A House Versus A Home

A house is not a home until the interior design is set and the personality of the house is displayed through trinkets, knickknacks and family photos. At least, that’s what I used to think.

Expert Says

When a 6’2” man and a 5’6” woman look through the same window from the same place, they might not see the same thing. This has nothing to do with gender, everything to do with perspective and is just one of the nuances to consider when buying a vacation home in the mountains.

The Next Frontier

“Closets are very much an afterthought when it comes to a home,” says Jill Downing, a lead design consultant with California Closets’ premier Design Studio in Cherry Creek— the first of its kind for the custom storage company.

#DesignDecoded

In honor of Spring’s imminent arrival, this week’s icon of design is…Eero Saarinen’s Tulip tables and chairs! Crazy name, crazy furniture.

Those days are over since learning a valuable lesson of why you should NEVER peel gel nail polish off (I’ll let your imagination fill in the…

Patience Makes for a Prideful Home

Pointing at the scratched and clawed siding, worn shag carpet or the overgrown back porch, he’d start by saying, “One day…” Almost 15 years later, standing in place of that ragged, 1970s-built duplex is a 6,700 square foot, mountain modern, single-family home that was not so much bought or built as it was created by years of fiercely intentional planning…

Day to Night

It all started with a pancake, explains Brian Cohen, co-owner of the new downtown restaurant/marketplace Stella’s on 16th. While traveling in LA, Cohen and his wife, co-owner Dawn “Stella” Cohen, were savoring pancakes at a local breakfast joint when they had a flash of inspiration: They could do the same thing, but bring it home to the heart of Denver.…
