Aspen Leaf Interiors Design Studio & Gallery unveils new space in Truckee

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. – Truckee/Tahoe interior design firm, Aspen Leaf Interiors, unveiled its new design studio and gallery in Truckee. Owners Marcio Decker and Betty Scott first opened Aspen Leaf Interiors in 2004 and created the Aspen Leaf Interiors Design Studio & Gallery earlier this year. “Our goal for the design studio and gallery is not to make a showroom as much as it is to create a space that is comfortable and inspiring, a space that encourages creativity and new ideas,” said Decker. “We wanted to get away from the idea of selling a set style of furniture for every home, in turn opening the minds of our clients to new styles and looks they may not have seen before, proposing a unique design for each home.”The 850-square-foot space features numerous vignettes with a wide range of styles, textures, materials and looks. But perhaps the most exciting aspect of the new space is the introduction of Decker Fine Arts. Adorning the walls are several of Decker’s original paintings – large-scale acrylic works with bold colors and geometric shapes that exhibit contrasting compositions of impulse and control, spontaneity and precision. Decker’s paintings have been shown in Brazil, Colombia and New York and his latest collection recently returned from a year-long show at a gallery in Miami. In addition to Decker Fine Arts, the new space also displays distinctive repurposed pieces. “We’re playing with the concept of upcycling,” said Scott. “It’s the process of taking old or retired items and reviving them to increase their value and make them fashionable again. Not only is it eco and green, but it makes for some very exotic pieces while still being affordable.”Decker and Scott’s vision for Aspen Leaf Interiors Design Studio & Gallery is to not only design spaces, but to improve clients’ quality of life. They approach each project with innovative and creative ideas, not a cookie cutter solution. Aspen Leaf Interiors Design Studio & Gallery is located at 10075 W. River Street, Ste. B, Truckee. The studio is open Monday through Saturday by appointment. For more information, visit http://www.AspenLeafInteriors.com.- Submitted to aedgett@sierrasun.com
