They were in town to screen their new film La La Land, which also stars Ryan Gosling. The film is a hauntingly beautiful tale of love in the city of angles amidst dreams of...Continue Reading!
Blue is quickly taking center stage in home decor as the go-to hue for focal walls ... I have the pleasure of seeing a number of beautiful homes throughout the week as I show prospective Buyers available homes throughout Denver. The trend that I've noticed most notably is that blue is taking center stage in wall color. Blue has a very calming effect, so this trend isn't all that surprising given that our homes are our sanctuaries. Gray has been on trend for awhile, but the...Continue Reading!

Why do we tend to focus only on interior shots when it comes to real estate photos I love to entertain, but unfortunately I haven't had as many summer parties as I would like. So, I invited some friends over for a garden party to enjoy the end of the summer. Before the guests arrived, I snapped a quick photo of the yard before our evening under the stars kicked off. The photo turned out to be the only one I took all evening, but captured the...Continue Reading!

This was my first visit to the Newman Center, also known as the Tramway Building, located at 13th & Arapahoe just across the street from the main...Continue Reading!
The best party in Cherry Creek North ... This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the Cherry Creek North Food & Wine Festival featuring the best restaurants in the area. The red carpet was literally rolled out at the VIP entrance with glasses of champagne waiting to help attendees kick off the event in style. I would suggest going the VIP route because it gives you early access to the event before the crowd fills in. Oh, and did I mention the...Continue Reading!
Halcyon Hotel is officially open for business! Halcyon (Hal-cy-on), is defined by ancient legend as a bird who nests at sea during the winter solstice and is believed to have calming powers over the waves. As such, birds are a constant theme throughout the hotel. They are even wrapped on the hotel’s Vespa & courtesy Land Rover! The Halcyon is a welcome addition to Cherry Creek North community. The neighborhood has been a shopping destination for years with boutiques and high end retailers dotting the streets. It is...Continue Reading!
Last week I attended my Company's annual summer party at Coors Field, which seems even more apropos, as our new Cherry Creek office is located in the heart of Cherry Creek North in the Adolph Coors Foundation building located at 215 St. Paul Street. The night started like any other night, except that it was a case of being in the right place at the right time ... While chatting with some co-workers, I was asked last minute if I would like...Continue Reading!
