Slifer Designs

Edwards, CO

Slifer_logo.jpgGrowing up in southern Colorado, Yvonne was exposed to living in the West and all it’s glory. She learned early on in life to have a deep appreciation for the natural world and will always incorporate these elements into what she designs. Her Great Grandmother was a huge influence in her life, she was part Navajo Indian and was a true artist and craftswoman…creating was in her blood as it is in Yvonnes.

She has been in the Interior Design business for over 20 years. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in interior design from Colorado State University she moved to New York City and worked for the renowned firm Cullman and Kravis. Yvonne had an amazing experience and learned the fine art of stylish living that a New York client expects.

Her Colorado roots were calling her back, so after 7 years in NY she made the trip back ‘home’.  Yvonne has been with Slifer Designs in Edwards, Colorado for over 15 years, she truly felt in sync with what Beth Slifer started and was drawn to Slifer Designs for its ease in creating luxurious yet livable spaces. We strive to create a setting for family and friends to relax and enjoy together, a timeless place to accumulate memories for years to come.

Over the years she has been published in Colorado Homes and Lifestyles, LUXE magazine and Aspen Magazine. She has worked on 100’s of residential projects over the years – from remodels to ground up 15,0000 square foot homes. She has completed projects all over Colorado, South Dakota, New York, California, Nantucket, Mexico, Canada and Florida. She has also been part of our Hospitality team and have participated in projects like the Roaring Fork Club (ARDA winner), The Ritz Carleton at Aspen Highlands (ARDA winner), Peterson Management, Liberty National Bank, Slifer Smith and Frampton Real estate offices and the Chateau lobby in Beaver Creek.

Yvonne is a member of the Design Leadership Council, ASID and sits on the board of the Bright Future Foundation and the Vail Valley Foundation. She is deeply rooted in the community and strongly believes in giving back.

Yvonne's number one design philosophy is to create a home that is truly a reflection of the person that is living in it. It is a tasteful reflection of a client’s personality and creates many wonderful memories for a family and actually improves the lives of those living and visiting the space. The design process is enjoyable to her and she strives to give the same experience to every client.
