The Top 15 Home Stories of 2018

A countdown of the most popular home features this year



2018 has already come and gone, seemingly faster than the years before. Luckily for us, there was no shortage of fabulous home and lifestyle content to share with our readers this year. 12 months, eight issues and countless online stories made for a particularly chic 2018, and we're ready to recap your favorite stories this year. 

The most popular 100 articles published on Colorado Homes & Lifestyles in 2018 range from lifestyle stories—like our interview with Queer Eye's design expert Bobby Berk and our pick for a stylish stay in Fort Collins—to announcements of our prestigious design awards—like the winners from Five Under 40, Circle of Excellence, 2018 Home of the Year and second annual FABULOUS List

But we are a magazine dedicated to the home, after all, and we love to share innovative, stunning and timeless high-end home design. To top off a fabulous year, here we present a countdown the most popular home features from 2018. 

 Cheers!
