While living in Aspen, Colorado for 20 years, I maintained an Interior Design office & decorated homes for many people from all over the country & the world, in both Aspen & Beaver Creek.

 

The Great Camp Collection , High-Style Lodge & Ranch Home Furnishings, was created following my design of several lodge & ranch furniture pieces that became popular.  One piece in particular, a Thomas Molesworth inspired upholstered lounge chair, became especially desirable after my photographer submitted a CD of that chair to Architectural Digest and they chose to feature it as an editorial endorsement in June, 2003.  Harper's Bazaar magazine soon followed with another large full-color endorsement.  Receiving National recognition from those two iconic giants was simply remarkable, and one person who contacted me as a result of it is someone I am still working with today, many years later.

 

I have had many great clients over the years.  Working on one beautiful Aspen residence, my clients also retained me to design the interiors of a 1927 Palm Beach Villa on 7 acres they had also just purchased.  When visiting that property with them once, they asked if I could take the time to fly to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands where they maintained their 80 ft. yacht, The Lotus, with crew of six awaiting, and cruise for a few days to some of the other islands.  (Oh well, OK, I'll see if I can fit that in!)  We had many things to discuss regarding their properties, and it would give us a chance to do that, & they also wanted some input on the interiors of their boat!   They were young, adventuresome & fun, & among my client favorites.

 

 Another time while working on a large & lovely Aspen home for some of the nicest people you can imagine, my clients decided a trip to Santa Fe for some artwork & accessory shopping would be fun, and asked me to charter a private plane so the three of us could fly there within the next day or two.  So nice!  But getting real, that flight was undoubtedly the worst flight I have ever experienced!  Flying is not necessarily my very favorite thing anyway, but the turbulence on that flight was so bad I thought the plane was going to be ripped apart for sure!   We all felt like kissing the ground when we finally landed!  Three days in Santa Fe restored our equilibrium though, and the flight home was so beautiful & so perfect that totally made up for it.

 

My husband was a successful Aspen architect, who had over 15 employees at one time.  He was hired as the architect for The Charter Hotel in Beaver Creek, the largest & most expensive project at that time  in the state.  The developer hired me to furnish the interiors of two model units they had constructed with their sales facility, and as a result of that, I was retained to decorate the interiors of several two-bedroom condominium units at The Charter for the new private owners.

 

The Great Camp Collection has now evolved into my Website Gallery, offering lodge & ranch artwork, antique folk art, accessories, lighting, & unique pieces of antique furniture.

 

 I hope you enjoy it!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Please feel free to call me or email if you have any questions.

My best,

Bonnie
