How to Use Color in Your Home to Get What You Want

Okay, maybe color won't get you what you want.  BUT, maybe it will!  Who's to say?  If you're feeling positive about life because you woke up in a room with colors that make you happy, maybe you'll get the job you wanted.  I'm going to gush about color again this week because I'm still feeling… Continue reading How to Use Color in Your Home to Get What You Want

Mid-Century Modern Renovation in Denver

I finished this project over a year ago and waited until Modern in Denver published it this Fall to show you.  At first it was hard to wait, and then I forgot about it.  I think that describes a lot of waiting on things that you think you want.  At first it's hard and then… Continue reading Mid-Century Modern Renovation in Denver

Trend Alert: Lilac for Days

I was at a job site this week talking with some contractors and we were bemoaning the fact that color is coming back.   We were joking - kind of but not really.  White walls are easy.  Painting everything Simply White (one of my favorite whites) is an easy decision for a homeowner.  There's no… Continue reading Trend Alert: Lilac for Days

Bath Me in Paneling: 9 Gorgeous Paneled Bathrooms

Welcome to the end of August!  It's been a week of back to school for most of Colorado and, even though we survived another intense heat wave, I can smell and see autumn in the air.  If autumn has a sound I'll never know because a Biblical amount of cicadas hatched recently and they sound… Continue reading Bath Me in Paneling: 9 Gorgeous Paneled Bathrooms

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

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!
