Welcome to the HTML page about Free Modification Inc, Denver Interior Design
Create an environment that reflects, Who you were, Who you are, Or who you want to be now.

Free Modification Design, Inc. was created in 2000 in Denver, Colorado. Free Modification means utilizing changes to create environments so you can live in many different worlds during your lifetime. You can become suddenly interested in antiques, when you used to love only minimalism. You cannot imagine being surrounded by any other color than white and using only modern furnishings.

Design is an incredibly important part of everyone’s lives. Almost every item we pick up, or sit on, or gaze upon, or turn on was created by another human being. Studying the spaces before beginning a project, seeing how rooms flow and how space is used, seeing how light moves throughout a space, and understanding clients allows any type of design to progress.

Modifying an idea enables one to create endless possibilities. Being aware of the environment and designing for the future is of the utmost importance in design. Respecting the environment, respecting the planet, and respecting the incredibly talented architects in the world that are creating wonderful, safe, sustainable projects is part of the goal of Free Modification, Inc.

Modern - Mid-Century - Contemporary

I am Marrion Irons, owner of Free Modification, Inc.

I moved to Denver in the early 1980’s after working for an outdoor advertising company painting signs and billboards. I then moved to fabulous Los Angeles for a number of years, and am back in Denver
(which is fabulous in its own way).

When living in Los Angeles, I was employed by Princess Cruises as the assistant to the design director while going to school for the U.C.L.A. Interior Design Program. Given the opportunity to learn from great instructors, and being exposed to many design concepts and ideas, plus living in a city that is so rich in color and diversity, my creative talents began to flourish.

Upon moving back to Denver, I became an associate with a wonderful design firm that worked with clients who preferred a more traditional style. Eventually realizing that I needed to take another avenue in design, I decided to start my own design firm in 2000.

Having a talent to create fun, lively, sophisticated, comfortable spaces for clients, I always keep in mind each and every client’s needs, wants, and dreams. Given the chance to think about a new space and work outside of my comfort zone allows me to work with a client to help push them out of their comfort zone a little. Or a lot. Traveling to other cities and countries has given me wonderful insight into what each project can become by integrating the varying design styles I have seen.

I have always had a love of art, design, and the sense of recycling products. I strive to re-use items to create new pieces, re-design existing furniture, or refinish older furniture and items. The integration of antiques can make an environment especially unique, even if it is ultra modern. I encourage green design and always try to integrate some sort of environmental awareness into each item I purchase or design. I am very gay friendly! I also like pets, children, and good people.

My design skills allow me to design projects in all areas, including new construction, remodels, residential design and décor, office design and décor, furniture design, faux finishing and general interior painting. I treat each project the same: attention to detail, respect for the client’s wishes, and excellence in design.

I have designed homes in Denver, Aspen, Ft. Collins, Boulder, and other cities throughout the state of Colorado. I have also worked on projects in California. The experience I can bring to a design project will be worthwhile to anyone wanting a unique, personal, comfortable, enticing space or product.
