MY HUSBAND AND I are sitting on the couch, binge-watching yet another BBC series on Netflix, and his phone dings to let us know he’s gotten a text. I check my watch. It’s 9:52 p.m. “Who’s that?” I ask. After-hours communication makes me nervous: Doesn’t all bad news arrive when we’re supposed to be asleep? (That’s how it happens in BBC series, anyway.) “The sprinklers,” he grins. He flips the phone to show me, like our kindergartener holding up an art project of which he’s quite proud. Sure enough, the message says that because of rain in the forecast, the system will skip the scheduled watering cycle. “Our sprinklers text you?” I ask. “Since when?” He explains that he upgraded the sprinkler controller to a system called Rachio, which connects to Wi-Fi and has…

Q WHAT’S YOUR NEXT HOME RENOVATION PROJECT? Arunas Kacinskas ILLUSTRATOR Designing the opening illustration for “Alexa, Design Me A Home” (page 35) got freelance graphic designer and illustrator Arunas Kacinskas thinking about his own ideal work space: “I would love to live in an industrial-style loft,” says the Lithuania-based artist, who adds that he would like to create a home office with a wireless sound system and a large, modern desk and chair near a window for maximum natural light. Kacinskas works for editorial and commercial clients, including the New York Times, IBM, Google, and Toshiba. Cheryl Meyers WRITER “I’ve been looking for a simple weekend renovation project to do at my house and have decided to replace the mailbox,” says Cheryl Meyers, 5280 Home’s editor-at-large. “My poor old mailbox, original to the house, is a…

puta ring on it

When Heather Ng, owner of the Niwot-based jewelry business Bohemi, started making her perfectly imperfect clay nesting bowls, plates, and ring cones, they were only meant to be display pieces for the juried craft shows where she sold her handmade baubles. But after countless customers asked to buy them, the designer teamed up with her friend Efong Yee, a high-school ceramics teacher, to develop Bohemi’s first collection of ceramic accessories. ¶ Ng’s designs, which feature watercolor-like glazes and shimmering gold and silver accents, strike a balance between trendiness and timelessness. “I want to create elegant designs that have staying power,” she says. Her efforts yield delicate, eye-catching vessels that enhance the jewelry displayed on them—and function beautifully as objets in their own right. bohemi.com…

true grit

It takes about 10 seconds to figure out that Kirsten Coe isn’t your typical interior designer. A true Western girl with a cool, boots-on-the-desk vibe, she talks about gumption, hard work, and chasing “wild” ideas. Her mission is to make great design—“and more importantly, design thinking,” she says—accessible to everyone, which is why her full-service Denver firm, Lasso Design, tackles even the smallest of projects—from “a floor plan for the rockstar DIYer who needs help with their IKEA kitchen” to full-scale renos. “If there is a design problem, it will generate a fierce curiosity that drives the project,” Coe says. “Even the smallest ones take effort; there is no ‘easy button’ to good design.” We sat down with Coe to discover what’s inspiring her now. lassodesign.com 5280 Home : How does…

fixer uppers

When husband and wife Patrick Neely and Kerri Cole first stepped inside the 21-foot-long aluminum-clad trailer that would become “Bonnie,” the new empty nesters were just looking for their next fix-and-flip project. Neely, a jack-of-all-trades who has rehabbed everything from houses to vintage cars, had started fixing up unconventional spaces—shipping containers, a RoadRunner camper—when the Denver market got too hot for flipping houses, and Cole, a professional stylist for national advertising clients and local magazines (including this one), was happy to lend her skills to his endeavors. But once she saw this 1969 Airstream Globetrotter cleared of its rodent residents (it had been sitting unused near Fairplay for more than a decade), she knew this was one fixer-upper she couldn’t bear to sell. Luckily, the tiny trailer offers just the right…
