Scottsdale, AZ

Desert contemporary can be interpreted in different ways. Clean, modern, textural, artful. This Scottsdale retreat for a Minnesota family was transformed from a 1999 contemporary into a warm and more elegant version of itself, through an extensive renovation.

The grain of the rift cut ash floors flows diagonally through the kitchen and living spaces…an earthy contrast to the vertical lines of the custom cabinetry. Asymmetrical linear reveals on the kitchen hood are repeated under the walnut eating counter. Textured materials, and a curved built-in console add visual interest to this family room, and dramatic light fixtures paired with large scaled art were important tools to add the touch of ‘desert glam’ style requested by the homeowners, who emailed an enthusiastic note of thanks…“The end result is stunning and sophisticated, yet fun and unique.  I love that our home has become a destination for our friends and family that we can be proud to share!”

Sweeping views of the golf course at Ancala Country Club are a colorful and vibrant complement to the neutral and timeless palette of taupes, ivories, and greys. Custom luxury renovations are some of our most gratifying projects!
