Art Deco Lovers Will Adore This 1931 Denver Mini-Castle
As a (rather nerdy) child growing up in the Northeast, I used to spend snow days home from school curled up in front of the television watching old Fred & Ginger movies. Homes of the 1930s, especially those that draw from the Art Deco style, have a special place in my heart. So I was floored when the team over at Estately (thanks guys!) sent me this amazing listing for a home in Denver, CO that just hit the market today. It’s a fantastic Tudor-style home with some very cool Art Deco details thrown into the mix. The ceilings, the staircase, the leaded windows—The whole thing is an absolute dream!
