Happy New Year, friends!
We are back at work here at Move 2 Denver and we are feeling very good about it! Well, except for the weather outside! While we are renewed, excited and ready to help many families find their perfect home in 2015, we would love to have a little bit more of sunshine and warmth here in the Denver area! It’s been 3 weeks of frigid temperatures, snow and darkness and we can’t help but wonder: When is summer coming back to us? While we are dreaming of white sands and warm waters, here is a fantastic home tour to help you start the year just right:
This gorgeous home was originally posted on Design*Sponge and when we saw the pictures we were drooling! I mean, Corsica has been on our list of dreams trips for a long time now and add that to the fact it’s so cold here… We were dreaming awake!
If you want to learn more about this home and check out more pictures, visit Design*Sponge!

Have a wonderful 2015!
Since we have started planning our honeymoon I have started a long search for gorgeous beach towels Made in America! My two current favorites are from Tabula Rasa NY (I love their name) and these beauties were manufactured in Charleston, South Carolina and are 100% cotton!

Wouldn’t they look amazing to lounge at the beach?
Have you seen?
Wallpapers and a gorgeous wooden cabinet Made in America?
Continuing with our series “Made in America” (have you see the first post about wallpapers yet?), today we are bringing to you this amazing Delano Cabinet, via Room and Board and made in Wisconsin! We are in love with it! In fact, this is one of the pieces in our wedding registry!
It’s one of the very few pieces that make storage look good!
The simple, clean look of each Delano cabinet is a tribute to mid-century modern design. Handcrafted from solid wood and carefully selected wood veneers, Delano offers a beautiful mix of materials with its stainless steel base.

Over here, at Move 2 Denver (and at home too!) we are constantly searching for art that will make our walls sing! I end up rotating my favorite pieces with new ones every season or so and our gallery wall always shows our mood for that moment! We have done our rounds at Etsy and created a virtual gallery wall with amazing art we love!

Obviously, my mood reflects the nature that’s around me here in Colorado.
I love featuring Colorado homes here in the blog! This one today is special, it’s a fantastic green home (their energy bill is only $9/month!), built in Boulder by architect Renée del Gaudio and her family after the 2010 Fourmile Canyon Fire that destroyed 162 properties in the area, including the structure the family was leasing to a college student!
This is a fantastic story about overcoming a tragic event and coming out on the top, with their heads held high!

They savaged construction lumber from the burnt trees in the property, planted seeds for native grasses and wildflowers, used green windows and a lot of glass to use the natural light as much as possible and installed solar panels!
Doesn’t that sound like a dream project? It’s in my bucket list!

We are starting a new series on the blog today! It’s about home furnishings and design made in America! We want to focus on products that were conceptualized and/or created, manufactured in the US. The idea is that, these products, in special, are created with the American home owner in mind, it will translate the design aesthetic and culture of America and offer something that looks amazing and feels close to home!
To start today, the brand new line of wallpapers launched by CB2, from the Crate and Barrel group, based in Chicago, IL that are modern, with classic touches, and just look incredible! Wallpapers have made a huge comeback in the past few years and we are in love!
Leafy branches flourish in a bold botanical design by Chicago-based artist Noël Ashby. Capturing the liveliness of a tree, graphic silhouettes pop in red/orange on light grey. Good news for renters: a self-adhesive backing makes this wallpaper removable.
Painterly trees take root in a modern forest by Chicago-based designer Noël Ashby where metallic gold branches grow graphic on cream. Traditional paste wallpaper is designed for long-term use (adhesive not included).

My favorite has to be the aqua/minty one! I’ve been dying to use wallpaper here at the Move2Denver offices. I might go for the mint, that matches our logo! What do you guys think?
Would you use wallpaper in your home or office?
We would love to hear from you!
Imagine a kitchen created based on a Ladurée macaroon box! It’s gorgeous and mint! We are in love!
