Take it Outside!

If you saw our first post, All in the Family, then you’ll remember the rambling picture of kids, dogs, and grandkids.  I’m Mike, the old guy in the back row. Together with my wife, Lindy (the pretty lady standing next to me), we do all of the product sourcing and buying for our store Homefest and our website, HomefestDecor.com.  Mine is one of the many voices you’ll be hearing from on this site, mostly to share information about the products we source and the artists and craftspeople who are behind all of them.

Luxury Home Furnishings Style Blog

Welcome to Homefestdecor.com, the latest version of our website and blog. Now that we are re-launching, we think a little introduction is in order.  Lucky enough to live the country life in Northern Colorado, we also have the good fortune of doing it surrounded by family while doing work that we love.  We are three generations of Coloradans (and assorted dogs and chickens) who love to work, dine, celebrate and play together.

Over the past 24 years, we’ve built a luxury retail business that emphasizes and celebrates the increasing rarity of the artisan craft.

We think one of life’s greatest luxuries is the experience of owning a piece that someone made by hand and made all the better if it’s a treasure that can be used every day and later passed down. Our goal at Homefest has always been to bring those artisan products to the wonderful customers who come to our Denver store and now, we’d like to share them with new friends who might be looking for a more convenient way to have the Homefest experience.
