Clear the Air | Breathe Easy

Like any pioneer-founded city in America, Salt Lake has a long, strange history, much of which is peppered with embarassingly-sordid details. In most instances, we can pass the blame to generations past. But one such sordid detail cannot. It’s perhaps our deepest and darkest secret–and it’s definitely our dirtiest. Yes, it’s the Inversion, and it …

Pallet Design | What You Didn’t Know

Years. It’s literally taken us years to finally document our Pallet design project through the lens of our favorite COLLECTIVE photographer, Kerri Fukui. We’ve given you a few less-than-stellar, point-and-shoot perspectives on this, our first-ever restaurant design project…and we’ve documented the top-notch staff and menu in a business feature. But here we are today, finally …

BALM Apparel | Print’s Not Dead

Social media is a weird, remarkable thing, and admittedly, we don’t fully understand its many inside secrets. Its incredible power to ‘make or break’ seems surprising at times, perhaps because it’s utilized on something no bigger than an artisanal chocolate bar. Only the slightest of gestures are required to salute, snub, or submit anything at …

Way we figure, why stop now? Since we’re officially back on track with our COLLECTIVE Clergy intros (oh, did you not meet Katie last week? Must read…), we’re just going to keep things chugging along. After all, did you know we have a gang of, like, 30+ here at CHC now? We’re just making certain …

The COLLECTIVE Clergy | Katie

Well, it’s been faaarrr too long since we’ve done one of these, gang. The COLLECTIVE Clergy is a series designed to introduce you to us. Y’know…offer up a little insight on the hamsters that keep this COLLECTIVE wheel spinning. We’ve rounded out a handful of our people in the past (this guy...and this one…and her…and …

Apollo Drive | Godly Design

Some years ago, our goodly head honcho was the proud owner of a home on the hill. The house on Apollo Drive was a dreamy, mid-century mecca that had been remodeled to perfection by its previous owner, who was ever-so-careful to make the much-needed updates without losing the any of that MCM magic. Upon purchase, …

Circle Drive | Door’s Open

We’re avid fans of architecture, and over the years, we’ve accrued quite the collection of styles to count among our favorites. And, while you’ll find we frequently publicize our love affair with the blank slate that modern often affords, we’ve also been known to hold many-a candle to a Tudor or two. To have to …

Dented Brick | A Distiller’s Dream

“It’s all about the water,” says distiller Ethan Miller. “There are so many variables that play into the distilling process, but if the water doesn’t have the correct pH, or has too many chemical additives or too few minerals, it can throw off everything from initial fermentation to bottle proofing.” Built on land formerly owned …

VanCott | This Perfect Lot

Full disclosure: we’ve been having something of a love affair with this Ed Dreier home for years now. We’ve seen it through multiple owners, gasped repeatedly, drooled over the clean lines and life behind massive windows shrouded in trees. And when one architecturally-inclined cityhomeCOLLECTIVE agent represented the current owners on the purchase of said architectural …

Laziz | From Lebanon, With Love

Those who count themselves skilled virtuosos of the cityhomeCOLLECTIVE website have seen these fellas on the pages of said site a few times. We’ve gushed over Derek Kitchen and Moudi Sbeity for a multitude of reasons. The two are exemplary members of the movers, shakers, and ground breakers club, to say the least (read why …
