Home Tour — Marianne Brown’s Denver Dwelling

When Marianne Brown emailed me out of the blue and said, “Hey, my home is unique, cool and eclectic, would you like to feature it on your blog?” I said, “Heck ya I would! Home tours are hella fun.” 

Why do I like featuring homes that don’t belong to me? If you guessed, “Kyla, you’re that total weirdo that looks into homes on evening walks…not in a creepster way…but in a I want to see your pillows kinda way,” you’re completely right. Gotta home tour you think I should feature? What are you waiting for??? Sharing is caring, so email it over for review, and be sure to visit Ashley Redmond’s Tiny Treehouse home tour.

Marianne Brown Home Tour - Mid-Century Modern Minimal Home Decor

Today we’re touring Marianne Brown’s home in Denver, CO. She’s an incredible photographer and claims thrift stores are her sanctuary…my kinda gal. As most of you know, I’m a chair hoarder. Well, Marianne one upped that sich. She’s a sofa hoarder. Don’t believe me? Check out her Etsy shop chucked full of vintage beauties (and some great photography prints as well, I love the bull print). But mitts of that green 1970’s channel back…because that should be mine, LOL.

An easy way to do that is by adding pillows, but I don’t like spending a ton of money…and believe you me, when you start looking at Pierre Frey, Schumacher, and Kelly Wearstler prints, those suckas can cost a pretty penny.

Beautiful Distractions No. 4

Dear diary, it’s been over a week since my last blog post…ahhh! You guys! I’m so sorry. And I was smashing that post once a week New Year’s Resolution. The job that pays the bills came down on me hard with a crazy deadline for a new client website. Everything needed to be designed and coded in a matter of days for a presentation. And darn it, it broke my streak. But, after pulling a few all-nighters and a couple glasses of wine, I’m back baby and ready to share whats been distracting me lately.

A White Tank Top and Lesson Learned

Sometimes I have a really hard time falling asleep. My mind is racing about a work deadline, a blog post idea, my oldest got in trouble at school, my youngest decided to cut her own hair, random errands I forgot to run, a unicorn bell I sold on Chairish and totally forgot to ship. You know, normal life chaos that everyone deals with. When I can’t turn my brain off, I tend to scroll through my favorite vintage sites. From tufted navy blue velvet sofas to coral channel back chairs to mid-century lighting, slowly but surely these pretty treasures lull me to dreamy-dreamy land.

A plain white tank top hanging on a wire coat hanger with a "M" on a tag sticking out of it. No color. Black and white pencil drawing.

About a month or so ago, late one night, I was scrolling through Everything But The House and found some art I really adored. Like “I must have this” adoration. I’m not sure what really drew me in, I mean, it was just a picture of a tank top. A plain white tank top hanging on a wire coat hanger with a “M” on a tag sticking out of it. No color. Black and white. Simple. At first I thought it was photograph but after reading the item description, I learned it was an original pencil drawing. Signed, but by no one in particular…well, I can’t say that for sure…you actually can’t make out the signature. With every second I stared at it, I adored it even more. It was simply stunning.
