HSL | A Fresh Perspective

Those even remotely familiar with the Park City food scene know the merits of Handle. The “carefully constructed domain of a top, national chef,” Handle consistently serves in every sense of the word, thanks to owners Melissa Gray, Briar Handly, and Meagan Nash. It stands to reason, then, that when the three of them asked us to …

Oh, Ogden | We See You

Preserved Spot | On a Lot

List Price: 225,000.00 Neighborhood: Sugar House Property Profile: 1,342 sq ft | 2 bed, 2 bath Our Opinion: COLLECTIVELY, we have an affinity for mid-century architecture (yes, yes…you know this).

Living Local | It’s Multifocal

For better or worse, it’s upon us: ‘Tis the season to go shopping. True, it’s the season of giving, but the fact of the matter is, in order to “give”, often times one must “purchase”. And as far as we’re concerned, you can check off every gift on your list by perusing the goods at …

Giving Tuesday | #ThisIsHome

We don’t dislike Black Friday entirely, folks (it is our favorite color, after all, and if you can snag that one thing you’ve been eyeballing on the cheap, then more power to ya), but we also won’t deny that we’re all for Small Business Saturday. Supporting the locals whose businesses, in turn, support our local …

Life In Your Space | Rice Road

With summer temps stretching well into November, we say it’s best to spend your afternoons outdoors while you still can. This nicely-updated townhome in Farmington happens to have a lovely (and sizeable) outdoor space, but it’s also mere moments from all the bustling goodies at Station Park (see: eats, shops, and movies galore). So naturally, …
