Anchoring the Evergreen Design Center
The design process is an eclectic effort. Your home is so much more than four walls and a roof. It is a space where relationships grow and dreams expand, problems are solved or at least discussed, grace is extended and forgiveness is imperative. The rooms where your life takes place, precedent actually, provide shelter and inclusion and way more than either of those words can express. Your sense of well-being comes from the climate created by your surroundings, from your relationship to the atmosphere of your home. A good designer will do more than paint your walls. They will learn your story, understand your lifestyle and make the space you occupy one of the players in your drama.
The Evergreen Design Center was started with a deliberate intention to gather the most creative professionals in the industry, giving you the opportunity to meet a vast array of design needs in one spectacular pavilion of merchants. The result is a thoughtful combination of indoor and outdoor furnishings and accessories, lighting, art, hand woven and individually designed rugs, superior wood flooring, landscape architecture, custom framing and Colorado designed and built furniture.

Every home is made more inviting when books are present - if the tomes are old or rare, or both, all the better. Edward Regalado of Books by Edward has shelves filled with a treasure trove of literary classics, coffee table books, reference books, travel books and collectors’ editions for your browsing pleasure. Nothing finishes a room, or brings that personal touch like a well worn copy of a favorite novel, and Edward offers everything from leather bound covers to dog eared pages for you to choose from. In his other life he guides his clientele through the intricacies of health insurance, but the books are his first passion.
Alpine Blue Home has taken furniture design to a new level, using only “dead wood” for their creations. Owners Doug and Amy Golenz offer big design for small places and are known for their use of beetle kill wood as well as wood garnered from urban environments. Their uniquely elegant designs put the wood itself on center stage, emphasizing the grain and the color that becomes apparent only after the tree has gone to rest. They are masters at reviving the beauty in a fallen pine and they are especially proud that their furniture supports fire mitigation by clearing the forest of dead trees. They design and build their distinctive home furnishings on-site at the Evergreen Design Center.
