Contemporary Chateau

The layout of this client’s living room and kitchen was completely rethought as part of this Denver home renovation project. The living room flipped to where the kitchen once was for improved traffic flow and coziness, and the kitchen moved closer to the exterior doors to give a more indoor/outdoor feel to the space.

In the living room, the window was upgraded to a thin, black, steel-framed version, all furnishings were sourced from custom vendors, and the light fixture was a gorgeous chandelier from which features a lost-wax cast bronze finished in warm silver. The finished product was simple and sophisticated, just as both the client and Brayton Interiors desired.

The centerpiece in the kitchen was the beautiful natural movement of the large Calacatta Borghini marble island and backsplash. That piece was surrounded by clean lines of the with items such as the range hood and custom kitchen cabinetry. We added walnut floors to this space so as to soften up the feel of the room, and those were stained in the most natural finish we could find. The subtle depth of the materials—like the plaster walls, blackened steel, metal infused cabinetry, and walnut accent cabinetry—created a more neutral canvas to feature the client’s incredible art collection while still allowing the space to really vibrate.
