Perfect Pairings

Creating harmonious indoor and outdoor sanctuaries that unify well requires great foresight and tremendous collaboration between homeowners and their design teams. In Arizona, with our abundance of beautiful weather, we have the ability to bring our indoors out and our outdoors in which give designers an opportunity to create perfect pairings.

Our design team had the privilege to work both indoors and out on a charming house built in the 1950’s. Updating this residence yet still holding on to the original architectural structure and originality was rewarding, educational and actually easier than I had imagined it would be. Renovating the existing space both indoors and out to an updated open feel and turning individual smaller areas into spacious larger rooms automatically modernized this homes appearance. By creating an outdoor lifestyle area it added the feel of an additional room.

Rejuvenating the kitchen to incorporate beauty, space and performance and meet the standards and requests of our homeowner who loves to cook was a gratifying design experience. This kitchen is contemporary and sophisticated yet comfortable and inviting. Soft and subtle however full of contrast with white cabinetry and dark granite countertops and striking appliances all sitting on top of the original wood floor that was given a restored finish to help make this home shine.

A great deal of attention to many details helped keep the charm of this older home in an innovative way. The creation of a fireplace and recreation of original stone on another through the eyes of an artist, perfect placement of granite tiles, selection of the right simple cabinet door styles and the hardware chosen to bring them to life, enhancement of architectural details and additions where needed…the list goes on and on. Truly a perfect sanctuary!
