Decorating for the holidays doesn’t have to blow a fuse or require enough Christmas lights to see your house from space. It doesn’t even mean having to stick to red and green. We caught up with Rumor Designs partner and interior designer Valerie Stafford to talk about ways to avoid the Christmas kitsch but still make your home warm and inviting for guests and family during the holidays.

Common Scents
Most people are so overwhelmed by Christmas decorations, they don’t even think about scent. “Smells are a great way to introduce that holiday feel,” Stafford says. “Candles and guest soaps can bring in a warm, inviting atmosphere to your home without being too overwhelming.” Stafford recommends stocking guest rooms and bathrooms with wintery scents like pine, cinnamon, thyme and rosemary to set the holiday mood.

Coloradoans live for summertime – those 3-4 short months from June to September when fresh local produce is in abundance. But one thing we have year-round when it comes to fresh, local ingredients is meat. With several working ranches that sell product direct to market, it’s a meat lover’s dream when it comes to preparing some of the best quality meats available anywhere in the world. The best way to celebrate the bounty of seasonal produce and to let local ingredients shine is with a backyard summer BBQ. With the BBQ season upon us, we met up with local chef Lulu Cox, owner of Amuse Bouche, for some advice on how to create the perfect Steamboat summer BBQ.
