Art Meets Style Aspen Residence, Colorado
New York City and Aspen-based design studio Stonefox Design has completed the interior design of a 1980s home. The stylish property can be found in Aspen, Colorado, USA.
According to the architects: “A hip young couple commissioned Stonefox Design to create a home that expresses their passion for art and their style for living. This is not a fusty grouping of over-the-sofa watercolours, but a vibrant, sometimes controversial, always evolving collection that embraces young artists as well as famous names.
“Chris Stone and David Fox designed the contemporary Colorado property and selected the furnishings, about half of which are original Stonefox designs. The resulting light/dark palette is accented with rich, natural wood and cool gray stone. Large windows bring tremendous views of Colorado’s majestic Independence Pass and plenty of natural light.
The open spaces—even the see-through fireplace—allow glimpses of various pieces, including Damien Hirst’s ‘Beautiful, Lovely My Little Pony Stardust’ and Edward Ruscha’s ‘It’s Ridiculous’, from throughout the contemporary Colorado house. The central stair pivots around an 18-foot-tall column by Jenny Holzer, commissioned by the client in collaboration with Stonefox.
“The owners, both of whom serve on art museum boards internationally, wanted a house that expressed their tastes and their artistic passions. The art and architecture, together, set up a discourse on the international art scene that is intimate, challenging, cerebral, and, at times, humorous.”
