DENY Daily Digs: Moroccan Bathroom

Getting tired of that boring white tile in your bathroom? We are too. Today, our inspiration comes from a bathroom filled with vibrant colors and patterns, reminiscent of the bustling souks of Morocco, where bright turquoise is EVERYWHERE to be found. Take a look!

We LOVE our dogs. Like, a little TOO much. With dogs in the office almost daily, we get to have our fur babies nearby to make every day extra fantastic!

And they happened to dress up for National Dog Day today:

We love to pamper our pooches with stylin’ accessories that scream “I’m the artsy-est dog on the block”.

So, in honor of National Dog Day, we’re highlighting some of our favorite picks for our furry best friends:

SHOOT ME TO THE MOON

Representations of the moon are popping up everywhere. We’ve seen nods to this celestial body in hipster clothes, jewelry, music festivals, and even in beer that’s brewed with certified moon dust. So in honor of yesterday’s new moon and the beginning of the longest lunar month of 2014, we’ve compiled some of our favorite out-of-this-world designs from DENY artists.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF DENY.

Ever wondered what a day in the life of DENY was? Well, come on in! We’re giving you a little virtual tour of our home away from home. Sit back, get to know us a little and we hope you enjoy it!

It all started in a hospital room. Yes, you read that right.  Husband and wife team Dustin and Kim Nyhus cofounded DENY Designs by ignoring the phrase, “perfect timing”.  Pregnant with twin boys in the spring of 2010, Kim was hospitalized and put on bed rest for two whole months.  It was during that time that the couple decided to pursue their dreams of owning their own business. With a degree in Industrial Design, Dustin knew he wanted to build furniture and immerse himself in home décor.  He also wanted to share his love of art with the world, while also making a difference.  Boom…a business was born!  DENY Designs officially launched a year later in the spring of 2011 with the company’s signature (and highly requested) product, The BlingBox, a hanging jewelry armoire solution that marries art on the wall with an organized home for all your precious sparkles.

A few months later, DENY saw an absence in the marketplace for truly unique home furnishings and launched duvet covers, shower curtains and throw blankets followed by throw pillows.  In three short years, DENY has evolved from that single product offering featuring the work of approximately 10 artists to an entire line of 30 products boasting over 7,500 pieces of art from 150 hand picked artists all over the world!  Wowza!  And the best part?  We’ve been able to fulfill our mission to help support art communities all over the world and spread the creative love!

DENYDesigns_Office_16-EDIT

Fast forward to July 2013, we officially started looking for a bigger, better space where the brilliant minds of the DENY employees could run rampant each and every day.  After viewing just about every available space in the great city of Denver, Colorado, we were close to sealing the deal on another space when Kim went out “one last time” to see if there were any last locations to consider.  The realtor made a location suggestion but warned her that it was still very rough. Having no conception of what he was really referring to, she agreed.

Upon entering the lobby, she quickly figured out that it was on the second floor, with no way to get up there except for the 20 foot ladder that stood before her.  In a dress and completely scared of heights, she sent the boys up first, hiked on up while praying for her life and laid eyes on a dusty, disgusting open space that she immediately fell in love with.  It took months and months (and months and months) of work, but finally in November 2014 after walls were put up, a garage door installed, wood floors refinished, new HVAC and windows put in and last but certainly not least, stairs and an elevator added, we were able to set up shop!

With a building four times the size of our last space and an attached showroom to share with customers, we’re in heaven here.  It’s only four blocks from the baseball park, close to several yummy lunch destinations, is housed directly over a brewery (go visit Jagged Mountain Brewery if you haven’t already!) and has so much space that surely we’ll be here for a while!

Come on in! We’d love to have you.

We love to brainstorm crazy ideas right here and see what the world will think.

And, sometimes you just need a giant Wall of Wonder to map out those creative sparks. Hence, the Wall of Wonder.

You’re probably wondering, “Hey! That’s a lot of creative thinking, so how’s my DENY Tray or Wall Art being made?” Well, the office may look pretty, but we like to get our hands dirty too. You could say our warehouse is where the REAL magic happens!

When you order something from DENY, it is printed on demand just for you! And many of our products are handmade from start to finish right here in Denver, Colorado. We don’t believe in inventory. Nope! Instead, we print each product after it’s ordered so that it’s 100% custom-made for each and every customer. How is the finished product created? It would be boring if we printed our products like every other company out there, so being the forward thinkers that we are, we’re one step ahead of the curve using a dye printing process. Bet you’re wondering what the heck that is! In a nutshell, the ink is dyed into the fibers of the fabric or the coated surface instead of the traditionally used direct print. This gives DENY’s products a huge advantage, as our colors stay as fresh and vibrant as the day the product is received! Fade-resistant products make for happy customers!

We’re happy you go to join us for a little behind the scenes peek at DENY. Stop on in if you’re in the Denver neighborhood. We’d love to have you!

 

 

DENY Duvets Make A Statement in HGTV’s Flipping the Block!

blog_lg_flipping_the_block

Did you catch the premier of the new HGTV show, Flipping the Block? Here is what you’re in for:

“In the eight-part series hosted by Josh Temple (“House Crashers”), four teams will transform identical run-down condos and then sell them to the highest bidder, in hopes of taking home a $50,000 prize. Of course, things wouldn’t be nearly as fun without a catch and this one is a doozy — the teams have no idea what they will be doing on the show or anything about the prize money when they arrive on the scene. Tune in to see how each team reacts to the news they will be renovating condos for seven weeks. Each week Temple, along with HGTV staples David Bromstad (“HGTV Design Star”) and Scott McGillivray (“Income Property”) will help guide the teams as they are responsible for designing, renovating and furnishing a different section of the condo.  First up — the master bedroom.”

Check out the full gallery from Episode 1 where teams compete to makeover the Master Bedrooms.

Sounds amazing, right? Well, luckily two of the teams decided that DENY Designs would be the PERFECT place to find that pop of color and personality to inspire their Master Bedrooms around! And, we think that was a GREAT decision because guess what? One of those teams was the winner! Scroll down to see the ugly befores and the breathtaking afters of these duos’ hard work! Congratulations Team Red!

We loved how the Holli Zollinger’s ANNAPURNA DENY Duvet Cover was front and center in this winning room. The dark walnut floors and the clean lines are the perfect backdrop to set this citrus pop of a master bedroom in play! It’s so cheery and bright that we can’t help but get bedroom envy. Great job Team Red! HGTV Scott chose this room as the winner for the quality of workmanship, neutral, sale-friendly color palette and smart closet addition.

Even though Team Black didn’t win, we still think they deserve the spotlight with this ocean inspired bright boudoir. Social Proper’s MINT OMBRE DENY Duvet Cover really sets the dreamy mood with its ocean-like gradient and soft turquoise. And don’t forget Cori Dantini’s Turquoise Scallops DENY Throw Pillow to tie it all together. We think the team did an amazing job adding in a trendy pop of sunny yellow and those super hot Moroccan Poufs to the room. We love it!
