Again, I love anything that balances modern design with rustic country. This is the home of designers Courtney and Robert of Sixx Design (named after their six children, however, the newest baby made seven). They have perfected the art of taking empty lots, run down spaces and complete wrecks and turning them into homes. Not only homes, but gorgeous, contemporary and brilliantly designed homes. I have been keeping up with this family ever since I read a post about them here, and I am excited about the news that they are soon to be BRAVO stars. I will definitely be watching.
Mmmmm... Well tonight, of course, we met for weekly Chipotle Tuesday, I got my normal (black beans, rice, extra lettuce, no meat, guac and salad dressing on the side), always so good, if you have not tried the salad dressing, you are definitely missing out. I thought I'd attach an excerpt from a Chipotle email that Cody sent out a couple weeks ago, as he does every week, so you can get a glimpse... Enjoy!
Funny things of the week:
1. A great video about the ridiculousness of Facebook.
2. This is why Trampolines at basketball games aren't a good idea.
3. Ridiculous product of the day.
4. A presidential reunion of all the best SNL president characters. If you liked those guys, you'll love this.
5. Improve Everywhere is back. A group of 50 people get together and throw a birthday party for a random guy in a bar.
6. The greatest coaching reaction ever.
Thought of the week: I wish people were more like bears. I bet humans are the only species in the animal kingdom that has to work out in order to maintain their physical stature. Bears hibernate for months but could still kill us with one swipe of the paw. Same with lions, crocodiles, and gorillas. Then again, I bet lions don't eat many potato chips or twizzlers. I should layoff the Skittles.
Question of the week: How would you classify your sense of humor?
I have not stopped thinking about the design of this home since I saw it on Design Sponge, I think it takes a good eye to be able to mix conetemporary and rustic as seamlessly as the couple who owns this home did. I love the tall ceilings with wood beams, the built in bookshelves in the dining room, the secret loft space, and the kitchen has such a unique blend of materials that make it feel like part of the home rather than a separate entity. I love love it...
Last Thursday Stone and I had a date night in Denver. Because we don't eat at nice restaurants too often, I always do my research. We decided to go to Osteria Marco which is in Larimer Square, near the Denver Center of Performing Arts, where we were headed after dinner to see Mary Poppins. After having the pesto and ciabatta bread, hand crafted mozzarella and salami, balsamic artichokes, sausage pizza and tiramisu, we were stuffed, but both agreed that this was one of the best dinners we have ever had. mmmmmm.
