Houzz Tour: Eclectic and Colorful at Colorado

The most comfortable homes are. Even the most extreme fans of minimalism can admit it’s difficult to imagine that a cozy night in whenever your living room is a pristine airplane of white and black. In this Cherry Hills Village, Colorado house, designer Andrea Schumacher decided to focus her layout on her clients’ collection of antiques and art. “It turned into a really great mix of old meets new,” Schumacher says. “There’s colorful art, elegant antiques, and accessories that are complex”

Schumacher worked with the architects to utilize materials and styles that could blend with the interior layout. “The clients love that eclectic, traveled appearance,” says Schumacher. “Since many of the pieces in the house were their very own, it already had that almost-Old-World appearance.”

The living room color palette was based on the blue, blue, orange and green hues of the custom drapery. After falling in love with the fabric, Schumacher and her customer made a decision to base the remainder of the living room around this natural looking cloth.

Two couches and many armchairs give ample seating for your family members and guests. Since living room is so big, finding a coffee table that would marry the space with the couches and armchairs was a challenge. In the last minute, they found a large enough table out of a luxury furniture store in New York.

Schumacher wanted the layout to focus on the homeowners’ antique furniture and artwork collection. Inside this pub and lounge area next to the entryway, she created a welcoming space for guests using a customized bar and beautifully worn leather sofa.

Though its design is bold, the dining room is actually an extremely informal space. Schumacher and her clients purposely designed this distance as a location where the family can just hang out, without being holed up inside their own rooms.

Schumacher Lay a bench in a classic David Hicks pattern for cozy seating on one side of the table, and employed two of their clients’ arm seats at both end. Other seats among those homeowners found were painted an excellent burgundy for more seating.

The clients understood right off the bat that they didn’t want their house to have yet another kitchen that was striped. Although some of the cabinetry is white and white Calcutta marble was installed on the countertops and stove backsplash, Schumacher decided to use the island and wall space to implement bold color. The background is a habit, hand-painted job of art from Stark. It took nearly a year for Schumacher to get the background, which was hand-painted on silk in China.

Following the background was installed, Schumacher had it coated with Proseal, which allows the background to act as a backsplash. “It is possible to throw off at it and it is going to wash right off,” she says.

The wood used for your island counter tops will patina beautifully with usage. Dark wood floors draw the attention into the habit white cabinetry and built in refrigerator. Schumacher made a decision to utilize traditional-style chandeliers to your island lighting, which adds a great eclectic touch.

This comfy library and media room is just one of those homeowners’ favorite rooms. Most of the furniture belonged to them already, which gives the room a comfortable, broken-in feel. The soft lighting and plush carpeting make it the ideal space to watch films or curl up with a novel on the soft leather chaise.

The soothing and comfortable master bedroom is a great example of Schumacher’s go-to color palette. “My style typically starts with a neutral backdrop,” she says. “I then like to accessorize with pops of color in the artwork and fabrics.”

A mid-century vanity was chosen for one of the property’s powder rooms. Schumacher used a bold lattice-like background in a neutral white and charcoal palette to accent the walls. Just like a lot of the house, this room doesn’t automatically have a look that “goes together,” but it works in a really unique and personal manner.

Both of the clients love to travel, so many facets of the house were motivated by their favorite destinations. Moroccan-shaped tiles line the shower in the master bath. Although the floors are radiant heated, a lush rug gives the room a lived-in feel.

A luxurious freestanding bathtub stands at the opposite end of the master bath. Blue, Morrocan-like draperies counter exactly the exact same honey coloured grasscloth employed from the living room. The fireplace makes this place the ideal place to unwind a crisp fall day, and the oyster surround adds an extra high-end touch.
