Anyone familiar with my blog knows my love for Colorado jewelry superstar Shawn Hecox, one half behind The Woods Fine Jewelry; I borrow her pieces for photo shoots, and shop for my clients and my self. In our current culture, where it seems the norm to borrow* from other people’s ideas, creativity, and hard work, Shawn and… [Cont.]

Those who enjoy fashion know that most of its seemingly arbitrary ‘rules’ are not relevant to our modern world. I’m sure they applied to the more formal times from which they came, but today’s style is fluid and flexible and any stylist worth her designer shoes will tell you, ‘rules’ are for breaking. However,  the other night… [Cont.]

5 years ago when I started Mile High Style, the color grey was first breaking into the mainstream as the next big thing. Replacing the tired tan and that outdated yellow-y cream, I’ve used some shade of light grey* in nearly every interior project, loving the results. Grey walls look modern and calm and go with every… [Cont.]

I recently began work on a living room redesign for a client that is exacting, impatient, and impossible to please: me. You might assume that working in the world of interior design, I would love redoing my own space and want to regularly switch up the design, but nothing could be further from the truth…. [Cont.]

The Cool Shit

Without a doubt, putting the finishing touches (aka ‘the cool shit’) in a room is my favorite part of the design process- those unique and sometimes one-of-a-kind pieces are what make your space different, and cool, and yours. Living in NYC, you practically stumble onto cool shit on the regular, but in Colorado, despite our reserves… [Cont.]

There’s no denying it anymore- style has come to Boulder and it’s here to stay. With the rebound of the economy and new retail acquisitions like Cedar & Hyde, Nod & Rose, and Alpine Modern, you can no longer open a competitive retail business with minimal attention paid to the design.

I’m currently finishing up a family room re-do (pictured) that has raised the issue of big picture decorating, something that I anticipate with every project. What is big picture decorating?

I can remember, vividly, when Marc Jacobs-helmed Louis Vuitton released their collection designed by Japanese contemporary artist, Takashi Murakami. Seeing the staid, iconic Vuitton logo reimagined as a rainbow of youthful, poppy fun made me crazy with bag lust; to this day, I don’t think I’ve ever wanted anything more. But over the next year,… [Cont.]
