MY KITCHEN AND I HAVEN’T always been what you’d call well-acquainted. Early in my adult life, I considered a bowl of cereal to be a reasonable dinner. I enjoyed cooking once every few weeks, but once I satisfied that desire to whip up a meal, I didn’t want to start the process all over again the next evening. I often said, “I love dinner. I just wish it didn’t come every night.” Fast-forward 15 years, and I’m usually happy in the kitchen. What changed? I learned to appreciate good, homemade food—and how valuable it is for my health. I also now have two children, and while they would love cereal for dinner every night, I want them to enjoy the benefits of wholesome food and the distinct joy that comes from…

Christine DeOrio WRITER When 5280 Home associate editor Christine DeOrio isn’t writing (“Coastal Chic,” page 72; “Once More, With Feeling,” page 88; and “All Set,” page 136), she’s likely in the kitchen baking something sweet—or doing dishes. To make clean-up more fun, she’s collected a stash of reusable Swedish dishcloths. “They work brilliantly on everything from countertops to mirrors, come in cute patterns, and dry quickly so they don’t get smelly and breed bacteria—and you can wash them in the dishwasher or washing machine,” she says. “I order mine from Three Bluebirds (threebluebirds.com).” Emily Minton Redfield PHOTOGRAPHER Veteran photographer Emily Minton Redfield has seen hundreds of kitchens in her career (including the farmhouse-inspired and updated Tudor versions she shot for “Colorado Kitchen Confidential,” page 80). And while she always finds something to admire—“I loved that…

a cut above

When David Larabee, one of the designers behind DoubleButter furniture company, made three wooden cutting boards as a gift for his wife, Megan Hudacky, he couldn’t have foreseen how far that gesture would go. After admiring the modern, geometric boards, Hudacky—founder of Denver interior design firm CKY Design—suggested the pair start a side business. The result is Laradacky (a mashup of the couple’s last names). Larabee’s creations—crafted from solid maple, walnut, or cherry—are beautiful, but they’re not just decor: “They look like fine furniture, but we want people to really whoop on them,” Larabee says. Bonus: Three percent of Laradacky’s annual proceeds go to nonprofits the couple loves, including Good+ Foundation and Resolve, which means each board is a handsome, functional, and meaningful addition to your kitchen. Prices range from…

rewriting the rules

When you arrive at an event embellished by Denver calligrapher Hannah Howard, you’re greeted by a handwritten welcome, rendered in lyrical, looping script. “For me, calligraphy is a way to say there’s a place for you; that you’ve been thought of before you even showed up,” says Howard, who began honing her organic lettering style in college, later perfecting it while working as a stylist and event designer in Louisiana. When she landed in Colorado two years ago and entertained the idea of launching her own calligraphy and styling studio, Ink & Root, she made a pleasant discovery: Denver had saved a place for her. “My style is a bit more modern and whimsical than some of the other [local] calligraphers,” she says, “which is why a lot of people told…

beyond the envelope

Personalize accessories and gifts. Using a colored acrylic marker (Howard favors the DecoColor brand, in gold), embellish everyday items and gifts—think backpacks, journals, and coffee mugs—with your kids’ or friends’ names or initials. Write a mirror message. Using a white acrylic marker (and a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for any mistakes), pen a favorite quote or message on a mirror in your home. “It’s such an easy and affordable way to incorporate calligraphy into your space,” Howard says. Spruce up casual dinners. Simple touches, such as place cards for your guests or a sign announcing the evening’s meal, are “great ways to add a bit more thoughtfulness to your table.” Hand-letter a chalkboard wall. “If you’re hesitant to cover a whole wall with chalkboard paint,” Howard says, “paint one square and hang a…
