1. The Carter Showroom at the Denver Design District. Owner Deb Kunert has an eye for quality and sophistication, curating lines that celebrate true craftsmanship. Her newest furniture line, Dmitriy & Co., is a longtime favorite of mine. dcarterinc.com, dmitriyco.comdenverdesign.com

2. Printed and sewn in the U.S., Biscuit Home bedding has the softest sheets and unique, feminine designs, not to mention a monogramming service to add that touch of personalization. biscuit-home.com

3. My newfound morning ritual: a cup of coffee made the old-fashioned way using the pour-over method. I stopped by Corvus Coffee on Broadway for a lesson. They grind their beans perfectly and sell a scale that is the key to a perfect cup of joe. corvuscoffee.com

4. The Simple Tote from Clare V. is the perfect bag for carrying measuring tapes, notebooks, interiors magazines and fabric swatches. And Clare V.’s new wallcovering collaboration with Los Angeles-based Wallshoppe makes a statement. Simple Tote, $495; clarev.com

5. I get a million compli-ments every time I wear my Skull Cashmere sweaters from Perch, and my collection grows by the year. Skull Sweater, $220; Cherry Creek North; cherrycreeknorth.com/go/perch-denver

6. I recently purchased  works by ceramic artist Chris Antemann and photographer Kendrick Moholt. Antemann’s porcelain figures are exquisite, while Moholt captures her scenes in a modern and intimate way. robischongallery.com, chrisantemann.com, kendrickmoholtphotography.com

7. My Emerson slides from Emerson Fry New York. I have two pairs from this family-owned, small-batch clothing company that is absolutely the tops for quality and style. Emerson Slides in Leopard, $238, emersonfry.com

8. I have a collection of Robert Piguet fragrances, but Fracas Eau de Parfum is the one I go to five out of seven days, $150, nordstrom.com

9. Once a month I stop into one of the antiques stores along South Broadway for that unique find. Watson & Co. has gorgeous tapestries that frame beautifully, as well as the best collection of Edison bulbs in the city. watsonandco.com

10. For bath and kitchen accessories I go to Waterworks. Although some think Waterworks sells only classic tile and faucet fittings, they also carry a wonderfully curated collection of “smalls,” like the pedestal at left, that add a level of sophistication to your bath. waterworks.com
