their eclectic personality. While the soft color palette accentuates the sophistication of the space, the rich metallic of the mirror makes the space stylish. The luxurious standalone bathtub with a patterned gray-beige accent wall in the background is the room’s focal point.

KIDS SPACE

Kids Bedroom Design Observatory Park

The kids’ bedroom is designed around their fun personality. Shared by two boys, we gave the room a soft blue and white color palette. We designed the room for the kids to have fun, play, and hang out while at the same time keeping it easy to organize and stay orderly.

HOME OFFICE

Home Office Design

With custom-built cabinetry, we designed this home office to provide plenty of space for the client to showcase their love for travel, art, and books.

BASEMENT AREA

Basement Area Design

We modified the basement to create living and entertaining areas including a living room, a bar, a bedroom with an attached bath, and a gym.

We used a combination of soft and deep browns in the brown-themed living room that features a stone clad fireplace and a home entertainment system complete with an overhead projector. An open plan connects the living room to the bar which has dark wood cabinetry, modern pendant lights, and metal toned high chaired seating.

Basement Bedroom Bathroom Design

The carpeted bedroom and attached bathroom feature a similar color palette of brown tones.
