Open for business!

There’s a new hot spot in the Gulch that has a special place in my heart.  Hops + Crafts, proprietors of craft beers from local breweries as well as micro-breweries from around the country, is a great place to sample different brews and the atmosphere isn’t too shabby either, if I do say so myself.  I’m very proud of having worked with the owners on the interior design of their new digs and  I couldn’t be happier with the end result.



The owners were great to work with on this project.  They came to me with a few ideas and were very open to mine.  The end result is a comfortable spot to hang with your friends that also has enough hip factor to fit in with the Gulch landscape.      We mixed a lot of materials in the space; reclaimed barn wood, chrome, glass and even chalkboard paint.  I believe in the power of chalkboard paint!

The chrome and wood barstools make a good contrast against the barn wood bar.  I love these stools because they are the perfect combination of industrial and retro.  They’re pretty comfy too.


Who loves this table? I do!  The legs are polished chrome and the top is reclaimed wood that has some pretty serious graining.  I though it paired well with the antelopes in the fabric.  Frolicking antelopes always make for a good time!

The Gulch skyline…..not a bad view on a Saturday night. 

This project was so much fun to work on and the owners were awesome.  Good luck guys and I look forward to coming over and making use of that patio!
