Eight smartly designed spaces that tell the stories of their inhabitants—and aren’t afraid to make a statement while doing so.

Though this airy cooking space designed for a new home in southeast Denver certainly fits the bill of the white-kitchen trend, Denver design firm Studio Thomas decided to steer clear of too-brilliant shades. Instead, they opted for a creamy wall color that’s good enough to eat: Benjamin Moore’s Vanilla Milkshake. “We try not to do whites that are really bright and hard; it feels too sterile and cold,” says Studio Thomas’ senior designer and design director Kristin Drake, who collaborated on this project with Kristen Thomas, the firm’s principal designer and owner. “Everything still has to have a warmth to it that makes you feel good.”
That ethos radiates from the range wall, clad in Circo white marble, an off-white stone with subtle gold undertones. “I see slabs as pieces of art,” Drake says, noting that she worked with the fabricator and homeowner to run through many possible cuts and configurations until they “achieved the perfect flow of veining in the room on the hood, perimeter wall, and book-matched island.” The slab is divided into five pieces, in part to accommodate the floating shelves—a touch that required close collaboration with G&M Stone Tops and Denver’s Aspen Leaf Kitchens, which also installed the embedded custom-millwork wall that hides the refrigerator, coffee-prep station, and pantry. Finishing touches include two graceful custom pendants that echo the arches Studio Thomas added to the hallway openings—one of which perfectly frames a glass-enclosed wine cellar with steel framing. Including such customized interior architectural elements is a hallmark of Studio Thomas’ work: “We want that in all our projects,” Drake says. “It makes the home feel special.”
