The ladies of Duet Design Group captured our readers' hearts with their bright, contemporary aesthetic, a commitment to supporting local artists, and eco-friendly design practices.
Whether we're scouting houses to grace the pages of our sister publication, 5280 Home, or just complimenting our friend's comfortable-yet-sophisticated abode, one name comes up again and again: Beth Armijo. The 34-year-old Colorado native and principal of Armijo Design Group effortlessly blends Western casual with contemporary elegance for an aesthetic that feels quintessentially Denver.
Raina Cox, the Denver tastemaker behind ifthelampshadefits.blogspot.com, a popular interior design blog, makes us feel like we’re part of the cool kids club. Her tone is snarky but informed and silly but sharp, and her Bohemian-contemporary, midcentury-modern finds have us dreaming up house projects that are legitimately worthy of Pinterest. Cox moved to Denver in 2009, and she’s been passing along meaty local design tidbits ever since (one of her favorite spots to shop is Joy’s Consigned Furnishings on East Hampden).

Finding the perfect interior designer is a tricky business—and a bit like dating. Will you like them? Will they get you? That’s why O Interior Design owner Andrea Monath Schumacher is so damn good. She totally gets you—from your heirloom vases to your animal-print infatuation. Even better, she gets Colorado’s laid-back aesthetic. She’s prone to bold colors, but not so much that your bedroom looks like a circus tent. She’ll recommend modern pieces that are inviting, not stark. The result is a traditional yet contemporary vibe that melds with virtually any home—and owner. 2406 W.
