Interior Visions, Crested Butte, CO
Few spaces have undergone as dramatic a transformation as this horse carriage storage shed, a 100-year-old structure that was deemed an historic building in Crested Butte, CO. As such, the owners chose to restore it, asking Heidi Sherratt of Interior Visions in Butte to transform it into a vacation rental cabin.
For Sherratt, who started with a structure with dirt floors, no insulation and no foundation, the vision was to create a historic miner’s cabin feel with a modern country twist per the clients’ request. Due to its historic designation, the shed was dismantled and put back together, piece by piece, after a foundation was in place.
Light colored cabinetry and countertops – including StarMark Cabinetry’s Milan door in maple painted Marshmallow Cream and Arizona Tile’s Victoria quartz – were used to make the tiny cabin feel more spacious. These also helped to balance the darker elements in the room, including the reclaimed oak floors and backsplash, done in Arizona Tile’s H-Line Alabaster Glossy subway tile.
A full suite of appliances from GE’s Artistry collection in white helped to preserve the historic aesthetic of the cabin. Pewter cupped cabinet pulls from Top Knobs, an apron-front Shaws sink from Rohl and Kohler Artifacts stainless faucet enhance the vintage feel of the space. Additional special touches include a tin-tiled island, Kalalou glass pendant lighting and Eastleigh Wall Sconces from Currey & Co.
