Our client for this house is from France and she wanted her new custom home in Boulder, CO to reflect her roots. Working with her architect, Lewis Accosta, and Rosewood Construction, we were able to recreate her idea of “home” — meaning a French country look and feel but with all the modern amenities she was seeking. The house turned our beautifully and our client loves it!

The architect, Lewis Accosta, is now retired and living in New Orleans. His appreciation of French architecture, coming from New Orleans, was the perfect fit for our client from France. Mr. Accosta is an accomplished architect having designed the Terminal A walkway for the Denver International Airport and numerous schools in the area.

The kitchen may be the superstar room of this home. Our client loves to cook and entertain and she had definite preferences for the kitchen. Looking at this photo, we built an additional baking kitchen to the left of the refrigerator. This extra mini-kitchen has a dishwasher, sink and loads of storage which was very important to her.

Speaking of storage, our client wanted a lot of drawers to store her cooking implements.   Since storage is so important to her, we constructed pullout shelves behind swinging doors in the kitchen.

You may notice the lower counter that’s connected to the island. Our client requested this feature for her children so they could play or work there while she cooks and bakes — a brilliant idea!

The arched entry to the kitchen adds some drama and evokes a French country feel. We built this arch out of multi-colored limestone. We used hickory for the stunning hardwood floors.

Not shown in this photo is our client’s built-in desk, constructed from paperstone. Paperstone is a unique composite material made of recycled paper and is petroleum-free. Paperstone is a great desktop surface and it’s durable, although it might not be great for children with access to permanent markers!

Our client chose Subzero and Dacor appliances for her custom kitchen.

This client wanted to feel like she was in her home country, and her French country kitchen takes her back every time she bakes!
