Quail + Blu - Home Design Studio Castle Rock, Colorado

I am so excited to be a part of the newest design studio in downtown Castle Rock, Colorado! I met Jen through the construction of our new home 2 years ago. Jen's husband Ryan was our general contractor and we quickly realized we had the same design aesthetic. Jen has an eye for design and unique details with a modern polished vibe you won't find at a run of the mill hardware or big box store. I love that her store is all encompassing of everything you need to refresh your home. From new lighting, hardware, cabinets, counters, tile, decor and furniture. So next time your in downtown Castle Rock be sure to stop in and check out all she has to offer!

Furniture Refinishing and Interior Design Projects Denver, Colorado April 30-May 6

This week I am just wrapping a really fun furniture refinishing project for a clients daughter. She is redoing her bedroom and the colors she has chosen are so fun and unique for a girl! Think lots of mint, teal, navy, hot pink and gold! Here are the room renderings:

Traditionally navy wouldn't be a color popular for a girls room but I think with the pops of contrasting colors it is adorable and modern! Here is one of the nightstands I have completed for it:

Another fun project I worked on this week is a sink vanity! The sink that will be set inside is copper so she wanted a dark charcoal base with copper hardware. I love the mixture of these two finishes. Here is how it turned out:

Lastly I worked on one of my own inventory items. I loved this console table because it was two tier so lots of storage and the French style detailing on the legs is so beautiful. This item is for sale and you can view it here:

Furniture Refinishing Projects April 16th-April 22nd Denver, Colorado

As much as I love refinishing pieces that clients bring to me I also love being able to have the freedom to work on pieces I keep in inventory! I try to go shopping weekly so I have fresh inventory but with so many custom orders I haven't had time so Ive been working on pieces I have had in my stash! Here are a few of the designs from this week!

1. Burlap and distressed bench with lift top lid- SOLD

2. French Provincial White Washed Coffee Table (available)- $275

3. Tall Trellis Patterned Gray and White Side Table- SOLD

Inbetween these projects here are two custom client orders. Love how this chair and jewelry armoire turned out! The chair is for a clients desk and the lavender jewelry armoire just needed an updated look. I don't usually do a lot of lavender pieces so it was fun to do something different. My client liked the look of {this} piece so much she had hers refinished similarly with raised 3D stenciling on the swing doors.

Until next week! - Vanessa

Nursery and Kids Furniture Denver, Colorado - Nursery and Kids Interior Room Design

Some of my favorite furniture pieces to do are custom orders for kids rooms and nurseries! I love it because A) it usually involves bold color and B) clients are more inclined to go outside the box and get creative with it! It is so fun for me to be involved in these client projects because I get a peak into their lives. I get to learn about their little ones, come up with a creative design and deliver a truly unique one of a kind piece for their spaces! Here are just a few examples of some of the fun designs I have had the pleasure of doing over the last few years! -Vanessa

Custom Painted Furniture Projects - February 12-18th Denver, Colorado

Great week completing some personal projects as well as client pieces! First up was a kids table and chairs set. This desk was a vintage solid wood table from the Denver Public Schools and I knew it would be perfect as a farmhouse style kids set. I sanded and re-stained the tops with slightly distressed white bases. I purchased a set of bar stools that I had my husband cut down to size and it paired so cute with it!

Next up was a nightstand revamp. I love repeat customers and this client had purchased a nightstand a few years ago for her older daughter so she came back to have another done for her littlest! She wanted something fun but that she could grow with so I suggested a neutral palette with stenciled variation drawers. She loved it and it fits perfect in her pre-teen room.

My third project was a set of French provincial end tables. I had this set in inventory for a while but wasn't sure what color I wanted to do. I felt inspired with the clean, simplistic farmhouse style and chose to do antique style cup pulls in oil rubbed bronze. I love the way the white made the ornate details pop!

Lastly, was a rustic iron and metal wall art piece. Funny story about this was the metal scroll work came from a coffee table that a friend and I accidentally broke the glass on. I don't know what we were thinking when we decided to lean the huge piece of glass against her truck on a windy day. Needless to say the glass shattered but we took the scroll piece out, painted it turquoise and mounted it on barn wood remnants I had from a accent wall project I did in my house. It turned out so cool! The client that purchased it is actually going to use it as a headboard for her teen daughters room, which I thought was such a unique idea!  -Vanessa
