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...
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,...
