About me

Gender Female
Occupation design/build
Location Telluride, Colorado, United States
Introduction KB Design Stage, primarily a staging and design consulting business, has grown out of my love of inspired and original design. Through this blog I hope to explore the grains of inspiration that make-up my daily experience, travels and life in Telluride. I am challenged by the rugged, constanly changing landscape of southwest Colorado. I want to give readers a sense of the deeper level of natural beauty that surrounds all of us. I'll be highlighting the modern, the charming, the historic, as well as some before and afters.... Mostly I want to revel in the juxtaposition of beauty and decay and of the fresh and timeless elements that are the avalanche of every day inspiration for me.
