More From Katie Bald

Pride 2015 | Glitter and Gold

At cityhomeCOLLECTIVE, we do real estate. We do design. We do lovin’ where you live. But perhaps most importantly, we do lovin’ who you are. Our COLLECTIVE is composed of a beautiful band of solid citizens who steadfastly peddle the good word of L-O-V-E


ICAA | Walker Mansion Tour

The preservation of architecture is damn important in our COLLECTIVE eye. Education about architecture? Well, that’s obviously the first damn-important step in the process. The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (or ICAA) is “the leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the practice


HRC | Galarrific!

All in favor of equality? Well, if you’re not in the ayes by now, you can sashay that nay-saying ass far away from us. The Human Rights Campaign (or the HRC) is one of the front runners on the side of aye, and each year


AIGA 100 Show | Design Sense(s)

Damn. Sometimes there’s so much mind-blowing talent in this town it’s hard to keep track of. And sometimes, it’s conveniently all in one place. The annual AIGA 100 Show Gala is one such occasion, and 2015′s was a dizzying display of design the likes


Tastemakers, 2015 | Plate Up

This Saturday calls for blue skies, a high of 75°, and a tantalizing taste of a few of SLC’s best eateries. Tastemaker’s 2015 kicks off this Thursday, but it won’t come to a close until Friday night, so you’ve got two deliciously-golden opportunities to


UMOCA | Get Vicious

In the instance that you haven’t heard word of the upcoming UMOCA Gala, listen well: the annual affair is a chance to dress up, get down, and raise funds in the name of contemporary art. Rubbing elbows with artsy-types is always a good time,


Sparano + Mooney | Open House

Due in no small part to their stellar architectural designs and downright-pleasing demeanors, Sparano + Mooney is one of our COLLECTIVE favorite pairings (they round out our top three, in fact, along with gin + tonic and Hall + Oates). For those in the


Bar-X | Easy Drink

We admire those trendsetters, trailblazers, and innovators that further the cause of making SLC ever more badass. Having been established in 1933 (adios, Prohibition!), we can safely say that Bar-X is the cool, war-tatted, Cadillac-driving granddaddy of hooch-slingers in this town. True, the speakeasy’s


Quint-Essentials | Decked to the Nines

The warm’s a-comin’, people, and we can’t stop thinking ’bout summer nights out back with a few of our besties and a glass of something goooood… We’ve got a few fabulous outdoorsy-type spaces in our Rolodex of favorite places, so we thought it might


Art Meets Fashion | Spring ’15

We hardly need an excuse to sing the praises of Art Meets Fashion (after all, it’s their mission to “support the artistic community throughout the year with lecture series, documentary and photojournalism projects, on-going creative business support, and culturally engaging events”), but they’ve seen fit to pack


AIGA 100 Show | Sense-Ational

As far as nights on the town go, it’s hard to beat the annual AIGA 100 Show Gala. The yearly event, stylishly hosted by the Salt Lake Chapter of the Professional Association for Design, is an evening of awards, food, drinks, music, and mingling.


Season Salute + Rock the Rooftop

Alas, the time has come for Ballet West’s prima ballerina, Christiana Bennett, to hang up her pointes. She’s danced with the esteemed company for 16 seasons, but her upcoming performances in “Almost Tango” and “Innovation 2015″ will be the famed figurante’s swan song. To
