Kiva Style: Former Tipi Residents Build a Rammed-Earth Home

Working with earth, wood, glass and crystals, Tom and Flame Lutes have created a truly sacred space in the Colorado high country.

Flame embellished the couple’s fake fur bedspread with silk ­flowers, a whimsical touch that turns the ordinary extraordinary. To make the bedspread, simply find fabric you like; because you need only a couple yards, you can even look for remnants. Stitch on the decorative element of your choice, be it silk flowers or beads.
