Santa Fe

Although this architectural style is distinctly related to designs found throughout the Southwest, and in particularly in New Mexico, the spaciousness of the rooms, and the generous use of large windows captivating the views of the Sonoran Desert, are not a traditional aspect of Santa Fe design. But the rounded beams, called vigas, and the rounded vertical posts, along with lighted niches for artwork and Saltillo tile flooring, definitely speak to the native roots of this gorgeous home in Desert Mountain, Scottsdale. The owner is an artist herself, and has painted a number of canvases for the home, in addition to creating many bronze sculptures that appear on tables and surfaces throughout the home. She also has an eye for unique pieces of art that make the home a very personal expression of their lives.
