We are thrilled to share images of our first photoshoot from this spring! We are showcasing our quirky and playful style in a very editorial way. The focus of the shoot was on our installation, styling, and staging services. As you can see, we brought a lot of things to play with onsite. We are featuring some of our new rental furniture and accessories. The wooden framed backdrop was hand built in our makeshift workshop (aka Lyndse’s garage where there are no boys allowed!) and we supplied some fun props to experiment with (over-sized beanbag chair and lots of mirrors). We were very intrigued how art and design can influence events. To sum up, we created a whimsical, outdoor shoot in a very simple, modern way.
All the prepping, building, gathering, and coffee drinking were worth it. We want to thank all the various vendors (credited below) that helped make this happen. The final product blew us away! Thank you to all the helpers that were on site that day, along with the countless supporters and encouragers in the background.

Over the past year in Denver I have had the privilege to get to know the organization Restore Innocence. Restore Innocence is a non-profit in Colorado that helps girls who have been victims of human sex trafficking. This organization helps provide shelters for these girls (who often have no place to go) as well as mentoring programs that help provide a safe and open space for these girls to talk and begin the healing process. In addition to these programs, they also create restoration bags which are filled with new items for girls once they have been rescued from the streets. I truly believe in this organization’s mission and what they do on a daily basis. It has been a joy to offer up design services for their annual benefit dinners and help out in any way that I can. This years 5th annual benefit dinner is titled ‘Her Story’ and will be taking place outside of the Denver metro area on April 26th.

As we move into spring, we are evolving our brand and style here at ENLY. Although this is exciting, we found that we can’t get our hands on the furniture pieces we want to use (in upcoming styled shoots – stay tuned!) or recommend. So, we decided to jump right in and are happy to announce that ENLY is developing a boutique rental side to our business. We are adding a few select pieces that fit our style to this ever growing business of ours. We are kicking it off with a few chairs and stools from Bend Goods, see above. The clean lines, contemporary design, and spunky colors are just what we are looking for!
We’ll have more info on these pieces in the coming months, but don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to use our pieces in your next styled shoot or party this spring and summer!
At the beginning of February, Vail and Beaver Creek resorts hosted the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. Athletes from all over the world participated. We had the pleasure of collaborating with Pink Monkey Solutions on the Arlberg Lounge. This project involved taking the existing C Bar and transforming it into a traditional Austrian ski lounge for the duration of the Ski Championships. We were able to create a concept board along with visual renderings of the space. The renderings were used prior to the championships to entice visitors to stop by during the events. Pink Monkey then built and installed the furniture, signage, and wood walls. The space, food, attire, and décor all helped accentuate the Austrian traditions and customs so visitors could experience a true Austria ski lounge.
You can visit their facebook page for tons of images or check out the video below to see the space after Pink Monkey’s install.
What or who is ENLY you may ask? ENLY is an event design company based in Denver, CO. It is run by the ladies of Lattes in the Lounge. We started the company based on our backgrounds in Interior Architecture, a love for the temporary, and a passion for finding ways in which to use space to create moments and experiences. We wanted to discover new ways to approach design and strive to create memorable experiences that leave people with a lasting impression. Our inquisitive and creative minds are continually searching to find new and inspiring ways in which to foster and enrich social and community gatherings.
ENLY offers event services from start to finish. We can fill a specific need or walk a client through the entire process of coordination, production, and design. We can plan a clients event, brand it, or come in at the end to bring it all together.
At ENLY, we understand that every event is different and thus every solution and end result will be different. We don’t just want to focus on colors, theme, and material palette but we also want to examine layouts, functionality, how social interactions will occur, and how the use of spatial elements will enhance the overall experience. Throughout the process of planning and designing for an event we find value in sharing our ideas through visuals, 3-d models, renderings, concept boards, and more so that the client can better understand the vision we have in executing their ideas. In the end, we strive to create memorable experiences that tell a story through tactile and spatial elements.
