We removed the existing walls in the kitchen to open up the space to the living area. We kept the existing cabinets but added to hardware to freshen it up. We replaced the countertop with a quartzite countertop. The new ceiling fan carries out the condos aviation theme.
– This client was a former pilot so to personalize this space we took an aviation theme. We found two aviator chairs and aviator trunk as a side table, and added the floor spotlight . We removed the white paint on the fireplace to give it a used brick look, removed the brick hearth and replaced that with a new concrete hearth. The new mantle was custom made to look like an airplane wing. The carpeting was replaced with a rubber wood looking floor and the window trim went from stain to a fresh painted white. The new coffee table has cut glass, and we put down a shag rug to warm up the space.
The contemporary five-panel frosted glass door leads to an entirely remodeled lower level. We used back-lit frosted art glass with LED lighting to separate the exercise room from the stairway. A custom-made iron handrail, and wall sconce complete the space. This lower level remodel project includes this main room with wet bar and game room. Custom-made chenille sectional and two chairs, rosewood task tables, gas fireplace, coffered ceiling with triple recessed cans and LED lighting, custom built in cabinets with sapele wood and frosted glass, exotic Mozambique wood coffee table. Includes game table and four chairs. The second view of the lower level remodeled main room shows the coffered ceiling, custom built-in shelving out of sapele wood with frosted glass and LED lighting to highlight the glass art. We also added a contemporary gas fireplace. The built-in wet bar has a quartzite counter, wood bar stools, high pressure textured laminate cabinets, pendant lighting, sub-zero glass front refrigerator. Photographs by Paul Kohlman.
We recently partnered with Sikora Creations to complete this beautiful living room remodel. Eliminating the archways clearly opened up the space; the kitchen now has direct access to the stairway. The redesigned fireplace removed the curve, and is modernized with a sandstone hearth and mantle. We also added travertine floors, LED lighting, and a beautiful new fan. Speas Interior Design chose unique furnishings and beautiful earth tone fabrics to complete the space.
Another view of our latest living room remodel done in partnership with Sikora Creations, illustrates how removing the dated archways on the main level modernized the space. Notice the new window opening to the master bedroom and entryway into the basement. The hand-textured the walls, and sconse light fixtures and new furnishings complete the space.

This Arts and Crafts design includes (our favorite) telluride stone fireplace, pine and iron fireplace mantle, Fanamation Fan on a pine veneer beam, faux finish walls, custom furniture, caramelized bamboo floors, and built in shelves for art and collectibles.
Old world meets new world as a custom TV cabinet above fireplace hides a flat panel TV and speakers under custom planked shutters. The room is completed with faux wall finish of brick veneer with a clay finish and soft window treatments designed by Kathy Speas.
With custom crafted furniture, custom designed artwork over the fireplace, Telluride stone columns and walnut floors, the interior design of this new construction living room is warm and inviting.

Specialty spaces can present a unique design challenge to have their individuality while maintaining a cohesive flow with the remainder of the room. This small space was designed as an intimate gathering area outside of the wine cellar of this custom home. Space highlights include comfy seating, a custom copper coffee table, Telluride stone columns and energy efficient pendant lighting.
This Contemporary Colorado family room achieves its goal of bringing the outdoors in with solid pine and iron beams, dry stacked (no mortar) Telluride stone fireplace with a custom concrete and iron mantle and hearth, hand scraped hickory floors, Sun Mountain knotty Alder doors, and custom Anderson sliding doors with cherry surround to maximize the views. The non-focal, focal point of this room is the custom fabricated TV lift that with the push of a button lowers or raises the TV from the ceiling.
