I have lived in Colorado since 1978 and have always loved getting good deals on clothing and fashion. For me though, it was always an long distance to go to the outlets as my options were Outlets at Castle Rock , Outlets At Silverthorne, or the Outlets at Loveland or if I really want to make a trip, the Tanger Outlets in Phoenix where I can go to one of my favorite stores, the Lululemon Outlet store. Well now our outlet options just got better with the new Denver Premium Outlets opening this Thursday. Click here for the full list of stores that will be in this new outlet.
As a Realtor you get to enter through a lot of doors every day! One of my most favorite things about a home is the entry and the door. You never know whats going to be behind that door but if you walk up to it and it’s stunning you know it’s going to be amazing inside.
One of the projects I loved doing when I was remodeling my home was designing a new front door ( Shown in the photo below). The door that was on my current home was not inviting and needed a facelift badly. My husband, Jay Modglin and I found a company in Colorado who built doors by hand and we started designing our new front door. For all the details on this project visit our family blog at Modglin Collective.
I really enjoyed working on this article for Denver Style Magazine and so excited to share it with you. Click the photo below to go to the full issue of DSM.

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 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.
