Ikea adding store to Denver, Colorado?

So, I've written about our need for an
Ikea in Denver, Boulder, or just the Front Range of Colorado. I'm not picky - I'll drive 2 hours to get there. I just want it within 2 hours and not the 15 hours to Phoenix.

I was searching for Ikea Colorado today to see if there were any news and in fact saw that Ikea is looking for stores in Denver! Excellent news. Unforutnately, the article on Ikea's search in Colorado is from April 2005 and it was that an Ikea store in Denver is a few years away.

Ikea Colors Rejected

Apparently some knucklehead in Lone Tree decided that the Ikea store colors are too garish so they don't want a store. Quoting from page 2 of the online story:

In casual discussions with IKEA last year, Lone Tree officials rejected the company's signature bright blue and yellow store colors because they don't fit the city's earth tone-oriented design guidelines. But the city seems to be reconsidering IKEA, according to real estate brokers.

Thanks. I wonder if the green of Ikea's millions in sales tax revenue is also the wrong color?
