Oftentimes, the perfect location does not play host to the perfect home. Such was the case for an active family of five looking to plant their roots in Cherry Hills Village.

The family’s children helped in the design decision making process, including the selection of tile and lighting fixtures for each of their personal bathrooms.


The family’s children are memorialized on the walls in the master bedroom in art painted by the homeowner’s mother. Nightstands by Ryan Schlaefer and lamps by Arteriors accent the space.



The master bath is a perfect example of the overlying design theme for the home – classic with a playful sense of quirk. Seemingly neutral bath tiles, when viewed closely, reveal specialty tiles in various body part shapes. Here, a nose greets the homeowners in their master shower.
