Spring2022

Margaret Wolfe Hungerford said “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” but I wonder if true beauty is in the heart of the artist. It’s not the end result that determines the beauty, but the intention, journey and choices made to get there, and in all those small (or large) decisions is a boldness to follow intuition, enjoy the messy journey, and stand firm in the choice. There’s a natural admiration for fearlessness, bravery, and confidence, and that can come to life in so many different ways. In this edit ion, we’re going to celebrate boldness and all the beauty that comes from it. Our homes can serve as a canvas for our individual style, and designing boldly showcases confidence and assurance. Those daring choices often lead to conventionally beautiful h omes, but more important is the beauty of the boldness. Fearless choices in home design make a statement:that you’re not afraid to march to your own drum, go slightly against the grain, or embrace the unexpected.

Fall2021

As I walk barefoot out onto our deck just as the sky is turning pink over the Eastern horizon, I watch the silhouette of our majestic Steamboat mountain come to life as the sun rises. I admire the awesome beauty of the contrasting mountain and valley views, and I breathe deeply as the fresh air fills my body and soul. This simple ritual of mine grounds me for the day ahead, preparing me for whatever is to come. I imagine that so many of us have our own ways of reveling in the fresh mountain air of the Yampa Valley and many of us create our own spaces to enjoy the various reasons we call this place “home”.

In this edition of HomeLink, we take a breathtaking exploration of how to live and love our Yampa Valley.

Winter2020

As we welcome 2021 with open arms, the change in calendar begs us to take stock of what 2020 has taught us. Unforeseen challenges and unprecedented fears have reshaped our beliefs, views and livelihoods. Never before has the inextricable connection of home, community and planet been more evident, as it has changed how we live our lives. As our inner circles tightened, we’ve changed how we come together both in our homes and communities. While challenging, many blessings came from 2020, and we can take those learnings into the new year.
