How to Style a Coffee Table Like a Design Pro

July 16, 2014 4:02 pm

When styled correctly, a coffee table can have a positive impact on the overall aesthetic of a space. However, there's a fine line between a chic display and a cluttered mess. Here are three tips to help ensure your table is making the right statement.

1) Only display items worthy of displaying.
That is to say, if you're not proud of the item, then said item doesn't deserve a spot on your coffee table–even if it is your favorite weekly tabloid! Stash keys, spare change, stray papers, remote controls, and mail elsewhere. Or if you prefer, a decorative box can provide storage for these items.

2) Display items of varying heights.
Use an eye-catching tray and stacks of hardcover books to create the bottom-most layer of your display. Shorter candles and bowls can complement taller pieces, like oversized hurricane vases and flower arrangements. Just be sure to edit your display so that the table doesn't become cluttered.

3) Make it yours.
Your table should reflect your personality. If you have a favorite quirky collectible or a treasured family heirloom, this is the place to show it off!

Renegade Brewing Company: Denver Craft Beer

July 9, 2014 4:02 pm

Renegade Brewing Company is a relatively new addition to Colorado’s craft brew scene. Located in Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District, the tap room and brewery have received accolades including “best new brewery” from 5280 Top of The Town, and #2 Best Bar in Denver by Westword. Their vision is brewing flavorful beer with an askance look toward traditions and trends.

Their Ryeteous flagship beer has been canned since the summer of 2012 and is available throughout the area, but there may be no better place to enjoy it than the brewery's own tap room. The space doesn't have the TVs commonly found in other bars, but that just makes this a good place to strike up a conversation with new friends. Food trucks often park outside the space, making it easy to grab a bite to eat.
