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.

Found & Foraged Linky Party #22

Happy Saturday you guys! During the last Found & Foraged party, I mentioned that I had kinda fallen behind, but I didn’t fully explain. Not only did I have family in town for the holiday, I had been prepping for some really fun and exciting projects that finally came to fruition last Tuesday. For all my fellow bloggers reading this, you know how every once in a while you have one of those amazing blog days. That day for me was last Tuesday. It doesn’t happen often, so I cherished it!

I published my latest I Make Emily Henderson Cry, and thanks to a little birdy…eh hem, I’m lookin’ at you Gilly =) …the REAL Emily Henderson wrote on my Facebook post. Literally, it was 6AM, and I about to head out to the grocery store. (Because is there a better time to pick up deli meats and avocados?) Anyhoo, I was scrolling through my phone and there she was! My eyes popped out of my head like a cartoon character, and I started to jump up and down like a banshee in the kitchen. The Boy looked at me like I was insane and completely off my rocker. I tried to speak, but the words wouldn’t form. I finally just threw my phone at him and managed to say, “LOOOOOOOOK!!!”

Also that morning, Chairish blogged a little interview about me and the Instagram Sales I’m completely addicted to. Not only am I doling out tips and tricks on how to snag the items you want, but I’m also sharing how I’ve styled the items I’ve purchased. The next one will be hosted by another one of my favorite bloggers, Waiting On Martha. She took Chairish thru the Scott Antique Market to find 25 amazing items that will go up for sale on Instagram Sunday, April 12th 9AM PT.

An to really top Tuesday off, I was filming with WGN TV (Chicago TV station) for a couple home hack segments that will appear soon on Weekend Workbench! Which reminds me, I owe an email to Ashley. Phew! That was everything I think.
