From foyers to patios and everything in between, four of Denver’s favorite interior designers share their takes on creating your home sweet home.
Marjorie Cranston (formerly Marjorie Stark)
She's all about nuts and bolts. Her expertise in construction planning revolves around the small details that give a house presence: fireplaces, trims, moldings, front doors. In addition to the pretty, she has a keen eye for the functional: appliances, plumbing, roofing, and the like. “Most people don’t think of a woman being interested in things like plumbing, but I have a fascination for how things are put together,” says Cranston, who’s owned her own interior design business for 10 years. “I’m very mechanical in my thinking process. I like to problem solve and figure out how everything will fit together so that it will all look good in the end.”
Although she’s redecorated specific rooms during her 22-year career, Cranston prefers to focus her talents on the home’s actual structure. “I think the backdrop is the most important thing. If that’s solid, you can put nothing in it and it will still look beautiful. I’m becoming more of a minimalist because I like the architectural element so much.” You can readily identify Cranston’s craft by her selection of beautiful woods and moldings.
