Craving some of the eclectic design I saw in Venice Beach, I embarked on a bit of Boulder exploration upon return. My desires were quenched by the fashion and interior designers housed at è bella. I had met CarolAnn Wachter before, and finally made my way over to the beautiful home decor shop where she sells her clothing collections. Amidst è bella’s luxe pillows and rugs, CarolAnn’s feminine fashion label, Mind, takes shape.
