A Modern Mountain Model Home in Park City
A model home. Once typically a beige box, now model homes often genuinely showcase the possibilities of the space. Such is the case in this Park City model, designed by Barclay Butera Interiors. We talked to Barclay himself to learn more.
What sparked your interest in interior design?
In my early years I was lucky to work for my mother who is also an interior designer and did a lot of work in the model home industry. Many people don’t know this about me, but I actually went to law school prior to opening my own design firm in 1994. I quickly learned that career was not for me, and went back to work for my mother. I truly started from the ground up, sorting fabric samples and tracking orders. The knowledge that I learned and background in design while working for my mother is what gave me the confidence to start my own firm. I also attribute my work ethic to my mother and all those days working alongside her. She is still designing to this day!
