Weekenders | Parks & Preservation

Story & Photos by: Jess Downer, Renata Stone “The battle we have fought, and are still fighting for the forests is a part of the eternal conflict between right and wrong, and we cannot expect to see the end of it. So we must count on watching and striving for these trees, and should always …

Renting Vs. Buying | Q&A

Deciding to buy a home is a huge decision…we know this better than anyone. The idea of owning a home may seem unrealistic or, at times, completely unreachable.

Encircle | No Sides, Only Love

Part of what makes Salt Lake City (and America, herself, for that matter) so great is diversity. Few things warm our COLLECTIVE hearts more than watching someone be unapologetically themselves, and to see that someone accepted and embraced by their community. Now, more than ever, we feel the need to raise a voice and hold …

Place of Worship | Family Matters

Hold lightly the notion of “home.” The space in which one dwells is just one facet of “home,” and while it’s true that at cityhomeCOLLECTIVE we obsess about the physical manifestation of this abstract space day in and out, we know that–like most beautiful, living things–”home” must be handled delicately. Your home is your heart. It is …

Your Perfect Match

List Price: 159,000.00 Neighborhood: Marmalade Property Profile: 826 sq. ft. | 2 bedroom, 1 bath Our Opinion: This adorable, retro 60′s unit (built in 1961, officially) was fully redone in 2008, at which point everything was redone and it all became “new.” Simplicity abounds here in the best of ways. Lovely, hardwood floors and a …

We all have need for a suitable place to live, and the real estate market is something of a wild ride that’s affected by myriad factors the world over.

Quint-Essentials | Cut to the Chaise

You know we love a good Best Of around here. It’s precisely the reason we came up with our Quint-Essentials series. You’ve seen it before, friends: we’ve dished on pools that make us drool, white-hot fireplaces, and kitchens likely to inspire a remodel, among others. Everything that lands in our fab fivesome has either been …
