State-of-the-art kitchens are required in today’s mountain West interiors. However, they require a delicate balance of materials and technology to achieve an interior that delivers a superb cooking space with aesthetics appropriate to the area. Indigenous materials – including woods and stone – combined with clean lines create modern interiors that function well. Yet, they also yield a warmth that harkens to the rustic feeling of the mountains. Appliances, whether in view or hidden, must be the most recent, whereas lighting can be modern or vintage. In total, mountain West kitchens must appear to be authentic, but must function as though installed today. It’s a tall order to make these kitchens look simple, but it’s what Peace Design delivers.
Modern has many meanings, but one of the most elegantly modern rooms is one that includes contemporary sculpture. The forms with fluid lines are anything but simple; instead they are complex and provide interest in the room. This living room overlooking the vast vistas of the city is a mixture of soft upholstery in luxurious fabrics with iconic pieces as accents, and several sculptural forms that break up the lines and infuse the room with texture. Peace Design is focused on the fusion of modern into elegant living areas, and this project remains a favorite.
