Belcaro Residence

The design team was presented with a unique challenge; to transport a Denver couple and all of their furniture, antiques and artwork from a four-story Georgian to a ranch home in the Denver neighborhood of Belcaro.   Years before the designers had selected the furnishings for the Georgian and knew the pieces well, but struggled to envision them in the fairly spartan environment of a ranch house. Undeterred, the team seized upon the idea of using the ceiling to add detail to the space.  Simple millwork strips were added to the ceiling to create a lattice effect and provide detail to make the traditional furnishings seem at home. Additional moldings were added at arched openings and new finishes created strong connections to the furnishings.  A custom library space was constructed with a secret passage bookcase that is a feature in the home.
