And The Winner Is…

So many of the homes we feature in this magazine are worthy of our Home of the Year title. Picking one is extremely difficult, which is why we’ve taken to publishing the Home of the Year as well as our top finalists.
If there’s one quality that captivated us about the winning 2018 Home of the Year: Elevated Simplicity, it would be its humility. Yes, it’s bigger than a lot of homes we feature, but it doesn’t present that way. It’s welcoming and calm, and has a bit of Huck Finn adventure out back thanks to a “jumping-off” dock and swimming hole. Kudos to Hufft architects of Kansas City, Missouri; Miranda Cullen of Duet Design Group; and Newmyer Contracting, Inc.
All of our finalists are featured in the June/July 2018 issue, as well. Included in that list is a showstopper from Forum Phi in Aspen: Humble Cabin, Big Finish. It’s a major “wow” that starts small by preserving its miner’s-cottage roots. There’s also an art-filled Denver home from Chalet (An English Country Manor in Denver) and a modern farmhouse from HMH Architecture with a striking interior design by Ashley Campbell (A Denver Home a Decade in the Making).
There is so much to see in this issue that you would do well to give it some delicious lounge time. Martha Stewart offers help in the garden, Kathryn Ireland talks us through her outdoor-decorating philosophy, and original RiNo resident Sharon Brown displays artwork that would grace any Colorado wall it found.
A special thanks to everyone who shared Home of the Year submissions. And a happy summer to all!
