Before & After: Littleton Ranch Home Remodel

We recently wrapped up a remodel of a kitchen and living area in a beautiful ranch home near Old Town Littleton. The remodel was one of the smoothest I've been on EXCEPT for the lead time on the double ovens. Some appliance brands have lead times for over a year right now. As a word… Continue reading Before & After: Littleton Ranch Home Remodel

Images to Stave Off Thoughts of the End of the World

It's the driest Spring on record in the Denver area and we've been having these incredibly dangerous windstorms. It seems like every other day the National Weather Service is telling me there's a Fire Weather Advisory for my locale. Fire Weather. I'm a big fan of climate fiction and I just started a booked called… Continue reading Images to Stave Off Thoughts of the End of the World

Vintage Bathroom Inspiration: Green and Black Tile

This week I've got another round of vintage bathroom inspiration. What I like about this style is it's bold and easy. You don't have to hunt down a certain ceramicist for a particular tile glaze, you don't have to do a whole lot of soul searching to design this type of bathroom AND it will… Continue reading Vintage Bathroom Inspiration: Green and Black Tile

Vintage Bathroom Inspiration: Red and Pink Tile

I had the pleasure of touring a circa 1904 home here in Denver with original millwork and one original bathroom semi-intact. I love dilapidated beauty and I love original home details. The site visit was so invigorating I walked away with the key in my pocket and had to go back the next day and… Continue reading Vintage Bathroom Inspiration: Red and Pink Tile

On My Mind: Vintage with Color

Worn and warm (Photo Source) Artist Luke Sciberras's home It's December of 2021 and this was a tough year for me and, not to assume, but I'm sure it was for a lot of people. Coming out of 2020, I thought 2021 would be amazing, but it turns out you can't just emerge from 2020… Continue reading On My Mind: Vintage with Color

Kitchen Design: A British Invasion

I've been slowly reading/savoring a coffee table book called May I Come In by Wendy Goodman. It's a book with interiors that she's photographed from the past 30 years and it reminds me of the feeling I would get from thumbing through a House & Garden back in the days before Instagram and Pinterest. As… Continue reading Kitchen Design: A British Invasion

Get Your Color On!

Note that sky blue ceiling with the gorgeous wood paneling! (Source) Lately painting or papering ceilings is everywhere you look and I love the bright, robin's egg blue of the ceiling in the sushi restaurant above. I also love the giant sconces on the wall that look like flush mount lights just mounted as a… Continue reading Get Your Color On!

Turning a Craigslist Dresser into a Sink

This end of summer heat we're experiencing has thrown me a little. Nelson, the lab mix, is shedding like it's July and every day I sweep up snowdrifts of fur from the places around the house where it likes to settle. I've been having fun decorating the new addition in our home but that's been… Continue reading Turning a Craigslist Dresser into a Sink

Little Pink Houses: Adding on to a 1930’s Home

It's more green than I remember seeing in a while in the Denver area. My eyes drink up the color when I'm on my walks like I've been living in the desert for a while. Things will turn brown soon enough, but there's something so healing about coming out of the intense Covid Era and… Continue reading Little Pink Houses: Adding on to a 1930’s Home

Before & After: A Mountain Modern Kitchen in Morrison, Colorado

Mountain modern rolls off the tongue really well but I'm not sure what I expect when I hear those words. I think modern has a lot of different possibilities but when I think "Mountain Home," I think wood grain. I'm a big fan of wood planks, wood floors, wood tongue & groove - give me… Continue reading Before & After: A Mountain Modern Kitchen in Morrison, Colorado
