Life in Your Space | On Stratford

Now is the season of lingering outdoors, of barbeques and bike rides. When twilight calls for hoodies and fingerless mittens and when you can begin to see even the smallest evidence of your breath on the air, you’ll know what’s to come, and you’ll wish you’d taken advantage of what’s here a bit more. So, …

Federal Way | Brick by Brick

List Price: 875,000.00  Neighborhood: Federal Heights Property Profile: 3,909 sq. ft. | 4 bed, 4 bath Our Opinion: Federal Heights is one of our favorite COLLECTIVE neighborhoods, and it’s no surprise why. Its streets are lined with mature trees and dotted with stately lampposts, and with its dazzling (and diverse) array of homes, this little alcove is one of …

Twin Pines | Get in Line

List Price: 660,000.00 Neighborhood: Draper Property Profile: 5,015 sq. ft. | 6 bed, 4 bath Our Opinion: We’ve found yet another gem out yonder in South Valley [truth: said gem found us], and we’re pretty smitten.

For Your Holladay Harvest

List Price: 300,000.00 Neighborhood: Holladay Property Profile: 1,625 sq. ft. | 3 bed, 1.5 bath Our Opinion: If you lean toward “off the grid-ish” sustainable, small-house living, this might be your perfect casa, friends. We’ll start out back, where the fruit and veggie growth can easily accommodate your own small army. Really. Seven fruit trees, a large raspberry patch, …

St. Mary’s | Mid-Mod Majesty

List Price: 1,400,000.00  1,300,000.00 Neighborhood: Foothill Property Profile: 4,738 sq. ft. | 5 bed, 4 bath Our Opinion: This here is one of those only-of-its-kind numbers–a well-preserved, mid-century home in the coveted St. Mary’s neighborhood, with enough high-end updates to scream “modern” and all the well-crafted fun of 1956 still fully intact. We assume that’s just as local architect, …

Pallet Bistro | Wood Works

This is one of those stories that is, at this point, so very overdue that we nearly feel sheepish in our tardiness. But hey…this website is a labor of love, and since our city/state have SO much that we want to gush about (in the way of locals, homes, design, new businesses, and general creative …

Home is Where You Make It

Travel Tips on Home-ing Up Your Home Away from Home: A few weeks back, I stayed at an airBNB on Lake Tahoe. It was quiet, cute, and in a beautiful location. Designed with more warm modern tones than I tend toward, sure, but otherwise perfectly livable. But you know what made it more than livable? …

Your Life. Styled.

There is little in this world as satisfying as seeing clients live happily in the spaces that we’ve spent months–sometimes years–helping to create. Design is a collaborative effort. We work with our clients to design a space that represents that which they love, what they value, and who they are. If we can land on …

Capitol Hill Condo

List Price: 140,000.00 Neighborhood: Capitol Hill Property Profile: 693 sq. ft. | 1 bed, 1 bath Our Opinion: We’ve long had a love affair with the Capitol Hill area, and who could blame us? The heady mix of architecture and design from varied eras, the decadent city views, and those walkable tree-lined streets had us at “hello.” Being one …

A Street Cottage | Our Cup Of Tea

List Price: 2,250,000.00  1,995,000.00 Neighborhood: The Avenues Property Profile: 7,169 sq. ft. | 4 bed, 6 bath Our Opinion: We’ve said it before: style is so much more than the way something looks. It’s an air, a persona, a way of life. It can be studied, of course, but there are those that simply have it. That …

U of U | Architecture + Planning

Salt Lake City is, by many accounts, a college town. We may not be Dillon, Texas, but come football season our streets and citizens sport more than a bit of crimson pride. The University of Utah, perched atop its palatial hill, is the target of a yearly wave of school spirit the valley over. Yes, …

Quint-Essentials | Best Back Yards

Oh, Summer. Such a savory, scorching slice of our seasons. So many qualities we adore…so many 100+ days where we find ourselves wishing for the sweet reprieve of Fall. We’ve had a particularly hot one this year, but come February, we’ll all be fantasizing once again about backyard BBQs, weekends spent under a canopy of …
