This Vail Valley home was designed as a getaway for a Florida couple and their family by Worth Interiors, located at Beaver Creek, in Avon, Colorado. The home is situated so perfectly that the couple can stand on their terrace and watch the skiers come down the slopes of the Beaver Creek Resort. In addition to their stellar views, they also enjoy the generous proportions of the rambling house that was previously remodeled by architect Eric Johnson. The house had a lot of dark wood, so in the brief the clients requested a design scheme that was lighter and brighter and more in keeping with who they are. They wanted to push the envelope and go as contemporary as they could within the building envelope. The designer employed unexpected materials such as grass cloth in the bathroom to embroidered vinyl in the guest room and a silver metallic sheen in the living room. There are also other unexpected uses of materials found throughout the home such as cowhide, which has given the home a unique modern twist. Trying to still be respectful to the location and architecture, the designer employed lots of wood and stone to still give that authentic western feel.
The designers salvaged a lot of the original structures materials and re-incorporating it into the design scheme, nearly doubling the size of the home. The exterior of the home increased with an additional 2,000 square feet of outdoor living spaces. The home has three spacious bedrooms with en-suite spa bathrooms, with the master retreat having a personal deck enclosed by a privacy fence and a wonderful hot tub to really take full advantage of the outdoors.
In the spacious living room, tactile materials were selected for the space to play off the stone clad walls. A cowhide rug delineates the space and adds warmth mixed with the leather furnishings and tufted ottomans.
To give the kitchen a contemporary vibe, the kitchen island was given a black stain to compliment the existing granite countertops. Honed black granite was selected for the countertops that spans the wall of the kitchen. A beautiful hand-forged chandelier comprised of burlap and leather lacing makes a beautiful focal point to the space and creates great task lighting for working on the kitchen island.
A cozy sitting area in the master suite features a sectional for curling up to read a book. The area rug add warmth to the space as well as a great punch of color and pattern.
The master bedroom features an opulent custom wall panel comprised of leather, chrome and lacquer. The nightstand is dual purpose as a place to also sit and write or work before bed.
The master bedroom features an antique limestone fireplace that keeps the space warm on a cold winters night. A cozy sitting area flanks the fireplace to enjoy a cup of coffee and read a book.
A second “hers” master bathroom retreat features dark marble with alder cabinetry.
The entrainment room features a a leather wrapped bar with cozy bar stools, pool table and comfortable lounge space.
