While Vail has spent decades becoming a world-class destination for international visitors, Slifer Designs has established itself as a leader in residential interior design. This year marks 35 years for Slifer Designs — it’s a true milestone for what is now one of the most renowned interior design firms in the United States, and one that comes with a fresh round of accolades including the Mountain Living Legacy Award, the Luxe RED Award for Contemporary Interior Design, and runner up for Colorado Homes and Lifestyles Home of the Year. 

Slifer Designs has changed how people view resort design globally, yet the company’s focus has never left their home of Vail, Colorado. It was 1983 when Beth and Rod Slifer were a newly married couple starting their life in Vail.

Back then, Vail wasn’t the luxury destination it is today— the town was filled with spartan, poorly designed cabins. But Beth Slifer had a vision for what Vail could become, and led the charge not just in shaping Vail’s appearance but in turning the town into the international leader for resort interior design.

Over the next decade, Slifer Designs added staff and quickly grew to be the preeminent interior design company in the Vail Valley, with showrooms in the Town of Vail and Denver. After purchasing a 20,000 square foot warehouse just west of Vail in Avon, Slifer Designs became a full service design firm. Their team of dedicated white glove professionals receives, inspects, and installs every object that makes its way into a Slifer Designs home.

In the years that followed, Slifer Designs started to take on projects coast to coast and internationally, and is now one of the most reputable firms in the nation with award-winning residential and commercial interior design. The company has developed an unshakable reputation in the industry, well known for working with architects, builders, sub-contractors, vendors, and clients alike to create an environment where beautiful designs come to life. 

The element that truly makes the difference is the Slifer Designs team. From project management to accounting to the interior designers to the warehouse crew, Slifer Designs has refined a streamlined process that gives customers the highest level of design experience, professionalism, and service.

Slifer Designs’ philosophy has remained unchanged over its 35 years: design should be as unique as the clients themselves. The design team begins every project with a discovery process, where they seek to learn about the client’s story and their vision for the space. They take this inspiration and weave it into the design, to make sure that the finished project is as individual as each client. This extra care and detail means that clients see themselves in the finished product, and have a home that is a perfect match to their lifestyle.

“With 70 percent of our projects coming from repeat business, it’s fair to say that our people make the difference,” shares Beth Slifer. “Customers come back again and again to work with our team.
