Beth Ann Shepherd, principle of Dressed Design, created a décor with broad appeal for this remodeled investment property. She shares a few of her tricks of the trade.
Shepherd painted the walls with her favorite white, Sherwin-William’s Whitetail. “It makes everything look clean and fresh and creates the perception of more space.”
The designer integrated large, custom mirrors throughout, including those flanking the living room’s revamped fireplace. “Mirrors are so important,” she says. “They make a room look alive and active.”
Shepherd introduced oversized custom art pieces featuring playful themes, including the entry’s “Marilyn” by pop artist DeVon. “People come to Park City to have fun, and they want their homes to be fun, too.”
She rejected busy patterns and relied instead on texture to deliver depth and dimension. “Tactile furnishings and materials add warmth and interest,” says Shepherd, whose choices include the living room’s leather chairs, mohair sofa, striped wool rug and rift-oak-topped table.
Shepherd chose a mix of light neutrals for the décor. “We wanted to warm and open the spaces, and this palette does exactly that,” she says. The designer animated the interior with colorful, strategically placed art and accessories.
