Colorado Home & Garden / Fall 2019
In this article on celebrity interior designer Kari Whitman, we get an in-depth look at the challenges and choices she had to make when renovating a 1901 grocery store into a comfortable but masculine living space.
Salvaged pre-war industrial windows were used to make the shower enclosure, as the client requested full privacy without the use of any drywall. Other creative touches include a wall made of belts, a wall made of plants, door knob towel hooks, and lights in the bedroom that were once train headlamps. Kari says “I’m bored seeing the same things everywhere, not being able to find what I love”, but one certainly couldn’t be bored with the captivating details throughout this modern industrial home.
