Here’s my monthly round-up of trends and ideas floating around my Denver, Colorado Interior Design practice this month:
Color: Color is creeping back in. Although, if you’re like a lot of Colorado – it never really left (see my post here). It’s coming back in the form of kitchen cabinets and other built-ins. I’ve got a bathroom vanity being finished in a really bold Raspberry for a client, another in a dark orange and here’s a kitchen that I did late last year in Pratt and Lambert’s Noir:
Post-Apocalyptic Fiction: I’ve read different theories as to why it’s popular right now but I think for me it relates in part to how fast things move today. The internet at my fingers, my cell phone always within reach – there’s high stress that comes with all of the “convenience” and there’s a dark attractiveness to the idea that one day, for some cataclysmic reason or another, it could all stop working and we’d have to go back to the way things were.
What are you reading? I’d love some more ideas – I really need to get off the doom and gloom kick!
Heidi Annalise is another local Colorado artist I’ve been loving this summer. She’s been trying out these little miniature plein-air paintings in altoid boxes that I’ve been loving. Her Instagram account is fun and inspiring.
Do you have any local artists you want to share? I’d love to know!
