About this project

This empty-nest couple in Poncha Springs (outside Salida) had recently completed a major addition and remodel of their modest spec home, but there was still work to be done. After completing the remodel, I helped them design the main living spaces and bedrooms where we added area rugs, custom window treatments, and decorative light fixtures.

But, the most rewarding part of the project was helping them reuse inherited family furnishings. We reupholstered chairs and a chaise lounge that we featured in the master bedroom and living room. The standouts are two chairs in the master bedroom that we reupholstered with old Native American rugs inherited from a favorite relative. One rug was used for the chair backs, another for the seats, and a new fabric was used everywhere else the rugs were not large enough to cover.
