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!

Amazing Park Hill Denver Home Renovation Tour

Join us today as we get the inside scoop about a historic bungalow renovation in the popular Park Hill neighborhood of Denver, Colorado.   We had the great privilege of speaking with Brooklyn Daugherty and Erin England of Cult Creative (, the duo who transformed this space from a dated design that did not work for the modern lifestyle into a highly functional, well thought out space.

Upon entry to the home you are welcomed into an open concept family room / kitchen / dining area which provides a sense of spaciousness but while also maintaining them as defined spaces.  The new layout allows the homeowners to spend time together while engaging in different activities.  In the family room your eye is immediately drawn to the original Craftsman historical elements that Brooklyn and Erin retained, including the square glass windows, built ins and the original fireplace just updated with a coat of paint.

When comparing the original home and the new home, you can’t help but notice the increase in the amount of natural light which was achieved by turning a south facing window into a set of sliding doors, vaulting the ceiling in the kitchen and using white paint to visually create spaciousness.  The kitchen has no upper cabinets opting instead for open shelving.  The base cabinets are IKEA frames updated with custom doors from online fabricator Semi-Handmade (Pro-Tip!!!) Also in the kitchen was a fresh take on the barn door trend, Erin and Brooklyn reclaimed an old original door from the project, mounted it on a track and now it proudly covers the pantry opening….another nod to the history of the old home.

The original home included 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and one requirement of the project was to add another bedroom AND another bathroom, which the team was able to do just by moving walls around within the existing home’s footprint.  The master bedroom now includes a four piece ensuite bath and the other two bedrooms share a bathroom.

It is really fascinating to see the before and after of this project and even believe it was the same home.  It just goes to show you can’t judge a book by its cover….. take a look at the video and see for yourself!
