This home, in the exclusive Desert Mountain community of Carefree, AZ, belongs to the owners of a local African art gallery, so incorporating their treasured African art, furniture, and accessories was our focus. The main project was a bedroom addition that sits beautifully on the floor of the Sonoran desert, for a peaceful outdoor evening retreat. Other areas of the home were included in this project, including dining room, bathrooms, and a guest bedroom.
This bedroom won a First prize ASID Design Excellence Award in 2013 for Best Singular Space and the remodel of this home appeared in The Arizona Republic newspaper in 2011 as a feature story in the “Cool Homes” section.
