Kitchen Flooring Trend: Follow the Red Brick Floor

We have about one more month of summer left and because school is starting, my mind is starting to think sweaters, leaves, fireplaces but it's still 90 degrees everyday and the dogs are shedding like they're in a competition (Nelson, the lab mix, would win).  I am so tired of the fur in the house.… Continue reading Kitchen Flooring Trend: Follow the Red Brick Floor

Create a Mood: Put a Lamp on It

I love lamps in lonely places.  A small lamp can add magic to a dark bookcase, an old desk, a kitchen counter, a dusty bar cart - really any odd corner of your home that looks unloved and has an outlet nearby.  That last bit is important.  We have a small, awkward entry (but at… Continue reading Create a Mood: Put a Lamp on It

Street Photography I love street photography and this caught my eye recently by Denver photographer Kevin Mohatt.  I am fascinated by an unplanned, un-staged moment caught in time.  The great photographer and artist William Klein once said, “Be yourself. I much prefer seeing something, even if it is clumsy, that doesn’t look like somebody else’s work.”… Continue reading Current Sensibility

Taking Things Away = More Gained

We started our own "Big Dig" in our backyard since I last posted and I knew it would be a lot of work - but I had no idea how truly large our yard would seem once we removed everything from it.  My friend Joyce happens to be a Landscape Architect and she's been helping… Continue reading Taking Things Away = More Gained

7 Colorado Artists to Watch (and buy from!)

We are going to start tearing up our dense jungle of a backyard this week and I feel excited but nervous.  Excited that the long local nightmare (our yard) is over and nervous because maybe I am just a terrible gardener and once we get things looking nice, it will revert back to a jungle… Continue reading 7 Colorado Artists to Watch (and buy from!)

In Praise of Traditional Kitchens

How's your Spring?  We had measurable snow this week in Denver and I'm here to say it's not lovely BUT at this point I still prefer it to 90 degree weather this time of year.  I like to ease into the heat of July and August. I've been working on stepping away from the phone… Continue reading In Praise of Traditional Kitchens

Kitchen Trends 2019: Dark and Moody Vibes

This is a busy time of year for my business - things typically are a little slow after Christmas into February and then they pick up just in time for warmer weather.  Unlike other years, I've had quite a few clients booked well in advance for starting this spring and summer, which is great. I've… Continue reading Kitchen Trends 2019: Dark and Moody Vibes

Spring Trends for the Home: Color is Creeping Back In!

Happy end of April everyone!  How is your Spring going?  I am alternating between feeling confident and on top of things to forgetful, exhausted and overwhelmed.  It's been fun.  If you ever hear me tell you "Hey, I've decided to start a _____ (Fill in the Blank)" reach out to me and suggest a meeting… Continue reading Spring Trends for the Home: Color is Creeping Back In!

Before and After: A Ranch Home with Abundant Natural Light

Happy April!  I'm feeling refreshed from a week off.   We went to Los Angeles for the week and I can see why millions of people live there.  The weather was phenomenal; the art, plants, beaches, hillsides, neighborhoods and restaurants were diverse, interesting and quite vibrant.  I came back feeling inspired by the casual California… Continue reading Before and After: A Ranch Home with Abundant Natural Light
