A ray of Sunshine…..custom home features Vintage Woods.

This beautiful creative custom home was built following the devastating Four-mile fire in Boulder. Architect Renee del Guadio designed this fantastic mix of steel, wood and glass and perched it high atop the burnt hillside. The home, built by Morningstar Homes, features sliding barn-door shutters created from Vintage Woods shiplap beetle kill pine. The sweeping views of both mountains and plains make this a real wonder.

Super dining in Vail…..look no further than Campo de Fiori.

Campo de Fiori or “Campo”, to those who know the fabulous Italian restaurant, is not to be missed when if you are ever visiting Vail, Colorado.  General Manager Mira Hozzova and Head Chef Simone Reatti lead a spectacular team providing a culinary experience that transcends fine dining. Once you try Campo you will no doubt be back for more.

I recently had the opportunity to photograph a number of new seasonal menu items created by Chef Simone. Each dish is an incredible combination of taste, texture and sensational delight. The backdrop is warm and inviting and reminds of an intimate cafe in the Südtirol.

Campo de Fiori is located at 100 East Meadow Drive in Vail, Co. 970.476.8994 and also at 205 South Mill Street in Aspen, Co. 970.920.7717.
