Denver Life Magazine Designer Showhouse – Part I

Denver Life Magazine Designer Showhouse – Part I

Denver Life Magazine Designer Showhouse Part 1 It’s ShowTime in Denver. Or, to be precise, Designer Showhouse Time. And this year, the team at Kimberly Timmons Interiors has the pleasure of participating in the annual fall tradition of Denver’s best home builders, architects and designers coming together for charity. The 2017 Denver Life Magazine Designer Showhouse renovation project, which officially commenced last week, is a collaborative effort between Denver Life Magazine, Caliber Construction, Alvarez Morris Architecture and 13 different interior designers. All of the participants are volunteering countless hours towards the project with a collective philanthropic goal of helping raise more than $35,000 for Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver. The Denver home being completely remodeled and presented this year to the public is a Tudor-style home located at 919 S. Columbine Street. The 4,605-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath residence, originally built in 1937, is situated in the Bonnie Brae neighborhood and will be available for public viewing Sept. 9-24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Daily price of admission is $20 and all of the event’s proceeds directly benefit Denver’s Habitat for Humanity. “You won’t want to miss this beautifully renovated home,” says Shawn Miller, publisher of Denver Life Magazine and CEO of Elevation Media Group. “Each year, our Designer Showhouse gives readers – and the public – an inside look at what’s new in home décor trends and design, and offers tons of inspiration.” Much like the three previous Designer Showhouse charitable events, each of the interior design teams were given rooms to reimagine and tasked with the assignment to create a unique space that not only reflects their...
Community Spirit Feels Like Teamwork

Community Spirit Feels Like Teamwork

There is a special feeling that comes from helping others that’s hard to describe yet easy to understand. Kimberly Timmons Interiors is honored to support the Denver Montessori High School (DMHS) with pro-bono design services for the redevelopment of an entire floor of classrooms and the creation of a new interactive café and learning center. Located in northwest Denver’s Sunnyside neighborhood, DHMS is the first Montessori School in Denver and strives to help students develop self-awareness and a personal vision of their education. Working with a diverse group of students, educators, design professionals, material suppliers, and craftsmen, KTI’s own Kimberly Timmons-Beutner, Carissa Thompson and Shannon McLaughlin each donated their time and talent to help plan what will certainly be a marvelous transformation on a budget of old-fashioned knowhow and community goodwill.   A key goal of DMHS’ secondary education is to focus on the whole child – that they develop creativity, ingenuity, adaptability and initiative through problem solving, community building and real world experiences. KTI worked with the school’s students and faculty to make design recommendations on finishes, materials and furnishings to be used throughout the high school. There was wonderful student participation in making design decisions on the classrooms to café transformation and when the new lounge opens officially on December 15, it will be special. Learning was integral to success on this project and perhaps the gift of craftsmanship is among the greatest gifts of all. After John Matlack of KB Contract donated 30-yards of Keyston vinyl to reupholster classic modern chairs, Josh Romig of Sedita Manufacturing spent the better part of an afternoon training students how...
Making a Difference with Every Dime

Making a Difference with Every Dime

Despite the near-constant churn of today’s “go-go-go” business climate, Kimberly Timmons Interiors (KTI) continues to look for ways to use design as a means of helping others. Today, we are pleased to announce completion of a new freshwater drinking well in the village of Anh Janh, located in the Siam Reap Providence of Cambodia. Through a charity called Together We Can Change the World, KTI’s donation has been transformed into a year-round supply of clean, sustainable drinking water for families who previously lacked a vital resource many of us take for granted. It’s a great feeling to know our relatively modest contribution will change many lives for years to come, and we want to spread awareness of the organization that made it all happen. Together We Can Change the World was founded in 2008 by Jana Stanfield and Scott Friedman, who had business relations throughout Southeast Asia. Today, the organization raises money to support non-governmental agencies working to help chronically poor villagers in Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia Laos, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. In addition to its well-building program, Together We Can Change the World builds and operates privately funded schools; provides secure housing and supportive counseling services for at-risk pregnant women; and teaches home economics, ecological development practices, and other life skills among other initiatives. If this post is a bright spot in your day, we hope you will be inspired to share some brightness with others. Whether you donate to one of the many wonderful aid organizations in the US and internationally or take a more one-on-one approach to helping out, please remember that even small actions and simple...
