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 personal styles but ensures the house as a whole flows seamlessly together.
KTI project manager Kim McInnes and designer Nikki Holt are thrilled to represent the company at this year’s project and rub renovation shoulders with so many other talented Denver-area designers and vendors. After focusing on the model home side of the business for many years representing builders/developers and their respective model homes, McInnes and Holt are also excited by the opportunity to shift their talents over to the residential side of the design spectrum.
“This is a new style of design style that we have been wanting to do so we’re really excited about that,” says McInnes, who features more than 18 years of design experience. “
Holt, one of the newer members of KTI’s residential design team, has particularly enjoyed working alongside so many other top-notch Denver design professionals and vendors willing to give back to the community.
“We have loved collaborating with all of the vendors,” Holt says. “They have all bent over backwards for us!”
McInnes and Holt officially “moved in” to their Showhouse room on July 20 and plan to be photo ready by the end of the month. The grand opening celebration is Sept. 6.
Following are some of KTI’s Dining Room partners: Donnie Criswell of DIY (Design It Yourself) Furniture, who custom designed and donated KTI’s dining room; Bobbi Walker of Walker Fine Art, who donated the room’s art; Jean-Pierre Sijmons of City Plantscaping, who donated KTI’s “Living Wall;” Teresa Richardson of The Lighting Studio, who donated lighting, and Shaver Ramsey, who donated the room’s rug.
Stay tuned for next month’s big reveal as it relates to KTI’s renovated Dining Room.
