Fabulous homes with sleek gorgeous interiors – are these homes in Palm Springs California? Or closer to home in the historic “Arapahoe Acres” historic district?

Nope, these homes are in rural suburban Denver in Wheat Ridge Colorado and are available to tour this Saturday September 24 from 1pm to 5pm.

If you’re in the Colorado region, this show will be worth the road trip with tours of 6 mid-century and modern homes and an after party at ModMood at 7700 w. 44th avenue.

If you are too far away and just want fabulous home eye candy, visit the tour’s website and gaze at the gorgeous homes!

Tickets are $15.00 per person and may be purchased online or at Mod Mood!  You can also pick up Maps for the tour on the day of the tour at ModMood.

Wheat Ridge 2020 a community-based, non-profit development corporation charged with advancing Wheat Ridge as a vibrant and sustainable community is sponsoring the event, has Organized the Tour this year to Promote their City’s Architectural Heritage and Lifestyle.
