5 Easy Ways to Add Character and Charm to Your Home

As I write this, heavy snow is falling in Denver.  I was going to write about something practical today, like window coverings, but I absolutely can't do it on a single degree, snowy day in February.  SO - this week I'm writing about one of my favorite topics - how to add charm and character… Continue reading 5 Easy Ways to Add Character and Charm to Your Home

Kitchen Design Trends for 2019

Happy last week of January!  I'm writing this on Monday which, to refresh your memory, is the day when forecasters predicted 1-3" of snow in town (No big deal!  Light snowfall! You won't even notice it's there.) and we have a good 7" outside.  To be more helpful, it all came down during the morning commute.… Continue reading Kitchen Design Trends for 2019

How to Hire an Interior Designer: 9 Tips from a Designer

I get emails and phone calls every week from potential clients who have never worked with an interior designer before.  There is usually nervousness about the process and some pre-conceived notions about who I am and how I work.  I know I feel nervous having another designer over to my own home so I can… Continue reading How to Hire an Interior Designer: 9 Tips from a Designer

Denver Kitchens: A Year in Review (Part 1)

Happy New Year!  I'm writing this on a bitterly cold (but sunny) new day in 2019.  I am a reflective person, but I'm not much of a backwards looking person and I think there is a difference.  One of my many self-preservation skills is a lack of desire to dwell on the past.  I think… Continue reading Denver Kitchens: A Year in Review (Part 1)

Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen Design: Products, Furniture and Art

Happy week before Christmas!  Are you still listening to holiday songs?  I had a brief flurry of listening with my family right after Thanksgiving and then it's been right back to alternative rock and podcasts.  I've never been one to drive around listening to Christmas music, but I know a lot of people who are… Continue reading Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen Design: Products, Furniture and Art

Life Turbulence around the Holidays and a Book Review Podcast

How is your end of the year going?  I only ask because, for me, this December is rocky and frankly, unpleasant.   It's rocky because the stress is peppered with good things for me career-wise.  I feel like I'm experiencing a lot of turbulence with some extended stretches of smooth flying.  Let me tell you, the… Continue reading Life Turbulence around the Holidays and a Book Review Podcast
