NOT MUCH ABOUT MY JOB KEEPS me up at night. This gig is dreamy: I spend my working hours making a magazine full of spaces, people, and ideas that influence and reflect Denver’s aesthetic, as it exists in our homes and public spaces. Searching for and celebrating beauty are worthy activities, and I want our magazine to encourage those pursuits. But sometimes, when I’m flipping through photographs of a gorgeous home we’re planning to publish—the inimitable Colorado light making a dining room glow, the kitchen spotless with a bowl of citrus placed just so, a dog plopped effortlessly on a bed layered with luxurious linens—I get a pit in my stomach. What if, I wonder, 5280 Home makes readers think that we all have to create magazine-worthy spaces before we can…

Kathryn O’Shea-Evans WRITER “Nothing brings more life to an interior space than a beautiful original painting,” says writer Kathryn O’Shea-Evans, who penned three stories for this issue (“Color Guard,” page 25; “Dream Team,” page 32; and “All Together Now,” page 84). “But it has to speak to my soul. At estate sales and auctions, I look for landscapes of a view I don’t have at home, like a non-cheesy ocean scene or rolling farmland in moody weather.” When she’s not on the art hunt, O’Shea-Evans contributes to the Wall Street Journal, Architectural Digest, and House Beautiful. David Lauer PHOTOGRAPHER For architectural photographer David Lauer, the inspiration to buy art is similar to the inspiration he finds in the homes he shoots. “I usually buy a piece because it speaks to me in some way, usually…

“My work almost has a choreographed feel...with a lot of dance parallels.” –Laura Krudener Laura Krudener has style in her DNA: The painter and founder of RiNo’s ATC DEN gallery and event space is descended from three generations of North Carolina textile artisans. “I worked in that industry for 15 years,” she says. “Fashion, textile design, and the stories that color and patterns tell really influence the graphic nature of my work.” Ditto for dance: Krudener trained in various disciplines (from ballet to break-dancing) for 25 years, and applies that background to her new calling as an artist. “My work almost has a choreographed feel and approach, with a lot of dance parallels,” says Krudener, who earned her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute while splitting her time between Boulder…

how to frame art

Good framing is to artwork what good upholstery is to your living room sofa: Get it right, and you’ll elevate everything in the room. Get it wrong and, well, that couch is just a place to plop. According to Tam O’Neill, longtime veteran of Denver’s art scene (she ran an eponymous fine-art gallery in Cherry Creek for 20 years, which morphed into an online shop, and she owns the venerable Cherry Creek Custom Framing), a good frame is the bridge between art and architecture. Here, she shares her rules for selecting a frame that preserves your art and your sense of style. GO LOCAL “A good, locally owned framing shop will work with any budget. You will absolutely pay as much or more at a big-box option for the same frame—and the…

dream team

It’s not easy to find your decorating soul mate, but interior designers Nancy Boland and Martha (Marty) Lord have done it—and the result is their brick-and-mortar residential decorating firm Boland Lord Design, opened in Washington Park in March. “We have the same vision,” says Lord, who met Boland (previously of Duet Design Group) while working at Ekman Design Studio. Often, that vision is a mix of antique and new furnishings—a timeless mélange that can be missing in mid-century-modern-hungry Denver. “We appreciate the modern look, but we love this mix; we’re helping to fill that niche here,” Boland adds. Here, the duo shares a smidgen of their design ethos in five answers. 5280 Home : Give us one design rule. Nancy Boland: Every house needs a pedestal table. I love them! They’re…
