Heidi Sherratt discovered her passion for interior decorating almost by accident. The former Crested Butte restaurateur and town administrator started Interior Visions in 2004 after she “had a ton of fun” designing the home she and her husband, Scott Bogart of Pinnacle Construction, built.
“After that, I was helping clients of my husband’s who said, ‘Why don’t you do interior design work?’” Sherratt explained.
At that point, the lightbulb went on for Sherratt and she went to school to get an associate’s degree in interior decorating.
One of Sherratt’s recent projects won a national award from Kitchen & Bath Design magazine.
The building was a dilapidated, 100-year-old storage shed, located behind Slogar’s Restaurant at 517 Second St. in Crested Butte, owned by Megan and CJ Clark. With the help of Freestyle Architects, Blueline Builders, and Sherratt, it was turned into a charming, 500 -square-foot vacation villa.
Sherratt said the direction for the design was a mix between making it look like an old miner’s cabin and a European cottage. Materials used included salvaged wood, light-colored cabinetry and countertops, stainless faucet, and alabaster glossy backsplash.
“Few spaces have undergone as dramatic a transformation as this,” the magazine stated in its August design awards issue.
