The cover art titled “Equilibrium” is symbolic for the annual May women’s issue. Finding balance in the and trial and tribulations of life. From the artist herself, she tells us a bit about the piece "Equilibrium." Michelle Robinson: I can clearly recall the moment the image appeared in my mind. Late in the evening as I was lounging on my couch, a figure bent gracefully with purpose towards the earth and balancing a celestial sphere on her back appeared suddenly in my mind like a strike of lightning. Immediately, the lines and shapes united harmoniously and with intention. Then, I scanned my collection of

soon became a living symbol -- a symbol of balance. The sphere floats perfectly centered as if weightless on her rounded spine. Her pose is supported by strong limbs that are firmly planted into the earth. She is unwavering. She reminds us that "Equilibrium" can be achieved within the hustle and bustle of life.

AN OASIS ON SOUTH FOREST LANE CHRISTINE TUNKEY'S STUNNING GREENWOOD VILLAGE HOME — WITH IT'S SERENE, LUXURIOUS LANDSCAPE — IS ELEGANT, COMFORTABLE, AND ON THE MARKET ARTICLE KELLI RUHL

Cherry Creek Lifestyle | May 2018


THE MOMENT CHRISTINE TUNKEY WALKED INTO THE FOYER OF THE HOME ON SOUTH FOREST LANE, SHE KNEW SHE WAS HOME. Two-story ceilings, a sparkling chandelier and a stunning view through the living room to the house’s remarkable backyard left Tunkey in awe. Now, thirteen years later, Tunkey still speaks wistfully of the place she has been lucky enough to make her own. The home, which Tunkey is now selling through Karina Christensen and Lisa Quoy of the Denver Luxe Team, is “elegant but comfortable.” It boasts six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, not to mention an office, study, walk-out basement-complete with a theater room, full kitchen and steam room-and much, much more. Curved archways and high ceilings lend the home an elegant grace, while incredible details like the immaculate cherry-wood paneling of the study imbue the space with style and class. Though the 7,456 square foot home is stunning in its own right, it is outshone by the land surrounding it. To call it a “backyard” would do the space a serious injustice; this “secluded, private oasis,” as Christensen aptly describes it, features a heated lap pool and hot tub, as well as a large patio equipped with a built-in grill. While the amenities are undoubtedly fantastic, what makes this space a true oasis is the jaw-dropping landscaping: statuesque trees surround the property, which boasts a collection of peaceful ponds and a tranquil waterfall circled by a luxurious array of flowers and shrubbery. As Tunkey explains, “The backyard was designed so that you could escape life and feel hidden in the beauty that surrounds it.”

OPEN HOUSE

(CON TI N U ED)

AS TUNKEY EXPLAINS, “THE BACKYARD WAS DESIGNED SO THAT YOU COULD ESCAPE LIFE AND FEEL HIDDEN IN THE BEAUTY THAT SURROUNDS IT.”

Over their years in the home, Tunkey and her family completed a vast number of renovations, adding modern touches to the house’s “old-money style.” They built an additional room upstairs over the garage, which has become Tunkey’s favorite room in the home (if you force her to choose just one, that is); they extended the Romeo and Juliet balconette off of the master bedroom into a more expansive, comfortable porch; they converted the basement exercise room into a movie theater; they extended the office to include a private parlor; they updated all of the windows throughout the home, and last, but certainly not least, they transformed a cement slab outdoor patio into the gorgeous backyard getaway that it is today. The home is located on a legacy lot in the highly sought-after Preserve-a private neighborhood designed to accommodate families with its large lots and winding roads, perfect for peaceful walks and bike rides. As Tunkey explains, the community is very close, the kind of place where the staff at local restaurants know everyone’s name. She has adored living in this community, and gets emotional speaking about her home, the neighborhood and the fantastic memories she and her children have created there. As she moves on to a new adventure, she only hopes that whoever ends up on South Forest Lane loves and enjoys the home as much as she has. 30

DENVER’S TOP MOVERS AND SHAKERS LEAVE LOVE NOTES FOR THEIR FATHERS, MENTORS, COLLEAGUES, PAST SELVES AND YOU... ARTICLE MARLEY JERANKO ILLUSTRATIONS KATIE VULETICH

You can plan and ponder — that’s all good — but it’s truly more important to get in there and do. I have what I like to call a “busy brain.” I’m always dreaming up beautiful treasures that I hope my customers will fall in love with. Some days are very long and filled with nail-biting and white knuckles, as we careen dangerously close to tippling over deadlines, but when the dust settles, it makes you go ahhhhh...  Go chase that muse. She makes her appearance graciously and swiftly, but like any creative knows, you never know when she’ll return. I still wonder if she’ll appear again when I have a momentary creative block, but trust me, it’s a part of the process. When you catch your breath and have time to sit back and enjoy what you’ve made, you’ll know it was worth the work. Do. Listen. Question. Learn. Succeed. Fail. Meditate. Breathe. Love. Eat real food. Repeat,

I’ve heard your stories, Dad. An Irish immigrant growing up in Harlem: as soon as you graduated from high school, you worked a summer as a bartender and saved up all your money. At the end of that summer, you took your earnings to a bus station and asked how far away from New York City they would take you. It was Santa Fe, New Mexico. What a huge leap of faith to leave everything you knew. I think of that often when I take a deep breath and take a chance. That's what I’ve done in my career: take chances. From stock trader to sales to real estate — San Francisco to Denver — I finally landed on the right one. But as exciting as transitioning can be, when I see my clients take those next steps in their lives, I know how overwhelming it can be.  Just breathe and take a chance. This is the lesson you’ve taught me, and now I pass it on every day.  Love,

Some bars can come off as pretentious and unwelcoming to people who maybe don't know as much about wine and spirits — but that's ridiculous! You have to do something different. That’s what I did… I created an environment where my guests would feel welcome to explore different wines and expand their horizons free of judgment. I’ve done and continue to do everything I can to break down barriers in this business. I created a concept and executed it in my own way. That is an essential part of being an entrepreneur: being willing to break the mold. So, put yourself out there. Believe in yourself and work harder than everyone else, and you can and will be successful. That "success " may not look exactly like what you had originally imagined (bar helix is a perfect example), but you can accomplish the goals you set for yourself. With love + champagne,

Do you know why I created Bad News Babes Social Club? Because of women like you: working hard and unapologetically walking their own path to create lives and futures they are proud of. Do you know why I went to school to be a nail technician? I want to be a better boss to you. Working by your side every day and seeing how physically and mentally demanding this work can be has been the most eye-opening learning experiences of my life! From owning our businesses and raising babies, to learning how to be great partners and mothers: I learn from you, too — failures and all.  You make me want to work harder every day to continually create a healthy and happy environment — you have and always will continue to influence my career.

There’s never enough time in the day, is there? Coffee. Exercise. More coffee. Clients. Phone calls. Errands — how do we keep the energy and creativity up in the chaos we call life? For me, the answer is mornings. In the morning, I knock out my most mentally-intensive tasks. I find comfort in order, and that allows me space to relax and let my mind think through more creative, big-picture ideas and aspirations. I read and find inspiration everywhere: travel, food, design, and of course, a lot of Instagram. There’s always more we could be doing: more press coverage we could garner for our clients; more ideas to bring to the table; more industry innovations to follow and implement; more to give ourselves.  Keep pushing yourself forward, and never be satisfied. xoxo,

DEAR,

(CON TI N UED)

It all comes full circle and makes perfect sense in retrospect: you’re an odd child, and that has made me into the entrepreneur I am today. I remember you roaming about on your own, soaking in the world, collecting stones, and reading books about their healing benefits. You harvest and grind barks and berries, concocting beauty potions; make your own yogurt and use it for facial mask treatments; make floral facial steams; and put the neighbor’s mint and vanilla extracts in lotions to give little spa style massages — you aren’t like other children. No, but you’re forming inklings of the apothecary artisan you’re going to be.   These things that you’ve created, I’ve not stopped since. In health + beauty,

My family struggled. I didn't have the finer things. I suppose you could say I was the salt of the earth — “hillbilly,” and proud of it. But one of the most difficult decisions of my life was choosing to leave my career in Ionizing Radiology. I was being exposed to radiation day in and day out. Dark circles, rashes, immunity issues — my eyebrows even fell out at one point; I felt I was dying...  I wanted to be healthy and live. Where could I go with radiology background?  The light side: a place where collagen grows, skin damage is reversed, and human cells flourish. You got it — lasers, visible light, and non-ionizing medical aesthetics. It ended up being a perfect marriage after a difficult divorce year. From a fire within, the hillbilly peach blossomed. In love and light,

DESCRIBE YOUR ARTISTIC EDGE. I am not afraid to try new things even if it means failing. To me, failure is as essential to my art as it is to my life. YOUR MUSE? Artists often see themselves as bringing art into a community; but, I believe that art already exists in the rich and complex culture of a place.  HOW WOULD YOU EXPLAIN YOUR USE OF COLOR? Vivid! Color is just so much fun! Even the slightest adjustment in light can change the way we perceive something. HOW CAN OTHERS COMMISSION WORK IN THE FUTURE? Commissions make great gifts! Whether it’s a small-scale pet portrait or large-scale portrait mural, I do it all. You can contact me directly at kvuletich@gmail.com or via my website at KVuletich.com.

GIVING BACK

THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS FINDING JOY WITH GABRIELLA KOVACH ARTICLE BEN WIESE | PHOTOGRAPHY POPPIES + PAISLEY PHOTOGRAPHY

42

Cherry Creek Lifestyle | May 2018


"I'M JOYFUL BECAUSE I WANT OTHER KIDS TO KNOW THAT THEY COULD DO THIS WITHOUT BEING ALL GRUMPY AND [SAD]," SAYS GABRIELLA. "THEY COULD SMILE WHILE THEY’RE GOING THROUGH IT."

Though Gabriella would be quickly forgiven for lashing out in anger or out of fear, she does not let herself off the hook. Not when someone out there in need of encouragement could be watching. As if facing peers in school isn’t difficult enough, Gabriella cannot look the way she wants to at this point in her life. She becomes self-conscious when she goes swimming because of surgery scars and jealous of classmates because her hair won’t grow as long. They are more than fair trade-offs, but they are still reminders that life is not as fair as it should be. Gabriella is on track to a full recovery, but her life isn't tethered to her health. She's no prisoner of cancer, nor of the thought of death, but a reminder to others that cancer can kill bodies but does not have to kill a person's spirit.

“NEEDLES DO NOT LIKE ME LATELY,” SAYS EIGHT-YEAR-

Gabriella is as comfortable talking about friends that have died from cancer and feeling bad from chemo as she is talking about school. Such bleak discussion is not only reality for the second grader; it is by choice: because she can be candid about the bad, she can be candid about the good. “I’m kind of happy that I have leukemia—kind of. I’m not happy that I have to go through all the chemotherapy and go to the hospital—I’m happy because it gave me more joy. More joy in God and I get to spend more time with my parents and with my brothers and sisters.” With a platform that reaches from local news to Denver Nuggets games to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Gabriella’s message is simple: leukemia will not ruin her joy, and it doesn’t have to for others. "I'm joyful because I want other kids to know that they could do this without being all grumpy and [sad]," says Gabriella. "They could smile while they’re going through it."
