DHR Interiors invents "Fresh Powder" design at Empire Pass
February 15, 2008
The Larkspur Townhomes at Empire Pass have a new look, thanks to Colorado-based interior design group, DHR Interiors. The look is called "Fresh Powder," and it puts a new spin on contemporary mountain styles in Park City.
"It creates a calm, peaceful refuge for the active lifestyle," said Andrea Wood, director of interior design at DHR. "It’s based on the modernist principle We don’t have antlers and piles of paisley and plaid."
DHR hosted an open house a Larkspur townhome at the Village at Empire Pass Wednesday, where the media was allowed to tour the new facilities and learn about the new designs DHR Interiors has incorporated in the homes.
The "Fresh Powder" designs of the homes feature "quiet" colors of light blues, oranges, whites and browns, with "dynamic, clean lines."
"Fresh Powder" is the brainchild of DHR Interiors, which works with East West Partners in Park City to create new looks for the company’s hospitality projects in Deer Valley and Colorado.
Wood said Larkspur Townhomes’ style is geared toward a "younger," more "sophisticated" crowd with a world view.

The interiors of the townhomes follow a contemporary theme, mixed with mountain themes.
All of the furniture in the homes is custom designed, Wood said, including several pieces made from Indonesian wood. The rooms also include custom-dyed wool rugs woven in Scotland and large scale artwork by contemporary artists Berry Holz and Conor O’Donnel.
The bedrooms feature textural grass cloth on the walls and faux-fur coverlets on loveseats.
"You still know you’re in the mountains, [but] it’s a new look at mountain style," Wood said. "It’s tasteful, but not over-decorated."
Wood said her interior design company came up with "Fresh Powder" to match the ski resort themes and atmosphere of Deer Valley.
"We are excited to introduce ‘Fresh Powder’ at Larkspur because it is the perfect setting to present this new perspective on western mountain style," Wood said in a prepared statement. "This look appeals to the experienced, active lifestyle that is so much a part of Deer Valley."
A popular theme in mountain designs as of late, Wood said, contemporary mountain styles have been a big hit in Park City. Wood said "Fresh Powder" is in a class of its own.
"Fresh Powder draws its inspiration from the simplicity of modernism," she said. "From the organic handspun textiles to the warmth of the wood, there is honesty in the materials."
