Location: Denver, Colorado
My husband and I moved to Denver from Chicago almost 2 years ago. It was an adjustment going from big city life to a smaller town vibe with the necessity of a car. But, we love the sunshine, mountains and west/southwest decor style. I have quickly adopted a love for western textiles and ceramics.
We have also been MCM fans for years and many of our pieces are from thrift shops, flea markets and estate sales. We splurged on furniture pieces that should last for years. The sofa is Room and Board, the orange arm chair is from CB2 and the blue Eames chair is from DWR.
We live in a generic apartment complex but made it home by switching out the dining table hanging light and painting above the fireplace. Since we plan on buying a home in the next year, we don't want to do too much painting or cosmetic edits that will require lots of repairs prior to ending our lease.
The TV credenza is an IKEA hack, easily made from a bookshelf, wood and tapered legs. The apartment is 998 sq feet. 2 bed, 1 bath with tiny laundry room (such a luxury coming from communal coin laundry in Chicago).
