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

Seeking Comfort in the Fall of 2020

I usually love Fall and all that comes with it, but this year I am not in the mood. I hung up our vintage Snoopy Halloween flag, dusted off my hands and retreated back into the home to sneak another Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. I'm a little depressed and lethargic. The pandemic is dragging on,… Continue reading Seeking Comfort in the Fall of 2020

Reimagining the Denver Square

“Give me an old house full of memories and I will give you hundred novels!” ― Mehmet Murat Ildan This 1908 home is situated adjacent to City Park, Denver's largest park and one of the city's oldest urban spaces. When I first walked into this home, it had been partially gutted and I felt the age of… Continue reading Reimagining the Denver Square

Before & After: 70’s Split Level Kitchen Transformation

Hello 1970's split level!  I like to think that this was a beauty back in the day, but that day was a distant memory when I saw it.  Popcorn ceilings, imitation stone floors, builder grade cabinetry and asbestos riddled walls dominated the main level of the home. The clients both love to cook - the… Continue reading Before & After: 70’s Split Level Kitchen Transformation

Current Sensibility: Kitchens for People Who Don’t Have Time to Cook

I design kitchens for a living and I have not had time to properly prepare a meal for myself and my family in quite a while.  I bought myself an Insta-Pot as an early Christmas present and, for better or for worse, I've been using it like it was the last appliance on earth.  I'm… Continue reading Current Sensibility: Kitchens for People Who Don’t Have Time to Cook

Before & After: A Warm, Modern Kitchen

I'm excited to share this kitchen with you!  This kitchen renovation floated along with very few hiccups.  I tend to work mostly on homes that are 60 plus years old and this home was built in 2006 - a young buck!  In contrast to the 110 year old homes that are my usual wheelhouse, recent… Continue reading Before & After: A Warm, Modern Kitchen

Before & After: Uncovering Secrets in a 1904 Denver Square Kitchen

This kitchen is in a 1904 "Denver Square", which is known as a "foursquare" everywhere else in the country, but here in Denver we like to label things as our own.  For example, the "Denver Omelette" is really a "Western Omelette".  If anyone can think of something else that Denver (or your home town) has… Continue reading Before & After: Uncovering Secrets in a 1904 Denver Square Kitchen

Before & After: Classic Kitchen in Denver

Is anyone else in the Denver area fantasizing about moving to Kaua'i or Florida's Gulf Coast this week?  Just me?  Winter weather before Halloween is ridiculous; it's unfair and it's making me have general regrets.  Our town sent out an email reminding everyone to shovel their walks for the trick-or-treaters.  Severe cold in October causes… Continue reading Before & After: Classic Kitchen in Denver

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

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
