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!

This week I was able to complete the bedroom set I've been working on over the last few weeks. The king sized bed was the last project out of the set and it turned out amazing! The color on all the pieces was a custom gray that I mixed myself and black antiquing. My client also sent me a picture of the finished products all set up in her room!
Another fun project from this week was a custom teal corner hutch. My client brought mercury glass knobs to swap out the outdated hardware. I did a very light antiquing wash over the teal and lightly distressed. I love how it turned out!
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter! Until next week! -Vanessa
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
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
Over the last two weeks we have received shipment of our new furniture line! These pieces are awesome! So I guess I should explain why I decided to introduce a new line of furniture to my current offerings.... With vintage and antique furniture I was finding I was limited in offerings. I often times have clients looking for full living room, dining room and whole house looks! In addition, this line offers a lot of really cool rustic and industrial furniture that I would not be able to find or replicate with vintage/antique furniture. My husband and I had been searching for over a year trying to find the right distributor to work with. We wanted to introduce a line that was not only modern but had the quality our customers have come to expect. I have to say the furniture has exceeded our expectations and with this new line we are able to offer superior quality at affordable prices! We essentially cut out the middle man that large retailers charge- you the customer for either their warehouses, shipping, show rooms, staff, etc. We are a small operation and each piece is special order, however we have ordered some of our most popular pieces so clients can see, touch and feel some of the new line. We are a local husband and wife team based out of Castle Rock, CO with access to over 3,000 pieces of furniture. With the amount of furniture pieces available we only have a small fraction displayed on our website, however we can help create a custom look for any space with design consults. Design consults are free and allow us to curate a look based on your space, budget and design. So if you are not finding the quality, customer experience or look at big box retailers I hope you will give us a try! Below are the pieces we received this week.
