Recreating that feeling of a real fireplace

BOULDER COUNTY – Close your eyes for a moment and imagine you’re sitting around a campfire with friends or family high in the mountains. It’s late and the summer evening is dark and crisp. The conversation fades as you find yourselves lost in thought and gazing into the dancing flames. The crackling of the embers and the sparks rising from the fire create a magical and playful effect. Let yourself go there right now. How would you describe that feeling? Peaceful? Relaxing? Soothing? Inspir

Unwanted visitors left by the flood

BOULDER COUNTY – The aftermath of flood left many homes with uninvited guests. Flying lazily about the home, tiny bugs are taking over, drifting around our heads and causing otherwise calm people to start flailing their hands in front of their faces, grasping at what seems to be thin air in an attempt to squish the pesky insect. Two types of bugs are plaguing our homes: fungus gnats and phorid flies. To many, they look the same, but they live very different lives. If you’re bothered by c

Still, that bag was much too nice to throw away. But what to do with it? I turned to Pinterest, one of my favorite time-wasters, for ideas. Yes, I get paid to d

Praise for high quality and low maintenance at Calmante in Superior

Calmante in Superior

SUPERIOR – When considering a move to a new community, it is rare good luck to hear the opinions of homeowners already living there. Such a valuable resource exists at Calmante in Superior. In 2009, at the onset of the economic recession, construction at Calmante was halted after only 10 of the elegant townhomes were completed. Since then, Calmante has been a kind of Sleeping Beauty, quietly waiting to be brought back to life. Boulder Creek Neighborhoods, the original builder, is now the proud
