Good Design Fits the Neighborhood

Gypsum used to get a bad rap in the design world – but no more! There’s been a building boom taking place. and we’re thrilled to be part of a team that is bringing good design down valley.

Starting in spring of 2015, the Villas at Cotton Ranch broke ground with 13 units in phase one. These duplexes and triplexes sold out quickly and phase two, consisting of 14 more villas, broke ground this fall.


Kim Toms, senior designer and interior fixed finish expert, curated the design specifications that include tiles, wood flooring, countertops and cabinets for bathrooms and kitchens. Although the look is definitely high end, Kim noted that she worked within a very set budget, creating a strong value for the dollar.

“This was a fun project to work on, being able to create a few specs and stick within a budget,” Kim said of the project. “Jeanne and JT Landroth, the developers, and I agreed quickly on the overall design… and I’m glad to see that so many people have responded strongly to the aesthetic.”

The kitchen and baths have the feel of luxury with large tile and clean lines. Italian cabinetry, an open floor plan and spacious rooms make these homes sought after. Phase three is next up; once all phases are complete, there will be 72 homes on 11.6 acres in Cotton Ranch.

Everyone loves a master bedroom that feels like a retreat.  Subdued colors and large windows make this room bright and cozy.


Almost every home these days needs a home office for telecommuting – it’s no different in Gypsum.


The cool, contemporary fireplace ups the ante in the living room. The tile surround is sleek and an awesome focal point. The open concept continues right into the dining room for ease of flow.



The Villas at Cotton Ranch are priced between $375,000 and $439,500.
