The Color of Love

Angie and Mark Maxwell open the doors to their unique, eclectic Jeffersonville home

Some creative people are so flexible in their talents, it seems they can do anything. To me, that describes Mark and Angie Maxwell to a T.

The couple’s love of art and music floods their Jeffersonville home. The extensive outdoor living space that includes an in-ground pool and a separate entrance to accommodate Angie’s home business has become the ideal home where family memories are created through their shared love of the arts.

For the Maxwells, it is important that their home be their haven – an oasis from their busy lives. Mark relishes his role as lead singer of The Louisville Crashers along with being the owner of Maxwell’s House of Music, while Angie juggles her home business of Angie Maxwell Makeup Artist/Licensed Esthetician. (This writer commutes from Louisville just to get one of her spray tans.) Most recently, they launched Maxwell’s House of Fitness, where Angie is an instructor and the manager.

But back to their home. Each room features something unexpected and unique. The warmth and colors showcase Angie’s other passion, interior design. She created spaces that designate privacy for both of their occupations along with areas where they can relax, unwind, and hang out with their fur baby, Lampchop.

“Some would describe our home as eclectic or whimsical,” shared Angie. “My goal in decorating was to make it vibrant yet cozy. After all, this is our shelter away from the world.”

Family photographs on color canvases decorate aqua walls in the family room. Tray ceilings add a touch of drama. Vibrant pillows adorn a plush, oversized sofa – found while vacationing in Savannah, Georgia – that is accompanied by a faux fur ottoman. Angie used wine corks to frame the fireplace, adding a playful touch to the room. Her creativity is displayed everywhere you look. Quirky art pieces – like the penny covered torso Angie created – add elements of surprise.

“This seems to be the place where everyone gathers the most,” Angie said recently while standing in the kitchen. Bright orange walls are decorated with family mementos and art created by her grown children, Cruz and Remington. Distressed cabinetry boast stylish hardware. Stools are tucked under a spacious island brightened by pendant light fixtures. Tile countertops are complemented by a tin backsplash while mismatched, upholstered chairs surround an angled farm table that plays host to many family gatherings. A door leads out to the covered “boho” porch that provides an optimal view of the lush landscape, including the inviting pool and a garden that her son Cruz planted as a Mother’s Day gift a few years ago. Angie loves the round, hanging bed with pillows, which is one of their favorite spots to relax. Colorful cotton scarves are used to frame the space. A playful chandelier accentuates the ceiling that features a whimsical sky motif.

The lower level is full of fun and surprises. A story wall showcases brightly painted canvases highlighting special family moments. The theater room is revealed by a “magical” bookcase that doubles as a secret door where only one book unlatches it.

Obviously, music plays an integral part of their lives, so it was fitting to have a space dedicated for rehearsing and creating. Guitars and a flat screen television line the wall in Mark’s rehearsal man cave. Comfortable seating is provided by an accent chair and sofa. Empty frames add a creative display to the charcoal walls.

“Our home is colorful and quirky but feels warm and inviting,” Angie reflected. “Colors are mood changers. There nothing stuffy about our home, and it is a true representation of who we are as a family.”
