Denver Modern Driving Tour

August 11, 2011

I love reading the incoming search terms on the website. I’ve been seeing lots of incoming traffic for “Denver Modern Houses Driving Tour” and other derivations. I hope that means that lots of people are coming to Denver for the Denver Modernism Show at the end of the month. Or, maybe our modern loving Denverites […]

Well, maybe we’re not completely to AFTER yet. Maybe more “in-progress” pics. But, when I tripped on some of our back yard pics before we started the addition. Big difference. I do miss having trees and we planning five fruit trees and a big shade tree right by our office. Notice I’m only showing pictures […]

It’s been a challenge tackling our house projects with Tim traveling to Hong Kong and China 1-2 weeks every month. I think we’re headed into month 18 of that routine? So, sometimes I try to keep projects moving when he’s gone. I don’t always do so good. It’s hard to be motivated when you’re alone. […]

When 5280 Magazine interviewed us a few months ago and asked for our favorite Denver mid-century modern vintage resources, Lee Alex Decor was definitely on our list.

In the 5280 Magazine article, we got to share our favorite vintage shops in the Denver area. One of my regular “haunts” is ModMood-Retro Consignment out on 44th in Wheat Ridge. The consignment side of the shop is huge and has a lot of turnover. I also like that they don’t restore or improve anything […]

Favorite Google Search – “mid century modern crown molding”

August 4, 2011

I love looking at the stats on my blog. I can see the exact search terms that people enter into google that eventually land them on my blog. I’m just a tiny blog, but it’s still entertaining. I just saw someone find my blog by googling “mid century modern crown molding”. Really? If you typed […]
