When these homeowners and their young children gutted their turn of the century bungalow near historic downtown Louisville, Colorado, they hired us to add modern-ethnic character to their urban undertakings. We selected tile, wall coverings, lighting and colorful furnishings. With a ground of white and black, we popped fun color combinations and warm wood tones in each room. The transitions between spaces work by weaving common fixed finishes throughout. The front room without a TV creates an initial impression that is comfortable, inviting and unexpected.
