When a couple moved into the former home of a beloved aunt, who had recently passed away, they sought to simultaneously honor her memory and make the space their own. In a dramatic remodel of the interior and exterior, including an inviting new deck, we updated the home to reflect a cozy modern aesthetic with a rustic twist, while also keeping their aunt’s spirit alive.

“To honor the wishes of a deceased aunt and uncle, we kept their home in the family by buying it. It was outdated and over furnished with 70 years of accumulations. Through an insightful Home Style and Comfort Assessment, Bethany helped us make this home our own. She transformed the dark Tuscany-inspired interior into a light and open Cozy Modern Farmhouse with a twist of Rustic. Our new furniture looks great and is so comfortable. She helped us create new areas to spend our time, like the master bedroom sitting space for morning coffee or to read a book. From our great room, we now enjoy an inspiring view of Pike’s Peak, thanks to the 30 feet of windows she had installed. Throughout this three-month project, Bethany was positive and optimistic. When hiccups occurred, she always had a solution. The big reveal was fun and exciting and exceeded our expectations. We never imagined the beauty we get to live in.”

Thanks to a total gut, we were able to transform the kitchen from dark and dreary to a cheerful oasis. The custom hood, made to match the island, brings in a welcome splash of color, while under-cabinet lighting throughout adds warmth and dimension. 

The new and improved dining room feels fresh and uncluttered, while also reflecting the clients’ passion for wine. Open shelves display their aunt’s treasured wine glass collection, along with a huge wine glass containing past corks. A wall display provides easy access to their favorite vintages.

To create a beautiful sense of arrival, we opened up the entryway and brought in more light by way of the windows and palette, with a well-lit coat station—plus a hint of color and texture.

For the master bedroom, we closed off an unused deck, refreshed the room’s palette, and created a serene seating area overlooking the windows. 

We met our biggest design challenge here (one we were excited to take on!). The client’s aunt had inherited blocks of cathedral glass from the AirForce Academy, her alma mater, and incorporated them into the shower and tub areas. The clients wanted to preserve the original glass, while also making the space feel fresh. Leaving the glass untouched, we added up-to-date fixtures, a clean new vanity, and a warmer palette. 

Continuing the theme of opening things up, we removed a huge central fireplace wall and a corner bar to integrate the family room with the dining area and kitchen. In addition to lightening the palette, we installed a sleek new fireplace, which also happens to be more energy-efficient, shelving for extra storage, and special new lights for a soft glow. The clients love entertaining and watching TV, so we made sure they had plenty of chic space for lounging.
