Yoga inspired home

In addition to my love for Denver and homes, I also love yoga. I always try to tie anything I am passionate about into my home to personalize it. Yoga is no exception. If you are looking to bring a little of your yoga practice into your home there are a number of great products out there to do just that…
Of course if you have the extra room you can always create a meditation corner or alter incorporating all of these accessories. 

 
Just like any theme you are looking to incorporate into your home you want to find a balance. Balance can be accomplished by a few acccessories throughout the home or keeping the theme in one part of the room or home as to not overload the eye.
If you are looking for yoga related home decor to bring into your home I have found that a great resources are EtsyWorld Market or local home decor stores.

Focus on: Ciy Park

I have a soft spot for City Park since I live so close to it. Multiple times a week I find myself either walking or running in City Park when I need to clear my head. If you have never been to City Park you are missing out. City park offers up a number of facilitates. It boosts a public golf course, the Denver Zoo, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and an IMAX. There is a small body of water where you can paddle boat or fish. People often play soccer or football games in the park when the weather is nice.

There are paths for walking, running or biking. Two playgrounds if you have the kids and need to get them outside. Throughout the year you will find a number of events from bands playing, 5ks and the Colfax Half Marathon and Marathon. In the summer on Sundays there is City Park Jazz where people come out in numbers to lounge, picnic and listen to music to end their weekend.

Denver has a number of great parks and I may be partial but City Park is one of my favorite parks here in Denver. It has also become my favorite backyard. Walking through City Park can feel quiet and you can often forget that you are in the city but in certain parts of the park you can look up and catch a spectacular view of the city and mountains.

 Have you been to City Park? If so, do you like it?

Pink in the Home

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month I thought I would put together some images of pink IN THE HOME. I have never been a huge ‘pink’ girl, opting for a peach color bedroom instead of a pink even as a young girl. That being said, I have seen some great ways to use pink in the home and make it look good. I opt for using pink sparingly in design as I feel even the softest of pinks can make a huge impression but that does not always need to be the case. A room full of pink can work if done right. 

Since I have never used a lot of pink I thought it was interesting to find out the meaning of the color pink:
In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive color inspiring warm and comforting feelings, a sense that everything will be okay.

Pink calms and reassures our emotional energies, alleviating feelings of anger, aggression, resentment, abandonment and neglect. Studies have confirmed that exposure to large amounts of pink can have a calming effect on the nerves and create physical weakness in people. Violent and aggressive prisoners have been successfully calmed by placing them in a pink room for a specified amount of time. Exposure for too long can have the opposite effect.

After reading this it is no wonder the breast cancer awareness ribbon is pink. I always thought the reason  itwas because pink was often associated with femininity but rather it is a sign of hope.

The Rise of the Duplex

 In a world where college prices are rising and employment is low many adults are finding themselves living at home with their parents after school. The American Dream of home ownership tends to get delayed as people pay off college loans that are equivalent to a mortgage payment. One solution that my clients came up with for their grown children living at home with them was purchasing a duplex. It offered the best of both worlds: independence but a home for their adult children. 

Buying a whole duplex in Denver can prove to be difficult though as they rarely have just one owner. Currently in Denver there are only 14 duplexes for sale! Many duplexes in Denver have one owner for each unit.  In Colorado the rules and regulations of a duplex are written up in a party-wall agreement. This agreement is similar to a condo’s HOA but it is between only two parties. It will outline how bills will be split, common areas, insurance and how structural issues will be handled. This agreement is a necessity since most duplexes in Denver  sit on a lot that once housed a single family home so there is only one sewer line and water line. This means duplex owners typically have to split utility bills.

 The party line agreement makes it a lot easier for a duplex to have one single owner per unit. Although, it makes it a little harder for people, like my clients, who are actually looking to be the sole owner of a duplex. It certainly is not impossible though! If you are working with an agent looking for both sides of a duplex, ask how they will work to find you the right duplex.

Creative Idea for the bathroom

Do you have a tiny bathroom that does not offer much counter space or storage? Consider this idea….

A stool offers a little more space for things that would typically be on the counter such as lotion, hand wash and towels.
