Friday’s Forecast: 88 Degrees…

That’s how we got you last year, remember? We promised you–our clients and friends–a free brew, and you responded to the call. Naturally, then, we assume that a 90-degree September day will have you in a full-out sprint, straight to our parking lot for a cold one. Best believe we’re making plans, pals. We’re lining …

Lounge Lessons | CliffsNotes

A few weeks ago we introduced you to Stephen Goldsmith–beautiful, brilliant Stephen Goldsmith–and you’re a damn fool if you didn’t take full advantage of the opportunity to hear him speak in our COLLECTIVE lounge [at our first ever Lounge Lessons session]. The night was intimate, intriguing, and crazy-inspired, and we feel lucky to have shaken …

We CELL Homes

Our website is a labor of love, without question. We do our very, very best to keep things running smoothly and looking polished, and all in the name of l-o-v-e. Few small bumps along the way? You betcha. But are the stars aligning on your phone/tablet today? HELL YES, they are! Real good news here: …

Mid-Mod Remodel | Open House

List Price: 760,000.00 Neighborhood: Olympus Cove Property Profile: 3,294 sq. ft. | 4 bed, 3.5 bath Our Opinion: We were told the clean lines, wide open floor plan, impeccable style, modern light fixtures, and huge windows in this newly-remodeled mid-mod marvel would literally knock our socks off. That turned out to be [metaphorically] true. This cove gem has all …

The Weekenders | Eat At Joe’s

For our last Weekender excursion, we tempted you into fleeing our fair city for another gem of a town: Park City. She’s lovely and sophisticated, but if what your soul thirsts for is a genuine unplugging, may we submit to you some good ol’ fashioned car camping? You know, where breakfasts are served out of …

Orchid Dynasty

Structurally, evolutionarily, and aesthetically, orchids resonate with what we at the COLLECTIVE aspire to be and do [they're as complex and diverse as they are stunning]. We could say similarly wonderful things about the good folks that run Orchid Dynasty. It’s a bonafide mom-and-pop, built-from-the-ground-up operation, and they’ve got a borderline-obsessive knowledge of and commitment to the art/trade of orchids, …

Price Slash | Hot Flash

List Price: 735,000.00  725,000.00 Neighborhood: Ensign Downs Property Profile: 3,846 sq. ft. | 4 bed, 3 bath Our Opinion: This gem is a one-of-a-kind, all. Solid as a rock and polished to perfection, say we. Think: Brazilian Walnut hardwood floors [no laminates up in here!], new Milgard black anodized-aluminum, Low E windows, top-of-the-line appliances in the gourmet kitchen, a …

806 Blair | Put ‘Er There

List Price: 240,000.00 Neighborhood: Liberty Park Property Profile: 2,483 sq. ft. | 2 bed, 1 bath Our Opinion: Full of mediterranean flair and ample outdoor space [think endless garden boxes], this charmer on the corner of 800 S and Blair Street is pretty much the belle of the block. Not a single square of this space …

Modern Manners | RSVP. Pretty Please.

Things Utah is known for being all kinds of awesome: jaw-dropping landscapes, fry sauce, the highest literacy rate in the nation, “The Greatest Snow on Earth,” clean living, the Osmonds, and pulling a successful Olympics out of its ass in 2002. On the down side, it also has the worst of some things, and I’m …
