Rockwood home makes cover of Western Living Magazine

A dreamy, colourful and texture-rich bedroom graces the cover of the May 2017 cover of Western Living Magazine. It’s contemporary, yet warm and comfortable, just like the rest of this awe-inspiring manse. With traditional undercurrents, this home is a balanced blend of the modern and classic—a perfect example of Rockwood’s signature style.

Western Living’s May 2017 (Alberta edition) cover feature speaks to this contemporary, cool home that has both style and swagger. Its sleek, almost retro style (in select rooms), has a distinct Hollywood hills feel, and you’d likely be surprised to find that it’s located on four acres in Calgary’s southwest community of Aspen.

For this masterpiece, Rockwood not only completed the interior design and collaborated on the architectural design with DeJong Design Associates, but we also custom built all of the furniture. The home features a fantastic mix of hip textiles (including furs and rich velvets!), steel, wood and rock. Wood paneling and detailing is heavily used in most every room, the staircase in particular is ultra modern and stylish with its steel and solid wood panels.

Commissioned art works served as inspiration for much of the home’s design: sleek, high-gloss, bold and contemporary. Modern accents abound in every room – everywhere you look there are glass, acrylic or textured pieces that capture your interest. From funky light fixtures to retro quilted couches with fur throws, every room features something uber unique. And just wait until you see the 3,000-bottle wine room…

It’s no wonder that Western Living chose to profile this spectacular Rockwood home as its May cover feature.
