Hi there - how has your week been? My experience with time this week has been like I got on the fast train on Monday and still haven't arrived at the destination. My daughter started middle school and that has unexpectedly thrown my mind for a loop.

I may have mentioned (ahem) on a few social media accounts that I had a kitchen I designed featured on Remodelista this week in an article entitled "Trend Alert: The Cult of the Blue Kitchen, 10 Favorites".

On last week's post, Modern Farmhouse Revealed, I shared more photo's from one of the kitchens I designed that was recently published in Colorado Homes & Lifestyles September/October issue. This week I have the magazine in hand (see my cheesy photo above) and have an excerpt of the article as well as a few behind the… Continue reading Suburban Kitchen turned Modern Farmhouse: Press and Behind the Scenes

However, I keep seeing light, rustic wood popping out in different places and I am all in. One thing I've noticed recently in terms of Denver… Continue reading August Obsessions: Pale Wood, Monbento Boxes and Leon Bridges
