A roundup of the most popular home features this year
As we come to the end of this unprecedented year, we’re rounding up the top 10 Colorado home features of 2020, as chosen by the readers.
The most popular 100 articles published on Colorado Homes & Lifestyles in 2020 range from lifestyle stories—like our roundup of top white paint and best plants for Colorado (both chosen by the pros) and our profile on artist Noelle Phares and her colorful landscape paintings—to announcements of our prestigious design awards—like the winners from Five Under Forty, Circle of Excellence, 2020 Home of the Year and this year’s FABULOUS List.
But we are a magazine dedicated to the home, after all, and we love to share new, stunning and timeless high-end home design. Here we present a countdown of the most popular home features this year.
