color commentary

I WAS SITTING IN AN ART HISTORY class in college when the professor said to us, “Let’s talk about color. What’s your favorite?” My classmates and I looked at each other and squirmed: Nobody had asked us that question since we were kids on a playground. Make us compare the Post-Impressionists to the Cubists, or give us a pop quiz on the works of Cézanne, but…our favorite color? The professor pointed to a student seated next to me and repeated her question. “Purple,” the woman shrugged. The teacher asked why and waited. “Because…it’s like a really good meal. It’s not just one thing. It’s nuanced, and it feels complex and…” The woman trailed off as our professor smiled and pumped her fists. “Yes!” she cried. “Who’s next?” We hesitantly volunteered our answers,…

Julie Dugdale WRITER Freelance writer Julie Dugdale has a thing for deep turquoise: “I have at least three vases in various shades, a Chesterfield sofa, a couple of lamp bases, a chalk-painted tea cart—I’ll stop there,” she says. “The color takes me back to the coast, where I grew up.” So you can imagine her delight at discovering the distinctive peacock wallcovering in the home featured in “The New Classic” (page 60), which she wrote. “The pattern is the perfect dose of whimsy and personality,” she says—and, of course, a spot-on color. Kimberly Gavin PHOTOGRAPHER When Kimberly Gavin walked into the home she photographed for “The Bright Side” (page 35), she was instantly smitten: “I loved being in a home that is full of bright, happy colors,” she says. “The bold use of color and…

fresh vinyl

When artist Derrick Velasquez moved to Denver a decade ago and struggled to find work, he eked out a living selling handmade sketchbooks and journals. As he pre-cut strips of vinyl and draped them over a nail, readying them for use as closure straps, he was reminded of the architecture of the human form—“the way that skin lays over muscle…the way our bodies relax in a state of repose,” he says. Inspired, he began to formalize those random stacks, layering vinyl strips over wooden armatures—sometimes into spontaneous compositions, other times in predesigned patterns with calculated color changes. The resulting Untitled Series wall sculptures (find them at Denver’s Robischon Gallery, along with Velasquez’s collages, photography, and drawings) range in size from 24 by 24 inches to the 7-foot-tall “Untitled 88” on…

work in progress

When faced with a blank canvas in her Lowry studio, painter Alyson Khan knows exactly how to begin: She writes. Khan scrawls a phrase, quote, or question to set her intention—something like Does your happiness matter? I would venture to say yes. “It becomes my first draft,” she says. “I just start building from there.” Khan covers the foundational words with layers of paint from an ever-changing palette that often includes earthy ochres, opulent turquoises, moody blacks, and feisty pinks to create dramatic, geometric shapes. The result, what she calls “a resolution,” is a conceptual representation of her emotional journey. This exploratory process resonates with interior designers, art collectors, and even national retailers such as Anthropologie, which sold two of her prints in its spring 2018 collection. Several galleries, including Austin-based Wonderwall…

the coolest camp“out”

When designing this cheery kids’ room in her family’s Greenwood Village home, blogger and mom of three children—all under age six!—Leila Lewis made a somewhat philosophical decision: Rather than turn to the internet—and endless Googling for “boy’s room ideas”—she decided to dream up a design concept that reflects her family’s story. Their recent move to the Centennial State helped her land on the theme of adventure. “I wanted the room to reflect the roots we’re now building in the mountains, and the Colorado culture of exploring,” says Lewis, founder and author of the everyday-ideas blog Inspired By This. Given that the family’s former home was a tiny Los Angeles condo, they needed furniture in a big way—and Lewis and local stylist Natalie Warady outfitted the space from scratch. Featuring pieces from Target’s…
