family home in boulder, colorado

for this kalmia home, we wanted to create engaging, flexible spaces that work for entertaining both large and small groups, as well as encouraging cozy, intimate family time. in the larger living room we left the persian rug relatively free of furniture pieces so that the intricate, colorful design could be appreciated. the burnt reds and teals of the carpet and the morroccan floor cushion add warmth and dimension to the expansive space. we scattered several ottomans around the room that are easily moveable to allow for a variety of seating and social arrangements.

for the family room, we mixed in textured accessories such as yarn and sheepskin pillows, felt and woven baskets and a braided felt rug with clean, mid-century era wooden pieces to create an inviting, open space that integrates well with both the dining area and the kitchen. family members and guests can move and socialize easily among the various spaces.
