Are you too old to buy a home?

Many baby boomers never bought a home in their younger years and some baby boomers lost their home in the 2007 to 2012 recession. Baby boomers were born between 1944 and 1964, making them between 55 and 75 years old this year. Those baby boomers are now in their retirement years and are asking, “Am I too old to buy a home?”

Living lightly, with a view from the top

Nestled just below the crest of Sugarloaf Mountain sits a home that will rock your soul. From the moment you enter, you feel serenity. Maybe it’s the unmatched southeastern Flatirons view that dips gracefully down the canyon and into Boulder Valley. Or it could be the home’s open lines and passive energy use that whisper “relax.”

Get the look: Organic modernism

If you haven’t heard of organic modernism yet, then get ready – it’s about to become your favorite design trend. It all started in 1941, when the Museum of Modern Art in New York hosted a show titled Organic Design in Home Furnishings. The furniture featured in the exhibition brought together crisp, modern design and natural elements. Now, this trend is reemerging, covering entire rooms in clean lines, curved furniture and the healing power of nature.
