Take a moment to think about the homes that have impressed you the most. It’s highly likely that those homes used the warmth and attention to detail that comes with Craftsman home design.

Trilogy sees no reason to separate design from the building process and this unique approach comes to life in our beautiful remodeling and new home construction throughout Colorado.

Beeler Place – Copper Mountain
The owners of a townhome near the Copper Mountain Ski Resort transformed their property from a plain looking and enclosed living space into new open areas with fantastic Craftsman style touches and architecture.

Colorado remodel before


A plain, outdated kitchen and living area became a warm, modern space with sleek iron light fixtures, shaker cabinets, an added fireplace, as well as dramatic new railings and spindles that replaced drab sheet-rocked walls. The new elements are all true to Arts and Crafts style, but with a contemporary attitude.

The best news for these property owners is the jump in rental income they have enjoyed since the project was completed. Read their personal letter to Trilogy. You can also see more images from this project in our gallery.

A new exhibition is examining “The Art of Seating: Two Hundred Years of American Design.” The exhibit will be touring smaller cities here in the U.S., bringing great design to the heart of America.

The Art of Seating: Two Hundred Years of American Design…presents a survey of exceptional American chair design from the early 19th century to the present day. The chair is experienced not only as a functional item, but as sculptural in view—the chair as art.

Each of the approximately 40 chairs in the exhibition are chosen for their beauty and historical context with important social, economic, political and cultural influences. Selections from The Jacobsen Collection of American Art are joined by contemporary designs offering a stylistic journey in furniture with show-stoppers by John Henry Belter, George Hunzinger, Herter Brothers, Stickley Brothers, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles & Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi, and Frank Gehry among others.

Take a look at this clip below where Dr. Diane DeMill Jacobsen, who heads up the Jacobsen Collection of American Art, talks about the exhibit.

We love seeing our friends to the north embracing sustainable design and Canada-based SYSTEMATEKS has taken the snack bar to a whole new level. This design is complete with solar panels and has a way of collecting rainwater.

It’s amazing to see how far eco-friendly design has come and we look forward to seeing more from SYSTEMATEKS.

What do you think of this solar paneled snack bar? Is this what the future holds for sustainability?

In honor of the Academy Awards, which airs this Sunday on ABC, we wanted to feature some of our favorite set designs from the recent batch of Oscar-nominated movies. With a little help from our friends at Architectural Digest here are some of this year’s best backdrops.

The Artist- The black and white just adds to the drama.

Hugo- The sets were almost as magical as the movie.

Midnight in Paris- We almost felt like we were time-traveling with Gil to Paris in the 1920s.

Last night The Descendants took home two Golden Globe awards, one for Best Motion Picture – Drama and the other for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for George Clooney. The Descendants tells the story of Matt King, played by George Clooney, who must come to terms with his wife’s betrayal, while she lays comatose in a hospital bed. A parallel storyline in the movie, that entwines with his wife’s affair, is a decision he must make on whether to sell his family shares in 25,000 acres of pristine land on the island of Kaua’i.

Hawaii plays an important part in this film and it’s beauty and poverty are both highlighted. We had a chance to experience the beauty of Hawaii, especially the island of  Kauai, while we remodeled the home of South Park’s Trey Parker. The scenery captured by director Alexander Payne reminds us of our time in this most magical and mystical place.

Take a look at our Kauai home below.

With the economy still struggling to rebound it appears that a new American home is emerging. Gone are the extravagant additions and in its place are more practical and functional ones. According to The Wall Street Journal “Tough recent years are leaving their mark on home design…Big home builders, smaller architecture firms and even bathroom-fixture makers are adjusting to the shift toward more practical features and away from the aspirational.”

One of the many changes that are taking shape in this new “economic downturn” era are the abandonment of the “formal” rooms. Formal living and dining rooms are making way for larger kitchens and more closet space. The open family room is now on the scene and is much more functional than a formal living room. Also making a departure is the grand foyer, which is being replaced with “drop zones” or glorified mud rooms.

Families are looking for everyday spaces, a room that will be utilized on a daily basis.

We are also seeing more homes that are incorporating universal design. Elevator shafts are being added to the floor plan and larger showers are replacing the jacuzzis and soaker tubs.

What are some of the ways you think our homes have changed? What aspect of home design is most important to you and your family?



A bathroom should be a place of calm and relaxation. An oasis where you can wash away the stresses of your daily life. Think of a zen-like bath, with natural elements and sleek lines.

This Steamboat Springs’ home features a bath that accentuates the natural elements.

We wanted to bring a touch of nature into this guest bath.

And this breathtaking bath draws inspiration for its beautiful view, also by bringing nature indoors.

By incorporating natural elements into your bath you’ll be able to create a place where you can go and rejuvenate your body and mind.

Last week we highlighted some of our kitchens for National Kitchen and Bath Month, but today we wanted to focus on the bathroom. We find many people will spend the “big bucks” to renovate and remodel their kitchen and outdoor living space, but are hesitant to update their bathrooms, especially the master bathroom. Like a kitchen, you’ll be able to recoup most of the cost of the renovation to the bathroom if and when you decide to sell your home.

There are many levels when remodeling your bathroom, a mid-range bathroom remodel can include installing a new toilet, tub, new sink and vanity and new flooring. A high level remodel can consist of all of the above, plus expanding the room additional footage, adding a window, reconfiguring the layout of the bathroom, adding a bidet, new lighting and shower.

Before you consider what type of renovation your bathroom falls under take a look online and through magazines to get inspired and you’ll need to work out a budget as well.

We hope to provide you with inspiration today in honor of National Kitchen and Bath Month. Take a look at some of our bathroom designs below.
