“You Know You’re From Denver When….”


Every city has its fair share of attractions and attributes that make it unique. Denver, Colorado is no exception. Denver’s evolution from boom and bust mountain outpost to more recently sprawling urban high tech metropolis has left some interesting juxtapositions in its wake. Combine that with our highly variable climate and it makes for some good inside jokes and a bit of a learning curve for those who relocate here to the beautiful state of Colorado!

In this weeks video, we explore ten “You Know You’re From Denver When……” and we’d like to know, what else would you add to this list?

Head over to our Facebook page (@TheNelsonTeam) or YouTube Channel (DenverLivingHomes) and let us know what other quirks make you love our city or state?

2020 Design Trends |||| Denver Real Estate ||| The Nelson Team


We were fortunate to catch up with Nick at the exclusive golf course community of Ravenna,  just south of Chatfield Reservoir in Littleton, Colorado.  The area features exclusively custom designs and we viewed this gorgeous home built by Platinum Homes.  The home includes many current design trends which have been seamlessly integrated into this home.  Nick shows and tells us more in this video walk through…

  • Highly functional floor plan – formal living rooms and dining rooms are a thing of the past in new construction homes. Instead every room has a purpose and is intended to be utilized on an almost daily basis.
  • Indoor Outdoor Living – one thing to notice in the family room are the large multi-panel doors which fold back to create a seamless flow from indoor to outdoor. The covered patio complete with indoor/outdoor kitchen and fireplace makes a perfect place to entertain, unwind and take in the view.
  • Home Automation – the home is fully wired for audio/video so the new owner can hook up their choice of system and be ready to go, no wires, no extra speakers
  • Chef’s Kitchen – the kitchen truly is the heart of every home and the new larger size makes room for everyone. The oversized island allows the chef to have company while they prep and cook.  Kitchens are really where a lot of interesting design details can be incorporated – interesting backsplash tile, exotic countertops, upgraded door pulls, floating open shelving, all gives the room a custom and well designed look.
  • Upgraded and unique Lighting – Lighting is an easy and inexpensive way to transform a space and the show stopping pieces in this home are no exception.
  • Laundry space near living quarters – gone are the days of laundry rooms being in the basement or first floor mudroom – in this case they connected the laundry room to the master bathroom.
  • Neutral paint colors but utilizing accent walls – paint remains an easy way to update and define a space.

We hope you have enjoyed the tour of this beautiful home, please reach out to Kathy, Zac or Jill to discuss your Real Estate dreams!
