Maple Ridge

A beloved family log home that needed freshening up before it went on the market…. a new kitchen counter top, stained the cabinets and painted the interior of the home. I also convinced the owner to get all new bedding. It can completely change the look of a whole room.

Meadows

This home is on a beautiful open space parcel called the Aspen Meadows. The interiors were dated and the color palette was rust and mustard yellow. We prepared this home to sell by changing the color, updating the furnishings in the main rooms and rearranging the owner’s collection of artwork (which can sometimes be as important as updating the furnishings).

Chatfield

The first thing I noticed about this classic mid century home was that its previous real estate photography was not doing it justice. The twilight shots weren’t capturing its magnificent views and some of the original mid century furniture was in bad condition. I did a lot of editing in this home (removing tattered bar stools, rugs and rearranging art work) versus purchasing all new pieces.

Snowbunny Duplex

This house was the home to a very avid art collector and also collector of objets d’art. Many surfaces in the client’s home were covered in these and our first task was to carefully relocate these to a safe place so we could showcase the great spaces this home has to offer.

On the market for years with the same (dreary) photos, we changed courses on art direction to create a more inviting feeling. This home went under contract in 25 days (and later closed).

Maroon Court

I wanted to create a new mood for the updated photography of this stunning home. The previous photos were taken at twilight and I felt like it made this home feel dark and a bit somber. We lightened up some of the rooms with new rugs and accessories, but the big change was in the photo styling/direction. This 9300 square foot home has generous communal spaces that I wanted to showcase individually and from different angles.

Spruce Ridge

This European chalet-style ski in-ski out home was on the market for almost five years (1,702 days!) before the owners gave up. They eventually re-listed it and brought me in to do a walk through. We did a lot of shifting around in this home to lighten the heavy European style which is not as popular these days in Aspen. We were able to dramatically change the living area by editing pieces and adding a new rug and throw pillows on the sofa. I wanted the living area to be photographed from a different angle to show the beautiful nature outside. The home sold within 4 months.

Snowbunny Home

This stunning home was on the market and getting very little interest. The real estate agent and I both agreed the original photography was not capturing the true feeling of the home. I styled and art directed the new photography and think it shows how amazing the interiors and views are in person.

Wood Run

This beautiful home sits on a premier ski in- ski out location. Yet, the dated furnishings and unforgiving photos were making it very difficult to sell.

The owners agreed to make some updates and showcase these with new photography to show its possibilities.
