He ended up being “the one”.

If You Could Live in A Book, TV Show, Or Movie What Would It Be and Why?

The Bible, specifically during the the Roman Empire.  The Roman Empire was the human political entity that God used to prepare the world for the birth of the Messiah and for the spread of the gospel.

Interior Design Trends for Fall

I can't believe I'm writing a post about fall in August, but its' just around the corner and I feel like Halloween and the holidays will be here before we know it.  And just like with fashion, with the cooler temperatures comes new styles and ideas on how to spruce up your home for the chilly months ahead. 


Velvet: Its no wonder velvet made the top of the list, as we saw it in fashion everywhere last winter. Velvet is a great way to create a cozy but sophisticated look. There is an abundance of velvet pillows, quilts, and accent pieces on the market right now. Try them in moodier color palettes like navy, dark pinks, and jewel tones. Or for the ultimate rich fall look, mix velvet with leather by throwing some velvet pillows on a leather sofa.

Navy Blue: Navy is not just for trends, but a timeless color you won't regret. Because of its darker shade, its perfect for fall and a great substitute if you don't want to over do it with black. Not to mention, it goes with almost any color and is just as versatile. Try a navy accent wall, some of those velvet pillows I mentioned, or switching out a rug for a dramatic look.

Textures: What better way to make your home more cozy than by adding texture? Not just textiles like chunky wool blankets and pillows, but textured art, wood accent pieces, baskets, or even tiled backsplashes can create more texture and soften a home. Try using that jute rug from spring for a layered look like this:

New Neutrals: Although grays and blues will always remain timeless neutrals, you can put them away for the chiller months ahead. Warm neutrals like tan, caramel, chocolate, and even white are making a comeback from the "beige days" of the early 2000's. Just make sure your whites are warm rather than cool tones. Just like with the Texture trend, try adding some wood pieces, baskets, linen textiles, or worn leather into your space.

CRUSH Walls: Art Festival September 3-9th in Denver's RiNo District

CRUSH Walls is a week-long celebration of graffiti and street art. This annual event is free to the public and is for all ages to enjoy this curated outdoor gallery. With artists painting, activities for visitors, special promotions throughout the neighborhood, there is something for everyone at the CRUSH WALLS in RiNo's signature graffiti and street art festival.

If you have never been to Denver's River North District, or RiNo, CRUSH is a great opportunity to experience all that RiNo has to offer. Set north of the South Platte River and LoDo, the one-time warehouse district has seen unprecedented expansion in the last 6 years, as new apartment complexes, restaurants and bars have transformed its landscape. With twelve years experience in the loft market, I can tell you how much I have seen RiNo change. I remember when warehouses like the Benjamin Moore building went from abandoned to new, residential lofts and can offer my expertise when buying or selling in this neighborhood. 

I’ve had a love of RiNo before it was actually called RiNo and have seen it grow into a diverse neighborhood that has sparked creativity and collaboration so you can live, work and play. This year, myself along with four other brokers from Kentwood City Properties will be sponsoring part of this experience by supporting the CRUSH WALL Festival. Follow along through our social media channels via Instagram and Facebook @DenverChitChat. 

CRUSH Wall's Highlights:

  • Opening party – September 4 at the Juxtapoz Clubhouse, from 7PM to 10PM

Hiking In Colorado!

Garden of the Gods Loop

Difficulty: Easy • Length: 4.0 Miles • Duration: 1-3 Hours

Garden of the Gods is a four star rated hike that is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This trail is not only family friendly but dogs are welcome too. Large rock formations that are the center of the loop are visible from all parts of the trail. This path give you the feeling of being among the rocks.


Raspberry Mountain

Difficulty: Easy • Length: 6.0 miles • Duration: 1-3 Hours

Raspberry Mountain is a pleasant hike with a wide and smooth trail. For the most part, the trail is shaded by Colorado Spruce. At the summit you will enjoy a 360-degree view of Pikes Peak and the Catamount Reservoirs. It’s very likely that the only people on this trail will be you and those you brought with you.


Meyers Homestead Trail

Difficulty: Moderate • Length: 5.2 miles • Duration: 1-3 Hours

Meyers Homestead Trail is a five star rated hiking trail located southwest of Boulder, Colorado. The late spring and early summer yields an abundance of wildflowers and in the fall it’s not uncommon to see small herds of elk along the hike. Meyers Homestead holds interesting historical significance and signage along the trail point out historical ecological points of interest.


Blue Lake

Difficulty: Moderate  • Length: 5.3 miles • Duration: Half Day

Blue Lake is located in the Roosevelt National Forest near Ward, Colorado. This trail provides excellent views and pictures of wildlife and flowers. Along the way you will encounter many streams, small ponds and eventually end up at Blue Lake with an incredible view of the Continental Divide. Blue Lake is above the timberline, so dress accordingly.


Mount Bierstadt

Difficulty: Moderate • Length: 6.9 miles • Duration: Half Day

Mount Bierstadt is the perfect beginner fourteener. It is an easy day trip and dogs are welcome as long as they are on a leash. This hike offers incredible views of the front range mountains at a very moderate pace.


Devil’s Thumb Pass

Difficulty: Moderate-Difficult • Length: 13.3 miles • Duration: Full Day

Devil’s Thumb is a wonderful hike if you are up for the 13 mile journey. There are much shorter routes to the pass but none offer the type of experience you get on the 13 mile route. On the hike itself, you will ascend nearly 2,400 feet due to the length of the trail. Make sure to bring plenty of water, snacks, and any other provisions needed because this is a full day hike.


Hall Ranch Trails (includes Bitterbrush Trail & Nelson Loop Trail)

Difficulty: Difficult • Length: 5.9 miles • Duration: 1-3 Hours

This trail is good for advanced cyclists and hikers. It is very strenuous and if you are riding a bike, be ready for steep climbs and rapid descents. There is plenty of wildlife and scenery on the trail. Dogs are not allowed on this hike!


Hanging Lake

Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult • Length: 2.4 miles Round Trip • Duration: 2 Hours Round Trip

Hanging Lake is a short hike to two waterfalls and one of the most beautiful lakes in Colorado. On the same hike, you can explore Spouting Rock Falls, and even walk behind the waterfall. It’s not a day hike near Denver, but it’s definitely worth the nearly three-hour drive to the Hanging Lake Trailhead just outside of Glenwood Springs.
