Even if I LIVED in Denver, I think I would stay at The Queen Anne once a month…just for the delicious made-to-order breakfast with all local, organic ingredients! (and the uber-comfy beds are such a delight…) Last time I stayed, Innkeeper and Art Curator (and one of my favorite DIY Designers), Baily Rose, made me the most finger-lickin’ good breakfast burrito I’ve ever had. Hands-down.
Owner and Gourmet Chef Milan Doshi is one of the nicest guys around, and I feel honored to have three big murals in their beautiful Inn, and a suite decorated with my Colorado landscapes! (I’ve written more about this awesome Eco-concious Bed & Breakfast on Elephant before!)
Now the Queen Anne is only getting cooler by working with more local artists and adding more custom artist-designed suites!
Tran and Josh Wills help visitors find the “other” Denver at the Queen Anne Bed and Breakfast
Tran and Josh are part of a small army of Colorado artists and designers who’ve been enlisted by inn manager Baily Rose to recreate one room or suite in the Queen Anne Bed & Breakfast on the edge of downtown Denver in the Clements Addition Historic District. The fashion-forward couple met that challenge with gusto: For visitors coming to Denver from other cities, they wanted to design a room that would also serve as a map of Denver’s culturally offbeat side.
“This is sort of a dream come true for us,” Tran explains, as we look around their suite-in-progress, which now includes a dramatic black-walled bedroom and a living area featuring Josh’s free-form pop-culture murals and edgy artwork by up-and-coming Denver artists. Tran is preparing to hang a disco ball in a window on the vaulted attic ceiling, while she and Josh, who is seated at a desk area set off by a large, graphic Stendig wall calendar, plot their next steps. They look right at home amid the drying paint and step ladders.
And here are a few more great pics of The Queen Anne. (pics courtesy of The Queen Anne Bed and Breakfast)
