On our wish list: The Padma desk (pictured) with its mosaic top and stainless steel legs. 5375 Landmark Place, Greenwood Village, 303-779-9500
Elements 5280 Gallery > This welcoming gallery dials down the intimidation factor that often comes with buying art.

Holly St., Greenwood Village, 303-804-5280
Tend Home and Garden > This cozy cottage of a flower shop is an ideal spot to pick up succulents and air plants in gorgeous containers.
