PROJECT REVEAL: THE HOTEL DURANT


Opportunities present themselves in the funniest ways, and co-designing this hotel with Connie Woods of IDI Colorado was a very lucky happenstance. Connie and her husband recently moved to Salt Lake City from Aspen, Colorado (where they still work) and bought the N Street home I designed for an investor. Connie, who is a double-threat, Architect + Interior Designer needed some help designing and sourcing furnishings for The Hotel Durant, she and her husband were hired to design/construct (her husband is a contractor and did the work on the hotel). And because she liked her home she purchased, she called me!

This project has been in the works for almost a year, and it finished just in time for the high-season in Aspen, Colorado.

I have to tell you, designing a hotel is a dream come true and I definitely have the bug for designing commercial spaces. These photos are not professional (those will come later), but I was too excited to share the finished project with you to wait.

In order to understand how far we came with the hotel, I have to show you the before photos. And if you would like to see our (Jamie Richards and I) inspiration for the hotel, check out this post and our Pinterest board for sources.

CUSTOM SOURCES: 
- All of the beds, desks, closets, and kitchen cabinets are done by the super talented team at Calls Design in Salt Lake City. They are constructed out of walnut and even more beautiful in person. 

- The dining banquette frames and lobby desk are made by Maison Bleu Designs, in SLC.

- The dining banquettes are custom upholstered by Rocky Mountain Design, in SLC. 

- The wood + metal cubes were custom made by CG Sparks in SLC. 

More photos will be posted in the future, but I hope these photos inspired you to book your trip to Aspen this winter and stay at the Hotel Durant! (tell them White + Gold Design sent you!)

  11. Can you tell me how well the Cole & Sons Woods wallpaper works in that bathroom application? I considered using Woods for my stairwell, but the wallcovering is true paper (not vinyl) and is therefore pretty fragile. Finger prints, scuff marks... Not very forgiving. GORGEOUS, but not forgiving. I've seen it used in children's rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, etc. and I can't fathom how that's possible. Is there a secret to making it more durable?
