Something you will learn about Taylor, our Denver branch manager, is that she’s a sucker for minimalistic ambiance. Of course, she’ll pull off any look you love, but when she’s left to her own devices, she’s likely to whip up something like this. Which, if we do say so ourselves, is, ah-mazing!  Taylor really wanted […]
