A mix of contemporary and rustic, the “mountain modern” design style appears in some downtown lofts and condos in Denver. Whether you just bought a Denver loft or plan to decorate your loft or condo to take advantage of the recent surge in home values, consider an eclectic mix of materials, furniture and art pieces that honor the Western spirit. Throughout the country, former industrial buildings become converted lofts for residential use. The chic industrial look is popular in cities such as New York, but downtown Denver lofts often combine the edgy industrial style with the work of Colorado artists and craftsman.
Decorating a space that has a history
In Denver, some of the most popular lofts include Bayly Lofts, just blocks from Coors Field in LoDo; the Streetcar Stables, an 1880s building original brick facade and Ajax Lofts in Prospect Place, a transitional neighborhood west of historic LoDo. An article by Homedit interior design and architecture features a fourth floor loft in the Flour Mill Lofts in Denver. Calling it one of 10 amazing loft designs, the article highlights the mountain modern design of the loft with brick wall, ceiling beams, exposed ductwork, wood floors and modern cabinets.
Emphasizing local talent and materials
Mountain modern downplays the cowboy and Indian artifacts, sculptures, rugs, textiles and designs, but still showcases the handiwork of Colorado artists. According to an article by denverpost.com, mountain modern takes its cue from the Old West, but also incorporates green living concepts. Before listing your downtown loft or condo in Denver, shop for furniture crafted in Colorado. Recycled, reclaimed, refurbished items work well in a Denver loft.
If you are moving to Denver as part of a corporate relocation, look for authentic lofts in historic buildings. Many of the downtown lofts boast high ceilings and wide open spaces. By teaming up with an experienced Denver Realtor who can show you an array of downtown lofts and condos, you can get a better feel for what you want. Some of the choices include Diamond Lofts across from Coors Field, Blake Street Lofts within walking distance to Coors Field, Glass House and Jack Kerouac Lofts with Italian kitchens and private balconies. And, the Flour Mill Lofts in the Central Park Valle overlooks Cuernavaca Park.
