Vintage Gables

Custom-Built Home: Vintage Gables

Welcome to Vintage Gables!

These clients came to the Design Team wanting a younger family home. He was into a modern style and liked gadgets and design, while she wanted to bring in some of her Colorado background with warmth and stone–a more rustic quality. She wanted a home you could live in, one with a cozy feel, but didn’t mind the cleaner modern lines. The result was a comfortable, casual, incorporated modern design.

The “vintage” in Vintage Gables is from its mid-century modern home style. The lower level mid-century modern flavor was combined with an open, functional layout. There are no formal rooms in the home; the great room, dining room, and kitchen are all one room. A combination of wood and stone are used throughout the house, most notably in the kitchen, great room, and stairway. Another distinctive aspect to this home is the work room inside the laundry room.

The clients wanted a certain level of a funky, fun, and “different” interior design. Interiors Joan & Associates provided the interior design for this home, and wall coverings and wallpaper were incorporated throughout the house. Two different types of wallpaper are used in the dining room, and what appears to be wood chips on the wall is actually wallpaper. In the master bedroom, two different types of wallpaper were again used, creating a cozy color scheme. The different rooms have different wall colors, patterns, and textures.

Outside, the wood beams join Colorado Contemporary with modern, creating stunning sight lines. The flying gables roofline is especially striking from the backyard. A separate detached building was designed in order to create the courtyard in the front of the house, similar to that of the Modern Farmhouse.

This client wanted to create a home that was “Houzz-worthy”. Vintage Gables provides great inspiration to homeowners and home designers who are browsing Houzz while showcasing the unique skills possessed by Curt Hofer & Associates. You can view the Vintage Gables project on Houzz here.
