Some mountain dwellers swaddle themselves in neutral, monochromatic décors, but the owners of this Promontory home featured in High Drama had other plans. They craved color, and designer Kristin Rocke responded in spades. Taking her inspiration from the surrounding landscape and sky, she punctuated the interior with bold hues and matched them with dramatic design elements. Photographer Scot Zimmerman snapped many photos of the home, and we’ve gathered some of those that didn’t make it into our print feature story. Prepare to be dazzled.
In the hands of interior designer Kristin Rocke, Inouye Design and Greg Young Construction, this new Promontory residence showcases striking architecture and a daring décor that animate the Park City home. “Our clients told me that they wanted to see color, they wanted to see drama,” Rocke explains. Mission accomplished.
Dry stacked stone and steel panels that run both vertically and horizontally define the great room’s unique fireplace.
Pillows dressed in Christian Lacroix and Osborne & Little fabrics bedazzle a teal Vanguard sofa in the great room’s sitting area.
Rocke displayed placed streamlined shelves in front of a large window in the great room. “The views are so extraordinary, so we wanted create a moment here with something translucent,” she explains.
In the open kitchen, bookmatched Panda marble slabs perform like abstract art on the backsplashes. An open “X” table base anchors the end of the kitchen’s dining island. Pendant lights designed by Sean Lavin for Tech Lighting. Bar stools are by Mater.
A reveal between the kitchen cabinets and marble countertops accentuates the stone’s thinness. Above, Iittala glasses and pottery mugs by Clairware deliver color to the kitchen’s open glass shelves.
Art from Park City’s Julie Nester Gallery hangs above a console by Jonathan Adler.
Green faux bois Christian Lacroix wallpaper teams with blinds tailored from Christian Lacroix’s glowing Herbarium Crepuscule fabric to deliver vibrant colors and punchy pattern to the pantry.
In the mudroom, a slatted wall of white oak features retractable hooks that cleverly flip out for hanging bags, coats and hats.
The primary bedroom reflects the owners’ love of color and texture. Phillip Jeffries “Longitude” wallpaper pairs with draperies tailored in Whimsical, an embroidered watercolor fabric by Kravet. Pillows showcase fabrics from Casamance.
Floating vanities, brass accents and a palette of dark and light give a spacious bathroom big style and striking dimension.
In the lower-level family room, Rocke designed the broad fireplace to feature a combed-plaster face, illuminated Cristallo quartzite surround, and a terrazzo hearth that extends to form a floating bench. Detailed plaster work is by Iconography.
Rocke painted the bunk room’s bunks with Sherwin-Williams’ Frank Blue and dressed the ceiling inset above in a colorful abstract paper. The lower bunks are queen-size while two twin beds offer additional sleeping space on the upper platform.
