Our stunning state is known for its world-class skiing and snowboarding resorts, spectacular red rock deserts, and as one of the nation’s best states for business. Host of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, Utah boasts a panorama of recreation and culture. From professional sports teams such as the Utah Jazz and Real Salt Lake, performance powerhouses such as the Utah Symphony, Ballet West, and Utah Opera, exceptional art galleries and concert venues, to award-winning restaurants and a lively nightlife scene… Utah showcases a limitless variety of activities and entertainment.

Salt Lake City International Airport is Utah’s gateway to the world. Ranked as one of the nation’s best for on time departures and arrivals and one of the lowest in percentage of flights cancelled. Salt Lake City’s airport is just 15 minutes from most Salt Lake neighborhoods and 40 minutes from Park City.

In the summer, Utah has it all when it comes to hiking, golf, mountain biking, backpacking, camping, fishing, boating, river rafting, rock climbing, and more. Home to the Mighty Five® National Parks, over 40 state parks, countless lakes and reservoirs, and some of the most scenic public and private golf courses in the country, many of which are championship-designated, there is something for everyone during the summer in Utah. Park City alone boasts over 400 continuous miles of trails which span two resorts and has been awarded the highest International Mountain Biking Association’s Gold-Level Ride Center designation.

In the winter, locals and visitors alike enjoy “The Greatest Snow on Earth” at Utah’s 14 world-class ski resorts.

2017 was a year of whites, grays, and marble...2018 has something very different in store! In 2018, look out for earth-tones, stonework, concrete accents, and more. Here are 5 home design trends to watch out for in 2018.

1. Warm Colors Everywhere
Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore have revealed their colors for 2018, a warm green-blue called Oceanside and a heavy, fire red called Caliente. 2018 looks to be the year of warm colors: reds, earthy browns such as camel and rust, burnt yellows, and deep grays. These colors make for a sophisticated and luxurious look. 

2. Rustic Textures 
Concrete, stone, copper, and granite will be taking over 2018. Look out for rustic stone or trough sinks, concrete flooring or countertops, and copper accents in bathrooms and light fixtures. 

3. Farmhouse And Florals
Continuing from 2017, reclaimed wood and shiplap are here to stay in 2018. This continues to be a popular alternative to paint and wallpaper. Additionally, floral prints are back in a bold way. Think high-contrast teals and gold with over-sized blooms. 

4. Color In The Kitchen
While white will always be a classic kitchen color, 2018 looks for more color in the kitchen including grays, blues, and warm woods on the cabinets such as mahogany. Additionally, 2018 sees title backsplashes that imitate wood, concrete, or even wallpaper.

5. Calm, Modern Bedrooms
Bedrooms are getting a minimalist makeover in 2018. With soft neutrals, delicate fabrics, and simple pieces, the bedroom will be designed as a place for calm and relaxation.
