Vail 21 Pops of Color

Pops of Color Enhancing Design

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, color often enters the mind in the form of reds, pinks, and purples. So, what better way to usher in Valentine's Day this year than with a blog post dedicated to those cupid-centric pops of colors. Not to mention the use of color within interior design, in general. Over the years, Kasia Karska Design - a Vail interior designer, as well as a design-build firm - has often used pops of color...

Indoor/Outdoor Space

Kasia Karska, owner and lead designer of her eponymous firm Kasia Karska Design, has a trademark design that all of her clients have loved over the years: indoor/outdoor space. When designing and then building a home from the ground up, Kasia almost always incorporates a seamless transition from the indoor space to the outdoor space. Especially in the mountains of Colorado, with our beautiful weather in the spring/summer/fall and stunning views year-round, clients truly desire having accessible, well-designed outdoor spaces...

Renewable Energy: Solar

[caption id="attachment_169" align="alignnone" width="4032"] Solar panels we installed up at a Leadville fishing ranch project - these panels power the entire barn that is on the property.[/caption] Going green has been trending across multiple industries for awhile now, and with good reason. At KK Design, we love our environment and try to do our part to be a green-conscious and sustainably oriented company. That’s one of the reasons that our current ranch project in Leadville, Colorado is going to be 100%...

Hermès: A Perfect Example of the Fusion of Fashion + Design

Hermès is one of KK Design’s favorites. They have a wide assortment of impeccably designed pieces. They do bold and beautiful patterns. And their scarves, in particular, are irresistible to many. A great example of their elegant patterns and the exquisite work their artists do is seen in the “Baobab Cat Scarf,” as well as in their “Animaux Camoufles” wallpaper (both pictured below). Obviously, one is an accessory for your body and the other is an adornment for your wall. However,...

The Use of Vaastu Shastra + Feng Shui in Design

Vaastu shastra and feng shui play an active role in Kasia’s design techniques (KK Design's Owner and Senior Designer). When it comes to vaastu shastra and feng shui, she is a wealth of knowledge and seamlessly incorporates the principles into her projects. Whether a new build/custom home or a simple remodel, Kasia is very passionate about including both of these Eastern philosophies into her design work. And, because of her studies in vaastu shastra and feng shui, she adds a...

Project Funway: A Local Vail Event

Have you heard of "Project Funway?" Project Funway is a local Vail Valley event that celebrates fashion and design in a very unique way: “This unconventional fashion event challenges amateur designers to create unique garments out of anything but fabric and send them down a runway to be critiqued by expert judges.” And, the best part, it’s put on by local Education Foundation of Eagle County - E•ƒ(ec) - and all proceeds help fund E•ƒ(ec)’s mission “to support education and intellectual and...

Bold + Geometric Patterns within Fashion + Design

We just love how fashion and design are constantly influencing one another. There is an endless conversation taking place between the two. One such conversation that we are absolutely smitten over right now is the use of bold and geometric patterns in both the fashion world, as well as within the world of design. Bold patterns make a statement, whether it’s on your floor or draped over your shoulders. It really allows a tailored personality to shine through. We love...

3 Reasons We Love Reclaimed Wood

As a design + build firm, we’re huge fans of reclaimed wood and here are our top three reasons why: 1. Texture Reclaimed wood has an amazing and varied texture to it. It can add warmth and dimension to a home. There are a variety of colors to choose from: those soothing light grays like the sky after a storm to the rich browns of newly overturned soil to those deep red tones (perhaps from an old barn or maybe the...

A Fashion Muse

A Fashion Muse: Zadig & Voltaire A place that inspires us is Zadig & Voltaire. The store helps us achieve the flowing of creative juices and also steps in as retail therapy after a particularly demanding week. Luckily for us, their only location in Colorado just happens to be in Aspen. It's a not-too-long and utterly breathtaking drive from our office. Yes!   KKD finds that sometimes creativity tends to flow best when you remove yourself from the grind for a few hours and...

The Fusion of Fashion + Design – An Introduction

Welcome to Kasia Karska Design’s new blog: The Fusion of Fashion + Design. As a boutique design + build firm, we believe that fashion and design often inhabit the same space, constantly influencing one another and fusing together. We could even go so far as to say that they both are living, breathing entities (in their own right), constantly in flux, ever-changing, and ever-alluring. And, KKD’s design choices are often influenced by the current - and classic - fashion trends...
