The walls on the left-hand side of the home are original brick (painted in Benjamin Moore Sidewalk Gray 2133-60); builder Morningstar Homes added pony walls (short, three-foot walls on top of the existing brick) to extend the height to the new roof. The smooth hard-trowel stucco on the porch, painted to match, is part of the addition.
Neighbors often wonder if this sleek North Boulder home could really be a carryover from the area’s midcentury days. In Boulder-based architect Renée del Gaudio’s book, that’s a compliment. Del Gaudio worked with the owners of the uninspiring 1,700-square-foot ranch to transform it into a sun-...

Maybe you’re getting all the side effects with none of the benefits, or maybe it’s the sixth therapy you’ve tried to no avail. Whatever the reason, you’re left wondering if there’s a...

We’ve all been there—that miserable moment on the slopes when you have to yank off your toasty gloves, dig your phone or iPod from your pocket, and fumble through your playlist with frozen fingers. Happily, Gaugewear in Boulder has partnered with the University of Colorado’s College of Engineering...
Custom birchwood veneer covers the dining room walls. A set of midcentury chairs (by Denmark’s Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son) surround the custom zinc-topped table, while a Swedish wool flatweave rug by FJ Hakimian grounds the space.

Above left: The entry’s antler chandelier provides just the right amount of mountain novelty—without overdoing the Western ski-house look—and contrasts nicely with the clean lines of the 19th-century Belgian Arts and Crafts table and 1940s sofa (by Kaare Klint for Rud Rasmussen).

Not too long ago, a ghost town stood where downtown Denver now flourishes. It was in the mid-1980s, when the price of crude oil nose-dived 67 percent in about a year and dragged the state’s economy down with it. Companies fled the city and major institutions shut down, leaving Denver with the...

Nobody likes dust. We’ve even named a home appliance after our zeal for eradicating the stuff. (Who doesn’t love a trusty DustBuster?) As it turns out, though, just how those minuscule flecks are distributed in space plays a key role in discovering the secrets of the next frontier. In July, NASA’s...

Deidre Oliver and her husband left Chicago in 1998 to raise their three children in a more outdoorsy locale. Their destination: Niwot, a bucolic town with about 4,000 residents just north of Boulder. They bought an acre upon which to build a home (designed by Boulder’s MQ Architecture & Design...
