W

ith its vast mountain views and lush landscape, this Aspen home was the perfect setting for one couple. But, originally devised in the 1960s and remodeled in the Arts and Crafts style in the ’90s, the house was due for a simplification. So, the homeowners called on designers Barbara Glass Mullen and Richard Mullen to reimagine the space.

“The clients wanted a more modern design,” says Mullen, “so we pointed them toward working with the architectural vocabulary of the original 1960s features.”

In the living-dining-and-kitchen area, Mullen recreated the original pyramid ceiling, which ended up being a prominent feature in the house. Working with Glass Mullen, the designer created a new and enlarged kitchen with white-oak cabinetry and an expansive marble backsplash and hood.

Glass Mullen then dressed the interior architecture with different layers of texture and a cool wintery palette of blue, gray and white. “Using layers of different fibers creates dimension and richness,” she says.

“Our clients asked for something much cleaner and lighter,” Mullen says. “We paid homage to the home’s modern roots but also brought it into the 21st century.”
