Denver Eater: Novo Coffee Roasters Ready to Open Its Downtown Location

crosbierealestategroup

NovoGalleryHead.jpgNovo Coffee Roasters is very close to opening its retail location at 1600 Glenarm Street, downtown Denver. The coffee shop anticipates serving by next week. This will be the only retail location of the local roaster after a previous retail location in the Denver Art Museum was closed over a year ago.

The 1000 square foot space was designed with assistance from Open Studioand graphics by Rick Griffith. The space is modern with high ceilings, concrete floors accented by graphics, dark and natural-colored woods, and black and white walls. The accent color is blue and that is present both in the espresso maker and in some of the stools used in the space. Reclaimed materials were used in the build-out, including wood sourced from a high school in Boulder that was transformed into the bar top, table top, and the wall display behind the bar.

Keep it Clean | Denver Blogger Finds

makeup-categories-view-all-956x286

As a conscious consumer I am always looking for ways to keep our household products, food, and beauty brands organic as well as eco friendly. Awhile back I found Juice Beauty  and it’s been a wonderfully fulfilling love affair ever since. After researching just what I was putting on my skin and into my body with some of the name brands I was using I decided it was time for a radical change. So, I dumped the toxins and embraced the world of products made from natural ingredients. My skin has never looked or felt better because of it. I also feel that I am setting a good example for my daughter as well. My next purchase will be from their Stem Cell Repair line in hopes of repairing some damage caused from too much time in the mountains.

Go For It | Tips from a Denver Stylist

Image

 

I have yet to meet  a client yet who has not asked me how to go about mixing prints & patterns and add pops of color into their neutral wardrobe. So here is my answer – JUST GO FOR IT! Don’t be scared there are no fashion mishaps that will land you on a style black list destined to bad 80’s hair for all of eternity – two words frosted highlights! How to experiment with the trendy almost neon hues that are everywhere this season?  SHOES! 

If you still are unsure of what patterns mix well within your own wardrobe – comment with a question and I will do my best to put you on the path of mixing it up like a pro!

5 Ways to Incorporate Vintage Pieces In Your Home…

This is my idea of a perfect room – a bit of old with some new. Lovely

RECLAIMING YOUR CASTLE

There is a delicate balance between adding used vintage pieces in your home and having your living room look like it was transplanted from the staging area at Goodwill.  Balance.  It’s something I’m still trying to master but in the end, adding vintage pieces to your home bring a character and depth that you just can’t find at your local Rooms-to-Go.  It can be tricky but it’s worth trying to figure out – you’ll end up with better quality furniture and you’ll have something cheap and trendy to brag about when your friends stop by.  So, win-win.

Here are 5 Ways to Incorporate Vintage Pieces In Your Home…

#1.  Look for Solid Wood

If you come across a vintage piece of solid wood furniture, chances are it’s worth refinishing.  If we’ve learned nothing else from HGTV we should at least know this, right?  Paint it, stain it, cover it with wallpaper…the possibilities are endless.  Look for pieces…

Oh my goodness!

I came across the news that Orla Kiely is launching a new melamine range. I especially like the stackable storage containers. The perfect accompaniment for a picnic…when Spring finally decides to arrive!

Chalkboard Paint…Fussy or Functional?

RECLAIMING YOUR CASTLE

Chalkboard paint is everywhere…and on everything.  This crafty little paint has worked its way from the classroom into our living rooms, and our kitchen walls and furniture – it’s all over the place!  Is it a passing trend or a new staple in home design? 

Here’s what I think; the flexibility of chalkboard paint is awesome.  If you use it on your walls it allows you to be creative and fun; changing up the theme of your bedroom or den with the swipe of an eraser.

One of my favorite applications is the chalkboard wall in the kitchen.  I love this one because it’s practical – shopping lists, phone messages, weekly dinner menus and calender events; it’s functional and trendy.

The same applies for the home office; it’s much harder for your husband to tell you he’s forgotten to pay the water bill when the due date is written on the wall behind his…
