here comes the sun

There’s a reason so many people choose to uproot their lives and move to Colorado. Our sunny state offers endless opportunities to escape the daily grind and snag a front-row seat to nature’s splendor—whether that be by zipping down a ski run on a powder day, dancing into the wee hours of the night at Red Rocks, or, my personal favorite, hiking into the woods for an unplugged summer weekend. But, as the homes featured in this issue suggest, enjoying the outdoors doesn’t have to come at the cost of enduring standstill traffic on I-70. On the following pages, we peek inside a number of creatively designed urban spaces with seamless indoor-outdoor connections, including an open-air pavilion in Cherry Hills Village (page 28), a charming backyard oasis in Littleton (page 48),…

in bloom bloom

Jessica Sparzak doesn’t do weddings. It’s not that the founder and designer behind Pickletown Flower Co., a mobile floral studio, isn’t a fan of The Big Day (she’s been happily married for almost 19 years). Rather, she thinks blossoms should be a quotidian joy. As she puts it: “I may not be the florist for your one special day, but I’m the florist for your every day after.” Sparzak fell root over stem for flowers while living in New York City, where one of her regular walks took her through the Flower District. “The city changes: There are flowers and plants and shrubs spilling out onto the sidewalks,” she says of the area. The scene inspired her to start crafting bouquets for her nonprofit employer’s events—and she quickly found her calling.…

escape to the east

Who among us hasn’t dreamed of soaking up Colorado’s glorious sunny days in a secluded outdoor room? (Vistas! Fresh air! No dirty dishes in sight!) With help from Boss Architecture’s co-founder and principal Chris Davis, a couple living on a three-acre lot in Cherry Hills Village made that fantasy a happy reality by adding a handsome pavilion to their property. “From here, you can look back at the house, or out toward the property’s landscape,” Davis says of the 15-by-35-foot outdoor room positioned on a manicured lawn to the east of the couple’s low-slung, modern home. It’s a middle ground—“a place to reflect,” he says—which the homeowners and their guests access by walking alongside an 80-foot-long koi pond, then crossing a small pedestrian bridge that leads over the water and…

black beauty

Take a stroll down this charming, historic street in Baker, and it’s hard to miss the new(ish) kid on the block: a bungalow with a monochromatic black facade and immaculately xeriscaped lawn amidst a row of vibrant painted ladies. The 100-year-old home’s otherwise unaltered exterior maintains its original architecture, but hints at the daring style of its owner—and a hidden, ultramodern addition on the back. The bold design choices come courtesy of architect Morgan Law and designer Noah Manos, principals of the envelope-pushing design firm Paper Airplane. We asked the duo about going big with a historic home makeover. paperairplanedesignco.com 5280 Home: Let’s get right to your boldest design move: that all-black exterior. Noah Manos: A monochromatic exterior has become one of the hallmarks of contemporary design. We thought that applying…
