Slifer Designs showcases variety of houses during home tour
EDWARDS – Vail Mountain School Home Tour Sept. 18 is a tour full of mountain interior design inspiration. The tour will feature eight homes, three of which were designed by Slifer Designs. The Lodge at Vail penthouse, remodeled by the Slifer Designs interior architecture department and furnished by the interior design department, features a warm and colorful country-style interior. “This project was a labor of love for us and the owners,” said Tom Counter, of the Slifer Designs interior architecture and hospitality department, who designed the extensive remodel of the penthouse. “We started with a 1960s interior from Vail’s early days, and finished with a resort penthouse for the new millennium.”The second Slifer Designs home on the tour is a single-family home on Beaver Dam Road. This home is particularly special to Slifer Designs because it represents how well things can meld together when the owner brings the architect, designer and builder together from the beginning, said Andrea Georgopolis of Slifer Designs.”The team effort throughout this project was amazing,” said Georgopolis, interior designer. “Collaborating with Duane Piper of Piper Architects and Shaefer Construction, along with constant contact with the owner, allowed for a seamless process. The owners are thrilled with the results.” The home features modern architecture, a mountain-modern kitchen and contemporary bathrooms, as well as traditional furnishings, creating what Georgopolis refers to as “very eclectic.” The third Slifer Designs home featured on the home tour is a remodeled penthouse overlooking Vail Village above Sweet Basil, which highlights a European-chateau style interior. The great room combines city and mountain design elements, European antiques and a very distinct style far different than one would expect in the heart of Colorado.”We are proud to have three homes featured on this year’s VMS home tour,” said Yvonne Jacobs, vice president of interior design for Slifer Designs. “Our different styles are reflected perfectly within all three homes and showcase the variety that we are capable of creating for our clients.””The breadth of homes showcased on this year’s tour not only reflect Vail’s New Dawn, but also are a testament to Vail’s architectural and design history,” said Tracy Bossow, volunteer chairwoman of the Vail Mountain School Home Tour. “We are fortunate to be able to include some of the top designers, architects and builders in the Rocky Mountains, all of whom have helped to catapult Vail to one of the top resorts in the world.”Contact the Vail Mountain School for home tour tickets at 476-3850.
