Hi there Fellow Modern Lovers!  I’m Heather Mourer, the Design Voice for Mile Hi Modern.

As a principal at studiotrope architecture, graphics, and interiors and former owner of One Home, I’ve worked on projects ranging from kitchen and bath renovations to CSU’s current Morgan Library remodel. With each project, I start with one thing in mind:  clean, elegant design, with the clients’ personal tastes guiding the manifestation.

I’ll be writing monthly about fun projects I’m working on, things that are inspiring me, and ways of making the spaces you inhabit into the spaces you love!

SPRING CLEANING

It’s time for spring cleaning, and whether that means moving half your belongings to the curb or taking that extra step of lifting the vase to dust under it, the time is at hand!

Karen Hughes and Mike Brody are ready to shake things up and simplify.  They entertain a lot, and the current furniture set up in their gorgeous mid-century home is not convo-friendly.  The vintage Danish lounge chairs have a much lower seat-height than the upright Cassina sofa making for less-than comfortable visits.

Before: Furniture is not convo-friendly, colors blend into the off-white floor tile creating the "oatmeal effect." Not enough contrast!

Grey and green seemed more appealing. Clients pulled out their vintage amorphic cloud table by Frankl from storage (purchased at Z Modern) and we're putting it to use!

Just ordered the sofa and rug! (I’ll show you “after” pics in a few months–the sofa’s coming from Italy and the rug from Peru so it’ll be awhile….thanks for your patience and dedication Karen and Mike!)
