a sense of place

WHEN WRITER PETER MOORE first told me about the barn in his Fort Collins backyard, he wrote, “This is not a Smithsonian/Martha Stewart eye-popper. Rather, [it’s] a surprise labor of wood-lust that swept over us once we realized what a gem we had on our hands when we bought our home.” Moore—who had moved to Fort Collins from Philadelphia with his wife, Claire—went on to explain how saving the dilapidated, century-old structure had somehow, almost magically, given them roots in a new city. By investing in an old barn and making it useful again, Peter and Claire tied themselves to the history and the future of their newly adopted hometown. Peter’s essay (“Barn Again,” page 32) has me thinking about all of the reasons we renovate and invest in our homes,…

Q WHAT’S THE KITCHEN PRODUCT YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT? Susie Brenner PHOTOGRAPHER “I’m married to a northern European, so our Chef’s Choice International Electric Tea Kettle is very important in our kitchen,” says architectural photographer Susie Brenner. “It definitely gets the most use of all the appliances.” For this issue, Brenner shot a kitchen her husband might love: a tailored, sage green space inspired by Old World style (“Rooms That Really Cook,” page 70 and on the cover). Brenner’s work has recently appeared in regional interior design magazines and the Arteriors catalog. Peter Moore WRITER Peter Moore was the editor of Men’s Health magazine before he realized a life-long dream to live in Colorado. Now a Fort Collins resident, he whips up purees and smoothies with his beloved Braun Immersion Blender—but more important, he makes his…

the fixer

Where do you go when you spill wine on your white Ligne Roset sofa? Or when you tire of the faded velvet on your grandmother’s bergère? Straight to Colleen White, who moved her furniture upholstery and restoration shop, Timber and Cloth, from Brooklyn to Denver in 2017. White tackles everything from wood refinishing and reconstruction to full custom builds (she also sells furnishings and accessories via her Etsy shop @TimberandCloth), but her specialty is transforming vintage designer furniture. “Danish and midcentury [designs] are the big draws for me,” White says. “I saw a lot of them in Brooklyn, so I got pretty good at them.” That said, her portfolio spans the style spectrum, from a French Provincial settee (pictured)—which she gutted, re-sprung, sanded, painted, and then upholstered in a mauve…

warm fuzzies

Chances are you’ve seen—and fallen in love with—those super-chunky knit blankets that have been popping up in home-goods shops and catalogs for the past year or two. But if you’ve actually snuggled up with one, you’ve likely also noticed that their beauty can be fleeting. The problem, according to Denver textiles expert Camille McMurry, is that many of those blankets are made from delicate wool roving (unprocessed wool), which tends to fall apart—and shed like a Persian cat. Lucky for us, the former fashion buyer—who first noticed the chunky-knit trend while planning the fall/winter knitwear collection for the English brand Jaeger—has a solution: hand-dye and felt the raw wool into yarn first, then knit it into luxurious (and much more durable) blankets. When McMurry created her technique—and her Denver-based business Broadwick…

dwell well

At the new Lakehouse condominium complex in Sloan’s Lake, there are perks you see—floor-to-ceiling windows in penthouse units, a juicing station, a sauna—and perks you don’t see, like a sophisticated air-filtration system and mold-killing ultraviolet lights in the pool. These elements, and dozens more, are part of a growing effort to boost buildings’ contributions to the health of their inhabitants. At the helm of the movement: the International Well Building Institute, or IWBI, a corporation that’s set guidelines to help architects design residences, offices, schools, and more with wellness in mind. Denver’s Nava Real Estate Development, the team behind the Lakehouse, was the first in Colorado to register with the IWBI under the multifamily track—and they hope to prove just how luxurious a healthy building can be when residents move…
