Staying Ahead of the Design Curve

Staying Ahead of the Design Curve

Consummate professionals never rest on their laurels. And the designers at award-winning Kimberly Timmons Interiors are emblematic of that devoted discipline. Indeed, 20 years after Kimberly Timmons-Beutner started her Denver-based design firm, KTI continues to create and deliver distinctive hospitality, residential and commercial projects by staying ahead of the latest design tastes and trends.   One of the main ways KTI stays on the cutting edge of creative designs is attending various regional and national industry conferences. Last month’s HD Expo 2017 in Las Vegas, the leading hospitality design event in the world, is a perfect example of KTI’s commitment to the trade. The KTI team was actually part of gathering comprising more than 850 exhibitors, 275,000 square-feet of show floor space and thousands of attendees inspired by the latest ideas, designs and brands highlighting the hospitality industry. For KTI design director Carissa M Thompson, NCIDQ, IIDA, NEWH, one of the more memorable exhibitors was the interior finishes company TRI-KES. With technology quickly shaping all facets of our lives, Thompson was fascinated by TRI-KES’ integration of virtual reality and how it’s poised to change the design industry. For instance, several booths featured a virtual experience, including one that allowed you to watch a fully grown blue whale swim by, but the way TRI-KES used virtual reality was “amazing,” according to Thompson.   “I found myself fully immersed in a 3D setting of a two-level flat with dining area, living space and two-story windows that looked over the ocean,” Thompson added. “I could turn around 360 degrees from where I virtually stood and view the entire space, and at first,...
The Future is Bright

The Future is Bright

The bright future of quality residential design for both production and custom homes was on full display at the 2017 International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Orlando, held January 10 – 12. KTI Principal Kimberly Timmons-Beutner, who both attended and presented at this year’s IBS, was mesmerized by all the innovation, technology, and product advances that are coming our way. One set of ideas that will be of interest to designers and builders for the 55+ community was Taylor Morrison’s concept for Active Adult Homes. This “55 & Better” inspired three-bedroom home is being built to capture the things that are most important to those looking for an age-qualified community. Key aspects of the design include a heart of the home kitchen, a master suite oasis, extended outdoor living space, an infusion of natural light and owner-driven finish flexibility.   At the CEDIA Smart Home Pavilion, a wide array of in-home technology solutions like temperature controls, smoke alarms, and home monitoring systems were presented within the Nest Connected Home. Other smart home innovations such as voice-activated home control technologies and new lighting strategies, were paired with workshops on how to work with technology integration professions to ensure clients get the most bang for their buck. At the National Kitchen + Bath Association’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, new products from some of the top names in the industry illuminated the future of appliances, cabinets and storage solutions, exceptionally well-designed fixtures, unique surface treatments, hardware and accessories and so much more.   Seeing so many different eye-opening products and their integration into a nation-wide trend of truly modern residential architecture increases...
Always Doing Something New

Always Doing Something New

As 2017 begins in a whirlwind, the team at Kimberly Timmons Interiors is reminded that doing something great is often about doing something new. For firm principal, Kimberly Timmons-Beutner, this year that starts with being a featured speaker at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, where she will be the co-host of an educational workshop on residential customization. Titled From Brushed & Polished to Roughhewn & Reclaimed: Dynamic, Timeless Interior Details, Kimberly, along with Mary DeWalt, of Mary DeWalt Design Group will be exploring trends in creating inspiring interiors that embody the lifestyle homeowners imagine. Together with the audience, they will cover interior finish materials, enhancing spaces through layered lighting and architectural detailing, and honing in on buyer demographics and price points. Kimberly understands the importance of sharing her insights with builders, buyers, and vendors while pushing her own boundaries and allowing fresh experiences to fuel ideas. Changing user lifestyles, demographic perspectives and cultural influences compel us to continually broaden design’s boundaries as well. It is in this spirit of taking one more step with each opportunity that advances our expertise and evolves our craft. 2017 will show us new colors, new textures, patterns, and possibilities – some will be amazing. At KTI we will rely on the fundamentals – color, texture, proportion, and balance – to evaluate the possibilities of tomorrow with an eager eye for that one thing we can do that changes everything for the better. We are excited to start a new year and welcome new challenges because at Kimberly Timmons Interiors we are always up for doing something new.   Blog Written by Sean...
Black and White – Classic Combinations Never Go Out of Style

Black and White – Classic Combinations Never Go Out of Style

Somethings are simply meant to go together – black and white, wine and cheese, business and pleasure, and success and celebration. Kimberly Timmons Interiors was delighted to be a premier sponsor of Colorado Homes & Lifestyles Redesign Debut Bash and joined many from Colorado’s amazing home design industry in enjoying all of the above on Tuesday January 12th. Beginning with an always elegant theme – Black and White attire, there is nothing like style to add instant flare to any evening. Giving such a simple, timeless ensemble color pallete to a group of interior designers, architects, vendors and other creatives is always beautiful.   Way beyond Wine and Cheese, Kevin Taylor Restaurant Group presented seafood classics of shrimp and crab cakes combined with an eclectic mix of international comfort foods such as grilled cheese and tomato soup shooters, pot stickers, and empanadas. Dessert tables featured delicate custard and berry tarts and chocolate cups filled with cream and topped with a coffee bean crunch. The room came to life under the spell of the signature drink “Colorado Palomas & Lifestyles” a swirling mix of grapefruit juice, lime juice and soda mixed with either vodka or tequila. Of course, style and sustenance are clearly accompanied by good times with old friends and new. It’s always such a treat to see so many colleagues, contemporaries, and counterparts in design at such gatherings, making it so easy to mix Business and Pleasure. With many luminaries of the local design industry among the more than 250 people in attendance there were new and interesting acquaintances at every turn. And of course a good party becomes...
